Many U.S. presidents helped the parks, but Theodore Roosevelt did the most. He created five national parks before the Park Service even existed. These five parks were Crater Lake, Wind Cave, Sullys Hill, Mesa Verde, and Platt National Park. He signed the Antiquities Act on June 8, 1906. This act allowed the president to make something like a big sculpture into a national monument.
President Andrew Jackson was a very popular president and did a lot of things during his presidency. But in my opinion, I think he was not democratic because he wanted everything done his way or no way, like during the Indian Removal act in Document 10. He wanted the Indians land so he had his soldiers move them \west into the Indian territory. One way that President Andrew Jackson was democratic was his Bank Veto Message to Congress in Document 4. From what I read and what he said, I thought it sounded like he didn’t want to shut down the United States Bank.
Even though the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range was discovered by non-Native Americans a long while ago, it was not until around 1834 when the first non-Native American eyes set sight on Yosemite Valley. After the United States Army sent off a 58-man exploration of the Sierra Nevada mountains, in hopes of reaching the base of the mountains, the men came across Yosemite Valley. They never actually entered the valley; however, since Yosemite Valley is one of the most well concealed geographic locations of California, it was a miracle that those men laid eyes on the
When he was seventeen, he wanted to join the British Navy but his mother disapproved. Instead, he became a county surveyor for Culpeper County. In late 1752, Washington became a commander of the Virginia militia. He had no military experience before-hand and was in the French and Indian War. George Washington was a brave man and that was proven several times for example, when he was 21, he went on a 900-mile trip to give the French a message.
Ding Darling was the person who started the National Wildlife Federation in 1936. He convinced President Franklin Roosevelt, a man who cared deeply about animals and nature, to bring together more than 2,000 hunters, anglers, and conservationists across the country. He did this because there was no nationwide group supporting conservation and many people cared about wildlife. When they started, their name was the General
President Theodore Roosevelt became president in 1901 after William McKinley. Roosevelt was vice-president but took the presidential position when McKinley was assassinated. He was the youngest president in United States History, but brought new excitement and power to the presidency as he led Congress and the American public towards progressive reforms and a strong foreign policy. Teddy Roosevelt had a prodigious impact on the United States during his presidency from 1901 to 1908, changing the landscape of the U.S. politically, economically, and socially. With all of his accomplishments while he was in office, consisting of the Square Deal, preserving lands, and many more, he improved the U.S overall.
The Homestead Act promoted westward expansion and further displaced Indians. It allowed any American, including freed slaves to claim 160 acres of federal land. Eventually, 256 million acres would be claimed. After claiming their land the settler would then have to live on that piece of ground for five years continuously for them to have finally owned their claimed ground. In the winter of 1862, President Lincoln appoints one of his friends, John Evans to become the Territorial Governor of Colorado.
He also destroyed the National Bank and authorized the Specie Circular. Because of these infringements on the rights of the people, Andrew Jackson was not a champion of the common man; the nickname “King Andrew,” from his opponents was accurate. When he was elected president, Andrew Jackson felt that he needed to remove John Quincy Adams’ appointees from office. To him, the clear answer was to replace them with his own followers and friends, creating a government where only one political party was effectively represented by presidential appointments. This use of the spoils system put people who were not qualified in powerful positions simply as a reward for supporting Jackson.
Knowing that Meighen would become Prime Minister if he did not intervene, he believed that Arthur Meighen would not be able to govern. But only he himself would be up to the task. Julian even warned king of trying to gain the seats the progressives had, saying, “ See the position, you will be at the mercy of the progressives, you will have to go to them, or be at their bidding, the country will say you are caring only for the office, and the fruits of office, they will tear at you.” Even after hearing this remark King still believed that Arthur was incapable of carrying on his Majesty’s government. To see Arthur unable to take office and usurp his government King was willing to go to almost any length to remain as or become Prime Minister. This of course included siding with the progressives who if Mackenzie wanted to capture the office would have to listen to their demands however bad it was for Canada, a willing participant or not.
Trotsky ultimately ended up missing the funeral, and Stalin took advantage of this. He told people that Lenin and Trotsky were not close friends, and because people admired Lenin so much, they did not want a ruler who was much more different than him. Stalin, at the funeral, carried Lenin’s coffin. This made people think that Stalin and Lenin were close friends, which was actually not the case at all (Ronald). This helped kick Trotsky out of the competition, and gave Stalin a huge
