In “Gone to America: Anti-Irish Sentiment” The History Place tells of the difficulties and racism that the Irish faced as they immigrated to the United States in search of a living for themselves and their families. To begin, the author illustrates how many Irish were actually coming over from Ireland fleeing persecution and famine; they make up the majority of immigrants in the United States during the mid-1800’s, and, additionally, alludes to the swells of Irish arriving in the cities. Furthermore, the author continues to illustrate how the Irish tended to stay in close knit communities much like they had at home; this was partly due to the poverty of the Irish as well, the author states. The author states the differences between the Irish at home and the Irish
The disease decimated the local population and was one of the main reasons for the fall of the Aztec and Inca empires. Likewise, on the eastern coast of North America, the disease was introduced by the early settlers and led to the death of millions of natives. The damaging effects of smallpox is often considered an example of biological warfare. Another aspect contributing to smallpox in the Americas was the slave trade because many slaves came from regions in Africa where smallpox was endemic. Smallpox affected all levels of society.
DBQ: Famine in Ethiopia: How did the government make it worse? (hook)From 1983-1985, a famine in Ethiopia caused millions to die. In 1984, grain prices increased by 300% and five Ethiopian provinces set all-time lows for rainfall. Many people, blamed the famine on the drought, but later figured out that the real cause was politics. Soviet-backed communist Derg took over and worsened the famine.
Outline: African Americans * Immigrants* Rural Farmers Women of colour Extra: WASPS Prohibition Industry Women "All Americans experienced the boom of the 1920 's" In the United States, a popular belief is that all Americans experienced the boom of the 1920 's. However, minority groups were left out of the country 's economic success at the time. African Americans remained a minority group even with movements such as the 'Harlem Renaissance ' and the creation of the NAACP. Similar to African Americans, immigrants old and new were often below or just above the poverty line and were still 'last hired, first fired ' with hate being directed to their entry and existence from the people as well as the government. As the rest of the America
Stalin’s power stems from his autocratic power and strict policies. And from these policies, Stalin damaged the Soviet Union forever. Communism has forever damaged Russia, as millions of innocents died under its rule, with millions repressed, and its political environment in shambles. Most prominent, the policies placed under the Soviet Union led to the deaths of millions of innocents. Most deaths were caused by either artificial famines, or executions.
Colonists carried diseases overseas that killed millions of non-Europeans. In India and Africa, colonial rule caused an increase in prevalent diseases. The modern transportation and communication links that enabled colonists to travel around the world, as their empire grew, could prove to be a double-sided sword. Not only could Europeans travel half way around the world, but when they travelled back, they brought new and deadly diseases with them. The most devastating example of this was the way that Cholera was brought back to Britain from the Indian sub-continent with devastating results.
Disease played a major role in the destruction of Indian life. Early settlers brought a plethora of diseases that attacked and easily destroyed the unadapted immune systems of the Native Americans. These diseases killed many Native Americans and had severe impacts on their population. An example can be observed in the article when it describes how the Caddoan population lost around ninety-six percent of its population due to disease. Another example of how disease devastated the natives can be seen in the article when it describes how a single Spanish soldier that suffered from smallpox spread the disease to the Incas which eliminated half of their population.
The outcomes of the Rwandan genocide were horrific. The outcome in Rwanda was that nearly 2 million people died. Many structures were destroyed during the Rwandan genocide. During the genocide, women were raped so there were around 2,000 – 5,000 new children born. The outcomes of the Rwandan genocide are sad and
It was the Spring of 1348, and the citizens of Europe were malnourished due to limited food supplies for such a large population. This made them more susceptible to the outbreak of the Black Death. The Black Death originated in Asia, then moved westward into Sicily. From Sicily, the plague crept its way up through Europe infecting millions of people, in total killing more than one third of Europe’s population. In fact, over fifty percent of the population of Siena died, along with fifty percent of Paris, eighty percent of Florence, and over two thirds of Venice.
As Williams eloquently states, arriving in America, the Irish immigrants had to adjust to their new country and Americans had to adjust to their new fellow citizens. Although coming to “a land of immigrants,” the Irish were in many ways the first “emigrant group.” Arriving in such numbers that Americans were not prepared to receive them. Americans were, however, prepared to recognize the Irish, thanks to a set of stereotypes that were already a part of the Anglo-American culture; a romantic stereotype of the exile in flight from a tragic land of beauty; and a comic stereotype of the wild, irresponsible Paddy (Williams 1996, p.
Different points will also be talked about between the two incoming immigrant states as they experience many obstacles coming and being in America. Scotch-Irish and Latin Americans, both faced needs for a better life by moving to the United States only because of the circumstances that had occurred in their homeland. Scots-Irish left Ulster, which was their homeland, for different purposes. Religious persecution and economic factors were reasons that pushed them away, which according to The Scots-Irish Journey to the New World, “…Between 1714 and 1719 Ulster suffered a succession of bad harvests and by 1718 the linen industry was also in recession” (“The Scots-Irish Journey…”). As the Scotch Irish suffered
The 1930s were the turning point of Native American life. Due to segregation against Native Americans and other non-white ethnic groups, unemployment for native americans was already very high, but as the stock market crashed and as many jobs instantly disappeared, the work opportunities for the Natives Americans were utterly eradicated. Unemployment rates for the Natives rose so high that most were left jobless and stranded in poverty. Reservations, most already in horrible conditions, began to deteriorate to even lower levels. The crisis for the United States was arguably even more devastating on the other ethnic groups.
The Movement of People Between 1508 and 1697, the Spanish Conquistadors took over many of the Central and South American tribes, often destroying many of the great cities that had previously housed these clans (Alchin, 2015). These Spanish either killed the natives or put them as slaves (Darlington et al, 2012). The majority of these slaves were working in the gold mines, which meant working 108 hours a week in terrible conditions (Darlington et al, 2012). Some of these slaves died from the punishments that they would receive from the Conquistadors, whereas others would die from European diseases such as smallpox (Darlington el at, 2012). This caused a requirement for new slaves.
“A violent kind of smallpox rages in Charles-Town that brings most of the businesses to a halt. However, several businesses fled to the country.” This quote is saying smallpox was bad at this time in Charles-Town, many families lost loved ones and lost homes due to businesses ending.
