The despair that pangs my heart is only the beginning of my troubling sorrow. I Chancellor Constantine Wolfgang have been run out of my home, drove away by the mad king of Chillingham castle. If only the king would be reasonably, but he is indulged in his own self-glory that none shall help if it make him look weak. A warning that Ruvik was coming to take the Kings head, but no the king said “Ruvik has been dead for years I remember plunging my sword deep into his heart.” The King laughed at me yet I pleaded and pleaded and then my worst mistake threatening my king to listen to my admonitions. The king walked up to me and unsheathed his dagger he gouged my left eye and told the men to take my away to exile me far from the kingdom for my insubordination.
The Native Americans had to be relocated to different land, so these Indians were forced to march the “Trail of Tears” in which approximately 4000 Indians were subject to fate’s hands and died, or were murdered due to being non-cooperative. Since Andrew Jackson decided to commit these immoral acts he gave himself a very bad reputation when it came to the indians and in doing this he allowed history to judge him and it’s not in a positive manner. Andrew Jackson made good and bad contributions, but in the eyes of many people including me the bad decisions or immorale ones outweigh the positive impacts he had as a president. It's very debatable whether Andrew Jackson was a good or bad president because of his public speaking and how the people loved him, since of his background and his ability to connect with the people of the United States, and all the bad he did to the Indians without even consideration of
Andrew Jackson: A Monster Some may think that Andrew Jackson was a hero, but his horrific actions during his time as president, prove otherwise. While he was president, he did many things that made a negative impact to our country. Nobody should forget these things, for they are what make him a monster. Those things include, The Trail of Tears, the fact that he enjoyed violence, and that he was a murderer. To begin, Andrew Jackson was the reason that so many Indians had to leave their homes.
The cave art depicts a scene of a man shooting an arrow at another man on a mountain. The circumstances of this depiction, such as the man chasing down another man shows details that were almost like a documentary of what happened to Ötzi. This could be the actual story or could be a tribal depiction of what this covetous culture’s methods used to acquire power and position. Perhaps the killer told his own story or maybe there were witnesses who depicted the horrors they saw. In conclusion, it seems obvious that that there was foul play involved in the slaughter of Ötzi.
When Claggart begins to accuse Billy of starting a mutiny, Billy begins to feel afraid. Out of fear and for self defense, Billy strikes Claggart on the head. This action kills Claggart because he falls and hits his head. Some believe that Billy’s punishment was deserved because of the fact that Claggart died from the hit. Viewers with this viewpoint believe that no matter if Billy meant to kill Claggart or not, he committed a crime, therefore, he should be punished.
Therefore, according to Morgan and Cody (as well as other contemporaries sharing similar viewpoints), as Americans gradually permeated Native American territories and established towns and cities, these Native American communities—supposedly made up of primitive barbarians—would fail to come to terms with American efforts to “civilize” Native Americans, thus resulting in warfare between the U.S. and these Indian tribes, and eventually leading to the total genocide of the Indian population (2). However, although warfare did erupt between the two groups—which resulted in the extermination of the majority of Native Americans—theories of total extinction of the Native Americans were inaccurate for two dominant reasons: one, a small but significant group of tribes remained after the intrusion of White settlers, and two, Indians tribes were not made up of simpleminded brutes, but intelligent peoples who were, initially, willing to negotiate with U.S. envoys before war erupted. Both of these facts disproved the claim that Native American stubbornness to adapt to American civilization would be the only cause of their demise—instead, it was the U.S.’ fault
Sam’s death was brutal and totally uncalled for. Sam was executed because he was falsely accused of cattle theft; “‘Timmy, get Colonel Parsons,’ he cried. ‘They’re taking me in as a cattle thief ’”(180). Tim went through great lengths to try and get him out. Sam was a great soldier on the battlefield, you would expect that he would get some telling points, but it didn’t matter.
But what we did not know is that they were members of the rival cartel called Cartel De Sinaloa and that one of them was the son of an important member and that is when we notice we have messed up. They were known for their brutality and mass assassinations. We freaked out when we found out and asked ourselves what to do because we knew they would come for vengeance. Without any notice, the next day 6 people were found dead chopped into pieces in plastic bags with a letter saying “Esto es por nuestra gente y esto es apenas el empiezo” or “ This is for our people and this is just the beginning” Everybody was scared and started to leave the town, and within a matter of days it became a ghost town and a war field. My mom and decided to come to the United States because she said we were going to be safer and my father had to stay because he was a member of the cartel that was fighting the Sinaloa Cartel.
Victor had agreed to this and postponed marrying Elizabeth for two years. He brought his friend along, but dropped him off with a different friend because he couldn’t dig up bodies with the monster and Henry looking over his shoulder. As Victor began making a companion for the monster, he decided that he could not go through with this because it isn’t safe for society and even though his current monster is peaceful, the other one may not be the same. The monster watched as Victor destroyed his future companion, and then decided to destroy anyone who was close to Victor as a means of
In a nation of pioneers and settlers, where we capitalize upon a bear wielding a firearm to represent “our right to bear arms” there has come to be quite a bit of bloodshed because of that right. Fear has been interwoven into the school system, a kind of fear that even the greatest school safety measures cannot prevent. Such instances being the Columbine, Newtown, and the more recent Parkland school shooting. It cannot be controlled who does the killing, but what can be isolated is the weapon those chose as their aid in the slaughtering. So many lives are lost in these devastations a step towards preventing more from being lost is increasing gun control.
The Battle of Fallen Timbers was significant because it forced the Native Americans to surrender their land and it warned other Native American tribes against opposing the US. To begin, the Battle of Fallen Timbers was a gruesome battle in which many Native American people were slaughtered by the US Army, lead by “Mad” Anthony Wayne, to stop them from attacking American settlers in order to get them to leave the Ohio River Valley. The gruesome defeat lead to the Native Americans surrendering most of the Ohio River Valley through the Treaty of Greenville. This bloody defeat also served as a warning to other Native American tribes that they did not want to oppose the US government because they did not want to fight the US army. In conclusion,
They way they kept soldiers fighting is cruel, they way they killed people from other empires is not necessary, and the way they got married depending on the situation is unfair. To begin with the Genghis Khan way he set up his soldiers to fight is cruel. Having his soldiers fight is groups, if any more than one man leaves to fight his group members are put to death. (Doc 2) This meaning that the people who leave know that them leaving will cause the death of people who are willing to fight. This is really
They act like everybody should feel sorry for the colonists for stealing innocent people’s land and killing them. Throughout A Patriot’s History of the United States there are many incidents like on page 20 where it states, “killing more than three hundred settlers, the English retaliated by destroying Indian cornfields.” Was killing at least thousands of Native Americans before not enough? The authors are trying to make it seem like the colonists did nothing wrong, and they act like the Native Americans are just the “hostile Natives” for no reason throughout the entire book. I prefer A People’s History of the United States to A Patriot’s History of the United States. It explains history much clearer and is much more accurate.
There seems to be many causes of the violence in the southwest mostly and primarily due to brutal and senseless encounters at Apache Pass. These encounters came about due to personal vendettas from the U.S government and an Apache leader named Cochise. For a while the two had peace between them before farm was raided and a child happened to be taken causing the American government to be suspicious and met with Cochise who was known for having peaceful talks with Americans prior to this encounter. After this meeting the army decided to hold Cochise’s family hostage even though he had promised to help the government find out where the boy went. After this Cochise had to escape without his family and apparently a few members of the Apache tribe were killed and caused Cochise to become more of a revenge killer than a war hero!
He later recalled that he had “a good many bloody struggles with the mosquitoes.” Before Abraham joined the army, his friends tried to talk him into becoming a candidate for the state legislature. Encouraged by their faith, he announced his candidacy in March, 1832. He came home from the Black Hawk war only 2 weeks before the election. He was defeated with 277 out of 300 for votes. He thought of studying law, but thought he couldn 't succeed without a better education.
