Both the New England Colonies and Middle Colonies were very unique in their own ways. In the New England colonies, the southern colonies were near the Appalachian mountains, other higher elevation, and some flat land spread out causing them to have rocky soil, hilly landscapes, and flat land. There were also coastal port towns near the East Coast. Since most of the land was unsuitable for farming, the land was granted to a group and towns were subdivided among families. In fact, the only fertile land was near the Connecticut River.
A common type of grass that grew in the Dust Bowl region was buffalo grass (Doc. B). Buffalo grass only grew about four inches tall, but the grass was able to hold all the dirt beneath it. When farmers need that land they would remove the grass, increasing their chances of being caught in a “black blizzard”. Grass removal in the Great Plains was also due to overproduction of wheat during World War
Chavez, Chavez speaks about the first migration of Chicano ancestors and the affects the migration had on how Chicanos see themselves. Western Hemisphere is the arrival area for the ancestors of Chicanos and other indigenous Americans. They arrived in the west in small groups they started this journey forty to seventy thousand years ago since human have existed in the old world for millions of year already the discovery of America was actually the finding of the new world. The descendants of the first arrivals spread south from the starting point all the way to South America where they arrived about 11,000 B.C. during this migration countless of groups broke off and went their own way and establish themselves in local area.
When the colonists first arrived in America that brought livestock such as pigs, cows, sheep, and horses, which were not native to America, which caused problems for the Native Americans. The colonist’s success in the colonies depend on their livestock thriving, because the livestock provided them with meat as well as dairy. The main conflict between the Native Americans and colonists involving the livestock stemmed from their overall cultural differences. The Native Americans respected animals and nature while the colonists on regarded animals as food. This began to create a problem for Phillip, because he became torn between his Native American ideals and customs and adapting to the colonists’ ideals and customs.
Most think of Colonial America as the United State’s first stake in land. Some think of it in relation to Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving special episode. While some truth holds to both of the previous statements, many do not understand or care to know the differences between each colony. From farming to foreign contact, each colony had different ways of living and standards within their society. In 1620, the Plymouth Colony was founded after a nine-week voyage across a great ocean with tremendous storms and hardships.
Current historians do not have a specific answer to their disappearance but some say they were killed by the inhabitants of Hispaniola because of mistreatment. Although the second try for colonization was more of a success than the previous one. On the contrary, their attempt not only unlocked trade and expansion, but also death to the natives by the hands of the Europeans and ravish diseases. Diseases such as influenza, smallpox, measles and typhus that drastically reduced the indigenous population in the Caribbean within 50 years. And by the end of the sixteenth century, the population in the Americas that was once between 60-110 million was cut to a mere 6
Demographically, the Columbian Exchange allowed for a major population increase in Europe, but killed many natives of The Americas. As a result of crops such as potatoes and corn being introduced to Europe due to the Columbian Exchange, European population increased because the food supply increased. In contrast, Native American population decreased drastically due to the unintentional introduction and spread of diseases such as smallpox. Environmentally, the Columbian Exchange allowed European farmers to grow new crops, but led to major deforestation in The Americas. As a result of new crops such as corn and potatoes being introduced to Europe, farmers are able to grow more food of greater diversity.
Eventually, the colonists did get food when they traded with the Indians. But Francis West took all of it, and went back to England. He thought that the colonist would have enough food to survive when they go back to England (Hume). Ivor Hume said that Francis West was “leaving the colonists to the Indians and to God”. The colonists being starved was a main source of
Losing family, friends, homelands everything because Jackson believed that growing the United States in geographical region outweighed the loss of Native lives. Andrew Jackson had a dislike for Henry Clay so he started a veto process to stop the bank that Clay was involved with. Jackson also believed this bank to be unconstitutional. After Jackson destroyed the bank he made sure the money was returned back to the states where he thought it belonged and would help the economy grow. At that time in our history Andrew Jackson did what was acceptable, today it is not.
His empire was nothing compared to these massive long lasting empires. Alexander the Great did not deserve his tittle as great because he gained power by fear, killed innocent people, and his empire did not stay together long. Alexander the Great started conquering land at the age of 20, and in the process killed thousands of innocent people, used a fear tactic to gain his power, and built a massive empire that did not last very long. Some may see him as great, but if you look a little closer at the details Alexander did more harm then good trying to unite everybody. In conclusion, these three factors are proof that Alexander was not as excellent as historians try to prove him to
