About 150 colonists were killed by Indians, but were the Indians really to blame (Fausz 63)? The colonists, in the eyes of the Indians, were stealing their land, killing their people, and taking their food. Although some Indians tried to make peace with the colonists, the colonists still felt threatened and started chopping their heads off. In the eyes of the colonists, the Indians were uncivilized savages. All they wanted was to be rich and have a better life.
They were also required to learn Christianity (document 8). The native peoples’ land and space was invaded and they were required to do whatever the conquerors said, or else they would be punished. This era in history is a devastating time for an immense amount of people. The Age of Exploration was a strenuous period of time for the native people, and therefore should not be celebrated.
One of the dreadful things that happened in U.S. history was because of Andrew Jackson. It is none other than the Trail of Tears. The Supreme Court didn’t want it to happen but Jackson defied them and did it anyway. He forced 20,000 Native Americans out of their homelands at gunpoint even though they were living in for years. Everyone was forced out, the sick, the old and the young.
(Pg. 98). Alexander planed on conquering the world, but there were some countries like India and Bactria that was not willing to let him take over their country. Alexander did not give up on conquering Bactria, he gained the trust of the natives
When the Europeans arrived, they wiped out most of the Native American population and destroyed their carefully sculpted land by building. Europeans, however, were not able to adapt to their new life in the Americas since they just didn’t know how to manipulate their environment like the Native Americans. Life was actually so brutal for the Europeans that many of them ran away to live with the Indians, suggesting that the Indians had a higher quality of life than the first Europeans did. “Horrifying the leaders of Jamestown and Plymouth, scores of English ran off to live with the Indians” (Mann, p9). The “high counter/low counter” argument further suggests that the Native Americans had a high standard of living, probably higher than the European standard of living at that time.
He made the removal act against Indians in 1832. The Cherokee felt betrayed because they fought alongside Jackson. He forced them and almost all other Indians to move west. He put them in concentration camps. A lot of people think he is the equivalent to

The first is the leak of DeLome Letter from Spanish minister in Washington, Dupuy du Lome  to the press. This letter criticized President McKinley for being “weak” and labelled him as a “would-be politician” and a “jingoist” . This letter was considered an insult to the president and the nation and further outraged the Americans toward Spain. The second immediate cause is the explosion of U.S.S Maine in Havana harbor which killed 2 officers and 258 crewmen. Even though the culprit behind this was unknown, the Yellow Journalism had successfully shaped public opinions to blame Spain for this incident and to demand the war with Spain.
Latin America, in the past was never given a fair chance to prosper due to war, disputes, and unjust rulers. On the first page, third paragraph of Gabriel Garcia-Marquez’s The Solitude of Latin America, he wrote, “general Maximilio Hernandez Martinez, the theosophical despot of El Salvador who had thirty thousand peasants slaughtered in a savage massacre…” Through these words, Garcia-Marquez shows that the generals in Latin America often treated others with disrespect. Since these generals have acted unfairly towards their people, they have not given their society an opportunity to fight back and achieve something better than what they have been given. In the fourth paragraph, the text says “entrenched in his burning palace, died fighting an

Columbus -- Hero or Villain Many people see Columbus as a hero and even though he changed people's way of life economically, religiously, and politically he also destroyed the natives way of life in the process. Columbus set sail out of Spain in 1492 looking for a faster route to the products and goods from the east but instead he spotted land at watling island in the Bahamas.
Columbus Revisited- Hero or Zero? Columbus Day is observed all over America on October 12th every year, celebrating Christopher Columbus and his discoveries, most notably that of America. But is Columbus actually a hero? To many, he caused lots of problems, and the cost was higher than the gain. Columbus is a zero, not a hero.
Although Christopher Columbus marked a turning point in history, he was not the hero he’s said to be. For one, he enslaved countless amounts of natives after his arrival in the “New World”. He believed they’d make good servants and put them to work finding gold for him. He also mutilated these enslaved people if they did not find enough gold for him. They were usually punished by the loss of a limb and, on occasion, by death.
People have very different opinions on Christopher Columbus. My opinion is he was a very greedy man, the only thing he cared about was money. He would do anything possible to get it, even if he was already rich he would want more and more. Some things he did was took 10% of any riches in a land he might discover. Also, he didn't care whose flag he was sailing under, he only cared about getting the money.
When I was in elementary and middle school, I was always taught that Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492. What I was not taught was the toll it took on the Natives in the Americas. Also, we were not taught about Christopher Columbus’ role before his voyage, such as his slave holdings. I found that article interesting because it gave me information that I was not taught so for in my education. I learned the reason for Columbus’ fame: the Founding Fathers needed a hero.
