By signing the declaration, it would have helped the colonists both politically and economically. Nonetheless, it would also have a positive effect socially with colonists life. To begin, a reason why I would sign the
The organization, therefore, played a significant role in the civil rights movements as indicated by the opposition to the introduction of racial segregation into the policies hiring and offices of the federal government. By the begging of 1960, the group has approximately 6000 members and over 50 branches across the nation(NAACP,2013). The high numbers enabled the organization to be influential in winning the rights of back people to serve as officers during the World Wars. In the subsequent years, the group played an increasingly important role in organizing nationwide protests that included marches in many cities against the silent movie by DW Griffin Birth of a
As a result of the Berlin Conference (1884-1885), to which Africans were not invited, the imperialist competition in sub-Saharan Africa began . Consequently, violence became an element implemented by all European nations to retain control and subdue the population. However, in Leopold II’s Congo Free State the levels of violence and brutality were excessively high. As a protest against the cruelty and abuses conducted by the Belgian troops, Edward Morel, a British journalist and socialist, wrote “The Black Man’s Burden” in 1903. In this document, the author condemned the conditions of African people in Belgian Congo, reconnecting them to the presence of European
"Si, se puede!" was Cesar Chavez's famous motto. Cesar Chavez was a farmer rights activist to improve farm workers rights. Mahatma Gandhi was also a rights activist when the British invaded India, in which he created a new philosophy to fight against the British without using anger. Both had so many things in common, but also contrasted in many ways.
One important cause that i will mention is the idea of Manifest destiny. This idea was thought out by Americans and is basically about how America’s government felt that they had the god given right to take land from other empires and expand to those areas. This idea and the amount of opportunity had a great impact on the US expansion and how it came to be. These documents are similar because they both prove my claim on reasoning for the US expansion. They are also similar to each other because they both explain in some way how America’s actions affected the country and other parts of the world.
William Lloyd Garrison was an important abolitionist and an American freedom fighter. Garrison made his impact on abolishment mainly through his newspaper, the Liberator. His newspaper was largely supported by African Americans who were free. After founding the Liberator, Garrison along with sixty plus people of both races and genders went to Philadelphia and founded the American Anti-Slavery Society. This society condemned slavery as a sin and stated that it has to be abolished instantly, endorsed non violence and denounce racial prejudice.(8)
The Enlightenment thinkers also influenced us with their intelligence and discoveries. It is also believed that the failures of the Articles of Confederation influenced the United States Constitution because the founding fathers did not want for their government to fail, like it did with the articles. Without the influences of the United States Constitution, the United States government today would not be the same. For example without the United States Constitution, marriage rights could be denied to same sex couple, we would have our democratic right to vote for a president every 4 years, and etc. None of these things would have existed if it were not for the influences of the United States Constitution.
It is believed that Chavez 's hunger strikes contributed to his death on April 23, 1993, in San Luis, Arizona. Cesar Chavez influenced revolutionary movements that invoked America to endorse equality by the acts of his movements while improving rights and better working conditions for migrant farmers which set his legacy for future generations. Chavez wanted proper rights, living conditions and the end of racial discrimination for the migrant workers that where being taken advantage of. “Agricultural laborers
The American Temperance Society was formed at Boston in 1826 and within a few years, about a thousand local groups existed. Temperance crusaders made effective use of pictures, pamphlets, and lecturers. The temperance movement reformed America in line with the other movements of the time. In fact, many of the same people were fighting for multiple causes. According to northern historians writing in the late nineteenth century, “Abolitionists were courageous men and women so devoted to uprooting the evil of slavery that they were willing to dedicate their lives to a cause that often ostracized them from their communities.”

Ogden with a brigade of 131, pushed south from flathead house toward Utah in December 1824.
Although it was preceded by the Pumunkeys experience with aggressive Spanish conquistadors and traders, the actions of the English were a decisive factor in the escalation of the conflict. Had the English colonists not attempted to assert dominance and expected war, the Pumunkeys may not have retaliated with such brutal force. Had the Pumunkeys not sought to expand their influence over other indigenous peoples, they might have recognized the threat the English posed over them and not aided them to the extent that they did. Ultimately, though, the burden of the conflict falls on the more aggressive which was certainly the leaders of the English colonist such as Captain Smith and those who succeeded him. If the English had not assumed that they would be able to easily dominate all of the natives, and instead tried to maintain meaningful and lasting good ties with the Pumunkeys and their allies, both societies could have avoided a devastating war and forged an alliance that would have strengthened them
Personally, I believe that if it was not for the limitations that the Treasury Department had put on philanthropy in 1919, many people would have contributed to something much more evil than they had believed, and history would have been full of how Americans essentially carried out ideologies similar to Adolf

The Colonies were striving even more to helping the British because they thought the British would reward by letting them more out to newer lands and going further west, but unfortunately the opposite happened. In Document A we can see that the British gain an immense amount of land, but they placed the Proclamation Line of 1763. This permitted the Colonist from moving further west and staying one place. This brought lots of angry towards the British Empire thus causing their loyalty and relationship with them to vanish. The Colonies began to grow a desire for Freedom and slowly began to grow a more self sufficient nature, leading to the Revolutionary
