As late as the nineteenth century, Native American relations with the Anglo-Americans remained full of unease and hostility. The desire to expand the U.S. coast-to-coast known as Manifest Destiny inspired many to travel west to seek new opportunities and land. However, although the U.S. grew and successfully established a transcontinental railroad, Native Americans regressed under the developing America. As a result, Native Americans attempted to backlash with events like the Battle of Little Bighorn where efforts to preserve Native American culture were short-lasting. From social factors such as the assimilation of natives to economic factors such as taking land forcefully, tensions between Native Americans and Anglo-Americans persisted.
They intruded upon the lands of the Indians and and wrecked their tribes. I think that Andrew Jackson allowed his prejudice and power to influence the lives of thousands, and multiple generations have felt the affect of his actions. I must ask the question, are all men created equal? In my opinion, they are. However, I know not everyone shares my opinion.
When the Europeans began colonizing the New World, they had a problematic relationship with the Native Americans. The Europeans sought to control a land that the Natives inhabited all their lives. They came and decided to take whatever they wanted regardless of how it affected the Native Americans. They legislated several laws, such as the Indian Removal Act, to establish their authority. The Indian Removal Act had a negative impact on the Native Americans because they were driven away from their ancestral homes, forced to adopt a different lifestyle, and their journey westwards caused the deaths of many Native Americans.
The Civil War had a huge effect on the nation, including its people. To gain freedom and equality for the nation, the soldiers went to fight, and that battle is known as the Civil War. The Civil War changed the history of the nation’s beliefs about equality and freedom for all, and this war was the solution for that. Not to mention, slavery was also one of the main points as to why we had the Civil War. The Civil War changed the nations beliefs about equality and freedom for everyone.
Congress fought hard to limit the amount of non-Anglo-Saxons entering the country during this time, and racism, particularly that that was anti-black, was a prominent problem during the twenties. All these factors lead back to Zinn’s underlying point being that, during this time leading into the Great Depression, true unity was greatly difficult to attain and white supremacy was a violent force that was quickly spreading across the
The Trail of Tears left by the Cherokee Indians “Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race.” -― Martin Luther King Jr The Trail of Tears helped the Manifest Destiny and Westward Expansion lead to the Civil War in many ways. The Trail of Tears caused more tension to rise in the United States. Native Americans became angry and lost trust in the American governmentbecause the settlers forced and physically moved them out of their homes. The Trail of Tears helps the Manifest Destiny because it is mainly the idea that moving west will bring more comfort and new riches to the settlers. This is major expansion westward.
European trade had a damaging effect on Indians’ war and diplomacy. The integration of new European goods created many changes in the way Indians fought, including the use of newly introduced weaponry: firearms. These new goods created a dependence on the Europeans for more supplies and ultimately lead to Beaver wars. The presence of disease that was brought over from Europe into Indian country also changed the way Indians fought in their Mourning wars. European settlement and trade caused a devastating change in the way the Indians’ took part in wars, affecting their mourning war practices through disease, new goods creating deadlier wars amongst Indians, along with a dependence on the Europeans to replenish their goods, which lead to Beaver wars.
As many people know, the world we live in is huge. Many have tried and succeeded to colonize some parts of the world. Two of the biggest colorizations that happen in past are between the English and Spanish. At the same time, both would be fighting and taking over the Native Americans and disrespected them. From both colonization, many settlers have died from starving, the harsh weather, and from fighting each other.
We befriended the Cherokee and a couple other dangerous tribes though in defence of their tactics. In the American war many of the Natives sided with the British to try and defeat the colonists and regain their lands. In this time western Pennsylvania and New York became savage battlegrounds. After the defeat of the British the newly set boundaries for America ensured that their would be more and more
In 1814 the Manifest Destiny occurred, manifest destiny is when lots of United States citizens moved out west so they could be start their lives and gain lots of property. The main reason Americans wanted to move out west was so they can gave the mass quantities of land and be able to farm and make a great living off of it. But the Manifest Destiny affected lots of things three of them being the Native Americans, slavery, and the relationship between the North and South States. The Manifest Destiny affect the Native Americans greatly in multiple ways, their population their food and their culture. One example of this the document 1, in this document it's just the population of Native Americans before Americans moved West and after they moved West.” There was a graph showing the starting population of Native Americans before Americans moved over being About 45,000 and after being 10,000”(Document 1).
It lead to the Anti-War Movement, which still affects America on foreign relations today. On top of all of that, there was a serious economic divide in the country that caused certain classes to rise and fall. This decade was very trying for the United States, and has affected our society even to this day. The 1960’s was full of civil rights leaders that helped shape America into the country it is today. There will always be racial tensions in society, but without Martin Luther King Jr. and his fellow activists, the inequalities that blacks faced in America wouldn’t have been addressed until much later on in life.
Tensions were running high and they ultimately resulted in a rebellion. The war also finically crippled France for years. This document suggested heavily that trade and owning land with bountiful resources was essential not only that but something that the Europeans not only desired but understood greatly.
The War of 1812 was a significant conflict with broad consequences, particularly for the native inhabitants of North America. During the years before the war, the United States began their expansion, creating the destruction of many Native American villages and homes. Due to these actions, during the war, many but not all tribal nations sided with the British because they thought it would stop American expansion. In all, more than two dozen nations participated in the war. In addition to the Lower Great Lakes Indians, led by Tecumseh, and Southern Indians, the Mohawks fought under Chief John Norton to hold onto their lands in southern Quebec and eastern Ontario (Fixico).
The Great Migration The Transformation of English Colonists As history teaches us, the great land we call the United States of America was built on the conquest of Native Americans and their territories and the enslavement of Africans. Although the birth of America was extremely tumultuous, the contact between the three cultures proved to change cultures and values forever. No matter the opinion of how it began, it is no arguing that the interaction between these three cultures built the legacy that is now known as the United States of America. England had become so overpopulated that it was becoming difficult to live comfortably; therefore, explorers began looking to discover more land and as a result found a New World. Relocating to
The war was known as The Seven Years ' War to the British but to the Americans it was called The French and Indian War, it was the bloodiest American war in the 18th century taking more lives than the American Revolution. Spreading across and involving three continents which included much of Europe, the Caribbean and India. The war was sparked by a clash between the English and French over colonial territory and wealth. “The land- variously claimed by Virginians, Pennsylvanians and the French-was actually inhabited by more than a dozen Indian tribes.” (pg 130) Each side wanted to increase their land holdings which resulted in building tensions between the British and French in America. The war ended in 1763 and it effectively ended French
