For example, Document 14.2, Description of Custer’s Battlefield (1876) by General Philip Sheridan, talks about Custer’s battle against the Cheyenne and Sioux indians in Battle of Little Bighorn. The battle started when the U.S. army chose to ignore all previous treaties and invade the native American lands in search of gold. In response to the betrayal, the Sioux and Cheyenne indians joined forces and outnumbered Custer’s army. Nevertheless, choosing to ignore all previous treaties with Indians caused distrust between Americans and Natives Americans. The action of trying to constantly take land from the natives was a factor that led to the hostile relationship between the Americans and Natives.
Take Back Our land: Tecumseh Speech to the Osages “We must be united” was the plea from Tecumseh to the Osage tribe. In 1811, Tecumseh, known as the “Greatest Indian”, gave a speech pleading with the Osage tribe that they should unite together to fight against the white man (Tecumseh, 231). He goes on to tell how they had given the white man everything they needed to recover health when they entered their land but in return the white man had become the enemy. The speech to the Osages by Tecumseh illustrates the dangers of the white men to the Indian tribes, and why the tribes should unite together against the white man.
He claims that Indians had had a negative experience with the Europeans even before the Pilgrims arrived. In fact, Indians attacked them with arrows that belonged to the other travelers from the Old World, notorious for ruining Indians’ homes and selling the locals into slavery. Another reason for the outrage of Indians were the diseases that they were not immune to. Smallpox, for example, killed a great part of the local population. Axtell then described how the natives joined and copied the whites’ way of life.
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 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.
The attack led to a series of retaliatory attacks by the Native Indians. Chivington was an ambitious politicians and a former preacher in the Methodist church, and had seized the opportunity of the attacks to spearhead his political plans. Following his disappointment that the conflicts had not yet resulted to any significant battles by 1864, Chivington resulted to unwarranted attacks through burning the Native Indians villages. Moreover, his missions were well supported by the white settlers as they had interests in the region. On the other hand, under the leadership of Black Kettle, the Cheyene Indians had resoted to peaceful alliances with the US government and at a particular time he travelled to Denver with the aim of affirming his peaceful accords.
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.
Jacksonian Democracy - Was a political movement during the Second Party System toward greater democracy. Jackson always fought for the rights for the common man. It had a negative effect on America. He went against the Supreme Court ruling. He also had the Indians removed from their lands, and gave the land to the whites.
As seen in chapters one to three, Okonkwo is a very powerful/angered man, driven by hatred and fear, but it appears that he will defend his village throughout this story as European colonization takes over. The Ibo tribe itself is very strong and powerful, to the point where other tribes are very scared of them. So, when European colonization begins, it can be predicted that the Ibo tribe and Okonkwo won’t put up with the foreigners taking over, but based on history, the Europeans will use enough force to take over. Throughout “Things Fall Apart,” Achebe will prompt how the Ibo culture is different in ways of the society lived in
Another reason why Charlestown was difficult to settle was because he of Native Americans and other tribes launching attacks against the European natives so it was difficult for the European settlers to settle the land because there were Native Americans running on there land and attacking them on their land and of killing most of them like the small pox diseases and other things wernt killing enough of their people. And there were other attacks from the animals there attacks from lions , tigers and other animals that could be very scary to people and it wasn't very safe for the settlers to come out and night and try to look and gather food for their tribes and find supplies for things they needed. As well as the Native Americans and other tribes would be argueing and wanting the same land as the European settlers had and that caused conflict between the European settlers and the Native Americans so fights broke out and it caused a lot of disasters between the settlers and the
The document “Colonists Encroach on the Stanwix Line”, records a speech made by a Native American, John Killbuck to the governors of three separate English Colonies. He tells of the English and other European Settlers invading Naive American lands base on their own greed and compete against one another. The English haven’t always agreed on bringing about peaceful compromises on the lands they and other European Nations have conquered, instead, wars erupted and whoever were the victors reaped all the rewards, land that consisted of Native American tribes. The Native had tried to make a peaceful compromise of a land dispute by setting a boundary between Native American tribes and the English Colonies. However, with the increase of Europeans flooding
The Sioux from the Cheyenne and Arapaho were captivated by Sitting Bull’s aversion towards reservation life and treaties. Sitting Bull was indeed a contribution within the Native Americans. Without him, George A. Custer wouldn’t have conquered, and the tribes would most likely be adrift with all of the occurring conflicts. He was dauntless to endure the United States government policies, and to participate in the tribal wars.
The purpose of Smith 's work was to persuade others to continue to colonize America. He wanted them to know if you went out and worked you would be rewarded with survival. Smith did achieve his purpose. His exploits promoted that, they were an example of how he went out "abroad" and faced many potential enemies and not only survived but saved the other colonists. The other aspects of the American Hero Smith established in this work were: overcoming impossible odds (seen when he faced 200 natives by himself and killed two of them before he was taken prisoner) and getting a woman, Pocahontas, to care so much for him that she helped save his life and the other colonists (seen when he speaks of her laying her head down over his when her father
They were their main enemy’s. He had gained the respect with all the other tribes. But he gained a reputation for raiding the crow and Pawnee tribe a lot. Another war he had fought in was against the U.S. That war was due to the U.S. soldiers looking for gold in the land that the Oglala tribe was living on.
