The Metis peoples were not pleased with the whites over taking their land and sources. They felt that carriers and traders for the Hudson’s bay company were disappearing due to the loss of buffalo and their furs for trading. This rebellion overall brought fear to the people, and affected Macdonald’s
What caused him to hate indians so much was the Creek Wars. He had so much hostility towards them he caused the Indian Removal Act. He pushed this act onto the Senate and House of Reps. so much that they finally accepted it, but when it came to the to the supreme court they turned it down. Even though he was rejected by them, he told that he had an army, they didn’t and went ahead with the act. The tribes that were involved in this were the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and the Seminole.
One thing that was exciting and very interesting for me was learning about the Boston Massacre in Social Studies. Most people think of it as a minor event (which I did too until I learned all about it) in which a few people were killed, but it is much more than that, as I found out when my class went into a lot of depth to investigate the mysterious Boston Massacre. Some people think that the colonists aggravated the British and that the British fired in self-defense. Others say it was the British murdering (or murthering as they said it back then) innocent colonists. Whatever happened, it is a very interesting subject and kind of makes you question our supposed to be innocent ancestors.
He was born into a family that had anti-slavery values and who were also extremely religious. The sentiment that society can only be cleansed of their wrongful thinking was through violence is something that Brown wholeheartedly agreed with. He saw the acts of slavery as violent, atrocious, and dehumanizing and the only way to remove it was through bloodshed. Similar to other terrorists that get caught, there was an apparent lack of remorse for these murders when he is being investigated in trail. In his mind he believed that what he was doing was justified because of his “higher
The aftermath of warfare is never positive. Throughout history warfare has negatively impacted society and those living in it. The end of World War I led to a period of unrest in Canada because of rising unemployment, the spreading of the Spanish Flu and increasing negative treatment towards women. Rising unemployment after World War I, led to much tension amongst Canadians. Evidence of this was when war factories shut down because war supplies were no longer needed now that the war had ended, this left many people unemployed (Canadian War Museum).
Chinese Immigrants Not Welcome Anymore: Personal Response Yini (Yuki) Lu Trinity Western University Chinese immigrants not welcome anymore As the world becoms more globalized, it will be ponder athletic issues of racial imbalance so as to abstain from those mistakes of the previous. For instance, in Canada the Chinese immigrantion were not welcome by the British Columbia. The discrimination revealed in the documentary film “Chinese immigrants not welcome anymore” causes me to reflect on the earlier Chinese immigrants was living in misfortune through the following aspects: the racist actions of government and the disesteem in the video. Chinese immigration was displeasured by the local and neighborhoods because they were new group of people in a different language and life style. Earlier Chinese immigrants was the labor of Canada, they would like to take the dangerous
The Spanish also participated in wars against the English and in Southern battles. The Iroquois and the French were also at war with each other over territory. The beaver, which was in high demand because of the fur trade, was rapidly disappearing from Iroquois land. They wanted to expand their territory which led to a bloody war between the Iroquois, the French, and other Native American tribes. This led many French people to fear Native Americans and flee to Canada “I would not trust them though, for they are barbarians and heathens” (Marie of the Incarnation, p. 2).
Quobna Ottabah Cugoano, also known as John Stuart, wrote that the slavers attacked them with pistols and threatened to kill those who attempted to run away or did not comply with their commands. All the written perspectives from slaves correlate really well with Alexander Falconbridge’s document. More importantly, Alexander Falconbridge’s document allows the reader to attain a new perspective from someone who is simply watching the cruelty unfold, rather than from someone who experienced it all. This distinct perspective is very significant as there were not many people at the time who were strongly against slavery. After Alexander Falconbridge published this document, he gained momentum and support by other abolitionists who also found what the slaves were going through to be
This had big effects on the war because the north thought that killing prisoners of war was wrong but the south thought it was law abiding. Both sides used this battle to justify the war. The north believed that the southern soldiers led by Nathan Bedford Forrest, massacred
Guitar had been so upset that I had disagreed with him in his fundamental views of race relations that he had attempted to kill me, and would it again. Guitar felt as though I was not a real black. He was disappointed that I, his friend, felt very strongly against his extremist views on retaliation. In killing Pilate, he invigorated in me not a sense of sadness, but of passion surrounding my real name, my real identity, my real family. I had discovered more than the value of the gold would have given me.
The act was unevenly administered and there were many who opposed it. It helped drive Borden’s Union government but drove most of his French Canadian supporters into opposition, as they felt alienated by this attempt to force their participation into imperial
This statement disproves the definition of massacre because it was not an indiscriminate slaughter of people. If the soldiers were begin attacked it was merely self defense. Mr. Woodall was not the only account that stated the soldiers were being attacked by the townspeople before any firing took place, Jane Whitehouse said that same. She said that one man threw wood at one of the soldiers. Further more looking at the Revere painting, Preston’s deposition and also testimonies from people that gave their account of the story we can conclude that calling it the “Boston Massacre” would be stretching the truth of an event that has been warped for years.
