Religion has always had an impact on society. The Jonestown Massacre was a tragic example of religious control. Jim Jones demonstrates the control he had over many people through religious manipulation and physical torment, in an effort to gain dedicated followers, resulting in controversy. “Jim” Warren Jones was raised in southern Indiana (Judge 7). His father was a diligent member of the KKK (Judge 7).

The struggles on the battlefield such as extreme weather, loss of supply of wood and building the railroads caused major hardships for the 209th infantry. My group for the 209tH Amendment had Chapter 3, which was “A Winter in the Army of the Potomac.” History on the 209th regiment is they were made up of volunteers that were willing to fight for them in war. On November 24th which is where it takes place in Chapter 3 is the regiment was transferred with other Pennsylvania regiments from the Army of the James to the army of the Potomac.
I did a lot of studying about the Massacre that happened at Mountain Meadows. I read an amazing book I would recommend to anyone wanting to know more and it is probably the most unbiased account of the events that occurred. This book is the Massacre at Mountain Meadows by Ronald W. Walker, Richard E. Turley Jr., and Glen M. Leonard and was mentioned in the internet articles I read as a great book for those who want to know more. I also read Blood of the Prophets, Brigham Young and the Massacre at Mountain Meadows by Will Bagley, but I didn’t find this to be as unbiased at describing what happened at Mountain Meadows.
However, the reason the British Government had rule over the colonies in the first place was because of the British immigrants that moved from Britain over America. Whilst other European countries also did this, the 12 colonies were ruled and ‘owned’ by the British, for example, the French had control of Canada, or at least a substantial part of Canada, like territories such as Newfoundland. However, the British, in order to maintain control, used force which went too far in the example of the Boston Massacre. The Boston Massacre occurred when a group of Colonists taunted the British soldiers guarding a customs house and threw snowballs at the guards and when one hit Hugh Montgomery he pulled his rifle out on the crowd, which began the firing
There were many disagreements and because of those, many events were the cause of the American Revolution. These events included bloodshed by others, peoples rights weren’t enforced, individuals didn’t receive freedom, and our country was just not yet whole. Despite of the causes of why the road to Revolution took place there were effects afterwards. When American Revolution was over with the The Declaration of Independence came into place, treaties were signed, and the Bill of Rights. Now these effects/events were amazing, it helped our country tremendously.
I believe the jury did the right decision in the case of the boston Massacre, I think Captain Preston was innocent and did not order his men to fire, but individuals soldiers may be guilty of murder. The Boston Massacre started in March 5th 1770 in boston and 5 men and boys died. It started in front of a Government office with a crowd of american colonists who were propagandising the british soldiers they were in a riot fighting against the soldiers who were acting in malice. The incident started when the crowd was provoking the soldiers, they threw snowballs and clubs at the soldiers. One of the soldiers named Montgomery was hit on the head with ice and fell to the ground after he got up and fired into the crowd.
In American history, there have been few disastrous attacks against the country that have caused masses of casualties and chaos throughout the United States. On Sunday, December seventh, 1941, around eight o’clock in the morning, a bombing occurred from Japan at the American naval base, called Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii. Despite various arguments against this attack occurring at all prior to it, the Japanese pulled through and surprised America and its soldiers with an intent to destroy the Pacific Fleet. There were two thousand fatalities and one thousand people injured, including sixty-eight civilians. The attack on Pearl Harbor occurred due to many decades of tension between Japan and the United States.
When analyzing the periodic shifts in the governments and regimes of the 18th and 19th centuries, one must wonder to what extent the cultural aspects of each countries respective society affects the manner in which the state is governed and led. It cannot be denied that the promotion of culture in different states results in the promotion of nationalistic ideas and tendencies, to the point where each citizen feels dedicated to their country and worthy of being called a “German,” for example, rather than just some other inhabitant of land in a country. Some cultural aspects of societies all across the world (and particularly throughout Europe) include religion, identity, race and ethnicity, language, and art. In order to analyze the shifts in governmental policy and beliefs, it is equally as important to analyze the shift in culture that came from the citizens of each state, and to what extent they affected how the government was led, either by revolting against them or working cohesively with them.
On March 5th 1770, British Soldiers shot and killed five colonists and injured 10 of them. The tragic event was nicknamed “The Bloody Massacre”, but the colonists were at fault because they were the ones that provoked the soldiers, they attacked the soldiers, and they created a chaotic scene. First reason why the colonists were at fault is because they are the ones that provoked the soldiers. (Paragraph 2 of page 155 from the book United States History Colonization through Reconstruction written by Michael B. Stoff and James West Davidson) “A crowd gathered…colonists shouted insults.”
