Moving west could really be difficult and I could get injured in worst case die. “When he returned to camp bringing the startling news, that for some unknown cause, the horses had stampeded.” (object G) That could be anyone being in a stampede and I wouldn’t want to be in the middle of a horse stampede! The horses could really be dangerous to the people moving west.
One challenge people would face during the California Gold Rush was the travel to get there. On land, traveling to California is about 2,000 miles and 123 days if you’re coming from missouri(The California Gold Rush, paragraph 1). In some years only half the people who were traveling to the gold rush would actually live all the way there. Traveling isn’t as easy as it looks and you have to bring all your supplies with you and it would be impossible to make it up a hill with too much weight from supplies.
Many people came from all around the world hoping to get rich by finding gold. Conditions were rough and dangerous. The government put expensive taxes on the gold miners (30 shillings a month or £8 a year), and even if they did not find gold they still had to pay for a licence. The miners thought this was unfair and worked
“ The U.S. is among the last of the industrialized nations to abolish the peskiest little bits of coinage” (Source C). More and more counties will soon join in on the laughter as they dismantle their low value coins. It would be a different story if we used the pennies. Only about one-third of the pennies are in circulation, the other two-thirds of them are hiding in our chair cushions (Source C). Not only is the government losing money from the missing two-thirds, but it is also wasting money on workers.
You don’t know whether or not all this money that you’re sending will actually get to the spot which you meant for it to reach. Humans are naturally greedy and invested in their own self-interest, and when the flow of money starts increasing, the likelihood of someone along the chain slipping some amount of cash into their own pockets is very high. Another one of the cons is that the likelihood of people agreeing to this willingly is very low, and it would be hard to rally support, as people like to keep at least some of their possessions. A full removal of all luxuries from the lives of everyone with luxuries would take time and honesty, the latter of which may be far too uncommon. What’s more, most of the United States economy flows on entertainment, such as movies and sports.
However, let there be no mistake that these weapons are a life threat to civilians. The amount of semi-automatic guns in the U.S. puts a shockingly large price on the cost the government would pay to buy all the semi-automatic rifles back. A fairly large amount of guns exist in the United States and of that amount, about a third are assault weapons. “A November 2012 Congressional Research Service report found that, as of 2009, there were approximately 310 million firearms in the United States: ‘114 million handguns, 110 million rifles, and 86 million shotguns.’”
As I stated above the Great Wall did not ensure the safety of every person. Therefore, many lives were lost when the Han was at war with the Xiongnu, but if it weren’t for the wall the death rate during this time period would be much higher. The poem in document F states “We sally forth at dawn, but do not return at dusk." "People should be selected to settle along the border areas" (Document B.) These two quotes are saying that the Great Wall cost too many innocent lives by using people as human shields.
First of all, the great range of diseases made it almost impossible to stay healthy. “The diseases ranged from the measles, smallpox, mountain fever, and cholera, the biggest problem, leaving people dead in 2 hours” (Trinklein). This quote shows how there were many diseases, multiplying the travelers’ chances of death. Another piece of evidence that shows how life on the Oregon Trail was hard is the medical knowledge at the time. “Most people who died during the trip west became ill from disease which there was no cure at the time” (Underwood).
Many of them starved and died of diseases because they were not use to being to such harsh conditions. The American settlers slaughtered the Buffalos that Native Americans used to eat and make shelter, instead using them for making money from using them for robes and leather. The Native Americans suffered greatly from the Americans Westward
It is true that Native American’s hunting of the buffalo on horses had significantly decreased their population, but it was the American’s capitalistic ideas that led to their near extinction. An excerpt from a book by Foner states, “Hunting by mounted Indians had already reduced the buffalo population - estimated at 30 million in 1800 - but it was army campaigns and the depredations of hunters seeking buffalo hides that rendered the vast herds all but extinct.” Because of this, many tribes began to grow hungry as their primary source of food had almost all but disappeared from the lands surrounding them. The extermination of the buffalo was not only an attack on the buffalo themselves, but

I believe those who want to cross the border should get a background check. Families have to save money in order to bring them back. The U.S. legalizes irrelevant things such as gay marriages and medical marijuana. They need to legalize immigrants who come to seek hope. Things like immigration should be legalized.

Gold mining had reached its peak by 1852. More than $80 million in gold had been pulled from mines (Encyclopedia.com, 2015). Even though the gold rush was not profitable for all who came to California, the gold rush reshaped the demographics of California because people from Asia and other parts of the world traveled to California and the population rose. In 1848, James Marshall discovered gold while constructing a mill for John Sutter (Encyclopedia.com, 2015).
