In the 1600’s the native Indians actually referred to lacrosse as stick ball, it wasn’t until the first French settlers that lacrosse, became lacrosse. “One of the main reasons why lacrosse was played was because the Native Americans believed that lacrosse could be used to heal the mind of other tribal members.”(Walker Will). Another major difference that the current lacrosse has from the Stick ball the Native Americans played was the field, in the current lacrosse the field is 110 yards while back when the Indians played the fields could range from a couple hundred yards to a couple miles depending on the amount of players. Three major pieces of equipment that a very different now then they were back then are the goals, the sticks, and the lacrosse ball itself. The goals back when the Native Americans played were simple just a couple trees near each other of a couple of rocks that had an opening where you could throw the lacrosse ball through.
The French additionally needed the English out of "their" domain, so they collected a gathering to oppose the approaching English, made up of thirty-five French armed force men, and twelve native fighters. In this way, on the twenty-eighth of May in 1754, Washington and his men had an arrangement to sneak into the French camp and take the land for themselves and for the British, yet the one of the French men spotted them and afterward shots rang out loud all around. This was the principal fight that lighted the French and Indian War. Toward the finish of this fight in the forested areas, the British and Washington ended up as the winner to win the fight and effectively (and forcibly) take the land from the French. Thirteen French fighters were slaughtered and 21 were caught.
The same girl he did work for every day started a trial against him saying he raped her. Her claim should have been disproven in many ways, there was enough evidence to contradict it but the jury is so racist they look right past it. Tom was found guilty and sent to Enfield Prison Farm waiting for an appeal even though he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Finally, as Tom was in that prison he got sick and tired of waiting for an appeal so he made a run for it, and was shot 17 times to be stopped. This ends up killing him and once the news makes it to the town it just rolls off their shoulders.

Consequently, the moment the Incas heard the gun shot they ran in terror as they thought the sound was thunder. Since the Incas broke ranks it made it easy for the Spanish to kill Incas on their horses. The invention of using gun powder has a weapon had come from the Chinese and this knowledge had then been passed on to the Spanish. However the Incas were very isolated and as a result they did not gain knowledge from neighbouring civilizations like the Aztecs. This shows that due to their lack of specialization they did not explore and gain
Once he almost squeezed all the air out of him he was flung back onto the ground. When Scout heard a man breathing hard a coughing hard he went towards the person and asked who he was and there was no answer. That person that caused Bob Ewell to go flying back onto the ground was Boo Radley. No one ever sees boo he just lives in his parents house, everyone thinks of him as a monster that wants to kill or hurt everyone even though he is a heart warming normal person.

If you shoot them from a distance, you often only injure them – they just limp off to die in anguish. If you poison them, their
Jem describes his image of Boo, “..Six and a half feet tall,....he dined on raw squirrels and cats he could catch, that 's why his hands are bloodstained-if ate an animal raw you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran down the side of his face: What teeth he had were yellow and rotten: his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time.”(Lee 16) Boo is judged like a monster even though Jem and Scout have actually seen him before. Boo is a mockingbird because he is treated like a monster even though he remains unseen. As the story goes on we get to meet our first encounter with Boo. Boo is the mysterious savior who killed Bob Ewell to save Jem and Scout.

By the mid-eighteenth century, tensions between the Native American tribes and English settlers had mounted to an all time high. Mistrust was frequent, as was betrayal. Fighting could break out in a minute, and then be finished the next. Political relationships were broken because of a war and massacre; the economy boomed because of barbaric markets & fur trade. Yet, a lasting effect took place after a war and fruit picking that shattered relations with the tribes for years to come.
European style of fighting involved large numbers of companies forming a line in an open field and taking turns firing upon one another. Britain practiced this style of fighting, as it had worked for them in the past. The Patriots had adopted an old, yet new to them, style of fighting from the Natives called Guerrilla Warfare largely inspired by Francis “Swamp Fox” Marion. Americans imposed surprise attacks or had riflemen in woods that could pick off British officers from a distance, although this went against “gentleman’s warfare”. In the Battle of Trenton, General Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware River into Trenton and attacked German Hessians based there on Christmas morning.
