Throughout history, people have been inventing things to make their lives easier. That drive has produced huge changes in the American life several times over. In the 1700’s, life in America was very difficult. Transportation infrastructure was lacking, which pushed the delivery of goods to be almost exclusively down rivers. Military technology was roughly unchanged since America began, leaving the country open to attack from other nations.
Though a great charismatic leader, one operation puts a blemish on JFK’s report card. This operation was The Bay of Pigs Invasion in which JFK authorized a militia to enter Cuba and attempt a coup d 'état to overthrow Fidel Castro. The communist rule in Cuba knew well in advance of the CIA’s plan, making the attack a complete failure. Inside the museum sits a large portion of what was the Berlin Wall. Although the wall fell in 1989, its construction during Kennedy’s presidency in 1961 nearly started war.
Joint fire support assists other air, land and naval forces to move, maneuver, and control territory, airspace, and key waters. The lack of coordination of plans between the Husky air, naval and land forces resulted in the absence of direct operational fire support and avoidable incidents of fratricide by fires. There was minimal integration of air support to ground forces during the initial invasion on the west beach fronts. Small Axis aircraft fired on Allied landing vehicles without interdiction. Air support was not provided to the assault divisions, particularly the 7th Army, until three days into the invasion.
In 1500, the continent had the population of 50 million people. The same year, the US area had only 5 million (Robert C. Allen, 2011). The arrival of Iberian people, has changed the dynamics of the entire continent. South America was more suitable for agricultural production. To give an example, Mexico and Peru were a natural habitat for maize and beans, squash, potatoes, quinoa, tobacco etc., the goods that Europe has never heard of before.
Skunk Hollow or, “the mountain,” was a free black community from 1806 to 1905. It was a small community of free blacks that was located in the Palisades area. Two years after New Jersey ratified its Gradual Emancipation Act, newly freed slaves settled in a small community known as Skunk Hollow. There were over sixty households in the community known as Skunk Hollow. The Skunk Hollow settlers were more prosperous than other African-American families in the township because most of the Skunk Hollow residents owned property by 1854.
In McMaster’s words, the battle was, “was lost in Washington, D.C., even before Americans assumed sole responsibility for the fighting in 1965 and before they realized the country was at war; indeed, even before the first American units were deployed.” One of the reasons McMaster decided to study the Vietnam war is because he wanted to learn from the other commander’s mistakes. He did not wish to re-due a poorly strategized war such as Vietnam. He wanted to lead his troop’s confidently, using good and effective war plans that would result in America winning wars--instead of losing them drastically. McMaster expounds in his book about how the military men viewed their commanding officers, such as McNamara, as an enemy instead of an ally. I’m sure that from those mistakes that McNamara made, McMaster has learned to treat the fellow militaire with value and respect.
After defeating Spain in 1898 war by the United States and Cuba, Spain left Cuba and U.S. forces occupied Cuba until 1902. In 1902 the United States decided to give Cuba the independence under certain condition that the United States had the right to interfere in Cuba. In the late 1800s the United States had control over the Cuban sugar industry and was purchasing 87 percent of Cuba’s exports. Also many American celebrities and tourists were visiting Havana’s resorts and casinos in the 1950s. Through Fulgencio Batista era, Cuba and the United States cooperated and the relations were stable among the countries.
In source 3 it shows about 85 percent of African Americans work in Agriculture and Domestic jobs. There is about 1 to 5 percent who are working in professions which is not a whole lot of them. This is holding them back to expand economically. The Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 was passed and it authorized the formation of local Community Action Agencies as part of the War on Poverty. The agencies are directly regulated by the federal government.
My grandfather was an immigrant that migrated from Yemen in 1970 and was working in a farm in Fresno CA. He was a grape farmer working from 6 am to 7 pm almost more than 13-hours a day his salary was $2.56 an hour from that salary he had to support his family that was still living in Yemen. Many migrant farm workers who pick these fruits travel across the country and cross borders to fill the agriculture jobs in the U.S that U.S citizens are not willing to take. (McKenzie, 2015). Agriculture jobs is not an easy job, but these migrant farmworkers are willing to fill these physical exhausting jobs because of the economic hardship, and the lack of jobs in the there country, therefore, courtiers that have these immigrant farmworkers should recognize immigrants for their hard work.
the poor distribution income and unemployment was again showed in the work of Eric Rauchway. In his book “The great depression” he said, “11.5 million out of work represented only the workers who had no pay check. Many of them had families who depended on them for a living. So the 11.5 million who had jobs represented something like thirty million Americans who had lost their source of income,” (p.40). And the people that were affected more were the blacks and Mexican.
Between 1862 and 1900, close to 600,000 families made their way west from free homesteads. However, the Homestead Act required farmers and labors to have the cash to move, buy equipment, and have patients for their farms to become self-sufficient, which was not always the case. Therefore, in 1873 the Timber Culture Act was passed to adjust the Homestead Act. Each homesteader was inclined to claim another 160 acres if within four years if they planted trees on a quarter of it. Successfully distributing 10 million additional acres, Congress continued to pass laws to encourage more to go west.
At the battle of the Bay of Pigs disaster in 1961, a U.S.-backed group of Cuban exiles invaded Cuba. Planned during the Eisenhower administration, the invasion was given the go-ahead by President John Kennedy, although he refused to give U.S. air support. The landing at the Bay of Pigs on April 17, 1961, was a fiasco. The invaders did not receive popular Cuban support and were easily repulsed by the Cuban military. Later followed the Soviet-Missile Crisis where the Soviets attempted to install medium-range missiles in Cuba that were capable of striking targets in the United States with nuclear warheads.
