By the first half of September more than half of the James Fort city (later Jamestown) colonists died, taking the Powhatan’s to pity. This action made Captain John Smith, the colony’s leader, gain more power over time. The Indians thought that if brought into their Confederation the colonists would be a fine source of military equipment and metals. After a short period of time the Fort James food store caught on fire which made the colonists think it was the Powhatan’s, so Captain John Smith forced the Indians to trade with them. Their chief refused which made Smith
According to Document D, there was mistrust between the British colonists and the Native Americans. There was mistrust between the two because the colonist forced the Native Americans to trade goods, which was unfair to the Natives because it was not their fault they were unprepared. Native Americans and the English settlers couldn’t get along, and because this happened, this led to war, which led to death. Also those who were wounded or injured did not have enough doctors or surgeons to help( Doc.C). Also, according to document E, 144 colonists died by the attack of the Native Americans in the years of 1607 to 1610.
There seems to be many causes of the violence in the southwest mostly and primarily due to brutal and senseless encounters at Apache Pass. These encounters came about due to personal vendettas from the U.S government and an Apache leader named Cochise. For a while the two had peace between them before farm was raided and a child happened to be taken causing the American government to be suspicious and met with Cochise who was known for having peaceful talks with Americans prior to this encounter. After this meeting the army decided to hold Cochise’s family hostage even though he had promised to help the government find out where the boy went. After this Cochise had to escape without his family and apparently a few members of the Apache tribe were killed and caused Cochise to become more of a revenge killer than a war hero!
Shaken, the colony resolved to declare war on the Pequot tribe. The events that followed were to irreparably change the way the colonies and Native Americans interacted for the next 300 years. Many, including professor at the University of Connecticut and director of research at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center, Kevin A. McBride, have considered The Battle of Mistick Fort and subsequent events to be “one of the first cases of cultural genocide” in the colonies. It was certainly the most violent. Out of a population of 8,000, only a few hundred survived by the end of the war (Urbanus
I believe the Han Empire collapsed because of the Silk Road, a trading route from China to the Mediterranean. It bought some pro’s and con’s, like the spread of different cultures and the spread of the Bubonic Plague not only across China but parts of Europe as well. The Black Death originated in Europe and was spread across the eastern part of the world. It killed many people in the Han Empire meaning it killed thousands upon thousands. "Since most Empires were not advanced in their sanitation systems it spread quickly".
When the French were defeated in 1763, it became a critical turning point in history for the Shawnees, already dissatisfied with British authority they subsequently were involved in a conflict known as Pontiac’s Rebellion, and migrated from Detroit to Ohio, again living in densely populated areas along the Ohio River with little food, forest protection, and spirits altered by the imperialism displayed by the British and the carelessness of the Colonists created a sense of wickedness among whites, and in-turn the tribe more reluctant to understand British/Colonist culture and the process of assimilation. Although participation in the Seven Years’ War created greater bonds among the Colonies and Indians alike, the war also strengthened colonists
Jamestown is where it all began… King James Ⅰ sent 144 men to America to settle there, and it caused a lot of bickering and fighting along the way. The English men believed that the natives that already lived there would welcome them, so they let their guard down and were attacked. The reason that the natives didn’t want them there was because their chief Powhatan received a prophecy that another group would later become better than his, and he tried to defeat any other group that opposed his. Since the natives wouldn’t help them, the men started going very hungry, along with the intense heat, and within 8 months, more than half the men died. The hunger got so bad, that John Smith started trading with the enemy, the natives.
This specific situation dealt with “wicked bishop” of Laon and the attempt to take him out of office for his exploitation of the people. In 1106 the seat of the Bishop of Laon, which was vacant for two years, was bought by Gaudri, a Norman who was not looked upon with high regard. An arrogant and somewhat ruthless leader, Gaudri was not liked by the burghers or a good amount common people alike, so when he left for England a “The clergy and knights came to an agreement with the common folk in hopes of enriching themselves in a speedy and easy fashion (Guibert).” The burghers set up a commune and sent money to the king in order to ensure its protection. Upon his arrival back to Laon the bishop was paid off to not object to the commune by the burghers and lived in peace for three years. In 1112 however, things began to change and the Bishop’s greed led him to seek power once more.
The colonists barely made it through winter as they had assistance with all necessary aid by the six or seven people who were immune of diseases. Only fifty out of one hundred colonists have survived the time of suffering. In the article, “Colonial America Depended on the Enslavement of Indigenous People”, Marissa Fessenden states, “In 1637, they burned a village on the banks of the Mystic River in southeastern Connecticut, killing 400 to 700 Pequots.” The colonists had murdered natives by destroying their homes and territory. During the Pequot war, many of their tribe members were lost. This weakened the natives in war as they had very little men to send to resist the colonists.
In 1853, The Gadsden Purchase, a trade between Mexico and the U.S, was completed and the Mesilla Valley was sold to the U.S. for the sum of $10 million. He lost the support of his citizens and was exiled. In total throughout his life, Antonio López de Santa Anna was exiled at least 6 times. He drove back the French and due to shrapnel from a cannon shot, lost his leg. He later hosted a funeral for his leg and somehow his new prosthetic leg was captured and held as a battle trophy!
