This land has been enriched over centuries. One of the most important thing is that he talks a lot about the different Cherokee chiefs throughout the book. From John Ridge to John Ross and explaining the process they did to deal with the problem of removal. This book gives some strong argument and very good explaining about what happened in the removal of the Cherokee tribe by providing explanation and justifiable proof. Even though the author made excellent claims, we notice a little confusion there.
She talks about even occasions of outbreaks during the Revolutionary War. Through talking about other instance of the use of smallpox Fenn helps the reader realize the true horribleness of the Fort Pitt outbreak. In a sense she uses the other accusations to back up an early point she made where she said that “the most famous “smallpox blanket” incident in American history took place in the midst of Pontiac’s Rebellion in 1763” (qtd. Fenn). The other instance she writes about helps to prove her point that it was the most famous incident.
This investigation has allowed me to gain insight as to how historians utilize different methods, as well as challenges that they may face, when carrying out historical investigations. I feel that I have developed stronger skills of interpreting history, and have gained immense historical knowledge about a topic I would not otherwise learn about. In order to carry out the historical investigation, I read multiple books by historians of different ethnicities and origins, particularly from the Eastern Pacific region, I researched the chronological timeline of comfort stations, and I analyzed interpretations of events, all of which are methods often used by historians. I found a massive limitation in the sources I used to carry out my investigation. The majority of the books and websites I found, with a few exceptions,
Hilary Weaver argues in her piece of writing; that identifying indigenous identity is complex, complicated, and hard to grasp when internalized oppression and colonization has turned Native Americans to criticize one another. Throughout the text, Weaver focuses on three main points which she calls, the three facets. Self-identification, community identification, and external identification are all important factors that make up Native American identity. The author uses a story she calls, “The Big game” to support her ideologies and arguments about the issue of identity. After reading the article, it’s important to realize that Native American’s must decide their own history and not leave that open for non-natives to write about.
For example, Vesalius’s book De Humani Corporis Fabrica was written and published in 1543, therefore the primary source will include relevant and appropriate information form the time period. On the other hand, The History of Science from the Ancient Greeks to the Scientific Revolution by Ray Spangenburg and Diane K. Moser was published in 1993 therefore, it cannot have all the correct details from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The text can be biased because of the personal views of the author, and the time in which it was written could be influential because more accurate information can be discovered after the text is published. For instance, after William Harvey identified the parts and functions of the circulatory system, doctors and scientists developed new ideals based off of Harvey’s theories. Articles tend to be unreliable because journalists often give their impressions of the situation to please readers.
The chapters of our textbook, America: A Narrative History, written by George Brown Tindall and David Emory Shi, takes us on a historical yet comparative journey of the road to war and what caused the American Revolution, an insight into the war itself, and a perception to what life was like in America after the war was over. The essays of the book, America Compared: American History in International Perspective, collected by Carl J. Guarneri gives us a global context and a comparison between the North and South Americas in the dividing issues of labor, slavery, taxes, politics, economy, liberty, and equality. Part One These chapters in our textbook Tindall describes; the road to the American Revolution, the road to the surrendering of the British, and the road to the American colonists receiving their independence and developing the government which the people of the United States will be governed by. The road to the American Revolution consisted of several events, which escalated to the war that began April 19, 1775, as the tensions between the American colonies and the British Government advanced towards breaking point. The American colonies established their resistance to the British royal crown, as the ministers of King George III began to impose new taxes trying to reduce debt that incurred during the French and Indian War, aka the Seven Years War (1754-1763).
Moreover, the arguments and justification for independence of Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson. On the other hand, how Paine and Jefferson used equality, reason, and nature to criticize the legitimacy of monarchical government and British control of the American colonies. First, Colonial America had great conflicts for several years relating to Great Britain’s decisions. it began by 1763 with the proclamation of 1763 passed by Great Britain. It consisted on limiting the American colonists to expand further west.
Finally, I went to Poetrysoup.com and found a deserving poem. Afterward, I went back to Bartleby.com and searched for a quotation; the quote that I chose was long, yet exceeded my standards. Next, I went to the ELM site and clicked through three databases then on the fourth one I found a worthy article. Then I went to the on-line Card Catalog and that was a little difficult for me, but not as difficult as using the Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology. It was hard for me to understand because of all the abbreviations and choppy sentences.
What defines the word “British” and who are the people who consider themselves to be “British”? These are the questions that arise when one thinks about exactly how “British” the colonies of “British North America” were. In essence, when does North America take on the British identity? It can be posited that the British identity of North America came to be and was most apparent after the Seven Years’ War when Canada was ceded by France to Britain in 1763. In doing so, the colonies of Canada were now under the Crown and hence, the inhabitants (excluding indigenous people) of North America had become British subjects.
