In 1830 Congress passed the Indian Removal Act, this would start the treaty negotiations with Native Americans. Although, this was really and act forced Native Americans to move and give up their lands that were east of the Mississippi for land in the West. “...state and federal governments pressured the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Cherokee nations to sign treaties and surrender land” (yawp). When the Cherokee nation tried to defend their land, they sued the state of Georgia for the protection of their lands. They even went to the Supreme Court after Georgia revoked legal state agreements that they had with the Cherokee’s, that had guaranteed rights of movement and jurisdiction of tribal law.
The Georgia government recognized that Worcester was influential in the Cherokee resistance movement and enacted a law that prohibited "white persons" from residing within the Cherokee Nation without permission from the state. When I first started researching the case, the sources I looked at gave no mention to the fact that Worcester was wanted and welcomed in the territory, or that he was helping the Cherokees with legal issues. The fact that he was helping with legal issues is probably the main reasons the Georgia government wanted him off the territory, as they wanted the Cherokees out of their boundaries.
The election separated the nation in half and also urged 7 states including South Carolina seceded from United States. From then on, the pro-slavery and anti-slavery were officially against each other, which soon gave rise to the Civil War. In conclusion, the issue of slavery precipitated the Civil War. Uncle Tom’s Cabin gave a strong social effect on opposing slavery, the Kansas-Nebraska Act was the prelude of the Civil War, and the Election of 1860 splitted the nation into two sides, which directly led to the War.
He spent many years fighting the land from the Native Americans to give to the white farmers. In 1830, President Andrew Jackson, he signed the Native American Removal Act. When President Jackson signed the act, it gave the Federal government power to exchange with the Native Americans. They were considered as part of the United States. When that happened, it gave the government to do treaties fairly, voluntarily and peacefully.
The conflict between the Americans and the Natives for the Native’s lands caused the government to created an Act to move the Natives. This compromise was the Indian Removal Act, “An Act to provide for an exchange of lands with the Indians residing in any of the states or territories and for their removals west of the river Mississippi” (United). The Act was passed on May 30, 1830 (Removal), and moved the Natives’ across the country from Georgia to Oklahoma (adamelhamouden). The Removal Act was for all Indians, but there were many other treaties that the government used to move the Natives. The Cherokees used the Treaty of New Echota.
This was because gold was found on Cherokee land in Georgia, and American citizens needed more places to live, expanding our territories further south. However, someone got in the way: a man named Samuel Worcester allied himself with the Cherokee Indians and sued the state of Georgia in 1832. This led to the Worcester v. Georgia Supreme Court case. Chief Justice John Marshall ruled in favor of the Indians, stopping the removal, but Jackson didn’t listen, disobeying the Judge’s orders. For someone or something to be unconstitutional, it must first be judged by the Supreme Court.
At the start is was not the aim to a abolish slavery but join America as a nation, abolition came later. This was because of the military necessity, growing anti-slavery sentiment in the north and the self-emancipation of many African Americans. This is where they fled enslavement as Union troops and went through the South, five days after the bloody Union victory at Antietam in September 1862, Lincoln made it official that “slaves within any state, or designated part of a state in rebellion shall be then and thenceforward, and forever free” (Networks, 2015). Nearly 100 years after this the African Americans in the Southern states still inhabited as starkly unequal world of disenfranchisement, segregation and various forms of oppression, this included violence because of the colour of their skin. The “Jim Crow” this law barred African Americans from bathroom, classrooms, theatres and train cars.
My intention with this essay is to give a wider understanding on why the speech happened and just what impact it has had on the country. So what was the events leading up to the Speech held that morning in November 1963? In the year 1860, the republican presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln was sworn into office as the president of the United States.
There was a move by the legislature in 1956 to incorporate a similar Confederate battle flag into the state flag. These legislators, who supported the segregation plans in defiance of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown V. Board of Education decision, also gave their support to changing the state flag to incorporate the Confederate battle flag (Cobb 111). , it’s simply ahistorical to deny the flags principal use in the 1960s was a segregationist symbol- and black Southerners haven’t
Because of the official and unofficial military expeditions into the Spanish territory, Spain ceded Florida to the U. S. in 1821, according to the terms of the Adams- Onís Treaty. Once the United States officially gained control of Florida, it began pushing the Indians there to leave their homes more and more to relocate with the other southeaster tribes to Indian Territory. They figured that the Indians would be happier if they were with people like them. Some Seminole leaders decided to sign a treaty in 1832, and moved part of the tribe, and they then became known as one of the Five Civilized Tribes.
The Black Codes denied blacks availability to guns, insulting language (or blasphemy) illegal, and barred blacks from voting. In Mississippi, blacks were even subject to plantation work if they could not prove their employment. Andrew Johnson allowed this behavior and even vetoed a bill that would 've denied his right to. Proving the ultimate weakness of the reconstruction plans. In response, the Republican Congress was able to override Andrew 's vetoes for once, and the pass laws for civil
Leslie Chihuahua United States History to 1877 11/13/2015 11:00-11:50 AM Missouri Compromise was an agreement from the House of Representatives to reach a median to keep slavery out of Missouri after all the tribulations it had caused before it became a state. Henry Clay, Speaker of the House made important decisions in order for Missouri to be admitted as a state that could impact American history. In 1819, slavery was a resourceful profit to slave owners and this sparked a sectional controversy in the country over the efforts to expand slavery into the new western territories. The country had 22 states, eleven free eleven slave, and the line between them were distinguished by the northern and western boundaries of Pennsylvania and the Ohio River. (Txt.
Both Johnson and Zinn had interesting views on the topics and they also had similar points. However, Johnson stated that Americans wanted more land and they were not satisfied after the Louisiana Purchase. This is where the Manifest Destiny came about to continue expansion. They wanted to take over the whole western portion of the continent, in order to spread the ideologies of Democracy and Republicanism. The South especially wanted to the expansion because they wanted to extend to slavery to maintain their power and balance in Congress (pg. 372).
After the Union won the major battles that is when Lincoln had put the ten percent plan on the table, this plan was when ten percent of the state’s eligible voters pledge oath to US then they could join the Union. To begin with, there are a few reasons why one would say that reconstruction in the south was a failure. One of these reasons being that, even after the civil war in the South’s government passed laws to limit the rights of the free African Americans. In document C we can see this is evident where it states “No negro or freedmen shall be allowed to come within the limits of the town of Opelousas without special permission of his employers. Whoever breaks this law will go to jail and work for two days on the public streets, or pay a fine of five dollars.”
