In the end the war caused hundreds of Indians and colonist deaths and towns and villages destroyed. One of the worst attacks was Bacon 's rebellion. About a thousand Virginians broke out of control in 1676 led by Nathaniel Bacon. They resented Berkeley 's friendly policies toward indians (Document B). Chaos swept over the Indians and the rebellion.
The U.S. expansion consequently harmed many Native Americans and caused many problems. The Native Americans were kicked out of their homes, were depleted of resources, or killed. According to the “Trail of Tears” painting context, “the Cherokee faced hunger, disease, and exhaustion. Over 4,000 died on the journey.” Robert Lindneux displayed the Native Americans looking deathly tired and weak during the Trail of Tears. There were many of them all ages moving by horse, wagon, or walking.
Indians have been living in misery for centuries now, in reservations drowned in problems like alcoholism, drugs, and illiteracy. The white government has made inumerous attempts to try to assimilate them into the US mainstream population. The effects felt by the Indian reservations due to the negative consequences of white actions are unimaginably devastating. Native Americans have to rely on the government in order to survive, and sometimes that 's still not enough. Their lives have been shaped by the government so much that the effects of the past actions made by the whites have become substantially irreversible, forcing the Native American population to suffer and make sacrificing choices in order to live in the present world.
Consequently, many Native Americans began to negatively view Europeans and many would view them as inferior. Another way the Europeans impacted the Native Americans was by forcing them into slavery. The Spanish would practically enslave Native Americans through various systems, such as the encomienda, repartimiento, and mita. Usually, the Native Americans could not handle the arduous workload and many would die as a result. Conquest and forced labor caused the native population to significantly decline.
Since people were taking control of land that everyone wanted a lot of wars arose like the French and Indian War. Another bad thing that came with fighting in North America was the string of events that eventually led to the Native Americans being completely wiped out. Since fighting and war are almost always seen as a very bad thing causing all of it can generally be seen as a bad thing. It is especially bad if you wipe out an entire race of people who did nothing to you prior to you taking all of their
Smallpox was also a threat. One settler describes it as a “cloud over this province.” It drove off people and killed the people who stayed. It was also one of the major causes of the decline in the Native American population. There were definitely other kinds of diseases, but Smallpox was the most common. Both of these problems made it hard to settle Charles Town.
When at war , tribes showed little mercy, killing many women and children. Shocking, right? Secondly cities shrank in size and population. The population mainly shrunk because of the many deaths when Rome was attacked, people also flead from the country of Rome when the attack was going on. Many people were also sick after the war
There were some 15,000 captives that were still to be removed. There were draught and poor sanitation that made life very miserable. Very many of them died. The National Council of Cherokee and Chief Ross tried to plead with General Scott to permit the remaining Cherokees to wait till the weather was better for them to be moved. They also wanted to oversee their removal.
Native Americans were seen as warlike savages that often fought with their European counterparts; however, the reality of Native Americans was that they lived a simplistic life and had a scare population within their tribes. Native Americans were viewed as warlike savages—namely, they invaded Europeans settlements in which were built on Native Americans land—however this is a stereotypical view and not the actual truth. Manifest Destiny led to these beliefs because of the Americans concept of expanding westward. According to a source, there was a plague that had killed 90% of Native Americans before Christopher Columbus arrived to North America. Native Americans populations already faced a drastic decline, with the Europeans diseases and expansion
These stereotypes negatively affected them to not be taken seriously and were often made to live away from white settlers. If, they ever tried to fight back they were called monsters, the Natives were often treated like second class citizens in their own home. Next, when the settlers wanted land from the Natives, they would set up treaties and trade agreements, and if things didn’t go as planned they would ignore the treaty and take what they wanted by force. Eventually, they began kicking the Native people out of their home and they were forced to stay on reservations that lack the resources needed to survive . Approximately, 90% of Native Americans population passed away from disease in
With the first wave of Spanish colonization of the New World, many indigenous peoples were killed and their lands were seized and their way of life was destroyed (Tindall 26-27). When the Spanish showed up, they greatly overpowered indigenous peoples. They had iron, seafaring vessels, firearms, explosives, and swords, with indigenous peoples had copper, dugout canoes, arrows, and tomahawks (Tindall 27). This is immoral because the indigenous peoples would have no chance against the Spanish, and killing the indigenous people was senseless since they couldn’t fight back well anyway. When indigenous people were threatened by people in a village Columbus left behind, they attacked, killing ten people, only to lead to a retaliation that decimated their numbers (Tindall 21).
King Philips War created immense fear and hatred towards Native Americans and caused rebellions throughout the English colonies, the greatest rebellion being Bacons Rebellion. Ironically, the rebellion began with a pig. A group of Doug Indians took some pigs as payment for a debt that planter Thomas Matthew owed them. Due to the act, Matthew gathered a group of family members and neighbors to track down the Doug Indians, capture them, and beat most of them to death. In retaliation, the surviving Indians attacked Matthews’s plantation and killed one of his indentured servants.
The English arrived. They weren 't prepared for the European colonies. Europeans brought with them diseases and stange animals. The Native 's had not built immunities to the diseases and whole cultures were whiped out. The elders were killed and with them the oral spoken traditions and folklore.
In total, over 600,000 soldiers lost their lives in battle and to disease. While many soldiers anticipated the honorable death of dying on the field, there were twice as many soldiers that died from disease in the camp as that that died in battle. During the 19th century, medicine was relatively primative, and the lack of the germ theory or knowledge of antiseptic resulted in rapid disease spreading. Lack of general resources such as adequate clothes, nutrition, clean water, and santitary stations also contributed to the spread of common diseases like measles, typhoid fever, and malaria. Most commonly, soldiers suffered from diarheia and disentary, which combined with lack of clean water resulted in many cruel deaths.
With the rapid expansion of men and women in the West, the Native Americans lost their freedom to roam the plains. Often leading to armed conflicts such as the Great Sioux War, and eventually causing the signatures of many unwanted treaty 's. In turn leading to the confinement of Native Americans to reservations. In conclusion, due to the large amount of European, Asian, Mexican, Canadian, and African American men and women migrating to the West, many if not all men and women (due to their different cultures) were met with strong opposition from the
