Jackson led his troops to victory against the Creek Indians at Horseshoe Bend, during the War of 1812, killing roughly 800 warriors and gaining tons acres of land in the process. Because Jackson had won the battle with the Creeks, it ended up breaking their power of resistance and overran many of the other Southwestern tribes, even the ones that were working as allies with Jackson. Within the next few years the Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws and Cherokees gave up millions of acres of their land in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and west Tennessee, because Jackson had made agreements with them. Jackson had made such a huge statement by winning this War and making such a good military success that he was the given the title of Major General. On January 8th, 1815 Jackson was named a national hero because he led 5,000 soldiers and defeated 7,500 British in New Orleans.
His then morals somehow changed according to Wiencek, “The mansion sits atop a long tunnel through which slaves, unseen, hurried back and forth carrying platters of food, fresh tableware, ice, beer, wine and linens, while above them 20, 30 or 40 guests sat listening to Jefferson’s dinner-table conversation. At one end of the tunnel lay the icehouse, at the other the kitchen, a hive of ceaseless activity where the enslaved cooks and their helpers produced one course after another.” with this statement we can see that slaves were quick to respond to every need and want from Jefferson. A system was created to keep the property running in a well organized and complex manner. Davis later states, “In his lifetime Jefferson owned more than 600 slaves.
Just last year, over 135,000 horses were slaughtered with their meat being shipped to foreign seas (Finch). Horse meat has grown to be in very high demand in foreign countries which results in many slaughterhouses to be popping all over the world. Sadly in the United States, Canada, and Mexico is the main places in the world where these beautiful companion creatures are gathered, slaughtered, butchered and shipped off to foreign countries (Fact Sheet). There is much controversy on whether the slaughtering of horses should be allowed or not because the entire process that they go through is so bad and petrifying to the point where being dead is the best option that they can possibly have (Horse Slaughter-Wikipedia). Even though horse meat is in high demand for human consumption, it is inhuman because slaughterhouses use
Becoming a Confederate victory, the others are forced to retreat. All the dead bodies are put into mass graves, including Robert Shaw 's. Despite this, by the end of the American Civil War, more than 180,000 African Americans were in uniform, and ready to fight in the war together hand in hand. This movie was a really powerful movie showing that there is no difference among blacks and whites, and that everyone is the same with a heart that functions, and the power to go to war and fight for their
These men being known as the founding fathers The Virginia plan was to create a government consisted of what Edmond Randolph proposed that the national government be compiled of a supreme, legislative, executive and judiciary. It was also consisted of 2 houses. The lower house would represent states with the largest population. The members of the upper house would be elected by the lower house making the smaller states have little or no representation in the upper house at all.
However, it is believed that number was more likely to be around 300 kills. “Billy Sing is like modern rockstar. Everyone in ANZAC knows him. In fact several Generals and even an Admiral go up to the frontline to watch him shoot” Squadron Leader Hugh Dolan.

On Easter Sunday over 140 white men and teenage boys lined up in Colfax, Louisiana to ready themselves for an attack against the African Americans who lived there. The African Americans of Colfax readied themselves for the fight and in the end a reported number of 165 people died at the Battle of Colfax Courthouse. This number was larger than any other incident of racial violence in American History and it is likely that there were many more dead further out from where they counted. The Whites in Colfax made their victory public by leaving most of the bodies from the Battle unburied encouraging African Americans to go view the dead. I believe that although African Americans were given civil rights and liberties during the Reconstruction Era due to racism many of their rights did not go into effect until many years after they were legalized because of groups like the Ku Klux Plan and even racist Congressmen I believe that Reconstruction failed due to
Agh! music to my ears. As you all may know I have undocked fifty ships ready for battle. Each contain fifty Myrmidons; some of our best warriors. Now I need some worthy commanders to keep these ships afloat.
According to the Mid-American Bully Breed Rescue, there are approximately 5,000,000 registered pit bulls in the United States alone (Pit). Of that 5,000,000 there are roughly 35,000 in shelters. In Los Angeles alone, 72,800 are euthanized each year; if you break that number down, that means about 200 helpless pit bulls are euthanized each day, however if you would rather look at the bigger picture, in the U.S., 728,000 pit bulls are euthanized in just one year. Numbers like these are immensely horrid especially if you are an animal lover. Research was found to try to notify and persuade people into taking action in the spaying and neutering of their animals, eliminating animal abuse as well as dog fighting.
Lee’s plan was to take 60,000 troops north and take out as many military targets as possible. As his troops traveled north they collected various supplies from every farm and town they came across which strengthened his cause. His main goal was to head to the largest cities in the North which would greatly decimate the northerner’s capability and spirits. While traveling Major General George Meade was positioning his troops between Lee’s troops and the Capital until General Lee learned of his in Pennsylvania. This quickly prompted his attack on Gettysburg where on the first day 50,000 soldiers clashed in battle killing or injuring over 15,000.

Robert 's estimated the Afghan force at some 60,000 tribesmen: to oppose this horde, he had 7,000 healthy men, 25 serviceable pieces of artillery and 2 gatling guns. With this relatively puny force, he would have to man a perimeter encompassing 8,000 yards, consequently stretching his defences very thinly indeed. However, he did enjoy some advantages: Sherpur had it 's own water source, and firewood, food and ammunition to last 4
The most obvious is the shier size and composition difference. The Aztec force stood 300,000 warriors versus 700 Spanish infantrymen, 86 cavalrymen, and 118 crossbowmen were comprised of volunteers and adventurers, and over 50,000 Native Americans allied forces (Davis, 1999, p. xx). Aztec obsidian clubs and bows and arrows proved no match for the emerging technology armored infantrymen and cavalry of the Europeans.
