From the 1880s thousands for trekked westward carrying only a few belonging for the journey. The first Europeans EuroAmerican to see the west were mountain men trappers, overland explorers. Fur trading posts began to spring up throughout the interior. By the year 1836, the first of the migrant train was put together.from 1811,to 1840 the oregon trail was put down by traders and fur trapper.As frontiersman and fur traders from Canada and the u.s. started to populate the west of the trading posts and small settlements.At the same time the u.s. was rocked by the depression. Each part of the journey had challenges but they always need to keep moving to complete the journey before the supplies run out.Some were born on the great journey that connected the east coast to the pacific northwest and 3000,000 to 500,000 people traveled overland.
The next morning, after a lengthy 5-hour night of sleep, my individual team of 11 people departed into the mountains in pursuit of a specific house that was in need of help. We got to the house which reeked of some kind of indescribable odor and waited outside for direction while our team leader talked to the handicapped homeowner, Jim. When I heard the Jim's story, I didn't once think about the "work as little as possible" mentality. He raised 11 grandchildren by himself after their parents overdosed on heroin. By the end of the week, you would not have been able tell the difference between the initial home and final product.
The individuals responsible for the New Treaty of Echota would undergo their sentence for the violating of the Blood Law and 3 Cherokee men would die in one day. Chief John Ross would spend the next 30 years restoring the heart of his nation; reconstituting the Cherokee government, growth in business, and developing an education system for man and women. By 1860 Cherokee population would double and ancient tribal traditions were honored. In the summer of 1866, 70 year old Chief John Ross would pass away with comfort in the knowledge that the Cherokee Nation had reestablished themselves as a strong, sovereign nation and was prepared for the challenges to come within the years. Spoken in the words of Suquamish Chief Seattle “There is no death.
Cody became so good at what he did he was appointed Chief of scouts (39) In 1876 during the height of the war with the Indians, Cody spotted an Indian warband and after recruiting some other scouts engaged them in a skirmish. Cody dueled an Indian decorated with ornaments known as yellow hand and after killing him scalped his head and raised it into the air (55-58). This battle with yellow hand would be performed in his show and become one of the most famous parts of the Wild West show. He finally got to put on a show at his home town in 1882. As Reis explains in 1882 after 10 years in the theater Cody was challenged to put on a fourth of July celebration at his home town.
(pause) there are up and downs at every which turn like traversing the American countryside in the early 1800’s. Some times we fell into a hole but with support from the rest of us we were able to get out and be stronger from it. This reminds me a lot of the time when I was on the 7th grade camping trip. I know this event is basically beaten to death at this point and we would of heard it at least 100 times if everyone presented but I have a unique take on it that I believe will kind of tie into my Lewis and Clark metaphor well (wonder why I chose it). It was the first day of things and we were on some side of the road
A year later in April 1856 there was a controversy of who actually discovered, The Theory of evolution, because Charles Darwin had actually discovered is twenty years earlier. In May 1856 , this forced Darwin to write his information down and publish it before it was to late. In October 1856, Charles Darwin instead actually starts to write a new version about evolution its self. Due to all this Charles immediately goes to a meeting of the Linnaean Society of London on 1 July 1858 to present Wallace’s work without his consent and he takes his findings along with him. This resulted in both Wallace and Darwin’s work to be published together in the Society's journal
Dad stayed in the hospital for over a week by the time he came home, he had put over 70 Ivs in his arms. Dad was nervous to go to his appointment the next week because he didn’t want to stay there again. It was harsh that year he sleepwalked out in the cold to go to town but couldn’t find the keys. Mom told everyone to get up and help find dad, so I looked outside and when I looked in the car there he was sleeping in the driver seat. With the doctor bills and all of the other stuff we are kind of broke.
In 1993, Peterson’s left arm was weakened because of a stroke. As a child, Oscar Peterson’s dad wasn’t around often. He would have to leave for long periods of time, as long as fourteen days, just for his job. Oscar Peterson has gone through many different stories of racism. One day, he saw his friend, Ray Brown, had gotten a fresh new cut.
I cannot believe we have another marching band rehearsal. I have to walk out to the school’s marching band practice field again for the third time this week, just to go over what we already did yesterday. It is hot, humid, and I am tired. We go through all of this work, and we do not get anything from it. Why do we have to work for five hours a week for a ten-minute show anyway?
Most families have 9 months to prepare for their stork delivery we on the other hand had no idea. The call could come at any moment that a child was homeless and needed us. Little did we know when the call finally came that all we would have was a 30-minute trip to a neighboring parish. So, we prepared and painted a room, bought a crib and decorated it with whales, sea creatures and rubber duckies. This felt neutral, safe and prepared for anything.
At 8:00 AM they would take Trention. After Christmas Day the Hessian troops would be drunk and wouldn’t have enough time to form in their formations. They crossed the Delaware River and stayed in one spot for 3 hours and then they would go down a single road and split the fork and take the 1 ½ of an army down each road. the roads were River Road and Pennington. They arrived and charged into the city.
