They were disliked because people saw them as fierce warriors and fanatical followers of the aztec gods. They controlled more than ten million people. But in 1519 it all changed when hernan cortes, a spanish conquistador, and 500 others came to tenochtitlan. The conquistadors took over and many sources of aztec history were destroyed. Luckily we few sources survived, enough to answer these questions But who were the aztec people?
The Sioux Indians had lived on the Dakota Territory for longer than the white men had been in North America, and they would rather die than allow the United States to take their land. The U.S. government used this as an excuse to murder the Indians, making it easier for them to take the lands they wanted. However, before the United States resorted to violence, they attempted to negotiate with the Sioux for their land. These negotiations would often end in threats from the U.S. due to the Sioux’s lack of cooperation. This eventually led to battles between the two parties, where the Sioux would most likely lose and forfeit
According to the story, “A long series of poaching affrays and similar scandals had embittered the relationship between the families for three generations” (190). As one can see, this represents that both men had been encouraged to uphold their family’s expectations to sustain the feud between both families. Ulrich states, “‘We have quarrelled like devils all our lives over this stupid strip of forest… I’ve come to think we’ve been rather fools; there are better things in life than getting the better of a boundary dispute” (192). Clearly, due to the conflict between the families, it was
Tupac 's won against the strongest kingdom those days during the war. During the war many people died it was a tragic. Manco died in the war after that the Incas continued the emperors. Before he died he tried to balance his love and responsibilities but did succeeded. Incas found out 1 year later the senice he tried to do that it made the war he died in.
Back in the days people were not educated, so diseases such as tuberculosis whippet out entire tribes. White settlers became to take Indian land for themselves. Many tribes resisted and fought back for what they had while others tempted to corporate. Over the next century native
Carson’s complex Indian relations as an Indian murderer, agent and even husband as he married twice into the Arapoho and Cheyenne tribes, exemplify the complexities of relations between not just the Native Americans and Carson, but all mountain men (Walker 2015, 5). Albuquerque’s Convention and Visitor Bureau calls Carson a rancher, trapper, and soldier while distinguishing Carson’s outward appearance as a contrast to the traditional mountain man look and attitude by saying his lifestyle was temperate. It appears that this does not line up in my opinion with the facts Northern Arizona University provide detailing how Carson’s military drive won out against his sympathetic nature when he “attacked the Navajo people with his cavalry units, burning Navajo cornfields and poisoning water
“He was a man of action and war (Achebe 10).” When it’s percieved too late to change the course of events, the tragic hero Okonkwo recognizes his flaws and gains sympathy from the audience. Okonkwo had much to deal with such as white missionaries in his village and even his own family. One of Oonkwo’s biggest fears was “being thought weak (Achebe 61)” and feminine. His self-worth couldn’t afford the loss of his dominance so after the killing of a clansmen “He could not return to the clan after 7 years (Achebe 124)”. He eventually ended it all when “They came to the tree in which his body was hanging (Achebe
William Wallace was a greatly feared man by English troops for he was known as a brutal heartless knight who didn 't seem to believe in mercy. All of this pure anger and hatred for the English likely came from one of four deaths. Wallace 's father was said to be killed in a skirmish with English soldiers, Wallace murdered a noble Englishman before joining the resistance and he was then constantly hunted as an outlaw by the english, his love interest Marion was murdered by englishman, and his uncle was murdered in retaliation to Wallace 's actions against Edward I. Though seen as a hero with a brutal death, he may have been one of the cruelest and darkest characters in Scotland
His dreams came to an end when his country geared for the war that he was forced to participate in. War crushed many people 's dreams and possible futures they may have made for themselves if they weren 't compelled into doing something they didn 't accept, especially something that would 've likely cost their lives. Even during the war, most of these soldiers had a hope of surviving and even returning home after the war to their families, but sadly those hopes got crushed by injuries and diseases that caused them to die. Dozens, sometimes even hundreds of soldiers were killed and wounded every day, these living conditions completely changed each and every one of the soldiers character and perspective of life
Sam’s death was brutal and totally uncalled for. Sam was executed because he was falsely accused of cattle theft; “‘Timmy, get Colonel Parsons,’ he cried. ‘They’re taking me in as a cattle thief ’”(180). Tim went through great lengths to try and get him out. Sam was a great soldier on the battlefield, you would expect that he would get some telling points, but it didn’t matter.
