It is not possible for us to understand the significance and impact of Vietnam War through one angle. There were numerous issues regarding veterans of the war. It was first war in history of USA when people of USA took an opposite stance on government foreign policy. Majority of the people were against the war. That is why, they did not any respect to the veterans who returned to the U.S after the war.
The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased. As America expanded west in the 1800s, conflict with natives was inevitable. In 1830, Congress passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830, asking the natives to give up their land in exchange for money. Some refused to move off their native land, such as the Cherokees. As a result of this, they were removed and forced to make the journey known as the Trail of Tears.
This precedent of mistreatment of minorities began with Andrew Jackson’s indian removal policies to the tribes of Oklahoma (specifically the Cherokee indians) in 1829 because of the lack of respect given to the indians during the removal laws. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries the Cherokees were going through a time of rebirth and regeneration. After the American Revolution the Cherokees confronted with economic depression. They gave up their homes, villages, towns and hunting grounds to white Americans. Many Cherokees adopted customs, beliefs and lifestyles of white Americans; they profoundly assimilated White culture because in this way they hoped could survive as a nation in their homeland.
Not only was this a sign that the world did not cooperate with each other, but it was also another sign that explained why the nations did not meet frequently at the World Court, which was made to solve arguments. There were many arguments between key European nations, such as Britain, France, Russia, Germany, and Austria-Hungary. They eventually split into two groups. Germany was a major threat to the world, especially when World War II broke out, but this is discussed
Braford E. Burns began writing The Poverty of Progress as a historical essay arguing against the “modernization” of nineteenth century Latin America. Burns argues that modernization was preformed against the will of the majority and benefited a small group of Creole Elite, while causing an exponential drop in the quality of life for folk majority. Burns supports his research through a series of dichotomies. Within the first twenty years of the nineteenth century the majority of Latin America gained independence from Spain. Prior to the Latin American countries gaining independence, the Creole elites expressed great displeasure with the crown and readily equated themselves with the American colonists before gaining independence from Britain.
Van Zandt take opposing sides on the issue. Kevin Kenny asserts that William Penn’s vision for cordial relations with local Native Americans was destined for failure due to European colonists’ demands for privately owned land. On the other hand, Cynthia J. Van Zandt argues that despite military disputes among the two bodies, trade alliances between the groups continued. Van Zandt further claimed that relational failure stemmed from conflict among various Europeans nations advocating for dominance over the New World.
In choosing Hitler and Churchill, two totally opposite leaders, Roberts examines the phenomenon of political and military leadership. He also looks at the way Hitler and Churchill estimated each other as leaders and how it affected the outcome of the conflict. Roberts mainly had made use of the speeches by Hitler and Churchill but how propaganda shaped the trajectory of these two leaders is not dealt with. The visual propaganda is generally missing adding to the non-academic connotation to the posters and caricatures. Similarly, Peter John opines that Adolf Hitler and Churchill clashed for years in public and their opinions of each other and feuding helped determine the course of the Second World War.
Both Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” speech and Kennedy’s inaugural address both talk about freedom. However, Roosevelt’s speech uses military power to get freedom, whereas Kennedy’s speech wants peace and negotiation to get freedom. During the time of Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” speech, Europe was just beginning World War 2. Adolph Hitler and his Nazi party already had taken over Norway, Belgium, and other European countries. Many Americans did not want to get involved within the war.
One of the main causes that had started the cold war was Europe , Britain and the Usa believed that some areas of europe were falling under communist control .Even though the two countries never really declared war on each other they did fight indirectly. The Cold War was a long time of fighting between some of the Western side of the country and the communist countries of Eastern Europe. The west side was led by the United States and the Eastern side was led by the Soviet Union. It started in 1945 and ended in 1989 . The Cold War had started just after World War II had ended in 1945 .
Looking back at the early 1930’s, there are many people today who would criticize the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain with his policy of appeasement towards the Natzi leader, Adolf Hitler. Appeasement is defined as “the policy of acceding to the demands of a potentially hostile nation in the hope of maintaining peace.” However, historians now know that peace was never an option for the German leader. His invasion of the Rhineland and Austria was only the beginning; Hitler had his eyes set on Poland, Russia and eventually the world. Chamberlain has been heavily criticized for simply handing over the Sudetenland because this action showed that Hitler had the upper hand. It helped the Natzis become much more powerful, encouraged aggression,
What effects did the French revolution have on federalist America? The French Revolution lasted from 1789 to 1799. Most of the conflict with the French revolution occurred in Europe. During the revolution Instead of the united sates supporting its French allies the United States remained neutral and didn’t pick a side. With all this political uncertainty going on the united states had a division of its people, those that supported Britain and those that supported France parties because of all the political uncertainty.
Even though Native American involvement during the Revolutionary War is often overlooked. they played a significant role. Not only did the war determine which direction in history America would take, but it also progressed the downfall of the Native Americans. They lost land and freedoms while America gained it. Both sides in the war wanted the Native Americans to stay neutral, however most Native Americans sided with the English during the American Revolution.
Although, some Americans were very against the immigration act and Robert Clancy (an American against both the KKK and Republican decisions) even went as far as to call it "un-American" (Rose. Vol. 3). Usually an open country, Americans stumbled upon a new fear and paranoia that had not been there in the past.

After that, they started to create treaties with other countries, lead business and follow peace. 2. Why did the “middle ground” between Native Americans and European settlers disappear?
