Eventually, as a long term project, results were not seen immediately of course, FDR gave the program to the WPA , limiting the project, causing it to become less successful.

As a result, the original 250,000 Arawaks living on Hispaniola in 1492 disappeared until none remained in 1555. The Arawaks were once a thriving tribe, but the Spaniards changed this forever. They took them as slaves and dehumanized them for years until there were none left to torture

Some say Christopher Columbus was a hero because he was the explorer that discovered America. In reality, Christopher Columbus had an incredibly negative impact on the world because he enslaved the Native Americans, didn’t help the kind Natives when they got infected by diseases that the Spaniards had brought to America, and killed off most of the Native American population. The tactics he chose to use were violent and destructive by the standards back then and now. First, Columbus treated the Native Americans like uncivilized people by enslaving them and forcing them to work for him although they greeted him and his crew peacefully. ” They could make fine servants,”(document 2) he wrote in his journal,”I took them by force.

Jackson can be denounced as a fraud and an opportunist who wrecked the U.S economy in the 1800s. He did not hesitate to use his presidential power and he was often referred negatively as “ King Andrew I” for his autocratic behavior. Indians were treated unfairly even when they tried to adopt American customs.

He may have presented himself as a common man but he was no different from an

The worst infectious disease which annihilated almost all of the Native American people was Small Pox. Small Pox was an Old World disease which was very contagious, disfiguring, and often deadly. The people of the Americas had no exposure to this kind of disease so when it struck them, they didn’t understand what it was, or how to cure it. So, when the old world people entered Americas, they bought their plants, animals and diseases which they already had exposure to, leading to their population growth, in contrast to Americas where the population declined due to lack to exposure to Old World life. In conclusion, the Columbian exchange changed the way of life of people in both the Worlds.
Those people moved to the city, where yet again they found themselves out of employment due to the Industrial Revolution making things more efficient. With no other method to support themselves, the farmers turned to crime to make a living. Although there were over 200 crimes that were punishable by death, including impersonating an Egyptian (Convict Creations N.A, N.D), many of those were not carried out, instead the criminals being banished to America.

When English royalty began giving charters for the exploration of America, people had no idea what kinds of adversities they would face. While eager to obtain new land and sources of economic growth, many ignored the possible negative outcomes of exploration. English settlers would be forced to overcome human and environmental challenges that would make it difficult to establish and maintain permanent colonies in America from the time of Sir Walter Raleigh to the time of Opechancanough. When Sir Walter Raleigh organized the expedition to Roanoke, the primary reason to go to America was the possibility of establishing a profitable colony.
