More and more people started to move out west due to cheap land and entrepreneur opportunities, even though those territories were already populated by the Native Americans. There were countless confrontations between these two cultures, that either showed how they coexisted and fought each other. The constant fight probably caused the Native Americans to be close to extinction, because they fought for their right to stay on their land and not learn the culture of the
People made their money from land-ownership and commerce was something that would have been looked down upon a few decades earlier. Mandarin’s gradually lost their prestige and were not much better off materially than the merchants and peasants they governed. Commerce and business became not only respectable, but also desirable to develop a country. The French also began to educate more natives and open up the middle and upper levels of government to the locals. When Duong Thieu Chi got a job in the colonial government, the French had become more militant and structured (Elliot, p. 85).
Transportation to one place would be easier due to the fact that there are now many ways to get to one specific location. Aside from the positive effects of Moses’s work, there are also a vast amount of negative effects. One negative effect is, many people were evicted from their homes due to his construction. “His Cross Bronx Expressway all but destroyed the life of the borough. It is estimated that during his career Moses caused a quarter of a million people to be evicted from their homes to make way for his highways” (Kunstler, 100).
Japanese American were one of the major sources of labor, main forces to the agriculture and some families even had their own lands. This order prevented them to work which cut down the large amount of experience labors and decreased the tax collections. In addition, because of Japanese did not have enough of time to prepare for the relocation, they had to sell their home with the cheap price which reduce the competition of land market. The housing price and labor sources were unstable, and weak. Many families lost their homes, farms, jobs and other properties.
Difficulty Settling in Charleston The biggest threat to the settlement of Charleston was the un-happy local Native Americans, because the British were building a permanent settlement. The English wanted to settle there because they thought there was a food source,water,transportation,and fertile soil there,but there were some conflicts such as not enough food, or resources, the bad geography, and the disease that was spreading throughout the town. Many people were hesitated to to settle there because of these reasons. Settled means to adopt to a more steady or secure life style of life, especially in a permanent house or job.
I really enjoyed this chapter from American Indian Activism because I was not aware of how many organizations there are that support and spread awareness for Native American rights. I think the amount of organizations created was an eye opener for the government because the government seemed to not treat the Native Americans with respect. In other chapters I have read, the Native Americans were not funded properly enough to live in reasonable conditions. The Native Americans were living with inadequate housing and plumbing issues. There were many organizations discussed in this chapter, but I am just going to name a few.
The traditional social ties where members of the extended family could ask for support from one another in times of hardships have been weakened by urbanization. The urban way of life coupled with social disintegration and western way of life has increased people’s tendency not to acknowledge relatives outside their nuclear family. Access to social support in this modern day has been decreased by the increasing rate of individualism. Polarization and social stratification where social groups are formed can also be considered as a positive effect of urbanization. The class system that exists in urban areas favors the rich and those whose voices can be heard, this development leads to the poor becoming poorer and the rich becoming richer.
This was profitable both for the new merchants in the growing towns and for the farmers who chose to raise sheep instead of planting crop. The peasants were thrown away from the patches of land they were renting, as the owners set up fencing, and they had to move to the city. But these unskilled laborers only managed to get poorly paid work or no work at all. As the nobles and the merchant class bathed in extravagance, the people suffered greatly. Most decades of the Elizabethan Age, there was an increase in the poverty rate.
The bad soon outweighed the goods as it had negative economical, social and political effects At first it seemed positive as it allowed them to free their prisons and utilize that space and the money for the benefit of the common folk. Then it got gradually worse as the demand of slaves to work in plantations grew exponentially and the countries had run out of prisoners to offer, they soon resorted to other methods to obtain slaves. This led to an exponential increase in war and mortality rates and a decrease in population, specifically the males, for the sole purpose of capturing more slaves for the lucrative
Americans had a strong belief that immigrants drained the resources such as medical services and the education of Americans. This belief stemmed from how people felt the government was not doing enough with the issue of immigration as only 28% of respondents in the study above said they were satisfied with how the government handled the issue. They were unaware that a majority of immigrants took jobs undesired by most Americans, “Migrants usually take jobs that natives are unwilling or unable to do, thus complementing the local labour force rather than competing with it” (“Changing Public Perceptions of Immigrants”). Immigrants helped build the infrastructure of the American society. They did the jobs undesired by most Americans such as being a maid, a housekeeper, a janitor, and a taxi driver.
Also because of the distance from England to America was so great, their troops that were shipped in were probably not so fresh. They had bad communication and poor supply because of this distance as well. We also had better politicians. Our soldiers in this era were largely untrained militia that were better suited to fighting the Native people

Some Americans could enjoy the changes since the market revolution whereas others saw it as the end of their liberty. Farmers were happy before the market revolution they had the freedom to be their own boss. However, after the market revolution, they were forced out of their home, breaking up families and the community system, which was a form of support. “Although many Americans welcomed the market revolution, others experienced it as a loss of freedom. Especially in the growing cities of the Northeast, economic growth was accompanied by a significant wondering of the gap between wealthy merchants and industrialists, on the one hand, and impoverished factory workers, unskilled dock workers, and seamstresses laboring at home, on the other.
Native Americans flourished in North America, but over time white settlers came and started invading their territory. Native Americans were constantly being thrown and pushed off their land. Sorrowfully this continued as the Americans looked for new opportunities and land in the West. When the whites came to the west, it changed the Native American’s lives forever. The Native Americans had to adapt to the whites, which was difficult for them.
When the English settlers came over to the Americas they were not expecting to find indigenous people already there. These people were the Native Americans. Over time the English settlers formed one of two relationships with the Native Americans that they encountered. Some of the English and indigenous people became allies and worked together in hopes of benefiting their own society. Other groups of English and Native Americans did not get along and conflict broke out.
