Maya prepared for battle but the Spanish beat them. The Spanish massacred the Mayan but the Mayan launched a coordinated attack in response but, the rebels retreated after a savage counter attack. When the Spaniards enslaved the Mayans, if a Mayan revolted they were burnt alive and hung because the Spanish believed that if they did not keep the Mayan at a constant state of fear the Mayan would rise up against them. The Spanish would hurl native Americans into pits with sharpened stakes if the dared to resist them. The
Therefore, he gathered numerous documents about the case into his documents. The atrocities committed against Vietnamese civilians was a political threat to Nixon’s strategy of Vietnamization. Nixon’s goal was to turn the war over to the South Vietnamese so that he is able to withdraw most of the U.S. troops. The massacre in My Lai would further justify the resistance of the enemy and it was the complete opposite of what Nixon wanted to accomplish.
(Source 2). This shows how Amin not only immediately placed the country in bloodshed but also committed major crimes against the innocent people of Uganda. He used his words to manipulate the country into taking his side only for them to learn that he was a brutal man who was willing to be cruel and monstrous towards his own
The Ethiopian Civil War had begun with a military coup d’état against Emperor Haile Selassie in 1974 and lasted until 1991 when the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) overthrew the government.This uprising of the people wasn’t unexpected as one would think since another coup attempt had occurred in 1960, which Emperor Haile suppressed by claiming to step up with the reform policies. Those promises failed, and the people started to revolt against the emperor, and after a wave of demonstrations, mutinies, and uprisings they succeeded in overthrowing him. There were many reasons which made the people of Ethiopia want to revolt against their Emperor such as his lack of attempts to modernize the country, address deep social
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.
The Serbs believed that the Bosnian Muslims were a disease infecting Bosnia, and they were taking it upon themselves to rid Bosnia of the Muslim culture, it is what they called “ethnic cleansing”. The Serbians used methods similar to Nazi Germany in order to gather groups of Bosnian Muslims to exterminate. The most gruesome mass killing happened in Srebrenica, Bosnia, and was appropriately named the Srebrenica Massacre. In the summer of 1995, Serbian forces began sweeping through the streets of Bosnia and Herzegovina in search of non-serbs, specifically Muslims. The ones that did not have the sense to escape Bosnia while they could were found and capture.
When Facundo returned to La Rioja to rule with a brutal and iron fist, there was a civil war going on. He pursued women, gambled, and executed those that opposed him. Facundo eventually sought refuge in Buenos Aires to escape his enemies and traveled to Mendoza and obliterated the once beautiful city. Afterwards Paz was captured and Facundo headed back to San Juan. Sarmiento views this as a great tragedy, for it could have been such a productive region.
Introduction Postcolonial writings have invoked the notion of social Justice, resistance. Freedom and egalitarianism in its attempt to counter dictatorial structures of racial discrimination, prejudice and ill treatment. Subaltern studies ‘occupied a prominent place in post colonial writings.

Under Louis XVI France has depleted most of its finances, and is in debt because of France’s financial and military support of America during the American revolution. This has led to famine and civil unrest, while also giving birth to the revolutionary idea of nationalism during the French revolution. Radical leaders such as Robespierre used the idea of nationalism to motivate people into joining revolution in order to create the French republic. However, the true leaders of the revolution were the people, as they were the ones who stole the gunpowder from the Bastille and stormed Versai, while the leaders were just the ‘head of the snake’ that told people what to do in order for them to get what they want. Furthermore, nationalism did not spark the revolution, but rather fuelled
This was spreaded by Berkley’s failure to defend the frontier and instead allowed Native Americans to invade. Bacon commanded two unauthorized but successful expeditions against the tribes. He was then elected into the new house of burgesses. As a result, Berkeley arrested him. Soon after, Bacon and his supporters marched in Jamestown.
To be honest it looked like suicide to join the armies. Also the color guard to me seemed foolish and more suicidal because people run into battle carrying no weapons but a large flag and to me the was like “please kill me, I can be easily seen, look at this flag of your enemy, and try to shoot me!!!! !” I struggled to understand why they used those tactics, because to me they lacked common sense. Then I read about why they did stuff like this. They made the lines because the smoke from the guns the soldiers could not see what they were shooting at, so the officers put them in a line so the might actually hit something out of luck.
The Klu-Klux-Klan was a white supremacist group that opposed “Reconstruction” and equal rights for freed slaves (Hook Exercise). They, to my standards, really would do whatever it takes to stop Reconstruction, even if it meant killing innocent people for that. John W. Stephens, a former senator from Caswell, was brutally murdered by none other than the Klu-Klux-Klan in a Grand Jury room (Doc.A Par.1). John W. Stephens was stabbed five to six times then even hanged on a hook in the same jury room. As Albion Toruage quoted, “ Another brave, honest Republican citizen has met his fate at the hands of these fiends.” Then Abram Colby, a former slave who was elected to the Georgia State Legislature during Reconstruction,(Doc.B,Para.
