The author Daniel Henry Usner Jr brings the lower Mississippi Valley before 1783 into focus and delivers a coherent story of the complex social and economic history that is entangled into the Lower Mississippi Valley region. Usner reveals in this monograph the daily interactions between Europeans, Africans, and Indians in early colonial America. The study concentrates on the region along the Gulf Coast and depicts the frequent changes of political power beginning with the occupation of the French from 1699 to the early 1760s, and then the divided occupation of the Gulf Coast between the Spanish and the British from the early 1760s until the early 1780s. Usner does a notable job of exploiting the active participation in the local and regional

James K. Polk and the Expansionist Impulse by Sam W. Haynes Haynes’ biography of James K. Polk is a little bit different from the traditional biographical book with enumeration of important dates from life of historical figure. Instead the author takes different approach: while recounting development of Polk’s career, he looks at the Polk’s presidency through the lens of expansionism. Though he frames the 11th President as a strong adherent of aggressive territorial expansionism, Haynes also emphasises that Polk’s decisions cannot be separated from the political and social climate of his time. The author renders Polk from one side as the initiator of expansionists political moves, and from the other, as a product of contemporary social beliefs,

One of my favorite things about this book is that it is based on a true crime and at the end of the book there is the kid’s poem about Christopher which is very touching. The book had many good parts to it. The only thing I didn’t like about this is that it actually was based on a true story, and it’s sad to learn that the nice kid was murdered. Another favorite part of mine was when Doc, Hunger, Mildred, Squib and Hazel went on a mission to dump a barrel of animal poop on a guy’s car, which Doc and Hunger did all the work and they even dumped some inside the car. “Now, let’s shake it.
There he was, all alone walking through the forest on a cold December morning. Cutting paths for future settlers, and hunting game for his family. “Crack.” He stops as he hears a twig snap under someone or somethings’ foot. Before he can even turn his head they’re on him.
How would you feel if you and your family were denied the opportunity to a better life or had to wait years for one? The immigrants goal is to strive for a better future for themselves and their family. Coming here will help them achieve that goal. You may be thinking why cant they have a good future where they live? In some cases, the country they live in could be poor, not have many schools, is not safe, etc.
First, Immigrants migrated with the idea of the united States having a better life for them. Document D gives us an idea of the benefits an immigrant believed were true. The idea of no oppressive taxes, no kings, no compulsory military service, and no dungeons gave relief. All the troubles from their homelands would not be present in the Land of Opportunity. Taking a chance for a better life was the only option left.
Possibly Reason #3 and Evidence The last reason stated is that Children have hope for a better life and future ahead. Surprisingly, 5.3 million of these children are living with unauthorized parents. And these children usually get a high school or college degree, but can’t get a job because of the scare of being deported. “ More than half the undocumented immigrant population has a high school diploma or higher.”
An immigrant family wants the best for everyone lives, however moving to a new country brings struggles. There struggles include finding a home, a good paying job, avoiding to be deported, being separated ,and continuing their education. Immigrants expect a better life because their old home and country did have much benefits as the new country gives them. The advantage of an immigrant family is family values which tends them to be closer. Disadvantages of an immigrant family are the struggles that were first mentioned and including that they face other people calling them a threat.
Living in a potent economic country, immigrants like us have found more chances of employment from low skilled level to professional level with increased salary. We can get better pay compared to what we can get in our country. The dollar value is also much higher and more stable than many other countries’ currency which gives us a chance to support relatives still residing back in our native land. Finally, we come to the United States because we have our families already residing here and we desire to be reunited with them.
It is part of human nature to strive to go further, achieve more and become a better person. Many people nowadays decide to leave their country in search for a better life in order to provide positive changes for their future, and that is the main reason as to why people migrate. Reasons for immigration can include lack of educational opportunities, the standard of living is not being high enough, or the low value of wages. Immigration has become a major part of life in the 20th century, and many people see America as the land of freedom, countless opportunities and thus they choose to migrate to the United States whether as naturalized citizens, legal permanent residents, refugees, international students, or even undocumented immigrants.
