To conclude, Andrew Jackson did many things unprecedented and was a considered a barbarian. His personality and beliefs helped make awful decisions. Jackson committed a crime that ruined thousands of lives, the Trail of Tears. Andrew Jackson was one of the most barbaric presidents who killed, ruined lives and defied many
Eventually the United States had a policy on Indian removal. The Native Americans were forced to travel to the east of Mississippi. This trip was brutal on them and it took a lot of lives. The Native Americans went through several wars and massacres in order to try and save their land which ended up taking a lot of Native Americans lives. Some of the following wars were Pequot War, King Phillips War, Pueblo Revolt, French and Indian War, Pontiac’s Conspiracy, Battle of Tippecanoe and First Seminole War.
Many lives were lost and changed. The Trail of Tears in 1839 was a horrific event that removed thousands of Native Americans from there homes. They were forced to travel a thousand miles on foot to a new land. Thousands of lives were lost along and after the journey. The removal effected the Cherokees greatly and it still effects them today.
They were also responsible for destroying a major food and supply source for Native Americans. Expansion in the South made it difficult for the Natives to keep their land. Over the mid to late 1800s, the Native Americans lost almost all of their land to the U.S. Document 1 shows that almost all of the Natives land was taken over the
His reign led to many rebellions, which obviously caused many people to lose their lives. If you resisted and your life ended, the lives of your relatives could also be taken to weed out any possible traitors. (Which I found rather brutal.) Also, if one were to be conquered and not killed, enslaved, or imprisoned, they’d be taxed heavily. As stated before, the Mongols were ordered to destroy the farmlands to make room for pasture, which led to the starvation of many people.
There were an estimated 200,000 people who were killed between 1992-1995 in a genocide commited by the Serbs against the Muslims, and Croats in Bosnia. On top of this, another 2 million Bosnians were displaced from their homes and placed in dangerous environments. Three main groups fought each other within the country, Bosnian Muslims, Serbs, and also the Croats. This was a horrible and important genocide that killed thousands of people between 1992-1995. Like the Nazi’s cleansing Europe of it’s Jews, the Serbs aim was the ethnic cleansing of any Muslims or Croatian presence in Serbian territory.
The Civil War marked a defining moment in United States history. The American Civil War was fought within the United States between the North (Union) and South (Confederacy) starting from 1861 and ending in 1865. Known as one of the most destructive events in American history, countless people had died, families were torn apart, and the American economy greatly plummeted due to the war effort. Throughout the war, due to the many hardships that were faced, many people lost the will to continue fighting. Soldiers in particular who lost the will to continue fighting and ran away became known as deserters.
Even though this was a time for colonization, Colonists faced numerous problems. Colonists died in Early Jamestown because of many reasons. These problems were Diseases, Lack of food, and Overpopulation. The main problem and cause of the Colonists death was the diseases. The nearby Indian tribes carried diseases that ultimately killed a lot of the English population.
Mass killing (murder) is defines as the act of murdering several or more people, typically simultaneously or over a relatively short period of time. The Boston Marathon Bombing and the massacre in South Carolina is two events that will never be forgetting in American history. Both massacres had huge impacts in the United States. Hundreds of people was affected by both massacres; leaving friends and families without their love ones. How can someone have this much hate to just go and kill/hurt a large amount of people?
During the Trail of Tears, the American government singled out a particular race, the Native Americans, and forced them to move west of the Mississippi, killing thousands in the process. This has been referred to by many as the American Holocaust. The Trail of Tears, as mentioned above, was the forced removal of the Cherokee nation in 1838. So, who is responsible for forcing them off the land that was rightfully theirs? The parties responsible for guiltily stripping the civilized Cherokee of nation of their possessions and forcing them to bear a 2,200 mile journey that killed an estimate of 4,000 Cherokee people are the Founding Fathers, white settlers, and the white settler 's greed.
