Cabrillo hoped to find a wealthy city know as Cibola, and somewhere in the Pacific coast, and a connecting route to the Northwest Passage. The expedition sailed out of the port of Navidad, on June 1542 and brought with him a crew of sailors, soldiers, and Indians in three ships. By the end of the month Cabrillo passed Baja Point and entered uncharted waters, where no Spanish ships gone before. On the 28th of September he landed on an island which he named San Salvador, after his flagship. They reached as far north as the Russian River before the autumn storms forced them to turn back to San Salvador on November 23, 1542.
After a few minutes of debate we decided to change our view on WWII by declaring that we were taking sides against Japan in WWII. This was the turning point of WWII because the US had not been involved in the war until this point. Within a matter of days there were people enlisting for war and more being drafted? We also started shutting down small businesses to go and work in factories to produce war products. These products included ammunition and rifles.
The Duke, having interest in military conquest, followed the exploits of the American Army engaged in the Mexican War. He became keenly interested in the exploits of General Scott, and according to For the common defense: A Military History of the United States from 1607 to 2012 (3rd Edition) (2012), when learning that Scott had abandoned both his supply and communication lines in the early part of August of 1847, to push towards Mexico City, stated the opinion, “Scott is lost…. he can’t take the city, and he can’t fall back upon his base.” (p. 139). Scott and his Army was however not lost, and when the campaign ended he had pulled off an amazing victory which according to For the common defense: A Military History of the United States from 1607 to 2012 (3rd Edition) (2012), gave rise to the Duke of Wellington exclaiming that Scott was “the greatest living soldier”, and “urged young English officers to study the Veracruz-Mexico City campaign”, which he considered “unsurpassed in military annals.” (p. 140). What exactly was it about this campaign that would later have military leaders and historians calling it “one of the finest in the annals of American warfare”.
Millions of natives in the New World died due to European illness making it easier for the Spanish Conquistadors to move in and take over much of the Americas. Balboa in 1513 discovers the Ithsmas of Panama and becomes the first European to set eyes on the Pacific Ocean from the east. The explorations to the new world continued and 1519-1522- Magellan sailed around the world proving that Columbus did not find
Robert Gray, in the Columbia, discovered the river named after his ship and claimed the area for the U.S. And In 1805 the Lewis and Clark expedition explored the area. John Jacob Astor's fur depot, Astoria, was founded in 1811. Disputes for control of Oregon between American settlers and the Hudson Bay Company were finally resolved in the 1846 Oregon Treaty, in which Great Britain gave up claims to the region. Also Oregon has a $3.3 billion lumber and wood products industry, and an $859 million paper and allied manufacturing industry. Its salmon-fishing industry is one of the world's largest.
This claim can be supported by the Debs v. United States case, which took time during World War I. Eugene V Debs held a speech praising those who refused to serve in the military and obstructed recruitment - as a result he was sentenced ten years in prison. By Eugene holding his speech he is showing support for the enemy. Justice Katelyn asked a question regarding the Cohen v. California case in which a boy was protected by his First Amendment rights for wearing a shirt that said “stop the draft.” The question was directed towards United States attorneys Jacob Gore and Tyler Kerwin; the question presented was “If Paul Cohen was protected by his First Amendment rights for expressing his feelings against the draft, how does it differ from Charles Schenk expressing his feelings against the draft via social media?” Once again, United States attorneys disregarded the question and searched for loopholes to avoid a solid
During the Civil War, violent crime increased in New York City, and a police insurance fund was established in 1864 to guarantee financial security to the families of police officers killed or disabled in the line of duty. Between 1870 and 1894, New York's police department was restructured. In 1898, the department assimilated 18 smaller police agencies and later began to use plain clothes police officers for the first time. The department experienced a period of modernization from 1900 to 1920. Following World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, and civil unrest in the 1960's, the focus in 1970's was on rebuilding police-community relations.

An example of this would be the Indian Removal Act of 1830. While the goal of this was to expand rights of white men by offering them more land, the real group that was affected by this was the Native American groups living on this land, who were forced out of their homes. In 1829, in New York City, from the Society for the Reformation of Juvenile Delinquents, in their fourth annual report, the following is stated. “To confine these youthful criminals, is to pursue a course, as little reconcilable with justice as humanity; yet, till the House of Refuge was established there was no alternative.” This statement along with the following quote from 1834 by Charles G.
Montevideo was founded by the Spanish in the early 18th century as a military stronghold; its natural harbor soon developed into a commercial center competing with Buenos Aires. Uruguay's early 19th century history was shaped by ongoing fights between the British, Spanish, Portuguese, and colonial forces for dominance in the La Plata basin. In 1806 and 1807, the British (enemies of Spain in the Napoleonic Wars) launched the British invasions of the Río de la Plata. Buenos Aires was invaded in 1806, and then liberated by forces from Montevideo led by Santiago de Liniers. A new and stronger attack in 1807 aimed to Montevideo first, which was occupied by a 10,000-strong British force.
