Momaday and Brown have different purposes toward their respective landscapes as seen in the passages. Momaday’s purpose holds to view culture history of the Kiowa Indians and how the land itself holds beauty, in a most appealing positive attitude, which also reflects his background; “for my people.” Brown’s purpose, seen in the passage holds an opposite view, where it reflects a very dull aspect towards the Plains in a demoralized negative way. Momaday’s fanciful diction keeps his praise for Rainy Mountain alive with imagination choosing words such as “brittle” and “writhe,” giving a sensory image of how he feels and sees devotion of pride for the land. Momaday uses sources from his culture and the Kiowa to show a sense of clear imagination of the kind of heritage the land holds. He describes Rainy Mountain using his sensory imagination of how he feels and sees the landscape; colors in specific, making the audience have an idea of how it’s like when he mentions, “The grass turns brittle and brown… cracks beneath your feet.” He compares the many flashy insects as “yellow grasshoppers … everywhere… popping up like corn to sting the flesh…,” seeing the land with praise as to his culture of the Kiowas being reverent.
“For god sake” is a phrase which prickles the readers feelings- it is sharp, strong and full of raw emotions. Morpurgo has added this to show how some had a lot of gratitude for horses. It is a painful way to say goodbye though and Morpurgo has pressed upon the fact that just because a horse, like Topthorn, is beautiful doesn’t mean it will survive the harrows of a merciless war. The significance of Topthorn is highlighted when the vet officer expresses the unpleasant truth. The vet officer leaves a harsh mental image in the reader’s mind which instantly creates deep sympathy.
President Jackson said "I have long viewed treaties with the Indians an absurdity not to be reconciled to the principles of our government. the Indians are the subjects of the united States, inhabiting it's territory and acknowledging its sovereignty, then it is not absurd for the sovereign to negotiate by treaty with the subject...(doc H)" This shows that Jackson does not quite see the Indians as American citizen, but more of subject to America and that America may do as they need to to maintain peace. Chief John Marshall says this " From the commencement of our government, congress had passed acts ti regulate trade and intercourse with the Indians; which treat them as nations, respect their rights, and manifest a firm purpose to afford that protection which treaties stipulate. (doc P)." This shows that John Marshall is against the Indians removal because we have passed trade acts with them and we should treat them with respect as a independent nation.
This meant that the Indians would not be able to keep their culture, and their way of life. But in 1832, (Doc P) supported the Indians, when John Marshall clarified that they were a distinct tribe and should not be interfered by Georgia. But his decision had little impact when Jackson ignored it with contempt. Jackson thought they should take over because they were superior and needed to expand to the west in order to become wealthier. In (Doc A), the map shows that Jackson took the last bit of Indian land.
He wanted to keep the peace with them so that they would not attack their settlements although, some attacks by the Indians were overlooked. In addition, he did not trust that Bacon would follow through on his promise to not cause a mutiny. In reality, the Governor didn't want to disturb the trade monopoly that had been built. The frontiersmen understood this which lead to the their
Williams felt so strongly about his country that he was willing to end his job as a successful merchant so that he could devote himself to the cause of his country. Williams often spoke in public about his opinions that “America would see no days of prosperity and peace, so long as British officers should manage her affairs.” This was the reason for him signing the Declaration at the age of
The Indians there have a relationship with Britain and Britain arms them, trying to get America to focus on the Indians, rather than deal with issues at sea. Leaders emerge on the frontier. William Henry Harrison is committed to growing the NW territory and is appointed governor there. Tecumseh (military) and the Prophet (religious) are brothers and leaders of the Indians. The Indians do not want white men advancing further into their territory.
These words are negative words, and it makes the reader feel very emotional about the fact of being on a plantation. Most of the section is about Logos, because most of it talks about certain points about the plantation that makes it bad, like the clothes and living quarters that slaves had. Douglas slowly progresses the harshness of the passage, and this plays a great effect in the reader’s emotions. While the reader is thinking that nothing bad could ever happen, he names even worse things, and the cycle keeps going. Not only does he express his encounters, but he vividly describes them in a way that the
Although trading with the Natives were prohibited, Berkeley privately gave commission to some of his friends to trade with them and that they supply the Indians with powder, shot, etc. (Document E) Berkeley's friendliness towards the Natives were of both selfishness and common sense. Berkeley wanted to continue his successful trade with the Natives and did not want to have any problems. He knew that fighting with the Natives would not be helpful in anyway and would only cause problems and deaths. The relationship between the Natives and the English colonists were of ups and downs.
The Colonel said, “the provision and means for their transportation and support-the taking of them kindly, but firmly, by the hand, and telling them they must go and enjoy it.” The Americans did not even care how the Indians felt of their new home. It is important to the thesis of the essay because it supports my assertion that America treated to Natives horrible by removing them. Colonel McKenney said, “…the forbidding all interference with their concerns-for which purpose the presence of a few troops would be necessary.” The colonel basically forced his decision on Natives with no back talk. The last thing that was noticed that was important was a quote implemented inside the document. The quote said, “The proper study of mankind is man” The quote suggest that the only way to gain more knowledge on the evolution of human is time.
