Narrative Frameworks and Erasure: Early U.S. – Indian Policy The invasion of New England in the early 17th century by European settlers saw a delicate balance struck between Native Americans and New English settlers. The settlers depended on Native Americans for their survival, and in turn Native Americans sought to investigate and contain the new element in their territory. In time, settlers seeking to expand westward used violence and brought disease that decimated native populations. European settlers claimed the land it as their God-given right, and declared themselves the first civilized people to occupy the land. The invocation of divine will is an example of one of the many ways in which Europeans sought to change the story about their relationship with Native Americans during America’s early history.
An established contemporary artist, Scholder has utilized several contemporary and surrealistic techniques to exhibit his observations of the modern American Indian. In order to properly analyze Mad Indian No. 3 one must understand the history of the Native American and his long battle against the stereotypes that is a constant road block in everyday life as he struggles to co-exist in his world and the western one.

Armed conflict in America existed from time immemorial. Wars among Indian nations predated European conflicts by centuries, and when the British, French, Spanish, and Dutch arrived in America, they brought with them the political, religious, and mercantile tensions of Europe, which would continue to echo the wars of the Old World within the New. In the Society of Colonial Wars,1892-1967: Seventy-fifth Anniversary, Nathaniel C. Hale, chronicled the conflicts of the Europeans with the Indians, the AngloDutch conflicts, the intra-colonial squabbles, as well as the grand campaigns between the British and the French. The aim of this historical essay is more modest. It tells the stories of selected conflicts that are examples of the changing relationship between the British settlers, the Indians, the professional British army, and the French.
It was left for Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, to make some sort of justification for the carnage. He was invited to give “a few appropriate remarks,” and he delivered 272 words, which are recognized as a masterpiece of the English Language.

Three explanations that Diamond details to support his position on the reason for European dominance are geography, food production, and animal domestication. One of the main arguments that Diamond stresses was geography.
Comparison Essay- Holocaust and Anti-Semitism As a field of study, history is open to different interpretations of the same events. Historians will no doubt see and understand the same event, or similar events differently. The Holocaust is one such event; Omer Bartov and James Glass each wrote different articles trying to explain the motives behind the anti-Semitism prevalent in Europe during World War Two (WWII) and the Holocaust which occurred as a direct result of that anti-Semitism. Each historian takes a different approach in explaining the same complex issue. Bartov's article, Enemies, Making Victims: Germans, Jews, and the Holocaust, focuses on long-term causes and effects of the anti-Semitism, using mostly secondary sources.
Nathan Evans Dr. Mayes AMH 2010 5 Oct 2011 Part I: B. Why did England decide to establish colonies in the New World and what challenges did early colonists face? The Age of Discovery was a time when droves of modern man dared to leave the safety of his homeland and journey into the unknown.
