They would kick the Indian out of their land and take it for their own, The United States quickly became one of the twentieth century’s most powerful nations after settling more than three million square miles of rich, diverse land. But despite all the riches it came at a great cost and destruction to the American Indians. The warfare between the US and the Indians began as early as 1809 and lasted until 1890, to which the Indians losing and being forced to live on reservations.

1. Fernando Cortes was a Spanish conquistador who led an expedition that caused the fall of the Aztec Empire. In his First Letter to King Charles I of Spain dating to July 10, 1519, Fernando Cortes provided a detailed account of his activities in Mexico. He described the country as rich in resources and its native people as savage barbarians who sacrifice their own persons for their idols. Cortes wrote that in the short time they explored the lands, the expedition has discovered that everything that King Solomon brought for the Temple existed in this country.
Once the job is done, they bring them back to Mexico. For example, in paragraph thirteen, “In the nineteenth century, American contractors reached down into Mexico for cheap labor…-Mexicans were rounded up and the back over the border…” This paragraph explains how cruel Californians are and how much they used Mexicans to build their society. Alternatively, Rodriguez mentions a quote, on paragraph seven and the other on paragraph 75… “I will send for you or I will come home rich,” which brings in a powerful meaning, of a dream that they have as immigrants. Immigrants all have that image of California as to where money is found everywhere, where they will become rich, and no longer have to struggle. Then when reality finally comes, it is nothing like they have ever seen, where they struggle harder to become a citizen of America, and how it is to find

The Cry of Dolores marked the beginning of the long and bloody Mexican War of Independence, which would not conclude until 1821. Millions were killed or displaced in this long conflict. During his trial, Hidalgo seemed to understand what he had wrought and recanted his actions, perhaps foreseeing the bloodbath to come. The Cry of Dolores was the spark that ignited the tinderbox of long pent-up resentment of the Spanish in Mexico. Taxes had been raised to pay for fiascoes like the disastrous (for Spain) 1805 Battle of Trafalgar and in 1808 Napoleon invaded Spain, deposed the king and placed his brother Joseph Bonaparte on the throne.
