And they are starving.” (pg.63) The colonies were forced to cannibalism. “One provident man chops up his wife and salts down the pieces. Others dig up graves to eat the corpses.” (pg.63) there was absolutely no means of food for the colonies this winter. They surly had no common sense; I mean really, how do you let almost your entire civilization die off? Could they not have planted their own food or hunted some game?
In 1865, the white men wanted to open a road in the Powder River country, and none of the Indians were pleased with this because of how much land was already taken from them (Pg. 124 Brown). “..Our women and children will starve, but for my part I prefer to die fighting than by starvation,” (Pg. 130, Brown), Red Cloud said this at a peace conference, although Red Cloud wanted peace he cared for his people more and didn’t want them to starve so he took a stand against the white men. All through the summer of 1866 Red Cloud’s ally White Chief was involved in a relentless guerrilla war fare.
Sadly a lot of lives were lost. But the good thinking that did happen was that the British retreated and we gained our rights back and never had to answer back to the British ever again. Epilogue: A few years after the war ended Revere retired from war and his trade. Revere would always love to tell stories of his ride to family and friends they all loved to hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Soon after he died at the age of eighty-three leaving children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and they have all heard and remember his midnight ride.
The storms and floods had taken all the good soil in the 1930s. People survived off of beans, rice, corn, and milk. Many slaughtered the cattle for meat because there was no market. All around the world people were living in horrible living conditions and there were not many jobs for those in need. Over 25% of people were unemployed and houses were being foreclosed

In March 1864 Forrest went on a month long raid to capture Union prisoners and supplies and to demolish forts and posts. On April, 12 1864 Gen. James Chalmers surrounded Ft. Pillow under the orders of Gen. Forrest. During this move to the fort there were multiple skirmishes, which included the loss of commanding Union officer Major Lionel Booth. The loss of Major Booth created much confusion throughout the Union soldiers. During this engagement a Union
He grew up to hate the English rulers of Scotland and this was made worse when his father was killed by an English Knight in Ayrshire in 1291. Later that year when he was visiting his uncle in Dundee he got into a fight with an English soldier who was stabbed to death. From that day William became an outlaw and went into hiding. During the next few years William gathered support and lived like a bandit. He was involved in many raids on the English occupiers and he avenged his father’s death by killing the English knight Fenwick.
Jack had evil intents to hurt the other tribe with the conch shell. Jack and his hunters have already brutally beaten and killed Simon because they thought he was the monster in the woods.

After being attacked by Jacks tribe they went to Castle Rock to find Jack and his tribe right before Piggy was killed.
When his family was wiped out by Mexicans and bounties of $25-100 were offered for Apache scouts, he rebelled, stating that, “His heart would ache for revenge.” As a cunning warrior, he led effective guerilla campaigns against the settlers, army and Mexicans for 35 years. This film deftly details the determined efforts of a small Chiricahua Apache band to resist the encroachment into their land of Mexicans, miners, ranchers, farmers, settlers and the U.S. government, as they sought to exploit it for profit and settlement. This is a familiar tragic tale in US history, but, in this case, the harsh treatment and intensity of hatred were exceptional in the wars against the Apaches. As documented with haunting black & white photos, letters, books, journals and newspaper accounts, it is an unpleasant story of cruelty, prejudice and betrayal. The government eventually won the war and moved the Apaches as prisoners to unhealthy reservations far away in Florida and later Oklahoma.
The introduction of the Indian Removal Act saw numerous tribes displaced from their ancestral homes time and time again, and while the rest of America prospered, they were forced onto small plots of land, and not even formally recognised as citizens of their own country. The buffalo which they depended on were slaughtered, causing widespread starvation, and every time they retaliated against this appalling treatment it only served to further reinforce unfair stereotypes which still haunt them to this day. Hopefully, by examining the mistakes of the past, people will avoid repeating them in the
