How accurate are they? a. Part of the regional tensions were due the northern delegates wanting to end slavery and the southern delegates wanting to increase slavery .Mason of Virginia was against slavery, he felt the government should have more power over slavery. His predictions are pretty accurate. Ellsworth from Connecticut considered in moral light, ought to free those already in the country.
American citizens and politicians alike began calling the conflict the “second war of independence.” The political standpoint of entering the war was to preserve the rights of sailors and would-be American immigrants from British impressments. The US also wanted to prove that big brother Britain could not tell them who they could and could not trade with anymore (meaning France). This was an easy pill for the American public to swallow because of continued tensions with Britain after the Revolution and the rise of the anti-Britain, Democratic-Republican Administration and
He aggressively protested that they had no right to make a law which needed a license but at the end, Andrew Jackson stepped in and ruled that the Cherokee were a “distinct community” as America had the upper hand in the ruling. The Supreme Court Case made its final call which I think was correct because I think that Samuel Worcester was just trying to test the boundaries of the laws that the Americans made. On his part though, I think he and the other six missionaries were just being un-smart and it seemed to me that they did not know what they were dealing with. It seemed like Worcester was trying to be a smart-alec because he could have easily have
As territories were considered for statehood, the government wanted to be sure that there was an equal number of free and slave states admitted. The territories did not want the government to decide if they were to be a free or slave state. They wanted it to be what the majority of the citizens wanted, popular sovereignty. The Missouri Compromise involved admitting Missouri as a slave state. In order to do this they had to have another one admitted as a free state.
Price control created a nationwide threat of strike. B. U.S. officials hoped that government intervention would keep unemployment and inflation under control. II. To avoid strike Truman overtook the steel mill industry by using his presidential powers. A. Truman avoided the Taft-Hartley Act, because he was a friend of labor laws.
The Chickasaw tribe reluctantly agreed to this treaty under pressure from the United States, which left them little to no choice because of its mass power. In return for agreeing to this treaty, the federal government offered to provide the Chickasaw tribe with suitable Western land and would protect them until they moved to it. As a result of this treaty, the Chickasaw lost their ability to determine their own areas of settlement. This ‘negotiation’ demonstrates Jackson’s majority rule instead of looking out for the rights of all people, including minority groups that Jackson often showed a disinterest in helping. After this, Jackson believed, because the powers of the Mohigan, the Narragansett, and the Delaware tribes were growing over the power of the Choctaw, the Cherokee, and the Creek, that the weaker tribes should be moved to a different land to be protected.
Our founding fathers fought for a separation of powers between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches to avoid conflict and rise of power in one or more branches. In that aspect I believe the government works in a constructive manner to ensure equality between the branches, however, in the matter of working in a constructive manner for the good of the people is less certain. This country is facing an economic crisis and there are members of both parties that would tell the general public they would like the war in Afghanistan and Iraq to come to an end when in reality an economic recovery is the last thing they want to happen in a foreign country. The Republican Party, for example, would have liked to see a higher unemployment rate towards the end of 2012 in hopes of decreasing the chances of the President’s re-election. Higher unemployment rates lead to a more devastating economic crisis resulting in the failure to re-elect a democratic President or more precisely, our current President.
In an effort to avoid a possible war with Britain, Washington sent Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay to Great Britain to negotiate. The verdict was that the British promised to evacuate outposts on United States soil (not likely) and pay for damages for seized American vessels, with no promise to stop future seizures. In exchange, the United States had to pay back Revolutionary War debts and abide by Great Britain’s restrictive trading policies toward France. The treaty was not extremely popular, but for the Federalists it was an opportunity to create a better relationship with Britain. For the Democratic-Republicans, it was more like surrender to Britain and a betrayal of the South, who would have to pay a major share of the war debt while wealthy Federalist shippers were being
In this Act treaties signed by American agents and representatives of Indian tribes guaranteed peace and the integrity of Indian Territory’s primarily to assure that the lucrative fur trade would continue without interruption. American settlers wanted the Indian land extremely bad, but that led to violent conflict in many cases and succeeding treaties generally compelled tribes to cede large areas to the Unites States government. (cite) But must this remind you that, this happened centuries ago and nobody who was involved with this act is alive , so our laws today shouldn’t compile to what happened many years
The seeds of a removal program were sown in the series of negotiations with southeastern tribes that began with the first Treaty of Hopewell in 1785. Many citizens of the southeastern states, especially Georgia, believed that the federal government too often made concessions to powerful, well-organized tribes such as the Creeks and the Cherokees. In 1802, when Georgia was asked to cede the lands from which the states of Alabama and Mississippi would later be created, it did so only after extracting a promise from federal officials to "peaceably obtain, on reasonable terms," the Indian title to all land within Georgia's borders. In 1803, President Thomas Jefferson saw an opportunity to both appease Georgia and legitimize his controversial Louisiana
