Tensions were rising between the colonists and the Indians, the people were facing very hard economic times and were looking for a way out. The colonists found their scapegoat in the form of the local Indians. The trouble began in 1675 with a raid by the Doeg Indians on the plantation of Thomas Mathews, located in the Northern Neck section of Virginia near the Potomac River. Several of the Doegs were killed in the raid, which began in a dispute over the nonpayment of some items Mathews had apparently obtained from the tribe. Things got much worse when the colonists struck back, but they attacked the wrong Indians, the Susquehanaugs, which caused a large amount of Indian raids to start.

The intended death and destruction of a people just because they are of a certain origin or ethnic background does fall under the definition of genocide. The fact is that most of white America is in denial of this term “genocide” and the idea that this continues to haunt the Native Americans of today.

In conclusion, the Armenia Genocide was a disastrous time in history. Millions of people lost their lives for selfish reasons that could have possibly been handled differently.

According to how the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide defines genocide and statements for Grigoris Balakian’s account, the Ottoman government’s actions against its Armenian subjects in 1915 and 1916 did constitute

At the climax of the fighting, it was believe that the white settlements would be completely destroyed due to the tribal confederation’s overwhelming numerical superiority. Hundreds of Colonists were murdered and many settlements were destroyed. Colonists began to flee to Charles Town. This caused Charles Town supplies to run low and starvation began to set in.

One officer, Captain Silas Soule refused to follow Chivington's order and told his men to hold fire. Other soldiers in Chivington's force, however, immediately attacked the village. Disregarding both the American flag and a white flag that was run up shortly after the soldiers commenced firing, Chivington's soldiers massacred the majority of its mostly-unarmed inhabitants.

Many people throughout the Reign of Terror were killed by a guillotine. This affects not only them but their family and friends too. Life is the biggest thing anyone has to lose whether it’s yourself or a loved one. 20,000-40,000 people died from the guillotine alone. (Document F) This loss adds to the evidence that people of France did not want the Reign of Terror, therefore it is not justified.
One of those things was to take complete control of all the land. They continued to expand their land into areas that were still inhabited by Indians. For a while, Englishmen tried soft tactics, but since Indians were not willing to give up their lands easily, the answer became annihilation. Englishmen’s views concluded that Indians were savages, and they had no right to own or exist on lands that God had given to the white men. Indians throughout were forced to surrender their lands, and although they put up resistance, it was not enough to stop settlers’ expansion and the Indian’s lands were violently taken, and many were killed in the process.
