They also offered to join as allies against neighboring tribes. But conflicts arose over land disputes and other disagreements, and the English ended up angering the Powhattans. The English now viewed this tribe, and other tribes around them as a mere obstacle in the way of their plans for settlement. War broke out and the Indians were eventually driven from their native lands and forced to move farther west. The English were now left to fend for themselves with no allies, just
The Positive Effects of Westward Expansion There were many changes in the United States during Westward Expansion. Though many changes were negative, the positive things outweighed the bad things. Without Westward Expansion the US would never be the strong, independent nation it is now and we gained almost one third of the land that we own now. Also, another positive effect on the United States was the California Gold Rush, which brought diversity to our country and created jobs. After all of the bad things that our country went through, we came out as a stronger nation.
Industrial Giant American manufacturing flourished for many reasons, for one new natural resources were discovered and exploited steadily, thereby increasing opportunities. These opportunities, in turn, attracted the brightest and most energetic and expanding population. The growth of the country added constantly to the size of the national market, and protective tariffs shielded that market from foreign competition. The foreign capitals entered the market freely, in part because tariffs kept out so many foreign goods. The first big business was railroads in 1886 by Charles Francis Adams, Jr.
Western Civilization leads in categories of politics, economics, science and technology and in each category the West gained efficiency and effectiveness. It is seen by many people that Columbus used his power to conquer the people of the new world and commit genocide and slavery but at the same time Columbus brought knowledge to these people and enabled them to become as powerful as Western Civilization. Over time, Western Civilization has faced adversity but like Columbus, they have done whatever was necessary to keep expanding Western influence. The article also clarifies the debate over Columbus because it shows that Columbus cannot be looked at as good or bad; Columbus has to be looked at as an admiral, who took necessary action in the new world to keep Western Civilization on top. If Columbus had not taken the actions that he did, the people of the new world may have overthrown him and the western influence and that could have changed the world as we know it forever.
Rather, evidence points to a hybrid of them all. The sensationalised press undoubtedly cultivated mass jingoism amongst the American public, sparking a hysteric challenge to McKinley’s political prestige. Despite early reluctance from business constituents, by 1898 Wall Street financiers were also pushing interventionist agendas, therefore providing weight to the Marxist interpretation of a more planned, economically-based US imperialism (certainly prominent in subsequent efforts to muzzle Cuban and Filipino independence). Internal Hawks continued to vehemently criticise McKinley’s hesitation. The spectacular continental expansion Westward and the advent of new technologies during the industrial revolution were rapidly allowing for new concepts and new propositions.
As the Indians were forced to leave the land white people just came over and took part of the land that belong to the reservation and there was nothing the Indians could do about it. The discovery of gold made matters even worst as Americans came across the land looking for fortune in large numbers and in the process destroyed the land and the ecosystem. Their vast numbers drove away the bison herds and forced them to change their emigration patterns, which made it a lot more difficult for the Indians to sustain themselves. In addition to being forced to move to small reservations they were put on rationed food and supplies from the U.S government and to change their culture all against their will. The reservations were not set on the best land; those were given to white Americans.
The railroads also brought the riches of the West, thousands of tons of ore and cattle by the millions could now flow east to be processed and consumed. Migration to the west had its difficulties, and newly arrived Americans on the frontier clamored for a solution to what they called "the Indian problem." Sometimes the federal government led the way by making treaties or sending troops, but westerners also took matters into their own hands. They would burn villages and kill Cheyenne Indians wherever and whenever found. However, this action only led to war between the Indians and the whites.
Even with those current issues at hand, the English Colonist had no choice but to maintain a descent relationship with the Native Americans because if not all the English Colonist would parish from starvation. In return the English Colonist would supply the Native Americans with various types of weapons and ammo. As time went on the English Colonist population size doubled and tripled, and with the abundant English Colonist population size, a need for more and more land, which belonged to the Native Americans, grew at a fast rate. The trespassing of the English Colonist onto Native American soil set off what is known as the Indian Massacre of 1622 ("Europeans Settle Throughout North America", n.d.). This War caused the death of over 350 English Colonist, but in return the English Colonist murdered any Native American it
The settlers came in with the belief that they were settling a "new land," and failed to recognize or accept the Native Americans rights to their land, culture, and way of life. The white man believed that the Native Americans were not a part of the larger American society. The settlers viewed it as their right to settle on the land and push forward with development. The white man put a demand on the Federal government to push the Native Americans aside to make room for progress
During the time period 18900’s-1920’s the Progressive Movement was established. The progressives sought to abolish corruption in the city and the nation. They attempted to accomplish the deed by exposing and taking the responsibilities of political machines and administrators. Another fact was the high poverty rate, no place to live, and no food to consume. It got to a point when it too overwhelming and the progressives wanted to make a difference.
