There was both the fear of Indians and the uprisings of Indians that brought this sad act into effect. Jackson wanted this act because in his words the act would prevent, “all possible danger of collision between authorities of General and State Governments on accounts of Indians.” First, the thought of Indians would strike the match of fear in the hearts of American settlers. Formerly, many Indians, and some presently, would scalp and kill Americans in their sleep. In this case, to the Americans, the boogie man was real, he was the entire race of Native Americans, and covers didn’t protect his victims. This fear prevented the United States of America from expanding due to the constant uprisings of the Native Americans in the East and he fear that the same thing would happen if they if they went West or continued to settle in the Western parts of the America of the 1830s.

They are distinct in that they focus on a particular characteristic, although they tell about the victims, as in sexism, racism, and homophobia. They tell little about the Offenders, and why they commit crimes. He says that in reality, an equal feeling of disloyalty, and that unfortunately accompanies every feeling of loyalty; one cannot exist without the other.
The French and Indian War, or the Seven Years’ war in Europe, had a negative impact on relations between the American colonies and Great Britain. The British forgot about the colonists’ role during the war. British troops in the colonies treated the colonists with cruelty, convincing the colonists that they would possibly be enslaved in the future by Britain. Although the colonists were original from Britain, they had different ideals and philosophies. After the war, Great Britain was in a large enough debt that it was able to destroy the English government.
One of the reasons as to why the British were able to conquer India was that they were already advanced in technology and they had more superior weapons and means of communication. They considered themselves more superior and higher in rank and thus they thought that they should conquer India. British control in India had both a positive and negative impact on India. On one hand it put the Indians on a standard living condition. But on the other hand it put them under the poverty line and destroyed their economy.
War is a state of conflict that two forces find themselves in – a competition with selfish endeavors. The definition of the “original condition of mankind” that Hobbes explains is “that during the time men live without a common power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called war; and such a war as is of every man against every man. For war consistent not in battle only, or the act of fighting, but in a tract of time, wherein the will to contend by battle is sufficiently known.” (Hobbes Ch. XII) Men are born equal and they have the right to take as much as they please, in order to keep their original condition. He proposes to solve the problem of war by creating laws, because of their need of survival above all.
They can see how he lived during the time he served and how awful he made it seem. The best way to have a convincing argument is to make the audience see through the eyes of the author, and to make them envision a mental image of what the author has seen. Gurganus tells how he was, “dressed in ugly clothes exactly like 4,000 others, to be called a number, to be stuck among men who will brag and scrap and fight but never admit to any terror, any need” (606). This flashback makes the war sound very unappealing and an experience that most of his readers would not like to experience themselves. Through this detailed description, Gurganus adds to his argument, making the war sound even more horrific.
The Native Americans were outraged by the white people trying to take their land that was set aside for them. The result was reservations wars broke out between the white people and Native Americans. As battles broke out, reformers wanted to put in place a new humane policy. The policy was to destroy native ways but save the Indians from themselves and make Indians into what white people thought they should be. After the reservation wars broke out and the conflict between the Native Americans and whites continued to rise, the new focus was the idea of civilization.
