This purchase doubles the geographic size of America. Jefferson knows this territory must be explored; even before the operation is finalized he assembles a plan to send an expedition to the area. The expedition will have many purposes: scientific observation, exploration, and the most important (in Jefferson’s mind) finding a water route to the Pacific Ocean. The excursion will also open commerce with the native Indian tribes in the area. Jefferson selects Lewis to lead this expedition.
They showed us how to farm, showed how to hunt effectively, introduced medicine, showed the Invaders where gold was, amongst other incredibly influential tasks. Zelinsky goes on to discredit the Indians as if they are non-factors. In the text we read, “…Had the European colonists found an utterly unpopulated continent, contemporary American life would not have differed in any major respect from its actual pattern.” In my opinion I do not understand how Zelinsky can just discredit the existence of the Indians.

These two videos show audiences a long history and policy about American Indians and how struggled they had been through in a native land. After I finished from these two videos, I can see many parallels between the struggles the Native American Tribes and my people encounter dealing with the U.S. Government “You can never be part of Indian. You are or you are not.
He realized that since it had no alphabet and was almost impossible to master without early exposure, the Navajo language had potential as an indecipherable code. After an demonstration to top commanders, he was told to begin a Navajo Code Talker test program. The unit was formed in 1942 when the first 29 Navajo Code Talkers were recruited by Johnston. Although the code was modified throughout the war, this first group was the one to start it. They are often referred to reverently as the "original 29".
Many southern farmers from neighboring states flocked to East Texas to plant cotton in 1815 and by 1823 nearly 3000 Americans were living in Eastern Texas. This is exactly what the new Mexican government wanted from the Americans, as there were many hostile native tribes near the Mexican - American border area. Between 1810 and 1820 Indian raiders made agricultural work, ranching, and travel dangerous in the western part of the province and throughout the Rio Grande country.Mexico, in an attempt to attract more settlers to the area, liberalized its immigration policies to permit immigrants
She called to other women and they gathered together as the strangers came closer. The men, led by Lewis put down their guns to try and show they were friendly.

Once the women had convinced their people that Lewis and his three men were friendly, the Shoshone chief Cameahwait had the village share their food and make a tepee for the "white visitors" to sleep in. The Shoshone's had never seen white people before this
Eventually, the stop at the Big Blue River and are unable to cross. While waiting for the river to go down, Virginia’s grandma passes and is buried in the wilderness; the party then crosses the river by making rafts for the wagons. Later on, they arrive at Fort Laramie and celebrate the Fourth of July. At Fort Bridger, the party learns about a route called the Hasting Cutoff, which was supposed to shorten the trip, and after much arguing James Reed and 73 others decide to take this way. The others decide to continue on the original trail.
Events will be directed as precise as possible. American marines had finally moved to Europe under General Barnett’s direction on June 14, 1917, but were scattered across France to do menial tasks until they were moved to the front on March, 1918. Marines sat in trenches for 53 days waiting for further orders and suffered 872 casualties from regular artillery fire, although there was no other activity until in May. German commander Ludendorff started an offensive strike that made the closest distance
Populations from the eastern United States hibernate in a different area, but despite extensive research involving the marking of thousands of monarchs to follow their route, their hibernation site remained a mystery until a few years ago. The marking, which consisted of attaching a numbered label to the forewing of the Monarch, provided important information. On the same day, a marked butterfly was found seventy-seven miles away from its original capture site (Pennesi, 2003). It was found that the marked butterflies were traveling towards Mexico, but the trace lines disappeared at the Texas state line. Estimates have been made that nearly fourteen million Danaus plexippus can be found hibernating in a region only four acres in area.
