Also President Hayes sent federal troops to put an end to the strikes and riots. In the other hand, the Pittsburgh militia sided with the strikers. There were many strikes occurring year after year but it seemed to be that there was little done to benefit the workers. For instance, in the Homestead strike of 1892, the most powerful corporation, Carnegie Steel Company, went against the strongest trade unions. The strike of 1889 won the steelworkers a favorable three year contract and Carnegie wanted to break the union.
Guatemala's government was the main reason why this genocide took place, they were to selfish to share their land. One thing I found hard to believe, is that this Genocide is still continuing today. It's clearly not as large as it use to be, but as a small little war, it is still continuing. I also learned that when they killed 626 villages this caused a horrific decrease in people. This Genocide killed 200,000 orphans and 80,000 widows.
This situation was very quickly reversed when the United Nations landed in North Korea and cut off their supply lines, which caused the North Korean armies to flee back north. This ‘see-saw fighting’ and stalemate situation clearly prolonged the war, as a lot of time was wasted doing pretty much nothing. Another reason that the war lasted for so long was because no one could come to an agreement about armistice. The negotiations at Kaesong in the summer of 1951 dragged on for about one-and-a-half to two years, and this was
FRQ: The Indian Removal Act of 1830 The year is 1838; more than six hundred wagons packed full with over100,000 Cherokee Indians have been hauled out west to the Oklahoma territory; the old, the sick, the children, and the mothers, freezing and dying in the cold October storms. They have left behind not only their home in Georgia and all that is dear to them in current time, but also the sacred lands of their cherished ancestors. All of this has come about by the lamentable actions of one man. Our President, Andrew Jackson, has failed to adhere to moral standards and is entirely unjustified in his passing of the Indian Removal Act of 1830. In doing so he has violated all political and humanitarian rights of these native inhabitants of America, who have thrived and existed in these mountains and prairies long before us colonists even knew of its existence.
The removal of Native Americans from their land in the 1830’s was a genocide because they were forced to walk from Georgia to Oklahoma, which caused thousands of them to die in the process. To white settlers, Native Americans seemed to be unfamiliar, people who occupied land that they wanted and believed they deserved. White settlers wanted the land so people could live there and they had resources that they needed such as fertile land and gold. The Native Americans lived on these lands for as long as they have existed, but that didn’t stop white settlers from trying to take it away from them. Andrew Jackson was a major figure against the Native Americans and was the creator for the genocide that occured .He believed that the land was white settlers
The great Peshtigo Fire of 1871 impacted not only the people who resided in the damaged area from the fire, but also people all around the United States changing the U.S. forever and benefiting us in the long run while it being a bad thing for us in the short time. The Peshtigo Fire impacted both the people who were directly affected by the blaze, including Peshtigans, and indirectly affected by the blaze, like people who lived nowhere close to the site of the fire. For example, Indiana University says the fire “not only burnt people’s lives in the area of the fire, but even ruined people’s lives that lived on the other side of the country.” This demonstrates the magnitude of the effects of the Peshtigo Fire, showing how it even influenced people who had nothing to do with the fire. This also demonstrates how people, who “live on the other side of the country,” can be affected and changed because of the aftershocks of such a big natural disaster. Another example, by Minnesota Public Radio, shows how the people who lived and stayed in the area of the fire were influenced too.
I could have had many more wives but I was content with what I had. She is a great cook and could clean kills with skill and speed. The whites killed many of our buffalo for reasons no man can justify. I once stumbled across a plain close to our sacred hunting grounds where many buffalo where slaughtered only for their tongues and hides while the rest was left to rot in the sun. It was a sad day for the Sioux with many tears shed and many prayers sent.
Diary Entry 2: I am a white and I am on my way right now to find some gold my chances are slim and I know it but I am very frightened that the natives will capture me, the time period 1840-1860,, which are probably low, indicate that 362 emigrants were killed by Indians and 426 Indians were killed by emigrants. This makes me very nervous knowing that natives in the past have actually killed whites. On my way I found that there were many rotten animals which I believe was buffalo there was sixty million buffalos before the whites came and took land. Food was scares and we have to stop early just to start a fire; it took two or three bushels of chips to heat a meal because chips burned so rapidly I was very sad that we could not move on faster.

Jared Diamond explains in his article “Easter’s End” what happens to societies when they are not sustainable: even though Polynesian colonists inhabited Easter Island around 1,600 years ago they still managed to destroy nearly all of the island’s forests, on which they depended for their livelihood. As a result, they could not maintain the conditions that would sustain their society, and the civilization disappeared. If this could happen 1,600 years ago before technology, nowadays it is likely to happen twice as fast. If we want to avoid a collapse like that of Easter Island, we need to be a more sustainable society. The way we live our lives today, the way our products are manufactured and transported, the energy systems we use, and
The lasting effects of these actions are that the Nez Perce people have been forced to annexation to lands that were foreign to our people and they were also barren lands located on Oklahoma. Over the last one hundred and fifty years, we have been living in impoverished reservations and the lasting effects of alcoholism and unemployment have plagued the Nez Perce. Also other factors that have affected the ethnicity of the Nez Perce are the fusion process. Throughout the years many people that were born on the reservations had to leave to seek a decent education and to find work that will enable a person to support their family.Due to marrying outside of our own culture over the generations, we have slowly begun to lose our cultural and ethnical identity. In my own family, my grandfathers mother was Full blooded Nez Perce, his father was a U.S Marshall that was of European decent.
