The documents that support my thesis are; A, B, E and G. In Document A Chief Santana is talking about how when he goes to the river he sees soldiers cutting down timber and killing buffalo. Document B describes how Colonel Chivington attacked a tribe of friendly Indians killing most of them very brutally. Document E is the…

This act stated that the Native Americans had to relocate so that the white settlers could move into their territory. Some tribes were removed by force as well. In addition to the Indian Removal Act, Jackson also sent a military army to force certain tribes out, and the Native Americans had to endure a long…

Jackson’s push to Westward Expansion was on the Trail of Tears. The Trail of Tears was
Jackson’s Indian removal policy to push the Cherokee nation east of the Mississippi River to
present day Oklahoma. James K. Polk and Sam Houston was both apart of the same conflict on
the Mexican -…

“As William Livingstone said: harder work, longer hours, less pay and no security: ‘New machinery is constantly displacing the men…The longer days came in soon after the strike. Sunday work was a later development. Under the twelve hour day men have no time to themselves. The work is hard and hot…The heat is…
