APUSH November 2008

  A 

For Abby:

Peoples': How does  Howard Zinn support one of his primary contentions in this chapter, that Indian people were obstacles to Euro-American settlement and thus “could be dealt with by sheer force, except that sometimes the language of paternalism preceded the burning of villages” (People’s History, p.125). Create an annotated timeline of supporting evidence.

 

Voices: The Indian voices in these chapters were eloquent and their battles were fiercely fought. Nonetheless, they were no match for congressional laws and the United States Army. Identify 5 examples that clearly show how and why the Native Americans "were no match for the congressional laws and the United States Army".
