America Compared

  1. 1. America Compared<br />By Rachel Tunnell<br />
  2. 2. Chapter 2<br />The first theme I felt was War Against the Indians in the United States also with Argentina and a bit in Canada.<br />During the civil war many Americans moved west of the Mississippi River to the Pacific ocean and there they started ranches, mines, farms, towns, and cities<br />During this westward expansion they crossed over to the Native lands.<br />Almost 100,000 Indians east of the Mississippi were moved west abandoning their homelands in the eastern part of the United States open settlement. <br />United States government had thought the great plains was a desert and had established it as that so they were fine with the movement and to let the Indians inhabit the area.<br />1492 the great plains had a very little population <br />A group of Europeans wanted to expand their lands and take over the area the Indians had inhabited in Argentina as well as in the United States. <br /> Manitoba and Saskatchewan was taken over by the government and forced the Indians out of those lands in Canada as well as the same things that were happening to the Indians in the United States.<br />
  3. 3. Chapter 2<br />
  4. 4. Chapter 4<br />The main points of this chapter I felt were 1870-1920 United States was transformed to a more Urban society with a huge part of this from the  Migration<br />Migration was huge during this time and a the main causes were steamship travel and the opening of the national boarders<br />Another big cause for migration would be the need for industrial labor force and was a big part of the migration more so then for Religious or Political suppression<br />Immigrants became most of the population in the United states, Canada and Argentina<br />Immigration was not only in America there was over 5.5 million foreigners that went to Argentina  as well as 4.5 million who went to Canada<br />The effect of the huge migration to these areas had a bigger effect on Argentina because they had a smaller population and when immigrants came in, it made up most of their population<br />The United States had a more diverse group of Immigrants and the volume was at a higher rate.<br />Three fifths of the immigrants to the United States were from Europe coming from the early 19th century to World war 2<br />I think because the US had such a large Immigration population that a lot of people were really bothered with them taking jobs and moving in like they owned everything this cause for the most powerful anti-immigration movement after 1880<br />
  5. 5. Chapter 4<br />
  6. 6. Chapter 5 <br />Main ideas or themes in this chapter was the Imperialism<br />Many Americas have assumed that there was no period of American Imperialism. <br />American Imperialism similar in many ways despite the Yankee disclaimers to the ninetieth century.<br />Imperialisms usually have a sense of direction or motive and the American seems to be different in that sense and just had different characteristics that showed the imperialism<br />Imperialism was not always cast in such a demeanor it was once a practice or/ and a state of mind<br />Nations that would extend its control outside its own boarders and force its influence on another culture or just advise another nation of such things could be considered and when someone tells you what to do its natural to rebel against or at least dislike them (similar with National control of Cuba)<br />American imperial experience is compatible to that of other nations only briefly, somewhat incidentally, and then but half the time is how it is explained in the chapter. <br />European imperialism thoughts were to be negative especially with us having them give no colonial independence before World War 2. <br />

  8. 8. Chapter 8<br /> The main points in this Chapter were the widespread depression of the 1930s and its effects and roots<br /> The Depression that the American economy experiences at the end of the 1920s to the 1930s was part if a worldwide depression and had roots that went farther back then just that time periodGermany, Italy, and Japan, also experienced the great depression of the 1920 and 30s but used it more to their advantage <br /> In Britain it was known as the &quot;great Slump of the 1929-1933&quot; and British historian analyzed the causes and sketches of the time.  <br /> A record-breaking boom happened around the world from about 1850 for a little more then 10 years had been followed by the twenty-old years of economic depression and slump. <br /> Farmers dependent on the market and their crops especially the exported meant big trouble during this time<br /> Brazil became the depth of the Depression and was held back once the Industrial Revolution was in place<br /> The German leaders at the time wanted war and used the economy to make it possible<br /> America lacked the approach to force the positive sides of war until it was forced upon them and helped with the full employment, increased output, hectic economic expansion and achieved the same results as the Germans. <br />
  9. 9. Chapter 8<br />
  10. 10. Chapter 10 <br />Main points and theme in this Chapter is the Cold War in Europe and Asia<br /> Instead of bringing an end with World War 2 and having peace between nations a different kind of war emerged and brought a different kind of war, one that erupted into military conflict only sporadically bit loomed over the earth&apos;s people for merely 50 yrs  threatening their very survival; referring to the use of Nuclear explosives. <br />The Cold War was a presumably mortal antagonism, arising in the beginning of the World War 2, between two rigidly hostiles, one led by the Soviet Union, the other by the United States.  <br />The Russians were determined to protect their frontiers, and especially their border to the west, crossed so often and so bloodily in the dark course of their history.<br />The United States was rejected the idea of stabilizing the world by division into spheres of influence and insisted on an East European strategy. <br />The United States had the opportunity to choose an act differently especially given its own history but when it came down to it they chose the same path that was heavily traveled and ended up becoming an imperial power very much like its own Great Britain, a fate leaders of the Revolution had anxiously sought to avoid.<br />
