The condition and ulterior destiny of the Indian tribes within the limits of some of our States have become objects of much interest and importance. It has long been the policy of Government to introduce among them the arts of civilization, in the hope of gradually reclaiming them from a wandering life. This policy has, however, been coupled with another wholly incompatible with its success. Professing a desire to civilize and settle them, we have at the same time lost no opportunity to purchase their lands and thrust them farther into the wilderness. By this means they have not only been kept in a wandering state, but been led to look upon us as unjust and indifferent to their fate. Thus, though lavish in its expenditures upon the subject, Government has constantly defeated its own policy, and the Indians in general, receding farther and farther to the west, have retained their savage habits. A portion, however, of the Southern tribes, having mingled much with the whites and made some progress in the arts of civilized life, have lately attempted to erect an independent government within the limits of Georgia and Alabama. These States, claiming to be the only sovereigns within their territories, extended their laws over the Indians, which induced the latter to call upon the United States for protection.
Under these circumstances the question presented was whether the General Government had a right to sustain those people in their pretensions. The Constitution declares that "no new State shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other State" without the consent of its legislature. If the General Government is not permitted to tolerate the erection of a confederate State within the territory of one of the members of this Union against her consent, much less could it allow a foreign and independent government to establish itself there. Georgia became a…...

Indian War

...ultimately helped form our Nation into what it is today. One of these new leaders was President Andrew Jackson. Upon inauguration in 1829, Jackson wanted to settle the ongoing issue of the Indians and the land that they held within the states; as a result most of the energy and resources of his administration were focused on settling the dispute and moving on with the Nation. Within Jacksons first year in office he had plans to relocate the Indians to west of the Mississippi. With the relocation, Americans would be free to settle the land vacated by the Indians. Jackson’s stance on the issue is that if the Indians are not willing to adapt they had to be removed and relocated. Jackson wanted to preserve the Indian nation, however with expansion of the United States quickly approaching Indian Territory, the Indians needed to be moved instead of killed off. Ultimately this led to the Indian Removal Act of 1830. The act was written and in theory was supposed to represent a voluntary movement of the Indians and relocate them so that the white settlers could settle the farm the Indian’s fertile soil. But in reality it was to force Indian off their land and be push them further back into the interior of North America, even more then they had previously been sent. The Indian tribes as a whole were being forced off their land from which their fathers before them have lived on for generations. As Jackson saw it there were three options for the Native......

...The British Colonization in Indian Introduction East India Company, also known as The Honorable East India Company, British East India Company, was a joint-stock company established by the British. On Dec. 31th, 1600, the company was chartered by the Queen Elizabeth as the Governor and Company of Merchants of London trading into the East Indies (Chaudhuri, 2006). The charter in fact gave East India Company a monopoly right for twelve years. During its rule in India, the company not only owned economic monopoly but also assisted the British to realize military expansion. There will first be a discussion about how East India Company assisted British to realize its military expansion in India. Following that, there will be a discussion on how East India Company works as an economic tool of colonial expansion for Britain. Finally, there will be a discussion on how East India Company finally led to the backwardness of the country as well as disaster of the local people. Military expansion The British colonization in India is actually a military expansion, which not only struck some other foreign colonial powers but also led to the elimination of local rulers (Nicholas, 1992). As a result, the colonization in fact had made a preparation for the later centralization of authority. The French army was defeated in the Seven Years’ War in India. As a result, the French no longer dear to expand its power in India, which also prevented the development of its industrial revolution....

The Indian Removal Act of 1830

...THE INDIAN REMOVAL ACT OF 1830 Migdalia Tuero HIST101: American History to 1877 Professor Kathleen Davis February 13, 2014 There are several historical events and issues that have impacted the contemporary political development among American history. In the history of America one of these groups are the Native Americans. The white man throughout the South called for a removal of the Indian peoples. They wanted the Native Indians to be resettled to the west because their presence created a problem for the white man who needed additional land for settlement. “The status of Native American peoples posed an equally complex political problem” (Henretta, Edwards, Self 2012, 302). Therefore, Andrew Jackson posed the Indian Removal Act of 1830. This Act was passed on May 28, 1830 in order to authorize the president to give unsettled land in the west to the eastern state Indians as part of the removal from their land. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 removed the Native Americans from their rightful lands and it also is responsible for the deaths of 4000 Native American Indians. In 1830, the population in the states of Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and, Florida amongst other southern states, were growing rapidly, therefore it appeared that the “removal to the West seemed the only way to protect Indian peoples from alcoholic devastation and financial exploitation and to preserve the Indians’ culture” (Henretta et al. 2012, 302). However, this was not the case and...

Indian Caste

...and belief in religious dogmas: The members of the lower castes are illiterate. They are governed by narrow sectarian considerations, superstitions and blind beliefs. In the name of ‘Jati Dharma’ or ‘Kula Dharma’, they preserve their own caste interests and stick to their caste prejudices. Even at times they act against the interests of other castes. All these factors promote casteism. Consequences: On the one hand, Casteism serves to further the interest of a small number of individuals. On the other hand, it is proving harmful to the nation as a whole. Some of the major consequences of Casteism are as follows: 1. Hindrance in the development of nationalism: Casteism hinders the growth and development of nationalism. It has divided Indian Society into a large number of groups and subgroups. There is also division in the same caste. Very often there occurs both inter-caste tension and intra-caste tension which lead to national disintegration. 2. Hindrance to democracy: Casteism poses a serious obstacle in the functioning of democracy. Many of the professional politicians exploit Casteism and at election time ask the people to vote for them on caste considerations and they also succeed in their evil designs. Even illegitimate and immoral practices are resorted to in securing the interests of one’s own caste. By promoting narrow loyalties, Casteism has weakened the modernization of the polity. By retaining outmoded caste cohesion, Casteism has stood in the way of the......

Which marked the beginning of the end of the American Indians way of life. A life that was once peaceful and prosperous for the Sioux Indians was about to change drastically. Throughout history, the Sioux Indians, had to fight physical and emotional battles, in trying to retain their land and dignity. Following a time line, the American Indians were treated unjustly, as I will show starting with the Bozeman Trail and continuing on with The Great Sioux Reservation, Custer’s expedition, Battle of the Little Big Horn, Ghost Dancers, Wounded Knee, Citizenship Act of 1924, The Indian Reorganization Act, and The American Movement(AIM). The terrains were rough, being brutal and forcibly tough, especially for the new settlers who came west, when there was talk of gold. John Jacobs and his partner John...

Tattoo Removal

...S population have some sort of tattoo and almost 50% of that count will eventually want their ink memory removed. Laser tattoo removal techniques have been introduced to removed unwanted body designs, and can eliminate tattoos with minimal side effects. The process of removal via laser uses a high intensity beam to remove pigment within the tattoo. Black ink tattoos are said to be the easiest removed because the pigment absorbs all wavelengths; compared to color ink tattoos. Tattoo removal techniques must be tailored to each individual case in attempts to develop the proper procedure to avoid scarring. In the past, tattoos could be removed by a wide variety of methods but the scars that were left were often more unsightly than the tattoo itself. On the contrary patients who have previously undergone removal treatment; and who have tattoos that have not been effectively removed by other treatments or through home remedies may respond well to laser therapy providing the prior treatments did not result in excessive scarring. Depending on the size and color of the individual tattoo the number of removal treatments will vary. Treatment with the laser also varies depending on size, color, age, and the type of tattoo that is being removed. The color of the patient's skin, as well as the depth to which the tattoo pigment extends, will also affect the removal technique. When working in a relaxed environment employees tend to become comfortable. It is always a plus to feel like you......

Indian Removal

...Mississippi, Kentucky, and North Carolina. In 1830, President Jackson helped pass the “Indian Removal Act.” The act gave the president the power to negotiate treaties with the Indian tribes that lived east of the Mississippi. The removal was supposed to be peaceful, but some of the southeastern tribes resisted and Jackson forced them to move. Out of the Creeks, Chickasaws, Choctaws, and Cherokee it can be argued that the Cherokee had it the hardest. The Cherokee were tricked into signing the Treaty of New Echota. Led by Chief John Ross, the Cherokee signed a petition protesting the treaty, but the Supreme Court ignored them and ratified the treaty in 1836. The government gave the Cherokee two years to migrate, and by 1838 only 2,000 of 18,000 of the tribe members migrated. The government sent in about 7,000 troops that forced the Cherokee to move and march thousands of miles without giving them time to gather any of their belongings. This was known as the Trail of Tears which led to around 4,000 Cherokee people dying from cold, hunger, and disease. The state of Georgia passed five laws that restricted Cherokee authority over their land. One of the laws required all whites living in Cherokee Indian Territory to obtain a state license to live there. Samuel Worchester was a missionary who lived in Georgia, he was also postmaster of the Cherokee capitol New Echota, and he opposed Cherokee removal. He refused to obtain a state license for living there, and he was......

Mountaintop Removal in Appalachia

...Mountaintop Removal in Appalachia There is nothing more beautiful or peaceful as the Mountains of Appalachia. Whether you are in Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, or West Virginia, the mountains are breathtaking…until you see the bare, flattened remains of mountaintop removal. In 1990 the coal industry was given new life by the Clean Air Act, which restricted sulfur dioxide emissions believe to cause acid rain. This increased the demand for low sulfur coal which is abundant in central Appalachia. (McQuaid) Coal mining has always been one of the hardest, nastiest, unhealthiest and most dangerous jobs, but in some form vital. Mountaintop removal is controversial because it is destroying the mountains and polluting the streams in this area, but the other side would argue it is necessary for needed jobs and to keep electricity prices low. I am going to argue that the destruction caused by mountaintop removal by far outweighs the benefits. There are many reasons to be opposed to mountaintop removal. This type of coal removal has changed the shape, altitude, and ecology of large areas of the Appalachian coalfields. The mud and loose debris carried from the runoff through the hollow fills has been a factor in flooding and pollution. This type of mining (MTR) has been one cause for a decrease in mine related employment in Appalachia. One reason mountaintop removal is undesirable is the amount of change and damage it creates. There are six stages to mountaintop removal: clearing,...

...kumar Ph.d scholar in public administration, kurukshetra university Narender joon LL.M, Kurukshetra university kurukshetra INTRODUCTION: The most operational irritants to Centre State Relations springs in administrative sphere & they have led to most slanderous accusation against executive functionaries and decision makers. It is an area in which seemingly detailed provisions of the Constitution have not helped much. In the modern administrative age, administration plays a very significant role by way of enforcing the law of promoting socio-economic welfare of the people. The pattern of administrative relationship between the Centre and the State, therefore, assumes a great significance in developing country like India. The Indian Constitution contains more elaborate provisions regarding the administrative relation between the Centre and the States than are to be found in any of the three federation of the U.S.A., Canada and Australia. The Constitution lays down a flexible and permissive and not a rigid scheme of allocation of administrative responsibilities between the Centre and State. The scheme is so designed as to permit all kind of co-operative administrative arrangement between the two levels of Government. It is notable, however, that though legislative and judicial power is defined by the Constitution, this is not the case with the executive in our Constitution. Some Constitutional experts like Wade & Philips, try to define executive functions......

For the Senate election, Abraham Lincoln had the majority (4000 votes) vote of the electors of the first degree, but the distribution of electoral districts secured eight-vote majority in which Douglas was re-elected.
