The gold rush of the 1850s symbolized Americas quest towards westward movement, challenges of life on the frontier, and the impact it had on Californias growth. As a result, the gold rush strongly influenced the shaping of American History. Many people that had heard of the gold rush in the 1850s moved right out there as fast as they could to get their hands on that gold. Once the people got out there they wouldnt return back to the east. As a result, the gold rush strongly influenced the shaping of American History. James W. Marshalls finding of gold on January 24, 1848 led to the expansion of the West Coast and the beginning of a new state, California. Marshall discovered gold in a mill on ...

The Mexicanamerican War - 346 words
The war with Mexico had fundamentally broken out because of Americas rapid expansion and confidence due to their great size and wealth. Also, because Mexico had owed money to America, many people thought that they could obtain the money forcefully. Furthermore, Mexico had never fully recognized Texas independance and to maintane their pride, broke off diplomatic relations when the US annexed the republic. President Polk ordered General Zachary Taylor into Texas to defend the border which at the time was in dispute. In July, 1845, Taylor reached the Nuccess River with about 1500 toops and crossed into the disputed area. He did not go all the way to the Rio Grande to avoid provoking the Mexica ...

Atomic Bomb - 982 words
The use of the atomic bombs on Japan was necessary for the revenge of the Americans. These bombs took years to make due to a problematic equation. The impact of the bombs killed hundreds of thousands of people and the radiation is still killing people today. People today still wonder why the bombs were dropped. If these bombs werent dropped on the Japanese the history of the world would have been changed forever. The Atomic bomb took 6 years to develop (1939-1945) for scientists to work on a equation to make the U-235 into a bomb. The most complicated process in this was trying to produce enough uranium to sustain a chain reaction. The bombs used on the cities cost about $2 billion to develo ...

Ice Age Extinctions Of The Megafauna - 1,630 words
... vironments than do smaller animals. Larger animals are safer from predators than small animals are, but it is also harder for them to sustain in trying conditions. Many of the larger animals such as mammoths and bison travel in herds, and that, along with their large size, protects them from predators. However, when the predator is Mother Nature, there is virtually no defense. For modern day elephants, drought is the biggest concern. It can take twenty percent of a herd every year, but the elephants continue to exist (Ward, 1997). It would have been harder though, for the mammoths and mastodons to survive a drought. Because of their size and weight, the Ice Age Proboscidea had longer ges ...

The American Indian Genocide - 1,415 words
Textbooks and movies are still hiding the genocide of Native American Indian cultures, which began five centuries ago. There were many friendly and close relationships between early immigrant settlers and native peoples, but these were not the main current in their relations. U.S. history is destroyed by acts of genocide against native people, made worse by the deadly impact of new diseases spread by contact between new settlers and native Americans. Many aggressive attempts were made to reform the Indian peoples according to European cultural models, whether under threat of death or, later, through separation to government boarding schools. Government policies guided the destruction and con ...

Georgia Totto O'Keeffe was born in the year on November 15, 1887. She was one of seven children. O'Keeffe's aunt was mostly responsible for raising her. O'Keeffe did not care much for her aunt though; she once referred to her as, "the headache of my life." She did, however, have some respect for her aunt's strict and self disciplined character. O'Keeffe was given her own room and less responsibility. The younger sisters had to do more chores and share close living conditions. A younger sister stated that O'Keeffe always wanted things her way, and if she didn't get them her way, "she'd raise the devil."

Architecture, the practice of building design and its resulting products; customary usage refers only to those designs and structures that are culturally significant. Architecture is to building as literature is to the printed word. Vitruvius, a 1st-century BC Roman, wrote encyclopedically about architecture, and the English poet Sir Henry Wotton was quoting him in his charmingly phrased dictum: "Well building hath three conditions: Commoditie, Firmenes, and Delight." More prosaically, one would say today that architecture must satisfy its intended uses, must be technically sound, and must convey aesthetic meaning. But the best buildings are often so well constructed that they outlast their ...

Student activism was at an all time high during his presidency and led to draft resistance and campus protest. While Johnson reacted to these tensions with a sense of betrayal, Nixon responded with the covert determinism that characterized his style. He initiated subversive efforts against left wing organizations, and enlisted the aid of the FBI and CIA to infiltrate such organizations. He organized conservative counter-demonstrations. And, he continued to use the tensions in America to his political advantage by mobilizing the disaffected white middle Americans. He catered to the right by ve ...

Manifest Destiny reflected the desire to grow and expand quickly. It also demonstrated the idealistic vision of social perfection that fueled so much of the reform energy of the time. All this rested on the idea that America was destined-by god and by history- to expand its boundaries over a vast area. The idea of Manifest Destiny had spread throughout the nation in the 1840's. It was heavily publicized by the new "penny express" which made newspapers available to a far greater proportion of the population than ever before. Some supporters of Manifest Destiny had relatively limited territorial goals; others envisioned a vast new "empire of liberty" that would include Canada, Mexico, Caribbea ...
