Assignment #1:
Andrew Jackson presents African Americans are called to Defend New Orleans, a short historical event that led to the recruitment of African Americans into the U.S Military. In 1814 the military decided to open its doors to African Americans when it needed the service of more people, since African Americans were now declared “American.” Because they are nowAmerican, African Americans were told that they were called to defend our, their country. In return for their services the government had a nice and “mild” equitable plan. Brothers, sons, and fathers where called to the scene in order to rally more soldiers. Soon the military convinced the soldiers that their hometown had not wanted to even know of their existence.

Assignment #2:
A Shawnee leader, Tecumesh wrote a short anecdote on his beliefs respecting the land, which his forefathers had once owned. The land was taken away from Tecumesh, from foreigners who destroyed the beauty of nature that once stood. In 1795, Governor Harrison came up with a treaty to take land away from the Indians. However, Tecumesh wanted to askthe governor to tear up that treaty, since he did not want to give away his land. He was sure that the only thing that the governor wanted to do is take away the land even though he said his purpose was to “unite” the tribes. Even though he supposedly had such a strong desire to “unite” the Indians he never assisted any of the peace councils. Tecumesh was smart enough to detect this evil plotagainst him, for the land early enough to do something about it. This land in America is well known by the Indians who once stepped foot on this soil. These people knew of the wars against tribes that used to fight for their peace of land, chiefs died and many other people died. For this reason Tecumesh decided it was unsafe to sell land to any other Americans. Just the way land is land, water is waterand one mostly never sees anyone buying an ocean instead of land. For this very reason I think that the chief has done a great job operating this mission, and most importantly for protecting his land.
