Will Rogers Will Rogers was a cowboy that did rope tricks. He was loved by the crowds that watched him. “Onto the stage ambled a friendly-faced, tousled-haired man wearing a cowboy getup and carrying a collection of lassos in his hand. He smiled at the audience, then threw out one of the ropes, twirling it in a circle in preparation for one of the complicated rope tricks he was hired to perform. But as he went into the trick, he miscalculated the size of the small stage, and the rope whacked int

Book Summary/Contents Andrew Jackson, in the author’s words, was mild, polite, polished, benevolent, and democratic. It would not be in anyone’s favor to question the validity of the his words, but to understand them with unrestrained faith in those words will help to insure complete insight into the book. Moreover, this book stresses the immortal fact that Jackson’s private life had as much irony and agony as his political/outside life did. With those factors understood, Jackson’s life and t

The American Indian History in the Eastern part of the country is alwa
The American Indian History in the Eastern part of the country is always associated with the Cherokee Indian nation. The Cherokee's were by far the largest and most advanced of the tribes when Europeans first arrived and came in contact with Native Americans. There are too many tribes to go over background on every one of them, so I'm going to focus on the Cherokee's since many of their ways and customs are so similar to all the other tribes in the East. When Europeans first arrived in North Am

Chisholm Trail When the railroads moved west to the Great Plains, the Cattle Boom began. Southern Texas became a major ranching area with the raising of longhorn cattle from Mexico. Cattle was branded by the rawhides who guarded them on horseback on the ranges. Before the Civil War, small herds of Texas cattle were driven by the cowboys to New Orleans, some as far west as California, and some to the north over the Shawnee Trail. This trail passed through Dallas and near the Indian Territory,

They were brave and listened to the government, but they recieved unproductive land and lost their tribal land. The white settlers were already emigrating to the Union, or America. The East coast was burdened with new settlers and becoming vastly populated. President Andrew Jackson and the government had to find a way to move people to the West to make room.

As a young child I had a most favorite place. It was a tree fort that I built with my big brother on our wooded property up north near a cedar swamp. Back in those days I would play all sorts of games there with friends that I would bring up to our cabin. Behind the island there is a swamp with little islands that we give nicknames to. It is a great place to play and forget schoolwork. The tree fort is not big. It is about 10 feet off the ground. That was high then but not any more. It is about

Will Rogers was taught be a freed slave how to use a lasso as a tool to work Texas Longhorn cattle on the family ranch. When he grew older, Will Rogers' roping skills developed so good that he was listed in the Guinness Book of Records for throwing three lassos at once.

Cold Mountain Charles Frazier uses reverse psychology as a great advantage in his very well known novel, Cold Mountain, a Civil War story with blood on its bayonets and romance in its gentle soul. The author takes some creative risks by reshaping the true battle tales of the Civil War into an epic story that accumulates power and purpose with each turn of the page. The story is set around the middle of the Civil War, perhaps somewhere around 1864, the later and more depressed years at that. Thes

INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION On May 26, 1830, the Indian Removal Act of 1830 was passed by the Twenty-First Congress of the United states of America. After four months of strong debate, Andrew Jackson signed the bill into law. Land greed was a big reason for the federal government's position on Indian removal. This desire for Indian lands was also abetted by the Indian hating mentallity that was peculiar to some American frontiersman. This period of forcible removal first started with the Cherokee Indians in th

Authors Point of View
Author’s Point of View In the book The Nation Takes Shape, by Marcus Cunliffe, the author has one main point of view, that he expands on throughout the entire novel. That point of view concerns the first half-century of life under the newly formed government, under the constitution. He talks about the ways America began to achieve its own identity in the world in those years. He shows us how colonials began to become Americans, how a new nation found itself. He also shows an American character

Andrew Jackson thought of himself as a man of the people. Yet, at the time of his election at the age of 61, however, Jackson was hardly one of the common man.

Red Eyes Because of the textbooks that the students are reading in school, the students are basically started at -10 instead of starting at 0. A lot of books sit on shelves, instead of being read. Another thing is that a lot of the information that is written sometimes goes back to far and then some of the information doesn't go back enough and then the students miss a lot of the information that is needed. Then another problem with the textbooks is that they are using the wrong use of words. T

When people associate racial background with America, most people automatically think of European ancestry. This misunderstanding of what America is, causes many problems in the country. The lack of recognition of various racial backgrounds and minority groups has been all too common, since the very beginning when America was thought of as a New World. The native people of the land were treated like they were foreigners and eventually stripped of their own land. When the country started to deve

The tragedy of the Cherokee nation has haunted American consciences since the arrival of Andrew Jackson’s Presidency in March of 1829. The events that had transpired after the implementation of his Indian policy are indeed heinous and continually pose questions of morality for all generations. Ancient Native American tribes were forced from their ancestral homes in an effort to increase the aggressive expansionism of white settlers during the early years of the United States.
