What was the U.S. policy toward Native Americans in the mid to late 19th century?


Do not use outside sources.
Question 1- Source Analysis:  Complete the following source analysis questions by analyzing the “School Begins” cartoon and more specifically the scene with the Native American sitting on the other side of the “classroom.”
What is the historical context of that scene? In other words, what was the U.S. policy toward Native Americans in the mid to late 19th century? Did most Native Americans have the right to vote? Were they citizens? (Remember that the cartoon was created in 1899, so what happened afterwards cannot help us understand Dalrymple’s message.)
Why did Dalrymple include the image of the Native American “student” in his cartoon? How does the scene of the Native American “student” help Dalrymple convey his main message of the cartoon as a whole? Describe specifics symbols used to help support your analysis. (Hint: Dalrymple’s main message is mentioned briefly above and in greater detail in the lesson.)

Does Hawaiian cuisine, as discussed in the PBS article, go along with Freedman’s definition of American cuisine? Explain your answer.

Discuss the pros of lifetime appointment for Supreme Court justices.

o   Article III of the U.S. Constitution states “The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office.”  This article means that all federal judges including Supreme Court justices have life tenure. This means they will be appointed for life and only lose their job when then choose to resign, retire, or if they are impeached.
  Discuss the pros of lifetime appointment for Supreme Court justices.
  Discuss the cons of lifetime appointment for Supreme Court justices.
  Do you think Supreme Court judges should be appointed for life or should they have term limits, like officials in Congress and the President?  Explain your position.

Do you think Thi’s memoir speaks just to the experience of post-Vietnam War southeast Asian immigrants?

Write a 5 page (double spaced) responding to 2-3 of following prompts, with specific, detailed references to the graphic novel (i.e., must demonstrate that read the entire graphic novel, and thought critically about it), and placing the graphic novel within the historical context we discussed this semester:
Thi’s memoir weaves together several big themes—the complicated natures of family and especially parent-child relationships, experiences of immigration and racial/ethnic prejudice, and Vietnamese history (both personal and national). Do you think Thi’s memoir speaks just to the experience of post-Vietnam War southeast Asian immigrants? To 20th century immigrant families overall? All families with complicated interpersonal dynamics?
Thi’s relationship with her parents evolved as she learned more about their history, and their families’ history, in college and as an adult. How and why did their relationships change? Is this something you can relate to (seeing your parents in a new light as you get older, and/or learn more about their childhood)?
How did the fact that Thi experienced the aftermath of the Vietnam War, escaped to Malaysia, and immigrated to the United States as a young child effect how she experienced those events? What about how she remembered them? How was her parent’s memories of those events different, since they experienced them as adults?
Thi’s narrative (along with many graphic novels) jumps back and forth between different time periods (usually one historical timeline that moves through roughly chronologically, and then one or more later, more present, timelines). How do these time jumps impact the narrative and your reading of it? How does it enhance the narrative?
At one point in the graphic novel (page 40-41), Thi said she was looking for an origin story to “set everything right,” to better understand and contextualize her family. This is often a more difficult task for immigrants, if that origin lies in countries and /or people left behind. How did Thi try to “place her family in context”—historical, personal, geographic? How did the Vietnamese history Thi and her parents lived through impact their personal relationships? Their immigrant experience? And how did their immigrant experience impact Thi’s family relationships?
There are lots of different perspectives on the Vietnam War (and a century of colonialism that preceded it). For example, the United States’ anti-communist stance is often framed as “the good guys” and “bringing democracy” to Vietnam (see page 206-209). After the fall of South Vietnam, the communist Democratic Republic of Vietnam created a narrative about how “the people” had won the war, and how it was a national victory for all of Vietnam. Who were the “heroes” and “villains” in Vietnamese history, according to Thi’s memoir? Why? How did Thi’s memoir change how you think about the Vietnam War?
Pick a page or a couple-page-long scene that you found particularly powerful and discuss it in more detail. How do the illustrations, framing, dialogue, narration, and visual effects meld together to immerse you in the story and/or provoke a strong response from the reader? What did you learn from this scene? How did it make you feel? How did it help you grapple with the heavy subject of the graphic novel?

What specific actions did the U.S. military forces take in Mexico that prove many among the American forces were racist?

First, answer one (1) of the two questions from Part I with a 700 word, Use the textbook as your prime source of evidence and remember that YOU MUST CITE PAGE NUMBERS FROM THE MAIN COURSEBOOK
ONLY USE COURSE MATERIALS.
PART I –
1.)        The tension between the north and south played a defining role in shaping early American society.  For this question, discuss how the north and south diverged from from one another from the 1790s to the end of Reconstruction in 1877.  Discuss three events happened that caused this tension?  Who were the major figures in both the north and south, and what specifically did they argue?  I recommend that you discuss two of the following: the 1) political, 2) social, and 3) philosophical differences that emerged between the north and south, and explain why these societies ultimately proved so incompatible.
Next, answer Part II with a 750 word. Use A SHORT, OFFHAND KILLING AFFAIR as your prime source of evidence and YOU MUST CITE SPECIFIC PASSAGES WITH PAGE NUMBERS FROM THIS BOOK to earn a passing grade on this question. ONLY USE COURSE MATERIALS.
1.)       In A Short, Offhand, Killing Affair, author Paul Foos contends that the American military army and volunteer forces that invaded Mexico represent an accurate cross section of American society and American views on race and ethnicity during the 1840s.  Utilizing Foos, explain the state of race relations and racial attitudes in America during the U.S. Mexican War; what specific actions did the U.S. military forces take in Mexico that prove many among the American forces were racist?  Provide specific examples from the book that might be indicative of how Americans viewed the Mexican people, as well as other peoples they perceived as racially different.
Next, utilize your course book to detail a few instances of how the racial attitudes described by Foos during the 1840s set the tone for the way Americans continued to deal with people they perceived as different (African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, and Native Americans) from the end of the U.S. Mexican War to the end of Reconstruction in 1877.  You may also discuss, if you like, immigration’s impact on how America struggled over the issue of who should be included in American society and who should be excluded based on race and ethnicity.
