Assimilation of Native Americans
Assimilation is a big impact on native Americans. They are being forced to move to west of the Mississippi river. the white Americans want to move there also, so the government is making the native americans sign treaties to live on reservations. the white americans are complaining to the federal government that the native americans are attacking them on the reservations(indian land). conflicts between the federal government, white americans, and the native americans are known as indian wars. everyone who lives on the reservations learn to move on and understand that the only way to end the conlift is to except it is their way of life now. as a resolution, the united states is offering peace, cash payments and supplies. Due to the civil war some of those promises never can come true and will lead to frustration in many places.
Populism, is it a big issue? To a lot of people such as farmers and other citizens populism has become the most talked about topic. The idea of unlimited silver coinage has become a popular idea among these people. It is being said that the Republican and Democratic Parties favor industries and banks over the farmers who have been struggling to keep their homes stable. No one knows of this new populist group is going to achieve anything. Are they powerful enough to change anything? It seems one of the least appealing ideas of populism would be an eight hour work day. It is safe to say Urban voters are anything but supportive of this new idea. The idea did not pass. In the end it seems the populist party was a waste of precious time, seeing as after the voting showed the winning of McKinley, the party declined.
Letters to editor
Settling here has been anything but settling. We have been struggling with our farms and paying for homes. Some of our crops are failing to grow here and there is worry all around debating wether we made the correct decision moving to this new land. It seems living here will be harder to adjust than we have originally thought and we ask for aid from other settlements to share some of their success with us. It can't only be us that are struggling there must be others and we demand help from the government. They must step in and do something about these conditions.
I am writing to you on an article you mentioned containing populism. We have had trouble as well with the currency we are supposed to be using. We do not have enough money and many of us are loosing our homes due to the fact we cannot pay for them. It was mentioned that with silver and paper currency we will be able to increase the value of the money we have and most of us agree it would help us. Others say that it will only complicate things, but as a father I have a family to provide for and with little money I earn I find it harder and harder to accomplish.
