In the spring of 1832, Makataimeshekiakiak and his Sauk followers that included 700 soldiers rose up in defiance and rage to defend their ancestral land (Kerry, Hawdy and Alice 2012).

However, not hearing him is as un-American as anyone could get. Freedom of expression is what fundamentally sets this country apart from the rest even when many of the things that are said are hard to hear.

It deteriorates the purpose of well-being and charity and leaves a shallow scar on the government’s visage. Nevertheless, citizens do all they can to get rid of this evil by supporting the welfare organizations and going out of the way to support individual families.
The history of the black hawk war shows that during the period, gross Human rights injustices were carried out by both the Native American Indians and the Mormon militias fighting to protect themselves. The war had a big significance to American history because the federal government did not step him to stop the massacre of its citizens. During the 1865-1867 black hawk war in Utah, both the white settlers and Indian tribes committed gross human rights abuses.
The patronizing public is a brilliant critic. People can sense if there is some truth to a report on the news channel. Individuals have the capability to sort out a hoax detail from the actual bits of pieces. It is never unacceptable but the general public has to live with some distorted facts.
During the American Revolution the difference between Northern and Southern states were put on the backburner by their common interest in establishing a new nation and adopting a common Constitution. But the differences steadily widened between the economically prosperous northern states and the less privileged southern states that depended primarily on an agricultural economy and a social order based on slavery to support it.
In spite of this, there are dark areas where a certain amount of inequality still persists, especially in education and political sectors.
There were many inequalities in the education system of whites and blacks of America even till 1960s and 1970s. They do not exist any more, but the sensitivity to discrimination has not vanished and even the smallest notion of it is adequate to fuel the fire.
