Friday, August 31, 2007 History 313 Talking points today: 1. Problems with Spain and Native America 2. Madison and the Constitution - The opening essays in Merrill/Patterson (Perkins, Williams, Gradner) should be paid special attention as they may appear on the midterm. - Question: Why was there a conviction on the part of all American leaders that the articles of Confederation were not strong enough for foreign affairs and needed to be strengthened? Problems with Spain and Native America - Friction began immediately after the revolution with Native Americans. White settlers had begun moving in. The American government acted arrogant by claiming Native American by conquest, not purchase. Native Americans understood the advance of America meant the loss of their lands, and therefore the basic underlying cause of their resistance was the desire to defend these lands. - The American government blamed the British and Spanish, not their own land hunger, for the resistance. The British and Spanish were not responsible, but took advantage of this attitude. The British used their forts on the Great Lakes to supply Native America and encourage their resistance. - America demanded that the British disband their forts, but the British tied this to outstanding American debts to British merchants and kept their forts. - Congress could do nothing about the British. Had they been able to move military to the Ohio River it would have balanced power, but Congress could not make this decision. They only had one regiment and could not get the funds to raise another so settlers had to defend themselves.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
