For instance, they used indirect methods such as writing imaginative literature and publications on slavery. The use of publication campaign brought together several women from various regions on board where they actively took part in drafting anti-slave poems and literature. Their main aim of publishing the anti-slave poems was to ensure that there was wide readership across the globe. It is worth noting that women who had been captured as slaves at that time took part in writing down poems which discussed their lives in slavery. These poems were very influential. They also wore garments that had writings which were intended to show support for the abolition process. Lastly, they also organized and took part in the sugar boycotts because their men had been taken as slaves in the sugar plantations. The similarity that existed between the two movements was that they were formed together as a result of the sufferings they encountered from the oppression. The difference, on the other hand, was that the abolitionist movement was being led by the men while the women movement was lead by the women.

3. The Indian removal happened because the then president, Andrew Jackson seems he was against the acculturation that had been proposed by his predecessor. His predecessor George Washington was of the idea that the American Indian tribes from the South East be encouraged to learn the European style of economic practices as well as learns to learn and read the English. In this regard, they were to remain in the East of Mississippi. However, when Andrew Jackson assumed office he sought to remove these Indians from their lands through political and military actions. The Indian removal was an act that was meant to have the land that the Indians occupied earlier be occupied by the Americans living in the southern states. The persons that this act affected most were the American Indian tribes from the South East. This is because they were displaced from their lands and forced to go and occupy lands in the west of Mississippi. The states that benefited directly from the removal of Indians from the South were the southern states. There was little opposition to the expulsion of the Indians from South because they were few in number and also because they had been given a promise that they would have their own laws without interference from the government when they relocate to the west. This was not different from the defeated pan-Indian movement of Tecumseh because both leaders had the motive of defending the unity of their own tribes. Andrew Jackson was able to generate a broad base of support in regards to Indian removal by having the southern states speed up the process by posing the argument that there was no deal between Georgian and the federal government. This made the southern states argue that they could pass the laws on their own. Andrew Jackson was able to initiate his removal plans

    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.
