Historical Idea: The Japanese were particularly brutal because they saw the Chinese as an inferior race.
The Battle of Gettysburg was one of the most famous battles of the Civil War. The battle was fought from July 1 to July 3 near Gettysburg. The famous battle was between Robert Lee and his Northern Virginia Army and George Meade and the North's Army of the Potomac, The Union. The original leader of the Army of the Potomac was General Joseph Hooker, but President Lincoln relieved Hooker of his duties and named Meade the new General of the Army. Many soldiers died from both sides during this battle and that is the reason it is known as one of the bloodiest battles. The Battle of Gettysburg was General Robert Lee's second attempt at invading the North and there was a definite aftermath to this battle.
Wilson reports that one of the most exceedingly awful abominations professedly committed against the African American soldiers happened at Fort Pillow, Tennessee on April 12, 1864, when the Confederate Army unpredictably murdered approximately three hundred black fighters. The fort, stormed by General Nathan Bedford Forrest's troops, had surrendered. General Nathan Bedford Forrest would later become an organizer of the Ku Klux Klan The Union Army claimed that the killing of the black soldiers was a massacre; yet, the Confederacy denied this claim, stating that the soldiers died in the ﬁghting before the surrender. This massacre failed to weaken the courage of the black soldiers, but rather raised their determination and many black soldiers
On November 18, 1978, in the South American country, Guyana, 918 people died from drinking cyanide poisoning. The Jonestown Massacre, led by Jim Jones, convinced men, women, and children of all ages to commit suicide or be killed in days to come by the U.S. government. This event would become known as the most deadly, non-natural disaster in U.S. history, before September 11, 2001.
The people of Jonestown were apart of a subculture because this group of people were shut out from the rest of the world, other communities, and people. They followed a person named Jim Jones. That was their leader. They looked up to him and did as he said they did not question him.
For all the disputes that exist within America regarding how to understand the Civil War, the majority of citizens will agree that the conflict was decidedly tragic. The combatants who perished fighting against their former countrymen are mourned, as America's most destructive internal conflict is remembered as a period of needless bloodshed. Nevertheless, this notion represents one final misconception about the war, which obscures its immense benefit to the country and its people. Admittedly, it is not difficult to understand why the conflict is viewed as a tragedy – there can never be anything inherently positive about the demise of six hundred thousand people. However, as horrible as those five years of battle were, the outcome was the abolishment
The Shejajya massacre was a massacre of innocent civilians. Amy Goodman from Democracy Now! said “His confidential sources within the IDF, the Israeli Defense Forces, reportedly informed him that the real reason for the recent IDF Shejaiya massacre was that IDF soldiers were deliberately targeting civilians as punishment and retribution for the deaths of fellow soldiers in their units.” (Democracy Now!, 2014) This shows how the massacre only involved innocent civilians who did not deserve to be harmed in any way. They were clearly just treated as what Nietszche would call the “slave class”. Civilians were not protected by anyone and they spent and are still spending a lot of time looking for their friends and family. Many citizens were separated

We placed the heads on a pallet and sent them back to the two that lived to Fort Ambercon. The eyes, tongues, fingers, we put in baskets; sent them down the Asheulot to the Cherokee. Soon after, the Cherokee broke their treaty with the French. That's how we justified it. We were heroes."(There is no fort wilderness, fort Charles is actually a Port Royal, Kingston, Jamaica, Fort Ambercon never existed, and the Asheulot River is in New Hampshire. The real history is that the Indians began attacking British settlements in Blue Ridge 1760 which was in Virginia and Carolina which began the siege of Fort Loudoun, this ended in a British massacre when the British did not keep an agreement, and the South Carolina militia responded with a campaign which Francis Marion participated in, and they mainly destroyed Indian villages.)
Thomas Holmes was the best cat that ever lived; however, his life was cut short and finally ended with the deadly point of piercing needles and sharp dissecting scissors. Little Tommy, as only his closest friends knew him as, was first introduced into the world on the sidewalk of a busy New York street. As the smallest kitten in his litter, Tommy was bullied by his bigger siblings and was never appropriately fed.

He slowly drifted away from this world and ventured to the home he resides in now, but it wasn’t his time. With the power from the cat gods, he awoke on the table of a vet’s office.
The grievous tragedy that was the Lincoln’s death was the first of many presidents to meet their doom by assassination. This act of calamity was the first of many as James Garfield, William McKinley and John F. Kennedy were all assassinated after Lincoln’s assassination. Also this novel nosedives into the controversial subject of the civil war and race, which is a major issue in America. This novel shows the President who ended slavery with the Emancipation Proclamation die at the hands of a racist which can relate to Kennedy who fought for civil rights and died the same way via assassination. Both fought the infinite beast that is racism and tried to built a better tomorrow. Furthermore, some still believe in the ideology that has lead to
Another circumstance leading to massacre was the warring factions of the Guise and the Huguenot leaders. Under the reign of Henry II rival noble factions were already buoying for power and control. This was enlarged under the weak rule of Francis II and Charles IX. The Guise controlled Paris; they were also backed by Rome and Spain. It was the Guise who initiated the religious wars with the Massacre at Vassy in 1562. After the murder of the duke of Guise in 1563 the religious wars saw retaliation lead to more retaliation, until both Catholics and Huguenots had ample reasons to continue the fighting as a blood feud. Catherine had ample reason to distrust both the powerful Guise and Huguenot factions, especially after Condè and Coligny attempted

When it comes to the recommendation of this book, I believe that I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know about the history of the fall of Yugoslavia. It is a brilliant account of the issues that were going on in the late 1980s to the mid-1990s. Therefore, I believe that this is a good book. Overall, I believe that the authors have given a useful summary of the events that were taking place. However, the events that I believed that were not really included in the book were the three points that I have listed. One major point that I believe that the authors did not really wrote about too much is the Srebrenica massacre. For Bosnia’s concern, this was a turning point in the history of the country. In conclusion, the authors only
The Bloody Sunday massacre unfolded on the 22nd January 1905. An unarmed, peaceful march in St. Petersburg, Russia to the Winter Palace was organized by Father Gapon. Approximately 200,000 workers gathered with pictures of their ‘Little Father’ the Tsar, singing the anthem God Save the Tsar all the way along. The problem that it was illegal to hold any demonstration against the Tsar’s authority had threatened the government to believe that it would became a riot and thus, ordered the Imperial Guard to stop and dismiss the protesters. As there were too many protesters that the limited soldiers could not control over, some started gunning down the demonstrators even if no physical threat was shown. Whether the soldiers was given an order to fire
