The comparison between Christopher Columbus and Lewis and Clark, is that these were explores sent out to find new land for their country. They both had good intentions as they set off. They went where no man had gone before (no European man). But the big difference is that Christopher took advantage of these strange people and killed thousands, just to save his self when he promised a land of gold. In the beginning, Christopher Columbus was a great explorer. He brought us North America and gave us a new start. The problem is that he did it the wrong way; the people that were originally living there were nearly wiped out from the killings by Columbus, or diseases that he brought with from Europe. In the end Columbus became crazy with power. In the beginning Lewis and Clark were seeking new land to inhabit; in the end they found the land without all the killings. This is the reason why they cannot be the same as Christopher Columbus.
Dominic Varela Pr.2 In what ways did the European invasion alter the lives of the Indians of eastern North America? The European invasion altered the lives of the Indians of eastern North America because they took their food, made them change their customs, made them follow European ways, gave them diseases, and ultimately nearly killed them. The Indians had their lives changed when the Europeans showed up, and they were treated inhumanely by the Europeans. When the Europeans showed up in Indian Territory, they began taking part of their land. At first it wasn’t much, they only relocated or just lived near them. Then it started getting worse when they started taking the land and giving them small pieces of land that were unable to have people living in them. The Indians starting losing their lives once they started losing their sacred grounds. The food was becoming scarce when the Europeans showed up and started taking the food that they had. With little food, meant more lives lost. Another thing is that they were putting the Native Americans into war and slavery. The Natives had no choice, for they helped the Europeans to survive, since most of them were in slavery and could do nothing about it. In the End, the Europeans almost made the Native Americans instinct. They came to push them away from their land, then they took their food, and then they made them leave all together. If the Europeans never came, the Indians would have still been strong and dominant.
