The Missouri Compromise
The Louisiana Purchase
The Trail of Tears

  • U.S. History -

    Your first question probably wants you to refer to these sentences from the Declaration of Independence.

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, . . ."

    Unfortunately, the Native Americans weren't citizens and were considered less than human. Therefore, the Trail of Tears violates the Declaration's principles.

    What do you think about the other two?
