They were not happy for marrying the woman though and tried to separate them but failed and John, with Huldah, ran away to the coast. There they were greeted by Yellow Feather, the chief of the Indian sachem, when John saved one of the village children from death on his way to Plymouth before. John and Huldah were granted shelter and they left to settle in with Roger Williams. As time went on, the tension between the Englishmen and the Indians was at its peak.

Katniss’ father was killed in a mining accident and being the older sibling, she took it upon herself to take on the father role for her family (Schneider). Katniss’ father died while she was at the young age of 11 (Collins 5), and as a young woman she often did things that her father did for her, her mother, and her younger sister. Although this father role came so easily for Katniss, it was not her decision at first. Because her mother stopped taking care of her and her sister, Katniss had no other choice, but to take on the role of the “caretaker” of their family. She was the provider for her family, just as any father would be for his own family.
The Western United States, Texas, and the northern territories of the Mexican Empire served as an area of expansionist controversy between 1820 and 1860. Expansionism of antebellum America was rooted in a number of current disputes casing it to evolve into a major political issue. Although slavery was a cause of expansion, it was just as important as other; spread of American institutions, Manifest Destiny, and the protection and prosperity of the nation were equally important. Slavery in itself as a cause was rooted in greater causes. The spread of American institutions was a major cause of western expansion in the United States.
The West Needs the Government In the 1860s Americans began to inhabit the land west of the Mississippi river on the promise of free land and the hope to improve their economic situations. Large investments began to pour into the west based on the economic prospects one of these investments includes the large projects by railway companies. Many settlers who went west did encounter economic success, which painted a portrait of the west inductive to believe that the successes were based on individual motivation and grand old American ingenuity. Still any success experienced in the west would not have been possible without the help of Congress and the United States army. In 1862 Congress Passed the Pacific Railroad Act to establish railroad lines across the U.S.
The time before the Civil War is known for the vast expansion of the United States. Slavery affected many aspects of the unity and discord between the Northern and Southern states, such as in political, economic, and social arguments. In addition, some cultural factors caused union and divergence between different groups of religious people. Westward expansion affected the United State politically, economically, socially, and culturally in ways that at times unified them, but also, in some cases separated them. During the period between 1815 and 1861 the political issues that occurred within the states caused separation and Unity at the same time.

Two supporting events that slavery caused the civil war was the Missouri Conflict and the election of president Lincoln. Slavery was the root cause of the civil war because of the conflict between the north and the south centered around the beliefs in slavery. In 1818 the territory of Missouri requested to join the United State as a slave state. This raised the issue if slavery would expand towards this new territory as pro or con as a slave state which threatened the unity of the country. President Jefferson wrote letters to friends, including one to Hugh Nelson in 1820, saying: “The Missouri question is most portentous one which ever threatened our union.
Communication was also a factor that contributed to Mexico selling California to the U.S. If they had known about the gold findings, and the potential economic expansion that could result from it, Mexico may have been much less likely to make the deal with the U.S. which declared California American territory. Once news spread of the presence of gold in California, thousands of people began migrating into California. This created a mass demand for mining supplies, shelter and food, and many new job opportunities arose (Ketchum). It resulted in the rapid expansion of California as a Western territory in the United States.
