Indians and medicineAs the new American people showed up in the new world they encountered Indians or Native Americans.These people were in America way before the new explorers.These people can not be found today due to war,murder,or illness.When the Europeans came over they came with an idea that they could just take the land to themselves.So small war would be common to claim or keep land however, the Europeans had the upper hand in almost every fight due to there ability to make strong fire arms and armour and on the other hand the indians had bows and no armour.Another way Native Americans died was because of illness.The Europeans brought diseases that the Indians never encountered before.That was a large impact on the population of indians.Back then ther were no medicines that would cure your illness real quick. For instance, a common cold that we make take a pill for and it be over in a few days may kill hundreds of Indians.
