Bacon did not need to us his "hero" status to rebel and destroy the colony by burning it down. #mrkulo

I feel that both Bacon and Berkley had both unjust and just aspects. Berkley should have helped out the citizens
of Jamestown #mrkulo

but Berkeley should have represented the poor colonists and defended them against the native americans.

Bacon's actions were out of control and he needed to be stopped. #mrkulo

Governor Berkeley was justified in his actions during Bacons's Rebellion. #mrkulo

08-Sep-09 01:23 | CaptainWoodward

I think Bacon had good intentions by going to the Governor first and going against his say. He helped a lot of the
colonists out. #mrkulo

I think that Bacon shouldn't have killed the Indians that were friendly to the colonists. #mrkulo

08-Sep-09 00:14 | MoniqueAlyse

I think berkeley was just trying to do what he could to keep the colony in order, but failed. #mrkulo

Bacon should not have led an attack on the indians when he was told not to by the governer of jamestown.

I don't understand why Berkeley taxed the poor so much and why he felt the need to only pay attention to the
plantation farmers. #mrkulo

Regardless of his position in the gov't, it doesn't make it okay to only provide funding for the rich. The poor
deserved help too. #mrkulo

Wasn't it Berkeley's responsibility to maintain order, regardless of what a fringe number of farmers thought about
tax money? #mrkulo

Neither man was justified. Berkeley refusing to assist people in need is just as bad as Bacon creating an army to
fight the Natives. #mrkulo

#mrkulo They should have used the gov tax money to make a second small settlement so they didnt cause a
problem with the Natives out west.

Try to include a short reason for your view point...#mrkulo

07-Sep-09 02:45 | mrkulowiec

Anyone consider the implications of the tax $ not being used to support the colonists living out west that needed
gov. support? #mrkulo
07-Sep-09 01:57 | mrkulowiec

@acshean11, I agree aswell. Bacon's actions were hostile and resulted in unessary death, he should not be seen
as a hero in any way.#mrkulo
07-Sep-09 01:27 | asgleason08

I feel that both Nathaniel Bacon and Gov. Berkeley were unjust. #mrkulo

07-Sep-09 01:24 | asgleason08

I think Nathaniel Bacon was justified because he created an independent campaign #mrkulo

@Jiynxie I agree, Bacon had no right to do anything horrible to the Native Americans. Especially when one tribe
was an alliance #mrkulo

Berkeley should have helped out the poor farmers, and Bacon shouldn't have set Jamestown on fire. #mrkulo

i think that both Berkeley and Bacon's actions were unjust. #mrkulo

Bacon had absolutly no right to do what he did. No right to capture, tourture, and kill all those native americans.
05-Sep-09 21:48 | Jiynxie

I think that Bacon could have handled things with the native americans so much better #mrkulo

05-Sep-09 20:34 | Jiynxie

I think that Nathaniel Bacon was justified....
