They were disrespecting religions and wiping out an entire city, which is very barbaric. Finally, the Mongols also did some very bad stuff to Baghdad. The Mongols had done similar stuff to Baghdad like they did to Azerbaijan. According to lostislamichistory.com, the Mongols destroyed Baghdad for a full week and showing no discretion towards them whatsoever, they destroyed mosques, hospitals, libraries, and palaces. The Mongols once again disrespected another religion along with destroying and the entire city.
By then, Columbus and the crews chopped off their arms and head. Christopher, decided to do this because, he trained his crews to show no mercy or sympathy towards everyone and he thought by doing this, it would make the Indians felt scared to bring the gold, unfortunately, they didn’t. The history of Christopher really caused an animosity that led people to be against him. Yet, Samuel Eliot Morison who is a Harvard historian of Columbus stated that whoever did something that is quite frightening, he is responsible to begin the decrease of depopulation of the Earth n 1492. Besides, Christopher Columbus abused all the Natives Indians, and so he is prove guilty of what he committed to the mass genocide, enslavement, and thievery of gold.
Pol Pot, The Worst Person to Ever Walk the Earth When you think of the worst person to ever walk the Earth, you might think Adolf Hitler, or Genghis Khan; however I believe the worst person to ever walk this planet is Pol Pot. He killed many of his own kind because they knew how to read, or even wore glasses. Besides that, the Khmer Rouge, the organization Pol Pot was leader of, decreased half of the Vietnamese population during the Vietnam War. Right before his death he was still a nasty man. He had killed millions so he could go back to a simpler way of life.
Other battles include Death on the Bozeman trail, Red river war, and the battle of Wounded knee. These battles lead the Native Americans to lose their land, homes, and move onto reserves. The map on Document 8 shows the decreasing lands for the Native American tribes. Because of the restrictions put on the Indians, they could not go in certain places to hunt. That includes the buffalo, the settlers however did end up killing a major portion of the population of the buffalo, for meat and fur.
Farmers found themselves on land unsuitable for agriculture. Worst of all many reservations were plagued with diseases such as chicken pox brought by the whites caused a serious outbreak of diseases in the reservations killing a huge portion of Indians. The U.S showed the effort by creating laws and acts to
Yellow fever which is transmitted by a mosquito can cause: Fever, nausea, it can affect the kidneys and liver, and in most cases it causes death. In the story the people’s eyes and skin turn yellow hence the name “yellow” fever. Yellow fever has affected towns all over and doctors cannot get a grasp on it. The death and sickness gets so bad that people are told to stay inside and not leave for any circumstances other than to leave town. The death in the city rises from the hundreds to the thousands daily.
Many of the natives died due to Columbus. Him and his crew forced many of them into labor because they did not have the gold or the spices he came there for. He brought some of them back on ships for slavery and many of them died on the way due to being malnourished by Columbus and his crew. While Columbus and his crew were back with the natives, they killed the natives that refused to give their items and jewelry away, So the king and
Disease played a major role in the destruction of Indian life. Early settlers brought a plethora of diseases that attacked and easily destroyed the unadapted immune systems of the Native Americans. These diseases killed many Native Americans and had severe impacts on their population. An example can be observed in the article when it describes how the Caddoan population lost around ninety-six percent of its population due to disease. Another example of how disease devastated the natives can be seen in the article when it describes how a single Spanish soldier that suffered from smallpox spread the disease to the Incas which eliminated half of their population.
It was the Spring of 1348, and the citizens of Europe were malnourished due to limited food supplies for such a large population. This made them more susceptible to the outbreak of the Black Death. The Black Death originated in Asia, then moved westward into Sicily. From Sicily, the plague crept its way up through Europe infecting millions of people, in total killing more than one third of Europe’s population. In fact, over fifty percent of the population of Siena died, along with fifty percent of Paris, eighty percent of Florence, and over two thirds of Venice.
After a beginning of worshiping and honoring of these thought to be gods, the Aztecs moved to fear for their city and their lives. A fear that was rightly justified by the merciless killings of their people and their kings. The Spanish wiped out an entire nation with their weapons and their diseases, only further proving that the relationship between these two great people was one that was destined to fail from the first footstep on Mexican soil by the Spanish. With the overpowering greed and disregard for life, the Spaniards took over the city of Tenotchlan and never looked back, never regretting the choices they made out of gluttony. The relationship between the Aztecs and the Spanish declined rapidly over time, as the Spanish wasted no time in murdering solely for the accumulation of gold and land.
In conclusion, it is evident that Alexander is anything but “the Great” because he is selfish, he is ruthless, and he has no respect for other cultures. Alexander killed over a million people, and many into slavery. He destroyed countless buildings of cultural significance, and he did great damage to the various cultures he conquered. Some might say Alexander was great because he expanded Greece or because he was influential, but evidence shows him to be anything
When the Europeans arrived, they wiped out most of the Native American population and destroyed their carefully sculpted land by building. Europeans, however, were not able to adapt to their new life in the Americas since they just didn’t know how to manipulate their environment like the Native Americans. Life was actually so brutal for the Europeans that many of them ran away to live with the Indians, suggesting that the Indians had a higher quality of life than the first Europeans did. “Horrifying the leaders of Jamestown and Plymouth, scores of English ran off to live with the Indians” (Mann, p9). The “high counter/low counter” argument further suggests that the Native Americans had a high standard of living, probably higher than the European standard of living at that time.
During the thousands of years before the arrival of European contact, the Native American people developed an inventive and creative culture. They had created a very well round colonization among the extensive land. The year 1492 the Spaniards allowed for Christopher Columbus's voyage of discovery began a series of developments. Columbus traveling in hopes of finding faster route to Asia for trade and riches. While he never truly ended up there, the new found land was viewed as an opportunity for new riches.
A) During the British conquering of Ireland in the 1570s and 1580s, “many English soldiers developed in Ireland a sneering contempt for the ‘savage’ natives, an attitude that they brought with them to the New World.” Such an attitude materialized in the use of “Irish tactics” by the British where “Elizabeth’s troops crushed the Irish uprising with terrible ferocity, inflicting unspeakable atrocities upon the native Irish people.” Indeed, one of such English soldiers included Captain De La Warr, who, unlike his predecessor, Captain John Smith, treated the Native Americans terribly just as he did the Irish, “raid(ing) Indian villages, burn(ing) houses, confiscat(ing) provisions, and torch(ing) cornfields.” Such a Native American policy led to
