The negative effects were mostly the destruction of the empire; after three months of conflict Cortez had finally defeated the capital city of the Aztec Empire, Tenochtitlan (Tucker). Cuauhtémoc, the emperor, was taken captive and later that year he was executed, and Cortez became the ruler of the vast empire (Tucker). The Aztecs were highly vulnerable to European diseases unknown to their nation, such as smallpox and typhus; in 1521, smallpox annihilated the population of Tenochtitlan, two following epidemics wiped out 75 percent of the remaining population (Tucker). The surviving Aztecs were not allowed to learn of their native culture and were enforced to read and write in Spanish, unfortunately a wide range of the Aztec religion and culture were lost forever (Tucker). Some positive aspects were that the Spanish helped ‘modernize’ the civilization, they introduced them to domestic animals, sugar, grains and even European farming practices (Tucker).
Very quickly people were saying, “The Mexican Revolution is a revolution” (Rojo). It was much more than a bit of resentment towards the government. These people taking the initiative to change the way the country was running would play a great role in the course of history. At the most basic level, they changed the constitution of Mexico. But look closer, and discover that many more changes came out of the revolution.
In his campaign against the Aztec Empire, Cortez relied upon the other local indigenous tribes for assistance. Why did they ally themselves to Cortez and how did they help him secure ultimate victory? In Cortez’s venture to seize Mexico from the Aztec powers he was given he allied with other indigenous tribes, such as the Tlaxcalan's. It can be seen that perhaps the ally was more of mutual want for the destruction of the Aztecs as a mutual enemy rather then the want to benefit one another but the result shows us that this ally between the indigenous and the Spanish Hernan Cortez resulted in both the siege of Mexico and downfall of the Aztecs which may not have happened without this alignment.
Macbeth went to drastic measures to to kill king duncan “act 2 scene 2” after had done this Macbeth didn’t feel any sign of completion or relief it is something that haunted him. e.g. Macbeth later on see’s the bloody dagger levitating the Dagger pointing towards the chambers. Paragraph 2:
Both were assassinated forsimilar reasons. Caesar was stabbed to death near the Theatre of Pomercy on March 15 because the senators want to maintain the Roman republic. Lincoln was killed and shot by John Wilkes Booth, on April 14, 1865, because Booth thought it would help the south. Both were influential leaders that many people looked up too. Abraham Lincoln before he was assassinated in 1865 he definitely left his mark on the world.
Alexander was fearless of what other leaders could have done to him and his men, he was so fearless he even stood on the front line with his men, unlike today when the leaders sit back in safe zones while their men die for their
When the Spanish vessel under the commando Valdivia sank, all 18 were captured and 4 of them were sacrificed. The Spanish arrived in 1515 and 1516,they brought with them diseases that caused the Mayan population to decline. In 1546 the city of Merida was founded and served as a capital for Spanish incursions to the South. In 1618 Spanish churches were constructed to try convert the Mayan into believing in Christ. In 1695 and 1696 the Spanish decided to subjugate the Petén Itza by force.. The Spanish would hurl native Americans into pits with sharpened stakes if the dared to resist them.
For Jesse Owens, he became a nationally known figure and became very popular for his running skills. The New York Mets even took notice and hired Owens as a running coach (Christopher Klein, section 9). People will remember the 1936 Berlin Olympic games forever. Hitler’s attempt to create positive propaganda that promoted his Aryan race had a major set back after men like Jesse Owens came in snatching gold medals from many different events and competitions. These Olympics made many people realize who Hitler was, what he was about, and why he was really hosting the games.
Throughout their lives of victories and success they were looked up to and feared in they era no one would ever dare cross them but sometimes the mightiest of all fall. And with that legends are born…. So in conclusion, spartacus in hector where like in many ways spartacus was all slave who rose against his owner and started a rebellion to free slaves across the land. Making him a wonderful leader and hector was basically born into the life of wanting to be great in he actually turned out to be an
Everyone knows what the Alamo is and most know the story of it, how the Texans, led by William Travis, James Bowie, and Davie Crocket, had to try and fend off the Mexican soldiers led by Santa Anna. Being outnumbered all the Texans rebels had to fight for was for the pride of Texas and that is what they did and from that some famous myths about certain things were created during the fight like Travis’s line in the sand or Davie Crockets willingness to fight to the death. Randy Roberts and James S. Olson are able to relate the well-known story of the Alamo to the readers and really get into both the Mexican and American perspectives. In “A Line in the Sand the Alamo in Blood and Memory”, Roberts and Olson are able to separate what really happened
After its independence in 1821 and brief experiment with monarchy, Mexico became a republic in 1824, characterized by considerable instability, as a result, the U.S. initiated the conflict with the Centralist Republic of Mexico. The U.S took advantage of the fact that
“In exchange for his freedom, Santa Anna signed a treaty recognizing Texas’ independence” (Battle of San Jacinto, 2015). General Houston and his army were heavly inspired for victory following the massacres at the Alamo and Goliad. Santa Anna lost the Battle of San Jacinto due his previous viciousness, arrogance, and misuse of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) assets effectively. Had Santa Anna not made these mistakes, the Battle of San Jacinto would have turned out differently and Texas may have not won its independence from Mexico (Wright, n.d.). Introduction
In the 20th century Mexico many different revolutions, corruption, and, political leaders took part in molding the country into a commercial and economic developed country. A big change Mexico went through was the Mexican revolution and how it sat the bar for Mexican politics for the future.
