These actions included annexing territory, fighting a war, and signing treaties. In 1818, the United States and Great Britain signed a treaty.

A historical pattern or sequence of events is like saying that history will basically repeat itself in some sort of way. Many of these explorers that we have talked about in class are trying to do three things, explore,conquer and settle. So first you could take Hernan Cortes, he traveled the seas in hopes of finding new land. His objectives were bring pride to his king and country, get gold and other valuables and convert everyone to christianity. Once Hernan had found land in what we call now mexico he went on an exploration of the land to figure out what was there.

The story goes that on December 8th, 1534, on a hill next to Mexico City, a figure showed itself to the indigenous boy Juan Diego (Peterson, Virgin 39) The figure spoke in the boy’s native language, Nahuatl, and asked for a church to be built in her honor on the exact same spot (Peterson, Virgin 39). Almost five centuries later someone who travels to Mexico will not only find a basilica built in the name of the Virgin of Guadalupe, but will encounter thousands of images and representations of her throughout the whole of the nation. What is now known as Mexico’ mother of the nation’ is a dynamic icon that has been reinterpreted many times throughout Mexican history (King 1-9). In this thesis I will investigate and analyze representations of
The main group that converted were natives. Converting to Christianity at the time meant lifting up into the new Spanish colonial society, which also meant there were more opportunities to conduct business, whether trade or farming. Nowadays, the Virgin Mary is considered a mother figure for the country of Mexico. Thousands of Christian pilgrims visit the shrine every year; as a result, thousands convert into Christianity. Our Lady of Guadalupe’s role in Mexican history is not limited to religious matters; she has played an important role in Mexican nationalism and identity.
It’s a good example when Elie says, “It’s over, God is no longer with us, but the march continued to go on”(76). Even though most of the people felt as if God wasn’t with them anymore, they continued to endure all of the physical and mental scarring. A twenty mile march wasn’t going to stop all the thousands of prisoners, they continued to overcome many obstacles throughout the book. All of the prisoners that survived put their minds to something, and they were able to overcome many obstacles. Obstacles can be very difficult, but you have to keep

The Mormon Pioneers opened up new exchange through the encounter with Indians and Frontiersmen and started the exploration
America and Christianity have long intertwined histories that have fostered strong parallels that can be drawn between these institutions’ ideal. It is for this reason that the modern evangelical Christian practice of televangelism emerged and thrived for much of modern American history, and, subsequently, became a profound and concentrated embodiment of American values and ideals. However, the most compelling and relevant example of televangelism as the embodiment of American ideals and values is Joel Osteen, the pastor and figurehead of the largest megachurch and religious organization, as well as one of the wealthiest American religious leaders. Building his career off these intertwined histories and ideals, Osteen’s career and preachings have greater
