During the colonial era of America, Great Britain was able to reek the benefits of this royal colony’s success. This was in large part due to the fact that Britain was able to integrate this society into its imperial system. English leaders understood that the American colonies represented a marketplace for goods, a safety valve, and a place in which competition flourished with other leading empires. One of the most important reasons why Great Britain established colonies in America was to create another form of revenue. This can be seen through the gradual engagement between Great Britain and America.
The gap between the rich and the poor was larger than ever, and homelessness was on the rise as cities became extremely dense and overpopulated. Britain didn’t want this surplus population to go to waste, so the colonization of Africa was a good excuse to export these people so that they could help in taking over Africa. Overall, the reason for Britain’s colonization campaign for Africa was to show superiority to other nations, for natural recourses, and oversight on African trades. It’s clear that they were driven by economic and strategic
People, who immigrated from another country, traveled all over the world to make it to America in hopes of getting land in “The New World”. When more and more people came from different countries to collect the riches that Columbus had found, neighboring countries felt the urge to send residents on a permanent voyage to discover the riches like Christopher Columbus had done. It wasn’t just two or three countries who followed this mechanism either In the French colonial regions, they were focused on trade, specifically of fur with the natives. While the French were focused on trade, a large portion of their income came from fish. Along with that, farming developed, mainly to provide support.
Was the British Empire a force for good? The British Empire brought many changes to the world, good and bad, to many people in different countries e.g. Africa and India. Some of these changes involved innovations in medical care, education and railways. The British Empire profited from slavery in the eighteenth century, but fought to abolish slavery in the nineteenth century.
The different reasons they came are, sources of colonial population, economic, and relations with the Native Americans. The first reason settlers came to America was due to the population. In fact, the Spanish people tried to mix their “blood” with other cultures. Document A states that, “The Spanish had about seventeen different mixed offsprings that was reported within 1521-1800s.” The Spanish did this due to the Caste
The British worked to help preserve the environment and animals (#17).The British destroyed forests and the soil that they farmed on. After a few years the soil was degraded and the quality went down (Doc 7). This shows how even though they worked to preserve the environment, the British were really just tearing up India’s land to farm for their own crops and then ship them back to Britain. The British built 10,000 tracks and 136,000 bridges (#14). They built railways to secure their own British rule in India (#13).Even though they built lots of bridges and railroads for transportation most of it was mainly built to benefit themselves and make sure they kept their rule in
Dontae Joseph AP U.S. History Grade 11 Europeans had gone to the New World is search of wealth, power, or religious reasons, all had hoped for a better than in Europe. Religion was one of the reasons why the colonies had first developed, it helped create religious freedom and allowed people to continues their religious practice without persecution. However, not all the colonies had centered themselves around religion. In the early American colonies religion had a big impact on the development in the New England, Chesapeake, and Mid-Atlantic Colonies. The New England, Chesapeake, and the Mid-Atlantic Colonies were beginning to find their reason of life whether it be around religion, wealth, or profit each colony had centered around a different
(document 12) The journey Columbus took spanned months so they almost certainly brought medicine. The reason Columbus didn’t help them was unknown but a known fact is that he didn’t bother to help them. Finally, the native American population got decreased by more than 24 million because of Columbus’ actions. The graph in document 13 show a decrease in the Native American population by 24 million people. This resulted from the arrival of the Spaniards in 1492.
Document one points this effect out by stating; “...these places can yield the tropical produce (resources) that their citizens need.” The British used India in this way, as a means to advance themselves economically, giving themselves more power. Since the British controlled all of the factors of production in its manufacturing economy, other countries were at a deficit if they wished to trade with the British. In other words, they would purchase from the British, but the British would not purchase anything from them,
Improvements in technology had a great effect in population inside and outside British. Which help to appear print machine and transport vehicle. This lead to new methods of spear information and news about colonization to people in British with Magazine, Newspaper and book. English Literature developed and reached the peak in poetry, novel and stories. People inside British become knowing about colonization and other cultures from what they read or new things they see it brought in from foreign lands.
