As European nations started to make their way to the Americas to broaden and expand their wealth and influence over the ‘New World.’ The first Europeans to explore and settle, this ‘New World’ were the Spanish. However, by the late 1600’s the English had successfully established a dominant presence on the Atlantic coast. Both the Spanish and the English desired to obtain ‘New World’ land for very similar reasons. They both desired silver and gold to add to their country’s vast wealth, as well as what the grains and plants of this ‘New World’ had to offer. When the Spanish arrived at the Americas prior to the English, the Spanish mainly wanted to explore this foreign land.
To answer question two, to compare and contrast immigration prior and during the late 19th would be that both were for personal well being. Those that settled in America, say the pilgrims, came here for religious freedom more or less. They sought for this new land to bring them new opportunities for a better life. The main difference between these waves of immigration has to be this notion of the “American Dream”. Though this new wave of immigrants did come seeking a better and new life, there was something a little different that separated them from the pilgrims.
Document B shows how dense New England's towns were. The houses were very close together, and church and school were in the center of town. Their religious convictions influenced this structure because church was a central part of their lives, so they all needed to live close to a church. Because of their religious devotion, education was also important to the Puritans. Schools were founded much faster than in the southern colonies, because the Puritans "dread[ed] to leave an illiterate Ministery to the Churches" (Document E).
The new world was coming about and people needed a new place to live. From people sailing over to the Americas, to people claiming them as their own, they were on a mission to make this land theirs. Were the Europeans in the late 15th and 17th century explorer, missionaries, merchants, or conquerors? In the late 15th and 17th century, people from all over Europe were coming to the Americas for better living, riches, new land, and resources. They wanted to spread the Christian faith and beliefs, and they wanted the land for themselves.
Discuss the reasons why Americans were drawn to expansion in the late nineteenth century? America’s was drawn into continual westward expansion in the late nineteenth century because it wanted to expand trade amongst other reasons. There was that small-group of Americans who warned that the country must not let itself be shut out of the scramble for empire. American was beginning to a overflowing population of America, which according to, a census, which stated by census that there was no longer a clear line separating settled the land from unsettled land. Furthermore, there was the lure of the nation’s missionaries to spread Christianity and prepare the world for the second coming of Christs.
Just as America was not founded as its own nation without outside influence, the customs and traditions practiced by the colonists were not originally created by the Puritans. Because they emigrated from Europe, it is only logical to trace back their witch-hunting customs to early Europe. Jensen suggests that ritual sacrifices grow more common as the society around individuals suffers a disturbance, either internal or external. This idea serves as a bridge between the taboo practice of sacrifice and the frequent use of scapegoats that allows society to blame their problems on innocent groups. As referenced by Jensen, social scientist Trevor Roper (1967) believes that witches were sought after as scapegoats for the Wars of Religion.
The Europeans were plagued with sickness and endless wars. The incentives for the Exploration only came after Columbus death; when the European Monarchs saw the potential for wealth and fame obtained through farming, mining, and other natural resources. The Spaniards Ferdinand and Isabella continued to conquer and control the voyages sailed across the Atlantic Ocean, with hopes of “discovering” a new world; along with establishing a partnership with Eastern Asia for swifter trade routes. Explorers Hernando de Soto, Hernan Cortes, and Vespucci, these great adventures would be recognized in History for the quest of the “Spanish Crown” and speaking about the Catholic lifestyle when their ships docked. These voyagers were particularly fascinated with Fountain of youth and the city of gold, El Dorado; which influenced the large religious and difficult group.
spain, the most able government in Europe and the Americas, wished to enhance themselves with the New World 's trademark resources. In the wake of enslaving indigenous social orders in the Caribbean and the southern parts of the Americas to create and burrow for gold, silver, and distinctive assets, the Spanish moved into North America where they amassed their undertakings in what is by and by the southwestern and southeastern United States. Catholic priests drudged to change over the Indians to Christianity, and they experienced some accomplishment purifying through water and
They communicated using lingua franca which is a common language used between speakers whose native languages are different. In this case the lingua franca was mainly used for trading and agreements amongst settlers and tribes as well as between tribes themselves. Trading was a very important part of common life in the “New World”, because trading created long alliances and would help resource the Europeans and tribes. The Europeans brought objects such as horses and firearms which the Native Americans had no access to and the Native Americans would return the trade by teaching the settlers to adapt to the land as well as providing local foods. There were many different variations of lingua franca throughout the continent mixing tribe languages with themselves as well as with French, English, and Spanish depending on the settlers’ background and the tribe’s location.
The colonization of North America by France and Britain in the seventeenth century is the beginning of the relationship with Aboriginal peoples. At that time, most of the newcomers were dependent on Natives for food, clothing, transportation assistance, and especially fur trading. Although Aboriginals were central to the success of early immigrants, gradually they became the subject of internal colonization especially after the fur trade declined. In the Canadian history, these peoples have been always oppressed, and the government has had a limited interest in recognizing their rights. Even the primary reason for decade-old treaties was based on defining aboriginal’s title to the land for an easier marginalization, and therefore, building
