Antonio de Padua María Severino López de Santa Anna y Pérez de Lebrón, also know as Antonio López de Santa Anna, was a conceited president and general who used manipulation to obtain power over Mexico. He ruled over Mexico and led his people to many victories. He was a hero, but whenever trouble came he fled only to make a grand entrance during a crisis and lead Mexico to victory. He went by his own rules and made Mexico follow them. Antonio López de Santa Anna created a new form of government, used taking responsible risks to innovate a way to overcome the settlers, and illuminated the world by changing Mexico into the country it is today.
Columbus took native slaves of his own when he sailed west to continue his search for gold and treasures. During Columbus’s third trek he returned to the settlement in Hispaniola to find that the colonist had revolted against the atrocity of the leaders, and Spanish authorities to send a new governor to take over. Columbus later persuaded the Spanish King to make another voyage where he was attacked by natives, returned to Spain, and later died in 1506. In conclusion, Columbus’s voyage to the Americas was very important to our current history today, for if he were to not have gone through all that we may have never found America. Charles Lindbergh, on the other hand,
In his travels he went to many different tribes and took their wealth, but his most famous encounter was with Chief Tuscaloosa. Chief Tuscaloosa knew that De Soto was befriending him so that he could take their gold and territory. He had a surprise attack waiting for De Soto when he took them to their tribe’s territory, but De Soto and his men out gunned the natives and conquered their territory. De Soto is the perfect image for Spain’s conquering of the new world. All of Spain’s conquistadors went to America to conquer the new territory and take the wealth that the Native American’s had.
Before and After Columbus Christopher Columbus was known to many Americans as the great explorer. He “discovered” America but as years went on the glorified Columbus was criticized and historians had found error in his ways. Does this mean Columbus was a villain and everything he stands for should be demolished? In this essay we will explore how Columbus Day is honored or observed in the United States of America and how celebrating this holiday opens up sore wounds for American Indians and how he opened the doors for transatlantic slavery, mass murders and cruelty to the Indigenous people of America. This essay will explore the apparent legacy that Columbus is celebrate and honored for, and whether or not all Americans should continue to honor Columbus Day.
That’s exactly what Christopher Columbus did, he spread terror amongst the indigenous. Columbus was a criminal mastermind that ordered his men to mistreat the Taino Indians. He was willing to do any and everything to get what he wanted and if that meant that of his hands didn’t have to b ear blood he was fine with it. Columbus planned to go out and seek gold.
His men turned out to be homicidal cold blood killers besides being rapists. Columbus did not only enslaved the indigenous people in his quest to prove to the monarch of the wealth and fortunes and gold in new found land, he ordered for the chopping of hands of those who would not get the required quantities resulting to 10,000 natives to die without hands. In fact, those who opposed were either
In this essay we mostly learned about how Francisco Pizarro became one of Spain’s best conquerors. He was a good conqueror because he captured all of Peru, and found the Pacific Ocean. Anyway if you are interested in Francisco Pizarro, then if you want you can even see a statue that honors him in Trujillo, Spain, at Plaza Mayor. Originally though, the statue was in Peru, but in 2003 the mayor of Peru had asked for it to be taken down. This also was simply because people were starting to complain about how the statue back was facing the cathedral.
Hernan Cortes describes the problematic relations with the natives in “from Second Letter to the Spanish Crown”: “The inhabitants of [Temixtitan] wished to betray us they were very well equipped for it by the design of the city, for once the bridges had been removed they could starve us to death without our being able to reach the mainland” (38-39). “Literary Consequences of 1492” In the “Literary Consequences of 1492” section of “Beginnings to 1700,” Wayne Franklin illustrates the cultural response to literature of the era and describes literature 's impact on the ways of life in both the Americas and Europe. Literature in this time period was often spread to many due to the invention of the printing press. The vast discoveries of the West Indies were often discussed in letters that were later published, making many Europeans desire for the wealth and riches of the “New World.” Franklin writes, “from [columbus’] letter on, the printing press and the European expansion into America were reciprocal parts of a single engine” (11). The invention of the printing press and rapid spread of information ultimately led to the early colonization of the Americas on a large scale.
The Spanish, English, and French would all agree that the New World was a bountiful land, and a place where they could all potentially make a profit. These three groups began colonizing so they could gain profits off the land. The Spanish were mining for gold and silver, the English were harvesting agriculture, and the French were trading for fur skins, and through their attempts to gain money and power they all interacted with Native Americans. During colonization, the Spanish, English, and French treated the Native Americans they encountered with varying degrees of severity, and little kindness in most cases; consequently, their treatment heavily impacted relations with Native Americans. The Spanish terrorized Native Americans, which led many natives to fear the Spanish, and caused some to revolt against their reign.
The United States of America has been through many wars, wars concerning many things such as land oil, pride and respect. However, when the United States went to war with Mexico, it was planned over greed. The Mexican- American war was a war provoked by the United States, in efforts to expand the coasts of the country. Mexico was a small underprivileged country who had previously to the war had already lost part of their country (Texas). Needless to say this war was cut throat and violent, it was however one of the smartest business decisions America has ever made.
