The drastic differences between the two groups eventually transformed America into a divided nation of sectionalism economically, politically, and socially. Westward expansion had an economical impact on the North and South’s separation in many ways. For every set of land gained, one would be a free state and the other a slave state. The South used its gained land for agricultural improvement, while the North constructed factories and manufacturing buildings to strengthen its industrial economy. Although expansion gave America more opportunities and potential economic growth, expansion also affected the relationship between the North and the South: both groups disputed over several U.S.
As conflicts between the catholics and the protestants became more violent, it affected the English economy. In Europe, England was known for their production of woolen cloth, and they had been successful in establishing trade companies in other Europeans countries. But, because of the increasing unemployment caused by severe religious conflicts in England, the English slowly began to look for opportunities in the Americas. Even though England was inexperienced with overseas trading, or heard that there were hostile Indians, they were still hopeful in establishing an overseas trade like the
England was the last of the large European empires to begin their exploration of the New World. Their desire to discover new land spawned from their need for raw goods that was currently threatening to throw their economy out of balance, their victory in the Anglo-Spanish War which gave them the courage to challenge Spain, their need to find unsettled land for their younger population and their want to spread Protestantism (Schultz, 32). English settlement of North America began in 1585 with Sir Walter Raleigh and his settlement of Roanoke. Roanoke did not succeed as a settlement but Raleigh learned that Spain’s conquistador model of quick riches was not a correct model for English success. In order to succeed, England would have to setup settlements based on a model of plantations and agriculture.
Braford E. Burns began writing The Poverty of Progress as a historical essay arguing against the “modernization” of nineteenth century Latin America. Burns argues that modernization was preformed against the will of the majority and benefited a small group of Creole Elite, while causing an exponential drop in the quality of life for folk majority. Burns supports his research through a series of dichotomies. Within the first twenty years of the nineteenth century the majority of Latin America gained independence from Spain. Prior to the Latin American countries gaining independence, the Creole elites expressed great displeasure with the crown and readily equated themselves with the American colonists before gaining independence from Britain.
The aims of the Jamestown expedition were to establish England’s claim to North America, and claim land and riches. Inexperience and unwillingness to work led to disagreements and inaction at Jamestown. The absence of work ethic changed when John Smith took leadership in September 1608. John Smith was an organizer; he brought order and discipline to Jamestown and set a government. The settlers at Jamestown were members of the Anglican faith, the official Church of England.
The necessity for this better network to move goods manifested itself in this desire for improvement. After the War of 1812, demand increased for better roads and canals to expedite the transport of goods across the nation (Dudley). This improved package of commerce and transportation directly contradicted the attitude of Agrarian Republicans like Jefferson who hoped that industrialization would not dominate America or its politics, fearing the inevitable shift of the country into continuous international turmoil. Jefferson’s fear was realized as nationalism manifested itself in manufacturing, with patriotic Americans taking pride in the factories that had recently mushroomed forth (Dudley). After the war, many Americans felt differently due to the war’s stimulative effect on the economy.
In the time during Westward Expansion was the time of new beginnings in America and it was time to move forward in land. America wanted to be superior to the rest of the countries around them. They went through many challegements to buy Louisiana Territory and explore its land around it as well. The country even almost went into bankruptcy and was almost sold to the French, but hopefully that did not happened. They even with success of land came trouble with greedy with expansion.
Robert Pattinson came to America 1750s to get more resources so he could become rich and get more land. One thing that Gilles Marini traded a lot of is fur. Gilles along with the French traveled over the Appalachian Mountains to get more land. Taylor Lautner and the other natives were getting squished because more and more French and British were coming to America so the natives were losing lots of land. Robert had to cross the Appalachian Mountains to get to Ohio river valley.
the immense movement of these people contributed in a significant manner to the economic growth of the web, because these people originated from places where labour did not generate a great deal to places where it did. This migration transformed the receiving countries economies to the most dynamic in the world and hence, their societies into religiously and ethnically diverse ones. Nevertheless, these migrations sometimes caused abiding strains that persisted to beset politics nowadays. It also served as a safety measurement for the rural population tension in the arising countries societies, which would otherwise have led to greater unrest. Moreover, these substantial movements of people – including goods and money – led to three remarkable changes.
Triangular trade led to world economy growing rapidly as more goods were being made and traded more than ever before. In conclusion both religious factors and economic factors played a huge role in the colonization of America, but in different ways. The British wanted to ensure economic dominance through their powerful monarch. The new settlers came seeking a better life, along with wanting to create a society based on freedom. To each their
As the Northeast began to develop industrially after the was of 1812, jobs were created providing both men and women the chance to earn a living. Though the idea of the industrial industry brought many positive innovations, the reality was not all it was cracked out to be. Working conditions proved unreasonable, and harsh. Though the innovations to come from the industrial industry were quite historical. Great Britain saw America start to slip away from their economical grasp, forcing great Britain to forbid any skilled manufactures from migrating to America.
“Preventing our obtaining more subsistence by cultivating of new lands, [the French] discourage our marriages, and keep our people from increasing; thus…killing thousands of our children before they are born,” wrote Benjamin Franklin. Franklin regarded the importance of expanding westward necessary for the American colonists; more land was needed for the colonists to keep growing, but the French were in their way. As the continent of North America was tossed repeatedly back and forth from the hands of the French to the hands of the British, the American colonists could not wait to devour the heavily contested lands west of the Appalachians. But through a combination of politics and economics, the colonists were not allowed easy access to those rich lands. Land was of such importance to the colonists that it caused the American Revolutionary War.
POLITICAL - shortly after the economic surge, peasants and workers across Europe resorted to rebellion, fearful that rising taxes would negate their significant raise of wages. By the end of the 15th century the monarchs of England, France and Spain put an end to the state of unrest by forming state administrations to control sectors of the country, as an extension of the throne. The bubonic plague’s devastating effects on the Native Americans may have helped Spain conquer and colonize the New World by reducing the native’s numbers significantly. SOCIAL - the economic improvement incited what is referred to as the Renaissance in Europe, or an increase of interest and funding for the arts. The Black Death in the New World had the opposite effect,
Some effects on the plague had that I didn’t know was the political effect it had in Europe. I had no idea that peasants made a smart move in demanding for higher wages because they realized the need of peasants for lords were rising exponentially. I knew I wanted to do a powerpoint because I felt like it is the best way to have a lot of information instead of a song/play.
No one reason can be given for any event in history—in colonial times, North America was settled for a multitude of reasons. Although escape from religious persecution or the desire to expand a religion was one reason, economic concerns and the want for wealth comprised the majority of Britain 's intent to settle colonies in North America. Early European exploration of Asia and Africa was driven by trade and economics; because religion was a large part of daily life back then and into the years of American settlement by Europeans, explorers would cite it as their inspiration. The earliest settlements were motivated by an economic depression in England. Later, the first colonies of New England were settled by wealthy Puritans looking to create
