Their culture, being greatly different than the natives, was introduced and influenced them so greatly; signs of it can still be seen today. My goal in this paper is to discuss both the good and the bad effects that came of the Europeans exploring and colonizing the America’s. The cultural effects that the Europeans had on Native American’s through their exploration as well as colonization were obviously great, however, it is very hard to make a generalization about this because there were many tribes in the America’s, each differently affected. In the 1570’s,
The Columbian Neo Indian Trade, which happened in the year 1492 can be portrayed just like a trade of thoughts, sustenance, yields, ailments and populaces between the New and Old world. The motivation behind why this specific time period is of such significance is on the grounds that not just would these occasions would have affected the general population living in this time however it would likewise change the future for eternity. I will give careful consideration to a portion of the new things individuals of the New World would have been presented to amid the period. In this paper I will concentrate on products, innovation, animals, ailment and religion. Plants that were included in the Columbian Trade had an effect on the way of life
The colonist’s success in the colonies depend on their livestock thriving, because the livestock provided them with meat as well as dairy. The main conflict between the Native Americans and colonists involving the livestock stemmed from their overall cultural differences. The Native Americans respected animals and nature while the colonists on regarded animals as food. This began to create a problem for Phillip, because he became torn between his Native American ideals and customs and adapting to the colonists’ ideals and customs. The Native Americans grew agitated with the
What Led Europe to Succeed over Natives Upon the uncovering of the of the America’s by the European super powers, most of the native American tribes were quickly captured. The question arises as to why the Europeans conquered the Americans and not the other way around. Europe was able to prosper and grow while the indigenous groups of the Americas stayed in the past. European success over American tribes was attributed to the fact that the Europeans possessed more advanced technologies and skills that could be used against natives, Europeans were literate and could record knowledge and events easily, and the European diseases brought over were devastating to the unprepared indian populations.
The English Longbow From about the beginning of the 14th century to the late 16th century, the English longbow became the most prevalent weapon of the time. Its rapid rate of fire and long distance shooting range secured victories for the English in many battles against the French. These longbows in the hands of the English Longbowmen were the crucial element of the English victories in the Hundred Years’ War; notwithstanding, England was at a sizeable disadvantage militarily. The longbows not only provided an advantage militarily, but they were also economically effective in their cheapness and in the simplicity of making them.
The Indians, known to be peaceful and loving people; suddenly after the arrival of the prominent Christopher Columbus in the New World became faced with the ultimate challenge to conquer, or to be conquered. Columbus imposed his quest on them, although they had already established their own colony. This group of natives that faced enslavement, misery and death, were often wanted and needed for the success of many colonists. While Columbus and the Spaniards motive was to obtain wealth from the Indians, their ultimate goal along with the English who supervened in 1607, followed by the French, was to increase their superiority through European colonization. The hardworking, resourceful, independent Indians reacted in different ways towards colonization
Horses were a large part of the reason they could minimize their impact on bison population. The Comanche could carry large quantities of dried meat and efficiently hunt bison. Comanche only hunted only twice a year: in early summer and in late. Horses were a major resource due to them being useful for war, trade and transporting goods. The horse was useful for trade because they could trade horses for European weapons.
When the Civil War finally began, most of the nation’s wealth was situated in the the North. The industrialization of the North would give Northerners an advantage in producing guns, bullets, and other materials needed for warfare. One of the most important gun inventions was the Gatling gun. It is the ancestor of the modern machine gun, it was the most successful of several rapid-fire guns that were born before the war. Richard Gatling invented the gun in the hopes that a weapon so catastrophic in its damage would convince men to stop waging war.
The Downfall of the Native Americans The conquistadors came to the New World to conquer the land and everything they could gain from it such as gold, money, gems, and power. While the Native Americans had a few advantages over the conquistadors, having a larger population and already having set cultures throughout their nations to name a couple the conquistadors would succeed in subduing the Native Americans. The Europeans were successful in their endeavor for a few reasons; environmental factors, technology and tactics. One of the main factors that allowed the Europeans to take over the Native Americans was diseases; smallpox, typhus, and measles being the main killers. Europeans unknowingly brought over diseases with them causing epidemics and a huge depopulation among the Native
Historians who practice historiography agree that the writings from the beginning of what is now known as the United States of America can be translated various ways. In James H. Merrell’s “The Indians’ New World,” the initial encounters and relationships between various Native American tribes and Europeans and their African American slaves are explained; based on Merrell’s argument that after the arrival of Europeans to North America in 1492, not only would the Europeans’ lives drastically change, but a new world would be created for the Native Americans’ as their communities and lifestyles slowly intertwined for better or worse. Examples of these changes include: “deadly bacteria, material riches, and [invading] alien people.” (Merrell 53)
APUSH SUMMER ASSIGNMENT 2016 – PART THREE – COLUMBIAN EXCHANGE The Columbian Exchange refers to a period of cultural and biological exchanges between the New and Old Worlds, which mostly took place during the 15th and the 16th centuries. Exchanges of plants, animals, diseases and technology transformed European and Native American ways of life. This phenomenon was a result of an accidental voyage from Christopher Columbus on 1492. Christopher Columbus was Italian explorer who, under the auspices of the Catholic monarchs of Spain-
The European conquest on the peoples had a great impact on the ecologies of the Americas, both positive and negative. In the beginning, for example when Francisco Pizarro began his conquest of the most powerful state in the New World, the Incan Empire, he brought many new things. He brought the knowledge of utilization of domestic animals, such as cattle and horses, to be beneficial to the whole society. The knowledge of using their muscle to capitalize on productivity of farmland, something that the Incas never had. James Diamond supports this by showing the great geographical advantages that the Europeans, especially the Spanish, had to their Incan counterparts.
The European exploration connects with the exploration that occurred in the United States. The exploration allows new opportunities for a nation to grow and prosper and enabled the nation to progress on the living situations (finding new land-creating new houses).
