It is common to hear that Christopher Columbus "discovered" America. Yet many history textbooks no longer describe Columbus's exploration in this way. Why do you think that is the case? What might be a better way to describe what occurred in 1492? Let’s get this straight.
Barbarians have an impressive history despite the bloodshed left in their wake. They somehow went from a lone, nomadic clan to an allegiance of clans who conquered Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe in a very short amount of time. The Barbarians success was probably a result of their strategy and preparedness in war. First they had a specific chain of command for their army and a strategy for attacking that would make their numbers seem larger and surround their adversaries. Furthermore, they would not allow their adversary to rest while fighting and instead took turns to wear them out.
As with any great expedition, there has always been a beginning and a goal in mind. Both the ventures of Christopher Columbus and Charles Lindbergh share this common trait, but include significantly different characteristics. With Columbus, the plan was to find an alternate route to Asia, but for Lindbergh’s flight, it revolved around creating the first successful transatlantic flight from New York to Paris. One of the plans involved establishing a better way to trade with other countries, while the other had a plan in mind to make history. From the start, they don’t appear to be similar when looking at the goals that each journey was planning to accomplish.
Westward Expansion What does Westward Expansion mean? The term Westward Expansion is the acquisition of territories by the United States across the whole area of the North American continent, from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west. Westward expansion was enabled by buying land, wars, treaties and the displacement of Native American Indians. The rapid settlement of territories gained during the process of Westward Expansion was made possible by progressive transportation systems such as roads, canals and the railroads and the belief in the Manifest Destiny of the United States of America.
Pre-Columbus The Americas was first settled in between 10,000 to 23,000 years ago when migrators could cross the Bering Strait on foot due to a land bridge that was there during the ice age. When the migrants arrived the continent it was in rough conditions. Due to the ice age everyone lived as hunters and gatherers. When the climate finally stabilized around 8000 BCE they divided themself into tribes settling
Christopher Columbus is known to be the one who established America, although his intention was to find a direct water route west from Europe to Asia. He didn 't technically “discover” America, for millions had already inhabited the land. When Columbus returned to the Americas he left his brothers Bartolomeo and Diego to rebuild the Hispaniola settlement, leaving with them crew members and native slaves. 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.
He seen the people and less than an underdeveloped with skills and they were very timid not speaking the same language as the Spaniards(2). Columbus’ thirst for “power and greed” took over him and started to enslave all natives. This came easy to them because they were armed with the latest weaponry. The natives were an easy target for the Spaniard. The natives were seen as “well-built people” but did not have the education to be compared to the advanced Spaniards (2).
He had read about the similarities in the American and European fossils and become interested by the fit of the Atlantic coastlines. He proposed the theory that the continents had drifted into place and had elaborated the continental drift theory in his book. Most geologists of the time believed that crust of the Earth had taken shape and this counter to the theory of continental drift. The Earth that has been created in a molten
"When you look at individual counties with high murder rates, you find large areas with few murders,"  this fact I don 't find hard to believe because, I think, with smaller areas, it 's easier to have connections and know people, therefore, there would be more fights and beef between people, resulting in chaos and deaths. Then again, it 's also hard to believe because I 'd imagine that small areas would have people getting along with one another much more easily, but no, people have to be stupid and mindless and kill others for chaotic reasons, especially when it comes to gangs. Finally, another surprising fact stated was, "Suburban households are 28.6 percent more likely to own guns than urban households" . When ever I think suburban, I imagine rich and sophisticated people who all get along and go to each others houses and having neighborly dinners and brunches. Not people who are terrified for their lives so need to keep a hang gun in their night stand drawer at all times.
The author starts from the very beginning of earth or from what we humans know of the latest time. The author first starts at groups of people or hunters searching for food and how they had to walk everywhere they wanted to go then goes into detail. The he progresses into how people have learned traits from the people that were there before them. He also talks about how the first american settlers were very skilled toolmakers.

Life is full of hardship and trials. Some people to choose to go on while some quit. Sometimes going in the wrong direction is better than going in the right one. For the first puritans, the unexpected happened. As they were sailing from the Netherlands in 1608 because “believing that Satan had begun to sow error in Europe….
The Scandinavian Vikings were a group of people who lived on the Scandinavian Peninsula which encompasses modern day Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. The Vikings were known for their strength and brutality in combat, and they were feared by civilizations and kingdoms all across Europe. These strangers from the north were often looked upon as savages and were thought of as the embodiment of Dark Age barbarism. While it may be true that the Norsemen were quite brutal in combat; it would be a mistake to think of them as mindless animals who commit to nothing but destruction (Stock Page1).
How Barbaric were the Barbarians? The Mongols were a barbaric peoples that reigned with cruelty. They displayed their barbaric tendencies showed through in their invasion and destruction of Nishapur, Persia, their methods of execution, and their rules. Throughout all these events and topics, the Mongols show an extreme level of cruelty, shown by no other before them.
