Colonial America experienced significant changes during the late seventeenth and early eighteen centuries. The most important changes included the development of cities to became the main ports, and Southern part of America was transformed to be a major contributor to colonial America’s economy. These changes resulted in the rise in population with thousands of immigrants coming in large numbers due to the growth and improvement of the agricultural estate.
Simply put, In a Communist system, individual people do not own land, factories, or machinery. Instead, the government or the whole community owns these things. The ultimate goal of communism is to create a classless society and creating a dictatorship (A government in which one ruler has complete control over a country.) For nearly 35 years, the Cold War took place between the Soviet Union and the United States. The war was referred to as cold because there was never any physical fighting between the two countries. The Cold War essentially began due to political and military clashes between the two countries. After WW2, the United States sought for stronger united Germany and independent nations in Eastern Europe. The United States president
The United State at first had welcomed immigrants into the country to help develop its growing potential; however, this policy changed when the immigrant population dramatically increased. They started to not like it and think that the economic problem and the issues they had been because of immigrants and African Americans are causing these economic problems. They move into cities which they were very crowded. The rise in immigration in the United States during the 1920s played a large role in prolonging the Great Depression and the devastating unemployment rates. They were trying to stop this issue which lead for the Americans had passed the
I think the main reason for America turning outward , in 1890s because of in manufacturing capabilities and export. On that time America was also becoming more power generated population growth,wealth and productive capacity. Missionaries also played a big an important role in America turning outward. I think the another major fact was the idea that America was support and help the other weaker nations. This idea was motivated by the Darwinian theory.
During the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis took place. It was when two superpowers were close to causing a nuclear war. Its main origin was when the United States invaded Cuba, on April 10, 1961; which is also known as the Bay of Pigs invasion. After the invasion, previous Prime Minister; Fidel Castro of Cuba, was ‘paranoid’ because he felt like America was planning another attack. So in order to protect his nation, he sought military and economic help from the Soviet Union. Late president Nikita Khrushchev (from USSR), agreed to assist Castro and took immediate action. He installed missiles in Cuba, which the US thought was a threat to the security of their nation. In summary, I think that this was a defensive move by the Cubans.
In the time between 1877 and 1920 America saw another significant change to its landscape; this time in the make-up of its inhabitants. With industrialization immigrants increasingly came from Eastern and Southern European countries, Canada, Japan, and even Latin America. By 1910, some 70 percent of the immigrants entering the country were Southern and Eastern Europeans. In fact, in many cities the immigrated population outnumbered the native born citizens. Many states, especially those with meager populations, actively pursued immigrants by offering jobs or land for farming. The industrialization lured millions seeking economic opportunities for their families, while were anxious to escape oppressive governments. Whatever the reason, with these groups came a rich culture that would forever help to reshape the nation.
Overpopulation, new inventions of transportation methods, and new opportunities. These are three of many reasons why Americans in the 1800’s felt urged to move west. Some may claim that Westward expansion was not right for America to do because of the conflicts that were aroused afterward. America would not be the country

Immigrants, fleeing their homeland to escape oppression for religion or to find better opportunities for employment, were drawn to the booming American land of industrialization and urbanization. Old immigrants from Western Europe entered the country prominently in the 1880’s. But from the 1890’s to the outbreak of World War I, New Immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe flooded the country. These immigrants, bringing with them lesser-practiced customs and religions that could shape the culture of America, mainly congregated with people of similar nationalities in ethnic neighborhoods in the growing cities, thus limiting their assimilation into American society. Another factor limiting the influence of immigration on America was the resistance of the “native” Americans to the New Immigrants. Groups like the Immigration Restriction League and the American Protective Association wanted to restrict immigration into the United States. Legislature passed literacy requirements for immigrants, and even outright banned the entrance of certain groups, like the Chinese, into the country (Source A). As a result, immigration’s force in shaping America was limited in comparison to other phenomena.
To what extent were the causes of Cuban revolution primarily social or political or economical? Specify long and short-term causes.
In 1877, The United States was on the rise of the industrialization; America rapidly expanded, immigrants moved to the “melting pot,” and the nation became economically advanced. In July of 1776, the thirteen American colonies declared their independence and the nation was the “ United States of America.” The Americans wanted to be free form Great Britain because they wanted sovereignty and did not want allegiance with Britain. In 1803, the U.S. first purchased the Louisiana Territory from France for fifteen million dollars, which doubled the size of the land. The expansion happened quickly and allowed the nation to grow in power because America had more resources. The U.S. added fifteen parts of states to their territory for about forty-two
The late 19th century and early 20th century was time of great social, economic, and political change in the United States (U.S.). This time era was impacted by two major evens, the Civil War, and the Industrial Revolution. The Civil War physically divided the South and the North, and created a dysfunctional country. In an attempt to mend the country the government entered an era of Reconstruction. Simultaneously, the Industrial Revolution was growing and expanding. America’s manufacturing increased ten fold and between the 1860s - 1914 American became the lead manufacturer of the world. This huge increase of industries such as manufacturing, railroads, and mining led to a spike in immigration from all corners of the world. industrial immigration
Immigration has shaped the United States as a nation since the first newcomers arrived over 400 years ago. America has been known to be a nation of immigrants. Most immigrants viewed America as the "Land of Opportunity." Back in the mid-19th century to the early 20th century immigrants mostly from eastern and westerns Europe were leaving their home to find work in order to allow them to live a better life and to practice their religion freely. Many immigrants came to America seeking greater economic opportunity. America technically kept its promise but the quality of the job that came with it was terrible. They had jobs but the conditions were horrible
As history teaches us, the great land we call the United States of America was built on the conquest of Native Americans and their territories and the enslavement of Africans. Although the birth of America was extremely tumultuous, the contact between the three cultures proved to change cultures and values forever. No matter the opinion of how it began, it is no arguing that the interaction between these three cultures built the legacy that is now known as the United States of America. England had become so overpopulated that it was becoming difficult to live comfortably; therefore, explorers began looking to discover more land and as a result found a New World. Relocating to
Since Cuba is a primary tourist state with many industries, it creates tons of waste annually. In a year, roughly about 113.5 gallons of seawater are subject to the dumping of agricultural, industrial, and urban waste. Furthermore, 864 gallons of water in lakes and rivers throughout the country is also contaminated. A large part of the contamination comes from the ground after plants and trees have been soaked in fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides. The chemicals are absorbed into the ground and travel into surrounding bodies of water. This makes sense as Cuba’s warm climate is ideal for farming and makes up a large part of its economic well being. Moreover, industrial liquids have recently been reported of being dumped directly into the water. The contamination that occurs due to the nickel industry is one of the most serious contributors of water pollution in Cuba. Roughly about 3 gallons of chemicals from only one of the three nickel factories are dumped into the
