These changes will soon be repeated in countries like the German Coast Uprising of 1811 in the United States. Naturally, the bloodiness of the Haitian Revolution aroused fear among many. For example, Thomas Jefferson in Document 9 wanted to end contact and abolish trade in order to ensure peace and stop violence between different groups of people. Jefferson knew that contact with Haiti would cause slavery to be a debated question for the United States. With Haiti being another republic, the new country no longer imported slaves from the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, which ultimately shaped the economy particularly in the Western
It was the bourgeoisie class that was educated, yet they didn’t have privileges like the First and Second Estate consequently, they began to question if there should be a social and political change in France.

Although he believed in a general will, Toussaint still believed that Haiti would be best off as an empire. In the Haitian Constitution, it is clearly stated that Jacques Dessalines is the emperor of Haiti. Monarchy directly contradicts many liberal beliefs, as it is a very conservative form of government. Conservatives were against change and progress, and thought that monarchy was the most effective form of government. However, Toussaint thought that his people were capable of making some decision, “ to the task of persuading Kings that their rights are confined to sitting upon a throne, while those of the people are to govern, and attacking all that centuries have bequeathed as holy and worthy of man’s respect-denying, in fact, the value of the past, and declaring themselves the masters of the future.” Toussaint did not believe that the people were completely incapable of having any real thought or belief about how government should be run.
The surveillance of these actions are practically unheard of because slaves were thought of as property. The Chesapeake and New England colonies were very different based on goals and ethics but the people faced many of the same hardships. Chesapeake people were focused on economic growth and freedom from England, while the New English colonies were focused on strict religion based living. The vulnerability of the New World greatly impacted both groups but the goals in which they set, shaped the colonies from the

As part of his plan of rapid industrialisation, Guevara believed that a diversification of Cuba’s agricultural production and increased investment in industrialisation was necessary to end Cuba’s reliance on Sugar. By late 1963, Guevara realised his mistake and diverted resources from Industrialisation to sugar production, but his efforts proved to be futile, and the Cuban economy was situated at its lowest point since Castro’s rise to power. In summary, Guevara’s significance and lasting effect cannot be understated. From his Legacy as a martyred hero who stood up for the oppressed, to the significance of his ideology and teachings in Latin America, and the key role he played within the Cuban

Ferdinand and Isabella received authority over the New World from Pope Alexander VI in his encyclical Inter Caetera (Weber 19). Believing that they had exclusive rights over the New World, the Spanish crown was on a moral crusade to disseminate Spanish culture and Catholicism to indigenous people in all of the Americas (Weber 19). The Spaniards came to the New World seeking riches, gold and silver, claiming the land for the crown and souls for the Church (Fisher 12). Eternal Salvation was the goal of the Spanish explorers if they claimed the possessions of the New World for the crown and if they brought Christianity to the indigenous people (Fisher 14). Eventually tensions exploded between the Spaniards because each viewed their mission differently.

Withholding this significant information will forever make it more challenging to truly abolish slavery. Therefore, Americans should not feel encouraged that the United States or other countries are free. In agreement with Frederick Douglass, it’s great in a way that some citizens celebrate their freedom, but not all share this same gratitude. In addition to this, I find it ironic how in “What to the Slave is Fourth of July,” Douglass mentions the enslavement all of am Americans felt under the British control. It affected everyone, so citizens fought for their freedom.
The island of Haiti, which today is occupied by the nations of Haiti and the Dominican Republic is one of several landfalls Christopher Columbus made during his first voyage to the new world in 1492. Columbus established a makeshift settlement on the north coast which he dubbed Navidad after his flagship, the Santa Maria, struck a coral reed and foundered near the site presently known as Cap Haitien. At his arrival on the island, Columbus found the Taino Indian inhabitant who referred to their homeland by many names, not the most commonly used Ayti or Hayti which means mountainous. Initially hospitable toward the Spaniard, the natives were forced to respond violently to the newcomers’ intolerance and abuse. In fact, when Columbus returned
