As stated in an article called Spanish Colonization Introduction it states "and Spain used the wealth of the Americas to finance nearly endless warfare in Europe, protecting the Americas with a vast navy and powerful army and bringing Catholicism to the New World" which means they were using the money they were making from the America's for their own uses.
The reconquest was a battle of the series between Christians and Moors for control of the Iberian Peninsula. Spain won with the powerful monarchs. Together Spain were united under a single government in 1478 through the creation of the Spanish Inquisition. This would convert to Catholicism Jews and Muslims or people of these religions would be forced to leave Spain. In 1492, 160,000 Jews left Spain and four years later followed the Muslims Jews.
By the time the Spaniards marched all the way to the Aztec metropolis, Tenochtitlan, they had created several allies. Portilla explains that the people that sided with the Spaniards were enemies that had been conquered by the Aztec. The Mexica’s began to resent their “gods” and mistrust King Motcuhzoma for letting the Spanish conquistadors wreak havoc among the natives and their customs. Before long the author begins to describe the many battles fought between the Aztec warriors and the strangers. These were awful and terrible battles that continued for three years.

Ponce de Leon was one of the first Spanish explorers in North America. He was the Governor of Puerto Rico and he came to explore Florida. Stories say that he was looking for the Fountain of Youth that Indians had told him about, but really he was capturing Indians to use as slaves. He named the area Florida from the Spanish words for the Easter season, “Pascua florida.” He also tried to establish a colony in North America, but was attacked by Indians and wounded.
This discovery is considered by historians to be the beginning of Spanish colonization of America, which started with the discovery of the Bahamas by Christopher Columbus in 1492. This was also the start of the long-lasting abuse of the Natives by Spanish conquistadors. Christopher Columbus and his men were the first European people Indians met, and Indians’ introduction to the West was followed by many deaths among Native Americans and continuous violence from the Spanish conquistadors. They exploited local inhabitants: raped women, killed children, enslaved local population. In his journal Christopher Columbus wrote: “They would make fine servants....
After hundreds of years of proven service to Spain, the Creoles felt that the Bourbons were now treating them like a recently conquered nation. The Haitian Revolution is known to be the largest and most successful slave rebellion in the Western Hemisphere. Slaves initiated the rebellion in 1791 and by 1803 they had succeeded in ending not just slavery but French control over the colony. The Haitian Revolution, however, was much more complex, consisting of several revolutions going on simultaneously.
Bartolome’ de la Casas in the sixteen century, published an eloquent defense of Indian rights about maltreatment of the indigenous peoples of the Americas in colonial times.

He participated in campaigns in Bayamo and Camagüey and in the massacre of Hatuey. He witnessed many atrocities committed by Spaniards against the native Ciboney and Guanahatabey peoples.
America’s discovery and the formation of Triangular Trade between Europe, Africa, and the Americas drove many new advancements in technology and economics. For example, inflation caused the capitalism’s popularity to rise, new goods were discovered, and European empires thrived. As the Europeans discovered, the Americas contained many resources such as silver, gold, spices, and other valuable goods that were sold to make a surplus of profit. Later on, such resources were farmed using African American slave labor. Quote A exemplifies the benefits for many upper class Europeans and American slave owners.
When you hear the phrase, “The Terrible Transformation”, what do you think it means. The Terrible Transformation was the largest forced migration in recorded history. However, this mass movement was an instrumental in the creation of America; England joined the international trade of human being, after establishing settlements in North America. Millions of African Americans are abducted from their homelands, to labor in North American colonies. Their first battle they must face, is the horrific trip across the Atlantic, also known as the “middle passage”; this trip over the Atlantic is so horrible that least a quarter of them die.
In around 1607 to 1763, the mother country, England began enforcing many political and economic goals in the American colonies. In order to establish dominance and superiority, the British government believed that by enforcing certain values and order into the American colonies, it would lead to the enrichment of the mother country. The English Government enforced strict values onto the American colonies, depriving the colonists from their right, which led to the increase of smuggling and the rebellion from the colonists. The English government had enforced Navigational Acts in order to control the Americans trading rights.
Europeans settlers attempted to impose, religion, language, culture to the Native Americans that owned and live in the region for generation as a result, the settlers found a strong opposition to the involuntary assimilation. This method was not new; every “Conquistador” used the same system in many other nations in The Americas where they went as far as killing many tribes and having natives as slaves, to accomplish their purposes. I don’t believe that it was about having natives to assimilate their culture, language or way of living; the real reason was to subdue the Natives to be able to accomplish their many economic plans like mines, railroad and agriculture, a clear example are the tragedy at Wounded Knee. The Native Americans in most
