The 19th century was an era of unbridled Imperial expansion with European colonies established all over the world. In the last quarter of the 19th century there were a number of wars and expeditions that saw the creation and expansion of colonial empires such as the French expeditions to Vietnam, Tunisia and Morocco, the conquest of the Congo by the Belgians, British expansion to India, Egypt, Sudan and South Africa and finally German and Italian expansion in Africa. The 19th century was also an era of rapidly accelerating scientific discovery and invention which gave European powers an advantage over native populations. This rapid expansion of European Empires across the globe has lead scholars to explore and consider the the reasons why this occurred.
The trade routes that appeared during this era in the Atlantic Ocean were collectively known as the Great Circuit. The routes connected four continents: North America, South America, Europe, and Africa, and they linked directly to the old water trade routes established in previous eras. The Atlantic routes were generally circular and complex, with most ships making several stops along the way on at least two of the continents, but sometimes more. During this era between 1450 and 1750 some of the old feudal kings amassed enough power to allow their kingdoms to sponsor the expensive sea voyages necessary for colonization in the New World. Three powerful countries that emerged were Spain, England, and France.

Throughout history, we have explored and conquered new lands, stamping the American flag into the earth and claiming it as ours — even if the rightful owners disagree. These feats have enabled us to assert ourselves throughout the world, settling communities and influencing those around us. In doing so, our ancestors refined distinct societies, adapting to the terrain and operating accordingly. Our efforts were not invariably supported, however, and disputes arose among those who were indigenous to the lands we thought ours. Thus, the Chesapeake and New England colonies developed separate societies with varying economies and social characteristics as a result of geographical resources and labor systems, despite sharing similar relations
The Spanish conquest of the Americas started in 1492 after Christopher Columbus found the new land under the crown of Spain. The Spanish explored and conquered most of the land in what is present day South America, Central America and Mexico. The expeditions most notable leaders were Hernan Cortes and Francisco Pizarro. The Spanish fought many different tribes in the Americas, such as the Inca empire and the Aztec empire. What made this conquest of the new land even possible, were the vast advantages the Spanish had compared to the native tribes of the land.

Imperialism, "the policy where a country increases its power by gaining control over other areas of the world", was a very common government policy beginning in the late 15th century (Merriam-Webster). A sub-category of the large term, imperialism, is colonization, which is where people from the powerful country actually go and live in the conquered territory. Europeans were the first to engage in this international activity, and some very large powers emerged, one of the biggest being Britain. Britain had many imperial relationships spanning multiple continents including Asia, Africa, and North America. One of their most impactful, both positive and negative, relationships was with America.
