Also, many crimes were committed by those who were at administration of countries which Alexander had conquered. These crimes consisted of being acted improperly to Holy places such as temples and tombs. These governors were at their own master to govern their cities by taking advantage of the new conquests by Alexander because he had to undertake the expedition to India for a long time. They didn’t think that Alexander couldn’t return his home safely because he and his armies had to cope with difficult conditions in Gadrosia. Other important anecdote is worded as follows in the
For many years India struggled greatly for their independence. The three major events in the Indian fight against British rule were: the Golden Temple Massacre, the Salt March, and the homespun movement. During the Temple Massacre British and Gurkha troops killed at least 379 unarmed Indians meeting at the Jallianwala Bagh, to discuss nonviolent resistance and protest. However, the British had passed a law that said they were forbidden from encouraging and having meetings about nonviolent protests. The Salt March, which took place in India, was an act of civil disobedience.
More than twenty-five hundred Indians participated in the revolt. Some of the Pueblo Indians mocked and smeared with excrement the Spaniards churches, religious painting and statutes, while others like the Zunis and the Kewa left the churches without damage and “respectfully preserved the ornaments of divine worship” (Lienbmann, 2012). Yet, all the fighters sought to remove all the Spaniards out of their lands. They concluded the eviction of the Spaniards by setting a siege in the capital and leaving the Spaniards in there without water or food for several days until Governor Otermín order the Spanish to withdraw from fighting and leave to El Paso (Sayre,
This shows that although the Empress made reforms they were inadequate and were only introduced to “please both the Chinese people and foreign invaders.” (I) The Empress’ reforms were desperate, limited and failed to positively alter the middle and working class majority in China consequently leading to more unrest. The Empress’ intentions were not to develop the dynasty but to maintain power by gaining support from the internal and external community but she failed to do
For instance, the reforming efforts were undermined when Prince Gong, who had been willing to cooperate with the Westerners and recognised the need for change, was replaced with the incompetent and conservative Prince Chun. In addition, Empress Cixi constantly oscillated between reform and reaction, giving no consistent backing to the provincial reform efforts. Large amounts of capital for the self-strengthening movement were also diverted for her extravagant purposes, thus creating further setbacks for the modernising efforts. Therefore, the consequence of China’s political reforms was that the lack of a common vision amongst the officials led to lack of focus in changing policies, thus little change could be enacted. In conclusion, China’s attempt to modernise ultimately failed because of the lack of coordination amongst the officials and the people.
After the Spanish fleet was dealt with and were no more, it had opened up the best opportunity to gain control of the Philippines. One of the thoughts in president McKinley’s mind was that he did not want America’s adversaries such as, France or Germany,
During the third voyage, people began to not like Columbus’ rule and were hostile towards him. According to The 4 Explorations of Christopher Columbus, “The dispute was resolved when Ferdinand and Isabela appointed Francisco de Bobadilla as royal commissioner, with powers above those of Columbus himself.” Whenever Bobadilla gained control, Columbus was arrested for his crimes and sent back to Spain. After most of his charges were dropped, Columbus made his fourth and final voyage to the Americas. Upon arrival, Columbus knew a storm was going to hit, and warned the governor of Santo Domingo that he should not allow some ships out of port at that time and requested to dock his ships there. They did not allow it, so Columbus found a place for his ships to safely anchor while all but one of the ships in the fleet
These new markets reached all around the globe, providing products that were only found in the Philippines. Wanting peace to end the war is another similarity that was shared. The fighting of the Spanish-American war had taken a great toll on both of the nations, so “a peace treaty was signed between the United States and Spain which officially turned over to the United States the islands of Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines” (“The Philippines Ends Its Uprising”). One last similarity that was shared is that both nations provoked an uprising from the native Filipinos because all that they wanted was their independence. Americans and Spaniards alike fought through war and suffering trying to keep control over the Philippines.
According to Wikipedia “After the three good Emperors, the remaining Emperors ruled badly and again wasted a lot of money and soldiers. In the west, the Europeans betrayed the Byzantines and attacked their capital, Constantinople. The Byzantines lost their capital in 1204 and they did not take it back until 1261. The Byzantines were then divided into many smaller Greek states that were fighting with each other for the throne of the Empire.”Therefore which means that we don’t need to study byzantine because Byzantine empire collapsed by himself. In other words we also could say that because of fight inside of byzantine empire they wasn't able to survive from other attacks.In response to this argument I would like to argue back still it is worth because there isn't any history source we can’t learn.
Eventually, the Filipinos then realized that the treatment of the colonizers to its colony is not fair and should not be tolerated. Another question that Dr Jose Rizal gave much attention to was whether or not Spain can indeed prevent the progress of the Philippines. Dr Jose Rizal mentioned 3 main points: Keeping the Filipinos ignorant have failed for national consciousness had still awakened, keeping the Filipinos impoverished wasn’t successful and decreasing the population to hinder progress did not work as well. “With these questions, it is necessary to presume an unlimited period of time, and in accordance therewith try to forecast future
