The primary goal of Britain in establishing earlier settlements along the Northern coast is solely for trade. The raw materials gathered from areas in New England like Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and the Rhode Islands were processed into finished goods (“Northern Colonies”). These good were then shipped back to the colonies for profits (Brands et al, 33). Being more industrialized than the Southern counterpart, the northern colonies were well known as center for transport of natural resources such as furs and timbers (“Northern Colonies”). One of the major differences between these colonies is the role of religion (Brands et al, 39, 41 - 42).
The first thing Gustav did when the Danish were forced out was to impose taxes on the church. There were debts to Lubeck that needed to be paid and the Catholic church had the money to do it. This would later lead to the reformation in Sweden. Aside from having debts to pay off, Vasa didn't quite like the idea of a power that had just as much or more than what he had as king, though, he did sympathize with the need of church services. This led to the spread of Lutheranism throughout the country but Sweden didn't accept it as the national religion until 1544, because of the change to Lutheranism, there was a revolt from 1542 to 1543, started by Anti-Lutheran's.
Violence, gore, and war engulf the Norseman’s way of life. Interchangeably known as heathens, pagans, Vikings (when raiding) and Norsemen, Europeans constructed various perspectives towards these individuals. Directly translated, Norsemen means people from the north, which refers to an immense group of people who spoke Old Norse. According to “On the Causes of Viking Expansion”, Dudo of St Quentin describes the Norsemen inhabiting Central and Southern Scandinavia, more specifically the area between the Danube and Scythian sea during the eighth Century. Adam of Bremen describes a drastic alteration of Norse society in “The Conversion of the Danes Under Harald Bluetooth” as individuals convert from pagans into Christian crusaders around twelfth
A precipitating factor would be that the colonists still valued English protection and feared the Catholic colony of New France who were fighting for fur trade. While the English colonies were preoccupied with the Glorious Revolution, French forces of the fur trade were seen attacking New York and New England. This developed into what is known as King William's War, which illustrated the conflict against France in Europe. It was caused by colonial outgrowth and lasted until 1697. The conflict is seen as a distinguishing mark that along with the English royal government there also came the weight of military security.
Racial differentiation has been formed throughout history to create and reinforce structures of power. The British as well as the United States have implemented laws to stop others from reining on their hierarchy of power. In the late nineteenth century really hits on this idea, not only on immigration laws but also the impression of prostitution and Venereal Disease. According to the book, “Race Over Empire: Racism and U.S. Imperialism, 1865-1900,” by Eric T. Love, talks about how race has moved, shaped, and inspired the late-nineteenth-century U.S.
The essay develops in how West European involved with Christian merchants from Ottoman Empire created difference between Muslims and Christians. Many people in Ottoman Empire kept loyalty to the imperialism that threatened the empire because they were at war. This article help further develop the argument how outsiders influenced Ottoman Empire and those influenced leaded onto a genocide. Hindley, Meredith, “German Responsibility in the Armenian Genocide,” review of of the Historical Evidence of German Complicity by Dadrian, Vahakn N, Watertown: Blue Crane Books 1996.

By doing this she helped show that even though you may be a women you can still make a big difference. She showed that you can make a difference no matter what. You can alway do something with a positive effect. Lucy Flucker Knox was a brave and honest women. She never gave up and was optimistic.
This sort of ethnic cleansing and weakening can be seen through all walks of ultranationalistic history, and example being Stalin and the weakening of the Ukrainian anti-authoritarian fervour, through famine. The famine might not have been illegal bombs dropped on a nation’s capital, but it still had the same effect. From the other side, it can be argued that Georgia was only trying to get back a breakaway province, that is for the good of the country, that this simply was an act of nationalism. To counter this way of thinking we must be able to see where nationalism end and where ultranationalism starts. Nationalism is the supporting of a country’s culture, one or many and the embracing of all in the
The Cult of Domesticity goal was to involve women in the public world where they had no status. Angelina Grimke states, “Now, I believe it is woman’s right to have a voice in all the laws and regulations by which she is governed, whether in Church or State”(Doc. C). This quote further shows that women didn’t have many rights beyond the home even though they belonged to her as much as they did to a man. Women expressed their grievances through writing to reveal the reality of their life.
While some Viking age Scandinavians were berserkers and warriors the majority were traders and explorers with an extensive trade network that covered all of modern Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Northern India, and even some parts of China. During the Viking age the economy of Europe was changed from a simple exchange of goods type system into a mercantile and market based system. The Viking raids in the 9th and 10th centuries took a heavy toll on the stability and political development of ancient Europe. The Scandinavian attackers caused much fear in the populations of Europe and historians at the time were usually priests who saw the pagan Scandinavians as marauders and murders, which they were largely in their primary interactions with the outside world. Additionally the Church, was an extremely rich and defenseless target for the raiders and may have been more frequently targeted than many other parts of European kingdoms.
The nomadic style of the Mongols would prevent them from deeming anything they plundered in Asia useful to them, so they send it west via the Silk Road to trade in Europe. Development resumed and alternate routes were found across the Indian Ocean, which allowed for large amounts of goods to be shipped much more safely, directly to Europe. This would be the slingshot that gets Europe out of the Middle Ages a few hundred years later with the development of gunpowder, and the printing press. Gunpowder would give central government much more power and remove power from nobles, and the printing press would facilitate the spread of information much faster to many more people. Nobles knew they were getting pinched out of power, mentioned in the Bohemund at Antioch, “At last, all the noble leaders who were at Constantinople were assembled.
Pushing then further North and West. If the French wanted power they would have done as the Spanish and stored their riches and stock piled. New France could have flourished in the New World although there main concern with them would have took their gold and cached it. Although freedom to practice their religious faith was a major factor in the French setting sail to the New World it was not the only reason. The French in the New World decided to trade with the Native Indians tribes in the area for fishes off the coast and for fur.
It has always been an enigma as to why the various European Empires of England, France and others tried to colonize North America. The distance between North America and Europe was quite vast, and there were abundant resources in South America. In addition, the first attempts by these European Empires to colonize North America ended in failure as the North American winters were too harsh, resulting in many settlers not surviving their first winters there. However, it was very important that these colonial powers did not abandon the idea of colonizing North America. You have to speculate, and ponder for what reason did European Empires not give up trying to colonize North America and instead focus their efforts further south where the resources
The information you showcase regarding the United States’ movement westward is very intuitive. Additionally, the information you showcase about the massacre of the Native American people during westward expansion is something that people often avoid discussing. Furthermore, the information regarding the governments’ incentive packages for moving west highlights how desperate the United States is to settle the new land. Now, consider that the military massacred hundreds of Native Americans, do you believe that those men should have stood trial for war crimes? Also, do you believe the government’s incentive packages are a contributing factor to settler’s clashes with Native Americans?
