The Spanish then went on to kill and capture Incan soldiers and Atahualpa probably realised then that the Spanish were after gold and silver and were not there for peace. Atahualpa actually offered them rooms full of gold and silver as a ransom for them to let him go but sadly he was never granted his freedom and was eventually killed on August 29, 1533 (The Fall of the Inca Empire). After taking control of the city Cajamarca the Spanish went on to capture the capital, Cusco and there they picked Atahualpa's brother as the new Sapa Inca giving them a puppet that they could control to their will. The Spanish conquest was the breaking point for the empire because it completely destroyed the empire pushing it to its fall. However, there was still one factor that ruined the Inca empire but didn’t push it because it was a civil war between two brothers within the
The same hostilities were found in New Mexico, Naranjo a priest led a revolt against the Spanish colonists. The natives secretly planned an attack against the Spanish, to their misfortune the secret of their attack was out and impulsively carried out an attack. Spanish priests, women and children were killed, the governor was their next target but he escaped with his life. Under the orders of Naranjo the natives burned the Spanish churches and everything that pertained to Christianity, even seizing cultivated lands of the Spanish back as their own. The natives were tired of the Spanish rule over them and sought to drive out the inhabitants and their faith to restore their religion and way of life once more.
In Latin America, the Spanish conquerors overworked the Indian natives and treated them harshly. The Spaniards broke apart families and relationships so that they would have limited contact with each other and would be forced to give up their customs. They were also required to learn Christianity (document 8). The native peoples’ land and space was invaded and they were required to do whatever the conquerors said, or else they would be punished. This era in history is a devastating time for an immense amount of people.

Men like Al Capone killed out their opponents to control their profits of the illegal goods. Like a monopoly, their greed made their illegal sales into a death race. I think that the passage of the Volstead Act and the ruling in the Scopes trial did represent genuine triumphs for traditional values. During the Scopes trial people were fighting for their religious beliefs because a biology teacher tried to teach his student the theory of evolution. Since the theory of evolution was completely against their traditional values, the process of the Scopes trial was justifiable.
When Okonkwo was faced with his enemies, he makes a rash decision and kills the messenger. This was a fateful act because it could urge Umuofia to attack the missionaries, but Umuofia decided to not go to war. Okonkwo explains how the white missionaries have come in and converted all the Igbo people into their religion until their own tribes become too weak to fight back against them.

The dance now explained that the Spanish Conquistadors disrespected their customs and sorcerers (divination) and in return the Maya show that they do not respect the power of the conquistadors (the sword). The dance is also transformed to show gang kidnapping that have been happening due to globalization, which iterates the struggles that the Maya faced in historical accounts with the Spanish arrival and the repression of their
In the previous years before the Mission San Luis Rey was even founded as an official mission, the destruction of the San Diego Mission occurred due to the native uprising against the Spanish forces invading their land. However, according to Father Junipero Serra, the natives were by far in the wrong with their actions to destroy the mission (Chan/Olin, 60). This argument is obviously one sided, but if the website for the San Luis Rey Mission mentioned the fact that the natives sometimes did not like the fact that they were being taken over by a force that merely controlled them with guns, it would most definitely affect their tourist income in numbers. In addition, the mission website is less likely to mention the fact that there were punishments for those natives who did reject the work or conversion to Catholicism. As mention in Francis F. Guest’s essay, “Cultural Perspectives on Death and Whipping in the Missions”, there were many instances in which the punishments for natives was excessive and superfluous.
He then ditched the city after finding out that spanish troops were coming to arrest him for disobeying the orders that were give to him.

These actions by the general completely disregarding the law, created by the republic, that stated that generals would not lead troops within Italy proper. This of course created civil war in which the senate of other leading generals disagreed with Caesar’s actions. But still the young Julius prevailed, he eventually defeated those who opposed him and with his belief that the republic would be served better with one unified ruler, he was appointed dictator by the state for a period of 10 years, (www.regent.edu. 6.). Julius never got to experience the full extent of those 10 years because, but a few short years later he was assassinated by multiple members of the senate, to include his good friend and confidant Brutus “et tu Brute,” (Shakespeare, Act 3 Scene 1).
