Baca created an exhibition area within open spaces that is accessible to the public and was able to raise the voices of people who could not be heard and revive history marked by individuals who were deemed invisible. The mural was a major art project for Baca and was a life changing experience for her and for the fellow members who participated in the creation of the mural. The process in making the Great Wall took a lot of effort and time by a countless number of folks who range from scholars to minorities, but Baca brought all participants in the idea of unity.

Qin Shi Huang-Di has left a large impact on China, and by extension the world, that has lasted many years. Qin created the foundation of the Chinese country of today. Some scholars even believe that without Qin Shi Huang-Di, there would be no China at all (Gracie). Qin’s impact on the world was the creation of an entire country, a pretty impressive feat. Especially in his time, when nothing like China had ever been created before, his unification and reformation of China into a lasting country is inspiring. Qin is sometimes credited “with establishing the world’s first truly centralized bureaucratic empire” (Gracie). Furthermore, his format of a centralized bureaucratic empire would be the basis for many other empires and countries that would
The Great Wall was made by the Qin and Han dynasty's to keep out invaders and other enemies. The benefits did outweigh the cost because it kept your city protected, it was harder for invaders to attack.They also put troops in the frontier areas of the Wall to increase the security level.According to document A it states that "the government will construct walled cities, well protected by high walls, deep moats, catapults, and thorns." This shows that the Qin and Han wanted to make it harder for the mongols to attack and that china wanted to be prepared for when other dangerous situations happen.Another thing the Qin and Han dynasties made was to impress
The Great Wall of China was built by the soldiers and the peasants, but they were controlled by the Han and the Qin Dynasty. The Wall was meant the keep the Mongols (intruders) out . In fact, however the benefits did not outweigh the cost of The Great Wall of China. According to document C it states " soldiers were forced to leave families and villages for several years" and " tens of thousands soldiers died from hunger, sickness, and extreme heat or cold. " Also because the soldiers worked non stop they didn 't have time to harvest or grow anything so they died of starvation and loneliness, this means that the soldiers were forced to work against their will and were lonely
To add,many may believe that the benefits didn’t outweigh the costs because of the lives that were lost. “If we die,unburied,in the wilds,our corpses will feed the crows.” The Chinese workers lives were lost because while building the Great wall of china some structures had fell upon them leaving them dead.Although many people died during this building the benefits did outweigh the costs because it provided protection,glorified China, and helped the trading system.
The Qin and Han dynasty built the notorious wall we know today as The Great Wall of China. Although, The Great Wall of China has many benefits, but it does come with some costs. The benefits of the wall are great I do not think they out weigh the costs. For example, in document c, it states that they lost many people of their civilization.This means they would lose soldiers to protect the wall.That is not a good thing they need all those people to have an army.Now another cost that involved the wall was they would have less space and have not as much food which was code into document a.They would have to go out and risk there lives to find food and also go on a trek just for
The Great Wall came with many losses like all of the deaths but have you ever wondered what hey went brought? The people who built the wall went through many harsh conditions like a starvation, loneliness, boredom, the weather conditions, weakness, falling from the heights documents F, E, B. You never really starve or get lonely or bored now days because we have so much and we have a lo more freedom than what the people back then had, you cant talk with friends or text, no face time, no electronics. I still disagree with the wall being built because of he harsh conditions, the cost was greater than the benefits document F, B,
Qin Shi Huang-di is often regarded as a great leader within history. However, he was also paranoid and got rid of anyone who disagreed with him, but without Qin, there might be no China. Furthermore, despite his mixed reputation today, he brought six warring kingdoms together to form the basis of a country that has lasted to this day, an impressive feat that was a huge turning point in Chinese history. Qin’s effect on China and by default, on the other countries of the world was enormous. In fact, his dynasty, the Qin dynasty, even gave China its name (“Shi Huangdi Becomes Emperor”). His influence on the world has lasting impacts even today, though it has been over two thousand years since he lived. Qin Shi Huang-Di was a cruel but effective
The Yuan Dynasty under the Mongol empire has an extensive amount of public works as they built granaries to protect the dynasty from famine, and created large road and water networks. These public works allowed for the people to have large surplus of food and water and also be able to travel in a more organized manner with the road system created (New World Encyclopedia, Country Studies). Everyone in the Yuan dynasty had access to these public works as they were used to the economy and to keep everyone fed. While having these very useful public works the Yuan dynasty also had lots of techniques using technology for warfare and engineering. While using new warfare technology from the Chinese the Yuan were able to create a strategy to take down fortification by studying the way forts were made. The Yuan also discovered purified saltpetre, gunpowder bombs, printing techniques, porcelain, playing cards and medical literature the Yuan leaders were lazy

The Panama Canal and The Great Wall Of China shares many similarity and differences. A difference that both have is when they were created. The Panama Canal was created in 1914, while the Great Wall was created as early as 220 BC! Although it was created so early, there was more to come from the walls. Another difference that both share are is that they were created for separate purposes. The Great Wall was created so that any intruders trying to come into the land, would be stopped by the wall. The Panama Canal though, was created so that travel could be easier through the Americas. Both of these were not fully put into what was originally planned for them though, and this is what brings me into the similarities.
