Moreover, document six shows the trading routes from different European countries and resources traded. It demonstrates that many riches come into Europe from the Age of Exploration. This increase in wealth and European power, caused by the Age of Exploration, was an accomplishment that set off the Renaissance. Document nine strengthens this argument by showing all the negative coming to the Americas while the great supplies are traveling to Europe. In contrast to document six, document nine has many of the diseases and shows that Europe is benefiting the most in this trade network.
The step he made when traveling with his crew to the Americas changed the world that they lived in for good. The opportunities in America advanced Europe's society because they had new cultures to trade with and a variety of resources that would improve it's economy. Columbus’ journey provided a unique opportunity of exposure to new people, which helped the peoples of Europe to become more cultured. Because of the new sea routes discovered, trade could expand to farther places. The Europeans were making money off of cash crops planted in the fertile land, which helped them to become more powerful.
Some will even argue that his conversion to Christianity was to gain more power and create more man power to take over more land. Regardless of what his motive was this was a big deal for several Christians living in Europe at this time. Constantine conversion to Christianity allowed people to the religion to be able to spread throughout Europe even after the fall
The English prospered from this because it meant that had excluded those raw materials from trade with other countries. This act also then led to triangular trade which allowed for trade between Europe, Africa and America. The triangular trade was a system in which slaves, crops and manufactured goods were traded. It was implemented to rectify trade imbalances between regions. Triangular trade led to world economy growing rapidly as more goods were being made and traded more than ever before.
The necessity for this better network to move goods manifested itself in this desire for improvement. After the War of 1812, demand increased for better roads and canals to expedite the transport of goods across the nation (Dudley). This improved package of commerce and transportation directly contradicted the attitude of Agrarian Republicans like Jefferson who hoped that industrialization would not dominate America or its politics, fearing the inevitable shift of the country into continuous international turmoil. Jefferson’s fear was realized as nationalism manifested itself in manufacturing, with patriotic Americans taking pride in the factories that had recently mushroomed forth (Dudley). After the war, many Americans felt differently due to the war’s stimulative effect on the economy.
The European exploration happened due to God, glory, gold, and advanced technology. God led to exploration because they wanted to spread Christianity. Glory led to exploration because they wanted to be know as an explorer. Gold led to exploration because they wanted to trade with other countries to get money in return for valuable items or get valuable items in return for money. But the most influential thing that led to exploration was advanced technology.
Along with ships, new navigational tools also helped sailors to travel more safely in the open seas. By the end of the 15th century, the compass improved a lot. Sailors used compasses to find their bearing, or direction of travel. The Printing press helped spread scientific discoveries and it was faster than writing by hand. The Cartography of maps improved and became more accurate as the sailors explored and found the flaws in the old maps.
European nations involved in the trading system with the wealthy nations of Asia, Africa and the New World, wanted better and more effective routes of transportations. This urge for territorial acquisitions pushed the governments to acquire new advances in shipbuilding and navigation, hence began the expeditions. The Europeans powers began to strive for control of the New World almost immediately after Christopher Columbus announced the earth earth-shattering of the discovery of the New World in 1492. During the missionary duty the Spanish and
While the Filipinos sought independence after being released from Spain, the U.S. perceived the nation as incompetent. William McKinley, the 25th President of the United States, in his decision on the Philippines mentions that they are ill-equipped to run a self-government and any attempt to do so will cause misfortune in the region, thus, the United States has no option but to rule over the Philippines. This concept of racial uplift influenced the treatment of Filipino citizens during and after the war, as Shi states the blatant racism and torture they experienced during the three years of war and after hindered any peaceful bonds between the two nations. After the Filipino resistance was reduced, the United States acquired the Philippines to mark its next bitter, controlling relationship with a foreign
From the article of railroads,“Not only did the railways provide greater opportunity through extending markets, they also stimulated more people to start businesses and thereby enter the markets. An extended marketplace provided a greater number of individuals the opportunity to produce and sell goods.” (Kelly) Opportunity overpowers the negative factor of the architecture and locomotives being unfriendly to the environment. Another positive factor that outdoes the negative is the advantages of mass production. In the article about nineteenth century architecture,“While the battle of styles was engaging the energies of the architects, great changes were introduced in industry. Mass production became possible in glass, iron and later steel” (19th Century Architecture).
