Prior to European colonization, Aboriginal people were calm in nature, and a revolution would not have been their main course of action. They only had small violent revolutions such as, the battle of Batoche. They instead pushed for their rights to be met, which led the bourgeoisie to become frustrated. The settlers no longer wanted Aboriginal people on their new established land, and found them to be an obstacle with differing values, language, customs and traditions. The European settlers wanted to keep their positions of power, thus something needed to change rapidly.
In conclusion, the early settlement of the Europeans shaped America to be the country it is today. Though it was hard, we achieved everything we have today because of them. Through their struggles, they made a strong and stable country. There were ups and downs to the settlement, but that doesn't change how we are today. When settlers came to explore and settle the Americas, it changed their life drastically and without them we wouldn't be where we are
Adversity breaks one down until they can be broken no more, and although adversity has a negative connotation, overcoming adversity can make one stronger, turning it into a positive. When America was discovered and colonized, the indigenous peoples faced real hardships. Americans disliked anything that wasn’t European culture so they tried to eliminate tribal identities and assimilate the Native Americans into their culture. They outlawed certain Indian rituals such as the Ghost Dance and forced Indian children to speak English instead of their native languages. The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased.
This meant the Chesapeake Bay colonies could not grow cash crops. Instead, they would have family farms where they would only grow food for themselves. Their religion also helped shape the colony. The Pilgrims had left England because they believed the Anglican Church was corrupted, and it contained too many Roman Catholic beliefs. The Pilgrims were also religiously intolerant of other religions, and believed that theirs were the correct religion.
The rapid industrialization of the United States brought many changes to its people. New technologies, inventions, and the railroad brought better fuels, stronger steels, changed the way people lit their homes, and even changed the way people did their shopping. The integrated railroad was especially exciting, because it would allow people to move from the west coast to the east coast as they pleased. Economic development was also on the rise, especially in the west. Americans were excited to discover and tame the “wild west”, eager to claim a piece of land that they could call their own.
The Old World brought invasive plant and animal species into the New World. The native species had no natural predators. When the new animals were introduced, the native species decreased immediately because of lack of protection against the foreign species. Animals such as cows and pigs were herbivores. Because of this, native herbivores had to compete for food with the foreign species.
Europe’s economy deeply excelled during these years, which turned this country into an economic role model. This religious dispute encouraged noblemen to gain their independence from powerful lords who sold them their land. This system was unfair and only made these men even more powerful than they already were. The pope helped them realize that they deserved better, and he also helped them understand reforms. Europe was influenced by Muslim customs and food cultures that eventually stuck with them over the years that these two religious battled for the holy land.
One Man’s Vision Against a World’s View During the 1600’s the world changed drastically due to the widely held belief that expanding empires would lead to great fortune and world domination. William Penn, an Englishman who was inspired to build a community tailored to his Quaker beliefs (that of the “friendly neighbor), wrote an invitation to his English compatriots regarding the land he saw and his ideas of that land. In “Letters to the Free Society of Traders” (1683) Penn wrote of the land, the plants, and the people favorably. He saw a community of potential and prosperity, referring to his colony as a “holy experiment.” William Penn was relentlessly compelled to create a way of life that was tolerant of all religious and ethnic backgrounds,
Causes of Imperialism The acceleration of Imperialism during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that greatly impacted the world, is due to multiple economic, political, and social forces. Imperialism, a policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force, was becoming drastically more and more important for European and Asian countries. Ultimately, the advancements during the Industrial Revolution made Imperialism easier, and on a very large scale for many European countries. Although there were many factors that contributed to Imperialism by ways of economic, political, and social forces, some proved to be more significant and influential than others. Since the beginning of religion, missionaries have attempted to spread religion and their beliefs on others.
Triangular trade led to world economy growing rapidly as more goods were being made and traded more than ever before. In conclusion both religious factors and economic factors played a huge role in the colonization of America, but in different ways. The British wanted to ensure economic dominance through their powerful monarch. The new settlers came seeking a better life, along with wanting to create a society based on freedom. To each their
