In Document I it said, “The French wanted to establish firm, long-lasting trading allies and so they spoke the Native language. In conclusion, America was the New World, and the settlers crossed the Atlantic for a better future. The French, English, and Spanish all crossed for the reasons, sources of colonial population, economic, and relations with the Native Americans. The significance of the English, French ,and Spanish explorers’ arrival to America is because it eventually lead to the establishment of the colonies. The colonies mostly English, lead to the start of America.
Isabella sponsored the voyage of Christopher Columbus which brought money to Spain and a new world. When Columbus discovered the new land they were given to Castile because of Isabella’s sponsorship. With the new world some Native Americans were sent to the new land to be slaves but Isabella disagreed with that and believed they should be treated fairly and with justice. Ferdinand and Isabella were parsons and they made Spain better by establishing buildings and institutions for education. Ferdinand and Isabella both knew Latin and they could read.
Imperialism is a policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force. It is a great way to strengthen the economy and gain power and territory for countries that practice it, though it often failed and resulted in war and the deaths of innocents. Four intellectuals that played a big part in influencing American imperialism were Frederick Jackson Turner, Alfred T. Mahan, Herbert Spencer and John Fisk. All of these influencers had different ideologies and came together to justify American imperialism. They believed America needed to expand power and gain territories.
Mercantilism was a system that encouraged Americans to trade among themselves instead of with outside powers by not taxing American Merchants and instead taxing merchants to import. Mercantilism aided in the development of America because America’s new economy and markets were sheltered from massive and foreign companies allowing a massive rate of growth for America's economy. The process of taxing foreign companies is known as protectionism which is directly involved with mercantilism and the strong belief in profitable trading that America possessed at the time. All three of these factors allowed America to grow at an extremely unprecedented rate in religion, politics, and
This was a way to allow them to still expand their empire while still being able to provide for their country men. The Inca believed in using force as a last resort. Which led them to grow so large while not having civil war but if you opposed them they would kill everything and one in sight whoever was left was sold into slavery.
Two different colonies that started out on the land of America around the same time period, Plymouth, and Jamestown; they sailed to America for the same reason, freedom. Known as the Puritans, Plymouth came to America for the freedom of religion, and they did not want to associate themselves with the Church of England. Similar to the Puritans, the Jamestown colonists arrived in the New World in search for gold, silver and precious stones. During the arrival these colonists expected to receive many goods from the America in exchange of a small amount of labor. Although the colonies have a similar desire coming to America, each colony' perspective toward the New World differed.
Christianity was an essential component for empires in 15th century Europe. Religion became a powerful driving factor for the Spanish to convert and colonize the Americas in a process they justified as divine duty. Invoking religion was not a simple solution to this controversy as it could be used with great efficiency by both sides. Although the Spanish conquistadors generally pressed the importance of converting the natives as a justification for their conquest, conversion being a core tenant of the faith, Bartolome de Las Casas highlighted the grievous sins committed by the conquistadors and how this fundamentally violated the precepts of the faith itself. Thus, mounting convincing challenge to the fidelity towards these religious principles.
The western countries said that they imperialized the country for the benefits of the colonized country and for improving the economics of the country. Yet, how can a country improve when they, the imperialists, took away all the goods? Native people had to migrate to villages or remote areas in search for occupation opportunities with higher wages because “high-paying jobs” were “filled by the British”. (Negative effects of Imperialism) In South Africa, British not only exacted the “natural resources” but also “force[d] slave laborers to plant peanuts cocoa and other cash crops” to export them to British at a lower price while selling them back to the Africans at a higher price (Economic Exploitation- Imperialism Throughout South Africa). Japan, for its lack of fundamental raw materials for industrialization including iron, coal and oil, invaded Korea to drain up their natural resources and wealth.
Hernan Cortes significantly contributed to the Renaissance by giving Spain money/ spreading Spanish culture and power, and encouraging exploration. Cortes earned Spain money by conquering Central and South America. It was cruel and horrible for the people living in the area, but it gave artisans (craftsperson), merchants, and artists who supplied Spain with goods. Another achievement Cortes is credited with is, spreading the rule of Spain; he conquered the Aztecs (if he hadn’t they may still be in our society and our history would be completely different. ), Cortes also built New Mexico in the New World.
The most notable, or remembered, viking that pops into people’s minds is Leif Eriksson, yet people don’t know much about who Leif Eriksson is exactly. In the article, “The Viking Explorer Who Beat Columbus to America” by Christopher Klein talks about Leif Eriksson and the voyage that led to Eriksson accidentally landing on North America because his ship got off course. “After crossing the Atlantic, the Vikings encountered a rocky, barren land in present-day Canada” (Klein p.4). While in this statement the vikings landed in Canada it can still be considered they made it to North America before Columbus ever did, but after the Native Americans arrived. Many people must also remember that this is not the only place that Eriksson landed when he traveled across oceans to spread the word about Christianity.
As it is clearly evident, in the siege of the Alhondiga if we work together in the name of equality to continue this struggle for independence, we can move towards a better future. Mexicans are tired of paying for oppressive taxes such as “alcabala”, “estanco” and other forms of tributes to the Spanish Crown. So like the father of the Mexican Independence movement, Miguel Hidalgo, perfectly said, “Viva Independencia! Viva America! Muera el mal
The way Americans conquered the new land were removing the Native Americans from their land. Religion played a big part in expansion of America. Americans believe that they had a future destined by God to expand both land and their religion. They also believed that they should control and populate the land as they see fit. Expansionist also believed that it was their responsiblity
spain, the most able government in Europe and the Americas, wished to enhance themselves with the New World 's trademark resources. In the wake of enslaving indigenous social orders in the Caribbean and the southern parts of the Americas to create and burrow for gold, silver, and distinctive assets, the Spanish moved into North America where they amassed their undertakings in what is by and by the southwestern and southeastern United States. Catholic priests drudged to change over the Indians to Christianity, and they experienced some accomplishment purifying through water and
In 1492, Christopher Columbus made a discovery that affected the lives of many different ethnic groups around the world, in the years to come. The Spanish were funding his trip were trying to find a quicker way to get to the ports of the Asia and Columbus thought that he could find it by sailing westward. Instead of finding said route, he instead found the West Indies and what would eventually become North and South America. Now this would lead the Spanish, French, and English to start colonizing the “unclaimed” ground in the New World. When the Spanish started to colonize the New World, the natives were first conquered but then eventually accepted into the Spanish hierarchy of things.
