In 1492, Columbus sailed for a long time and discovered what he thought was the East Indians. Hence, he insisted that the people who lived there were Indians, and considered the peaceful continent as New World. During that time, there was an unbelievable event called The Columbian Exchange that connected the Europeans and Native Americans, and this is a great exchange that includes the exchange of commodities, people, diseases and ideas around the Atlantic World especially horses, African Americans, liberty and syphilis had a lasting influence on both the Old World and the New World. When the Europeans came to the Americas, they brought commodities to exchange, including horses, and the horses transformed the Indians’ lives. The horses disappeared for a long time in the Americas after the Ice Age until the Europeans came and brought horses to the New World.
The “Columbian Exchange” also known as The Great Exchange occurred during the 15th and 16th centuries. It consisted of the transfer and/or trade of animals, culture, plants as well as humans such as the slave trade. From potatoes to chocolate and everything in between many foods and spices were transferred during the “Columbian Exchange” and ultimately became prominent food items. Additionally, livestock as well as other domesticated animals were also transferred changing the ways of many cultures for the better. However, during this trade several diseases were unintentionally transferred as well.
The “Columbus Exchange” is the exchange of technology, diseases, animals, and plants between Europe and the Americas. Technology was in the sense of equipment and tools brought over on boats by the explorers. It dependent on the origin of the explorer on what equipment was brought. The plow to help uproot the ground to plant the numerous plants and vegetables brought over. The Native Americans were not civilized as the Europeans and they lacked a lot of tools to mass produce buildings, houses, boats, and farm the lands.
The individuals from the Virginia Colony and the Massachusetts Bay Colony came to the new country for both very similar reasons, the main reason being so that they could have freedom within their colonies and to be free from the church and practice their own religion. The puritans and the pilgrims from the Netherlands but they wanted their children to keep the English traditions. The fishing and hunting conditions were not good in this area. Some colonists traded American Indians corn for beaver fur. The economy was bad because the king raised taxes but when they started making the tobacco plantations helped the economy out.
The Columbian Exchange was exchange of crops, animals and diseases from the Old World to the New World. The exchange seems mutually beneficial, with the Old World getting new crops such as tobacco, and the New World getting the basic cereal crops which the Old World survived on for centuries and livestock such as horses and cattle, but along with all the valuable crops and animals also came disease. The main reason why the Columbian Exchange came to be was the explorer, Christopher Columbus, discovered the Americas when searching for India, and other Europeans subsequently followed his path to the New World. Columbus was looking for India and the Spice Islands, which had, hence it name, many spices that could be sold for a huge profit back
Columbus and the travelers that trailed him altered all that. From Europe explores brought various farm animals, some examples included chickens, cattle, and horse to the Americas and returned to Europe with different vegetables, for example, items like tomatoes, potatoes and various other species that had never been introduced to Europe. This exchange transformed both the Americas and Europe, according to Loewen. When Europeans introduced horses to the Indigenous people, it would go on to change the Indigenous people 's culture; this permitted them to move more freely
The Columbian Exchange had a great impact on the Americas and Europe. It would seem as Europe was a more established civilization compared to the Americas. The land in Europe was manmade. In which they had many sources for foods such as farming, hunting, and fishing. Europeans relied on grains, wheat, rye and farming, in which the Americas did not.
Immediately following Columbus ' arrival in the New World in 1492, a mass exchange of people, animals, and microscopic life between the Eastern and Western Hemispheres began. This transition brought about extremely dramatic consequences because the Old and New Worlds had previously been completely isolated from each other. Although there were some insignificant results of this exchange, such as certain species of animals and plants taking over foreign ecosystems, there were also devastating ramifications; namely, perilous diseases. The Europeans were immune to the diseases which they introduced to the Natives. This created a virgin soil epidemic, which is an outbreak in which the afflicted had not been exposed to before.
Earthworms had long been extinct in North America since the Ice Age but started spreading back there following Columbus’ voyage, in result they greatly changed landscapes; aerating soil, making it easier for some plants to thrive, while diminishing others habitats. As a result, the earthworm started transforming America, as did another item, tomatoes. The common culture is most certain that Marinara sauce made with tomatoes must have originated from Italy, but in fact the commodity was actually indigenous to Mexico and only brought over to Europe in the sixteenth century. Without the mass dispersion of products throughout the globe sparked by Columbus we wouldn’t have the cultural diffusion that shows such presence on todays society. Due to the Columbian Exchange two completely separate biological worlds were able to unite and form a new civil society that has the ability to prosper through trade and indifference.
Many voyages to American to retrieve goods, caused the trade of goods, animals, plants, and ideas. This movement is known as the Columbian Exchange. Although goods, animals, and such are harmless the most important thing that was brought to America was “Old World” diseases. Just like the redwood forest, that once stretched from the Rockies to the Pacific, and the once numerous bison, the Native Americans almost disappeared. When new diseases were introduced to the Natives, their bodies weren’t able to fight them off.
APUSH SUMMER ASSIGNMENT 2016 – PART THREE – COLUMBIAN EXCHANGE The Columbian Exchange refers to a period of cultural and biological exchanges between the New and Old Worlds, which mostly took place during the 15th and the 16th centuries. Exchanges of plants, animals, diseases and technology transformed European and Native American ways of life. This phenomenon was a result of an accidental voyage from Christopher Columbus on 1492. Christopher Columbus was Italian explorer who, under the auspices of the Catholic monarchs of Spain- King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel, accidentally bumped into the Americas whilst finding a way to Asia from the west. He was the reason why the Colombian exchange took place, which led to mass demographic alterations in both the Old World and the New World.

The MIA was designed to go hand in hand with the Pure Food and Drug Act, which was created at the same time as the Meat Inspection Act in 1906. The Meat Inspection Act and the Pure Food and Drug Acts weren’t the only things that improved the meat packing industries. The new workmen’s comp laws also made things better both for the corporations and the workers. Before the Progressive Movement, work spaces were very cramped and there was poor lighting and many young children (Hine, “Seafood Workers”). These factors combined to make for disorderly working conditions causing
