The power that Alexander had got him stronger armies, because everyone listened to the king, no one could not do what the king said because that is against laws and punishments would be given. Stronger armies also can get you more land which means you can get more money with the growth of crops. Also wit stronger armies, Alexander can use his phalanx strategy and his smart tactics to defeat larger armies than the Persian
The Mongol soldiers were very disciplined, which enabled them to give it their all and work together to defeat their enemy. They were also very organized as they tried to save their energy by dividing their forces. This way they could take turns fighting and get some time to rest. If they were still unable to capture the fortress they would use the fat from dead bodies to make an unextinguishable fire. (Document 3)
Before Genghis came along, the Mongols acted like barbarians through their constant tribal rivalries and fightings; however, with Genghis’s strong-willed attitude and his strive for change, he was able to humanize and lead his people. For an example, unlike Khan’s predecessors, he “elevated men based on their abilities, courage and loyalty to him. If a man showed courage in battle and cunning in tactics, he’d find himself rapidly promoted.”. The quote demonstrates how the Mongols had a new system where they had to earn their military position and it gave them the drive to be a trustworthy and honorable soldier. Originally, Mongols were given positions based on birth, but Khan changed that and therefore Mongols became morally developed.
Several systems were established to increase productivity and maintain order. According to chronicler Inca Garcilazo de la Vega, the Inca society mainly based their coexistence in three main rules: Ama Sua (do not steal), Ama Llulla (do not lie) and Ama Quella (do not be lazy). As a result, crime was practically non existent. However, a strong “ethic of justice” was predominant among society leaders.
A perfect example of these Apaches was the Mescalero Apaches which helped the American military achieve its goals during the war. The devotion and commitment that the Native Americans showcases paints the image of a community that overlooked past resentments and disappointments. They would have opted to count themselves as a minority group but instead approached the battleground in full force. It is this evident that the Native Americans understood the benefits of defending one’s own land in times of crisis. When the Pearl Harbor was attacked, a population of 5,000 Native Americans was active in the battleground.
When the Spanish first arrived, they were in awe of the architecture of the Aztecs and this amazement may have contributed to them possibly respecting the Aztec people at first for their accomplishments. Differences in religion, sparked most of the aggressive behavior of the Spanish towards the Aztecs. They saw the human sacrifices and other practices of the Aztec religion as barbaric. This caused them to view the Aztecs as inferior and ultimately as enemies against their faith. With that state of mind, it was no longer necessary for the Spanish to try to peacefully deal with the Aztecs.
Cortes proved extremely capable of utilizing this enmity to gain the support of indigenous communities. This support came in numerous forms, such as providing the supplies that the Spanish needed to sustain themselves and launch their attack on the Mexica. This aid also came in the form of a massive amount of manpower, both for labor and as warriors. In this way the Spanish were neither as isolated nor as outnumbered as is popularly portrayed.
There are always two sides of an argument, in this case for ratifying the constitution there were the Federalist and the Anti-Federalist. Federalist wanted to ratify the constitution because a powerful government would help many individuals under it, “The constitution would find its supporters among the farmers and workingmen of the nation, of course. Urban artisans and small shopkeepers saw the advantages of a government powerful enough to increase commerce and trade. And backcountry subsistence farmers facing hostile Indians and their Spanish allies on state borders saw the virtue in a government strong enough to repel frontier enemies or negotiate favorable international treaties”(pg 173). Furthermore, the only people that opposed it were the wealthy and educated which were the very few in the nation, they even wanted a new constitution but not the one being
He was the emperor who receives god like worshipped by everyone. The emperor power was great however; he could be remove from power. The Aztec government did not rule with an iron fist, as many would believe. The power of the empire did not reach every stump of the people lives those tribe that were conquer were force to pay tribute yet, they had certain amount of freedom (Placeholder1). Although, the people had freedom, too break the laws would result in harsh punishment.
This was a battle where the players were merciless until someone was hurt. Then with good intentions, someone would help the injured player up and the game would continue. In this war it wasn 't about territory or money or rebelliousness. It was about winning.
To make an assumption that either style of fighting is more superior, even knowing them, is going to be highly opinionated. The truth is that either style could win you a battle if other standards are met. Certain factors include, the morale of the troops, how well your men respect your leadership, and what enemy you’re facing, and the list goes on and on. The Union’s style of fighting derived mainly from the Anglo-Saxon style of fighting.
The conflict and defeat of the Aztecs was not avoidable because the Spanish were looking for gold and land, and would have eventually come into contact with the Aztecs no matter who found the land of Tenochtitlan first. Since the Aztecs had everything the Spaniards wanted, it was likely that a battle between the two was bound to happen. In war the Spanish had a large advantage because of their weapons and battle gear. If the Aztecs came into contact with the Spanish, they were likely to die because of the disease the Spaniards carried with them. Also, a lot of enemies were created against the Aztecs because of the human sacrifices they had to make in order to nourish their gods.
Did you know that the Aztecs and the Spanish were both imperialist and expansionist people. Did you also know that in their respective areas they were the most powerful. The Mexicans now known as ,Aztecs, had a violent war with the Spanish who was led by a conquistador,Hernan Cortés, during the 1500’s in the place now known as Mexico. The Spanish were in search of gold which was one of the reasons that had led to the attack. The Spaniards and the Aztecs both were powerful especially during war.
Tawantinsuyu, or The Inca empire’s geography drastically affected the culture of the Incas. It “...was the largest empire in pre-Columbian America”(Crystal Links), they lived in the Andes mountains and started as a small tribe. They began to form at around 1200 A.D. They began to be a big empire by conquering other tribes and gaining new members.
The first Americans migrated from Asia during the last ice age crossing Siberia and Alaska around 13.000 and 3000 B.C. Mexico and Peru had many domesticated crops in their land which raised their population and wealth. Maize, or corn was a very popular crop in Central and North America. There were two main empires.
