After a 20 year battle, they prevailed over China and acquired the Amur River basin in East Asia, north of Manchuria, a sparsely populated and resource rich region. This land gave them access to the Pacific ocean where they built a successful port. In order to link the disparate parts which now comprised their nation, the Russians began constructing the Trans-Siberian Railroad, which traveled between Russia’s capital in Moscow, its western region and its East Asian acquisition (Worlds Together Worlds Apart, 660).

Most of the people settling Canada in the early years were single men, there to make a living in fur trading, lumber, mining or ranching. Women began to join them in the French territories in the 17th and 18th centuries, and became essential to the prairie homesteading and farming industries in the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s. This era was brought about by the Dominion Lands Policy of 1872, based off an American homestead legislation, allowing settlers to purchase land for around $10 and taking care of and farming the land. They divided the prairie lands into townships and encouraged building families there.
There are already part of the US and cities within Minnesota that are meant for Native Americans, there is little to no need for more land to be bought out. “Native Americans received 11 million acres in parcel land grants, which were put into individual trusts dating back to 1887 known as the Dawes Act.

It developed in the nineteenth century following the collapse of the profitability of the slave trade, its abolition and suppression, as well as the expansion of the European capitalist Industrial Revolution.
The Yuan Dynasty under the Mongol empire has an extensive amount of public works as they built granaries to protect the dynasty from famine, and created large road and water networks. These public works allowed for the people to have large surplus of food and water and also be able to travel in a more organized manner with the road system created (New World Encyclopedia, Country Studies).

While using new warfare technology from the Chinese the Yuan were able to create a strategy to take down fortification by studying the way forts were made.
Between 100 CE and 300 CE, the Han Dynasty had set important cultural foundations, such as Confucianism, constant, which lasted even after the rule of the Dynasty due to literature. The cultural changes led to a period of peace and economic prosperity; however, the political changes, such as unequal control of land between the rich and poor, had resulted in the Empire’s collapse by 220 CE, and it led to the Three Kingdoms Period (ends in 280 CE).
