The end of the fifteenth century is attributed as the time period in which Christopher Colombus “discovered” the Americas. Although he was allegedly the first European to have reached these unknown lands at the time, many sought to reach the new world, for a variety of reasons. Most of those people could be divided in two: the settlers and the conquerors. In North America, there were more of the former, people looking for a new home where they could rebuild their families and lives. In Meso-America, however, the goal was to exploit the lands in order to produce and extract new goods which they could trade.

Europeans in India were imperialist in the sense that they wanted to spread their beliefs. Lots of Christian Missionaries came to India.
The empires also built schools in colonies and improve the medical level in the backward countries. Imperialism has significant contribution to form modernization and industrialization of the undeveloped countries at that time.

Some of the African-American veterans gained support from Caucasian veterans who felt that because of African American’s dedication to America that they too deserved the same rights.
