The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash would be a phenomenal song to represent the AP World History period of the early modern world from 1450-1750 C.E. for a myriad of reasons. While examining the Early Modern Era, a historian would notice several pointers that suggest that in this period people were coming closer to what our world looks like today. The main reason this song matches the period so nicely is because it outlines the main theme of this time period. This theme lies in the linking of the Western and Eastern World as European explorers like Christopher Columbus discovered and exploited colonies across the world to their own benefits- truly globalizing the continent for the first time. This truly connected and globalized world is
History is a story of events that occurred. There are always different versions, different ways to see to same event. Each story can include different facts, lessons, and motives. Christopher Columbus’ voyage was a major point in history that leads to rapid development of the new world. His voyage opened up North America for colonization and leads to the successive globalization of the continents.
We hear of stories of how Christopher Columbus accidently discovered America or the New World. Most of our history books indicate the settlers were the ones that helped shaped this new world. We tend to forget how new explorers also impacted America. Christopher Columbus and the rest of Europe coming to America changed the globe by igniting import and export and bridged the Atlantic Ocean between the two worlds. The “Columbus Exchange” is the exchange of technology, diseases, animals, and plants between Europe and the Americas.

The establishment of Columbian Exchange held both positive and negative repercussions, one positive repercussions being agricultural growth due to all the newly discovered crops and flora and one negative repercussion being the introduction of European diseases to the New world that resulted in the death of approximately70 million North American natives. After news of Columbus's discovery spread to the rest of Europe, many explorer sailed to North
The 19th century was an era of unbridled Imperial expansion with European colonies established all over the world. In the last quarter of the 19th century there were a number of wars and expeditions that saw the creation and expansion of colonial empires such as the French expeditions to Vietnam, Tunisia and Morocco, the conquest of the Congo by the Belgians, British expansion to India, Egypt, Sudan and South Africa and finally German and Italian expansion in Africa.

Throughout history, civilizations and nations have relentlessly competed to surpass one another. This is evident in the Age of Exploration in which explorers, such as Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Bartolomeu Dias, Prince Henry the Navigator, among many others, explored new lands and established overseas colonies for their respective mother countries. In these colonies, the Europeans converted the natives to Christianity, searched for gold and precious metals, and brought fame and glory to their countries. The goals of “God, gold, and glory” became a significant part of the Age of Exploration. Although the “three G’s” stimulated competition across the European states, the underlying push was by the Ottomans.

The trans-Atlantic was an elaborate coastal trade route through which the colonies sold goods to one another, linking the North American colonies to England, continental Europe, and the West coast of Africa through the exchange of slaves, raw materials, and manufactured goods. One of the main impacts this Triangle Trade had was on the laboring systems of the new colonies which left some systems to their original plans of , while new ideas were also introduced.
