4) The spread of diseases like small pox via the interaction between Europeans and Amerindians was essential in European conquest of the western hemisphere because it led to changed social, economic, and political relations in Europe and also created diversity and new cultures. 5) Positive impacts of the Columbian Exchange on Europe, the Americas, and Africa was the spread of domesticated livestock and major agricultural crops of the Old World into the Americas, and the staple crops of the New World that enriched and benefited the agriculture. 6) The negative impacts caused by the Columbian Exchange on Europe, the Americas, and Africa was mainly the transfer of plants and animals. Due to the Old World livestock spreading quickly and rapidly, environmental changes were dramatic, which caused a destructive impact of livestock on Amerindian agriculturists. 7) The horse had the greatest impact on the cultures of the Native Americans because they helped to increase the efficiency of hunters, as well as the military capacity of warriors on the plains.
Isabella sponsored the voyage of Christopher Columbus which brought money to Spain and a new world. When Columbus discovered the new land they were given to Castile because of Isabella’s sponsorship. With the new world some Native Americans were sent to the new land to be slaves but Isabella disagreed with that and believed they should be treated fairly and with justice. Ferdinand and Isabella were parsons and they made Spain better by establishing buildings and institutions for education. Ferdinand and Isabella both knew Latin and they could read.
Native populations rapidly decreased after 1492 because of disease, enslavement, and war. When the Europeans traveled to the New World they brought diseases with them that caused many deaths. Also the Europeans wanted slaves to work for them so they didn’t have to do anything by themselves. War began to break out because of the many deaths happening. The most important cause of the decline was disease because it caused the most deaths and also one people were noticing the diseases they would move around trying to avoid it, but only to make it worse by infecting more people.
Spain Spain wanted to colonize America so they could build their empire, create additional trading ports and routes, to expand their military control, and to convert the native people to their religious beliefs. Spain explored america to look for gold. Spain also wanted adventure. Since Spain followed the mercantilism economic method, it damaged local industry, restricted trade, prohibited manufacturing and slowed down town growth in order to create economic environment. This is why Spain was had a huge advantage.
This resulted from the arrival of the Spaniards in 1492. In only 100 years, the Native American population was only about 750,000; 24 million less than the original 25,000,000 plus. Christopher Columbus had an incredibly negative impact on the world because he enslaved the Native Americans, didn’t help the kind Natives when they got infected by diseases that the Spaniards had brought to America, and killed off most of the Native American population. The tactics he chose to use were violent and destructive by the standards back then and now prove he was a not a hero but a
When these challenges are faced, many of the settlers will create the foundations of their political, social, and economic systems. There were many differences between the two colonies when it came down to their political systems. First, both colonies were greatly influenced by Governors. This influence can be seen by Sir William Berkeley when he describes that the, “Governors…laid the Foundation of our wealth and industry on the vices of men”. This statement shows that the governors that were in the Jamestown colony had a profound influence during the beginning of their colony.
During 1607-1611, early Jamestown colonists died to many reasons like starvation, occupations, and drought. Colonists did not have many resources to live a long life. That is why they died so fast through 1607-1611. Colonists died because they tried to find a new settlement for more land so they can have more resources and for a stronger defense, but instead they got attacked and there was not a lot of food there to feed them all. Colonists died by attacks by Indians.
There are both negative and positive attributes of The Columbian Exchange. It lasted during the years of expansion and discovery, but shaped the world as we know it today. This transfer had a direct impact on the cultures of North America and Europe, which introduced unfamiliar animals, diseases, and plants. The Columbian Exchange was a significant ecological event that changed the lives of people on both continents. Horses were introduced to the New World by Spanish Conquistadors.
The invasion of the "New World" by European explorers was a significant event which brought on many consequences. The Europeans, who has been isolated for around a thousand years, were eager to explore this new territory, and impose its beliefs upon the natives. The Exploration and colonization of the New World by Europeans impacted the native peoples in both a positive and negative way. The Spanish introduction of many new trades, as well as agricultural techniques helped the Natives grow society and provided a new source of income. However, the introduction of many foreign diseases, and the violent push to convert people to Christianity greatly outweighed the positive effects of the colonization of the new world.
Between the time periods of 1450 to 1850, Latin American societies have shifted their original native rule to European rule because of the contrast between both societies’ advancements and beliefs and then reverted back to native rule primarily because of the influx of enlightened ideas which created the prospect of obtaining native rule again possible. Even with the shifts in power, Latin American societies stayed constant in terms of having autonomous rulers because of the persistent problems of poverty and confusion.
