This was a major deal if you were considered the greatest or even close to the greatest. The driving forces behind European Imperialism in Africa the different levels of success based off economics, product production, and its usefulness. The fact that because of imports and exports nations were able to obtain much more that they couldn’t have gotten before that time. The Tanganyika exported rubber, cotton, sisal, and coffee.

Feudal lords, part of the nobility, were powerful local leaders solidifying control in territories of political, military, economic and even religious affairs (C. Smith ). A vassal or knight had lesser status than a feudal lord, but he was still part of the military elite (C. Smith ). At the bottom of the system were peasants and serfs, those who were bound to the land they worked on (Richardson). They made up the majority of the population (Cels 4). Feudalism was gradually shaped into an economic, military, and government system based on feudal oaths between different
The military was headed overall by the shogun , strategized from afar by the daimyo , and , on the battlefield , headed by the samurai. Peasants could join the army at first as foot soldiers and could later on even become samurai. Being a Samurai would later prove fatal for although the economy grew , their wages did not and they could no longer support their lifestyle. Economic growth started to happen. The fact that citizens were not allowed to use weapons meant more people could farm which in turn produced more food and healthier people.
Sharecropping is when a landowner allows somebody to use their land in return for a share of the crops grown on the land. It was most common in the South after the Civil War. The freed slaves chose to be share croppers because farming was the only thing that they knew how to do. Instead of getting wages for working an owner’s land, most freed slaves preferred to rent land for a fixed payment, because they were afraid that they would still have to be told what to do. In the first years after the Civil War, most black people in rural areas of the South were left without land and forced to work as laborers on white-owned farms and plantations so they could earn a living.
Henry The Navigator was addressed as the governor of the Algarve. He was able to bring in lots of money and many of his sponsorships and explorations began after he started his school of navigation. He sponsored many explorations along the west coast of Africa. Henry The Navigator is said to possibly be a founder of the Atlantic slave trade. In 1441, two men captured many Africans and Portugal became very involved in slave trading.
The transatlantic slave trade or triangular trade was a trade system involving Britain, Europe, Africa, America and the West Indies. Goods such as firearms and alcohol were taken from Britain to Africa in exchange for slaves. The slaves were then taken to America and the West Indies where they were exchanged for rum and sugar for the voyage back to Britain. It can be argued that the key reason for the development of the British economy in the 18th century was its role in the slave trade, although there were many other factors involved such as the industrial revolution and the British Empire. The transatlantic slave trade was extremely important to the development of the British economy in the 18th century.
The workers made many useful things. Then they sold it to the merchants and shopkeepers so they could sell it to the public.Finally the lower class. Slaves, servants, and farmers made up this class. This class got little or no money for working. Farmers worked with the animals, crops, mines, irrigation canals, and buildings.

The Vassals would run the land and help keep for the land. The Serfs and Peasants would do all the physical labor well most of it however they had the worst lives.The Wealthy classes would hold grand ceremonies and banquets, collected taxes, settled disputed, and made laws-they held special court sessions to sort out arguments over land-holding. But for the Serfs/Peasants life was rough the only way for freedom for the Serfs was to marry a free women, or saving enough money to buy a plot of land. According to the law, they did not belong to themselves, everything they had belonged to the
This was so because the kings were responsible for taking all of the taxes that the peasants earned, along with even the crops that they grew. The peasants were therefore ill-treated, as they did not have proper food to eat or a suitable place to sleep. However, in the Haitian revolution, things were quite different. There were slaves fighting for their
The system of sharecropping was only a modified alternative for slavery considering the workers would always have debt owed to the landowner and they were not treated much better. They would rent a small portion of land and then they would give the landowner the majority of the crops. Document D shows how sharecropping was spread widely throughout the South, replacing slavery. This prevented freedmen from being completely free, even after slavery had been abolished. In addition, many African Americans in the North were limited when it came to getting jobs.
