Without representation in the United States federal government nor political independence, Puerto Rico is powerless and silent. The status of Puerto Rico as a United States territory places the residents in a figurative state of limbo, and the United States should do something to make a change. Puerto Rico has barely experienced any independence throughout their years as a country, colony, and later a territory. The small island was once a colony of Spain, along with its neighbor

As with most of the New World, the Spaniards motives in Colombia were self-serving. They were interested in the acquisition of territory, the expansion of power, the accumulation wealth, and the subjugation of the native people through conversion to Catholicism. The Spaniards organized and calculated colonial tactics in Latin America directly contrast the turbulence and instability that has plagued Colombia since the onset of its colonization. Colonization of Colombia happened in increments, rather than all at once, and the effects of this disjointed colonization have lasted for four centuries Colombia was discovered in 1499 by Alonso de Ojeda, but the process of colonization did not begin until 1525, when Rodrigo de Bastida established
News’s protocol had not reached all of the battles in the fronts and on August 15, 1898 in Manila the US army attacked the Spanish army in the Philippines.

Tejano Religion and Ethnicity, by Matovina timothy M., is a historic book that presents intensive research of the complex mesh of ethnic, religious, and political devotion in the development of the identity of Tejanos (Texas residents of Spanish) in the first decades of their interaction with Anglos in San Antonio. It was the first major Mexican population to be absorbed into the expanding Anglo-American empire. In 1821, San Antonio was a Mexican Catholic town of Mexico. In the same year, Mexico had just gained its independence from Spain. But the Tejanos in Texas gradually started to lose ground to the Anglo foreigners who were allowed to immigrate into their country.
The 12th of October USA celebrated the Columbus Day. It’s a national holiday in many countries in the Americas and elsewhere which officially celebrates the anniversary of Christopher Columbus arrival and discovery of America, which happened on October 12, 1492. Columbus Day first became an official state holiday in Colorado in 1906, and became a federal holiday in the United States in 1937. Since 1970 (Oct. 12), the holiday has been fixed to the second Monday in October , Columbus day has been a very critical subject of very long debates across the United States of America since many years and until now as many considers him a killer and not a discoverer. If we re-read history carefully we will find that Christopher Columbus never set foot in the land that would become the United States of America.
The original 13 colonies of the United States were formed in 1732. Each of these had local governments and their populations grew quickly throughout the mid-1700s. However during this time tensions between the American colonies and the British government began to arise as the American colonists were subject to British taxation but had no representation in the British Parliament. These tensions eventually led to theAmerican Revolution which was fought from 1775-1781. On July 4, 1776, the colonies adopted the Declaration of Independenceand following the American victory over the British in the war, the U.S. was recognized as independent of England.
Have you ever wondered how we stumbled upon and acquired Florida? The fight over Florida extended across many decades and had many changes in who had control over it. The Adams-Onis Treaty (also called Transcontinental Treaty) settled the disputes. It was “Done at Washington, this day of February, One Thousand Eight hundred and Nineteen.” (sonsofdewittcolony.org). This compromise between the United States and Spain in the Adams-Onis Treaty was a significant compromise during the colonization of America because many conflicts between Spain and the U.S. were resolved, it led to further expansion of the U.S, and today, Florida has a huge effect on the United States.
The Cavite Mutiny of 1872 Philippine’s early history has been a series of colonization, revolution, and freedom with Spain as the first colonizers who occupied the Philippines for over 300 years. Every 12th of June since 1898, we, Filipinos, celebrate our Independence Day. In 1896, because of our desire to break free from the grasp of the abusive Spanish colonizers, a revolution broke out. It is thru this revolution that June 12 became a special day. However, another year merits our attention – the historic year of 1872 which is the year of the Cavite Mutiny.
