As part of his plan of rapid industrialisation, Guevara believed that a diversification of Cuba’s agricultural production and increased investment in industrialisation was necessary to end Cuba’s reliance on Sugar. By late 1963, Guevara realised his mistake and diverted resources from Industrialisation to sugar production, but his efforts proved to be futile, and the Cuban economy was situated at its lowest point since Castro’s rise to power. In summary, Guevara’s significance and lasting effect cannot be understated. From his Legacy as a martyred hero who stood up for the oppressed, to the significance of his ideology and teachings in Latin America, and the key role he played within the Cuban
Prior to the Latin American countries gaining independence, the Creole elites expressed great displeasure with the crown and readily equated themselves with the American colonists before gaining independence from Britain. With this ideology, many Creole’s became enfranchised with Anglo-European culture and enlightenment, convinced that this culture would solve their perceived problems. The Latin American Creole’s believed in both Charles Darwin and Spencer, to show that the fittest survive through evolution and that those concepts apply to the society they lived in. Spencer reinforced the belief that science, industry and progress were interlinked, and with the evolution of society their nations would bloom. Therefore, if an individual was failing in life, blame

One time the British passed a law that allowed the british soldiers to forcefully live in the colonists’ home! The colonies started out to benefit Great Britain, but after one war and lots of laws, the colonies were going to be part of a revolution. What was the American Revolution about? Economic Rights or Civil Liberties? On one hand the British instilled unfair regulations on trade and goods.
As Samuel Adams once said during the Revolution, “Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly a right to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend themselves in the best manner they can.” During the Revolutionary War, people wanted freedom from the harsh and brutal taxes that Britain was charging them. As they got into the middle of this fight for freedom, they realized that the real cost for freedom was lives. People were dying left and right, as the medical service they required was nowhere to be seen. The Bruton Parish was the answer to that plea. The Bruton Parish displayed incredible importance in the colonial era.

The Second Continental Congress was a representation of the colonists and colonies as a whole, to Britain. In the beginning of the Congress the majority wanted to stay loyal to “The Crown,” and make peace with it. However, there were already those few who were ready to take drastic measures to relieve themselves of the British rule. One colony in particular that stands out as taking the leading role in the independence of America is Massachusetts, for they received the true wrath of Great Britain.
Despite their hesitation France had earlier aided Americans by supplying weapons for the Battle of Lexington and Concord (1775), “the shot heard round the world.” France had long been an enemy to England and with their aid the colonists gained much needed supplies, soldiers, and a Navy. The French Navy forced the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown. On land, a French commander by the name of Marquis de Lafayette provided training to the inexperienced colonial army. Across the seas indirect support was received as Spain, France, and the Netherlands began general warfare with Britain, which indirectly helped influence the Revolutionary war. The British had no allies.
