But as The Europeans got more established on the continents and the Native American population plummeted from European diseases they found out that they were easy pray that could be easily supressed and dismantled from their homes. As the European claimed more land the Natives got angry. The Natives raided small settlements in attempts to scare off the Settlers but their attacks were pitiful compared to the retaliation. Large empires got dismantled by disease and technological superiority and the Natives were relocated westward. As USA Became independent they kept going claiming more land as they expanded westwards.
Agriculture was another economic sector that benefited from the Columbian Exchange ,as the influx of newly discovered agricultural items flooded the marketplace,leaving farmers very wealthy.

Without Christianity, this event would have never happened. Also, if Martel’s army would have lost, Islam would have been and still be the dominant religion of Europe. The invention of Christianity is one of the largest and most influential inventions in history. The role of Christianity has been intertwined with the creation of the western civilization throughout history. Christianity has had many effects throughout history, but its most noticeable effects are through three themes: politics by diminishing the power of Roman authority, society by affecting the way Roman citizens live, and religion by stopping the progression of
Prince Ea’s video titled “Dear Future Generations: Sorry” portrays the possible future faced by future generations if people don’t take responsibility for environmental issues that mankind has caused. Humankind must apologize for leaving the Earth an eyesore for the generations to come because they gave themselves reasons to not act. The descendents of the people of today will be forced to live without tree, for the reason that people of today didn’t realize how extraordinary the Earth was. Trees did a great deal such as, provide oxygen, fight against human ailments and contamination, but they were cut down so humans could obtain money. Unlike the Native Americans who took care of the planet for their children’s children, humans now aren’t thinking about
When the slaves were brought to South Carolina, they did not submit to the religion of the Europeans. The slaves wanted to follow their own religion, so the proposal that the Spanish made was pleasing to them. The slaves wanted their people to worship as they liked, so they wanted to flee to St. Augustine. The slaves decided to revolt for the betterment of everyone in the future. The slave revolt leaders’ great great grandson depicts that “Cato take a darin’ chance to losin’ his life, not so much for his own benefit as it was to help others”.
The Europeans cared little about the Native American way of life, they only cared about exploiting the resources of the Natives home; this meant both natural and human. At any rate, the Europeans felt the best way to make the Natives “civilized” was to convert them to christianity, Columbus even brought 10 natives beach with him to help them “adapt to their ways.” Unfortunately, they only survived long enough to become baptized. Ultimately, It was your classic case of European colonialism.
One of the first settlers wrote about the great abundance of animals including whales and other sea creatures, the great quality of soil, and the plethora of timber (Klinkenborg 34). In fact author Verlyn Klinkenberg writes that the corn in America produced more seeds per ear than the ones in England, this meant that through selection some corn and other crops would have been much easier to grow and therefore more can be produced (Klinkenberg 37). These helpful resources they found in the New World held great promise for the future, and instead of going back to England where trees have been cut down everywhere, animals more scarce and the soil had less nutrition they stayed with hope for a better life and one without religious
The invention of the cotton gin in 1793 expanded cotton to be one of the most profitable on the North American main land and it also expanded slavery. Cultivation of cotton took extensive measures for example; they cleared forests and drained swamps to fit the cultivation of cotton. A rise in African American bondage occurred in the region from the Atlantic coast to Texas. Numbers grew fastest in the newer cotton producing states that included Alabama and Mississippi. Though tobacco, rice, and sugar played a tremendous role in the country economically.
John Winthrop said in particular “If God were not pleased with our inheriting these parts why doth he still make roome for us by them diminishing as we increase?” (T 67). The Puritans thought it a sign from God that they had right to use and conquer land, land that they thought the natives could not use properly. The relationship between the Puritans and the natives had not always been this way. In “The Enlarged Salem Covenant” the Puritans state “not the Indians, whose good we desire to promote” (Doc C). This contrasts sharply with the relationship the Puritans actually had with the natives, which resulted in multiple wars and the almost complete annihilation of all native tribes in the area.
What Drove the Sugar Trade? The sugar trade began in 1655 and became a big deal to Britain. Wealthy men would buy property, produce sugar, and sell it to their home country for a low price. (Document 7) Sugar was a product that could be bought and sold easily, since it was in high demand. (Document 3) This meant that England gained money.
Prior to the Civil War, cotton was the most exporting crop in American in the nineteenth-century. The weather and the soils in South were very well suited for growing cotton. The lands were relatively cheap as well, so there was many planters bought a lot of lands as they expanding westward. The South American could easily own a plenty of lands to produce a huge amount of cotton. Therefor, the South America had the largest cotton plantation to produce essential amount of cotton.
The slaves that snuck away to hold religious services were severely punished or sent away to another plantation. Owners felt that by allowing their slaves to practice or be converted to Christianity would make the slaves think they were better than. The owners that refused to force or even allow their slaves to convert also believed that there possibly were legal complications in allowing slaves to be Christians. Based on laws by the British owners thought if the slaves were baptized, then they would have to be freed. This prompts laws being passed in 1706 changed to reflect that just because slaves were baptized they had to be freed.
When soil became depleted, the natives would change locations. Natives would also burn woodlands to clear the land for farming, and make hunting much easier. Natives in a variety of areas treated the land different, which impacted it differently. Colonists argued that your right to own the land was based on how you altered it. The natives though didn’t appear to be altering the land, which meant they had no legal rights to it.
