It is know that Christopher Columbus is the one who discovered America first, but surprisingly he is not. There were more people to discover America before him. So why does Christopher take all the credit for discovering America? Columbus takes all the credit because he was the one who opened America to Europe, and he broke the barrier for people to conquer the western side of the world. Besides he also brought disease to America and 90 percent to the population were ill.
Ysabelle: Now that we know who is Chandra Gupta… I’m guessing that they might know who is Sumadra Gupta? Seth: (335 - 375 A.D): If you didn’t know, Sumadra Gupta was the son and successor of Chandragupta. Sumadragupta was popularly known as the "Indian Napoleon" as he conquered many territories without making much of an effort. During his reign, many great discoveries and advancements were made in different fields like astronomy, mathematics, medicine, and many more. Many discoveries and advances were made in arts, medicine, literature and science during the Gupta period, and because of these major changes, it has been called the Golden Age of
The Roman Empire was a powerful and has affected the world we live in today, but it was not always successful. The Roman Empire was at its greatest extent at the death of Emperor Trajan in 117 AD, when it included all the lands around the Mediterranean and extended to Britain, the Black Sea, and Mesopotamia.i At the Battle of Adrianople in 378 AD, the Eastern Emperor Valens was defeated and many historians agree that this marks the beginning of the end of the Roman Empire. ii “But the decline of Rome was the natural and inevitable effect of immoderate greatness. Prosperity ripened the principle of decay; the causes of destruction multiplied with the extent of conquest; and, as soon as time or accident had removed the artificial supports, the stupendous fabric yielded to the pressure of its own weight.”iii The Roman Empire was vast in size which extended from the British Isles to the Tigris and
It is evident that Do Won Chang did not have the advantages that most successful businessmen have-- rich families, connections with other businesses, or even the opportunity to go to college. Chang’s success story negates Gladwell’s original “Matthew Effect” ideal; he endured the difficulty of starting anew in a different country while living off of minimum wage, which indicates that arbitrary factors did not play a significant role in Do Won Chang’s success. Instead, his perseverance and hard work paid off in the
Chairelli may of improved many aspects of the team, but he certainly didn 't fix a prominent issue that Edmonton has struggled with for years. With this in mind, Chairelli needs to manufacture a big trade, which reels in a top pairing right handed defenseman and some prospects. Altogether, Edmonton 's defense has not improved whatsoever. While there were some moves, Chairelli wasn 't able to fix some big issues that face Edmonton this season. Defense is the key to the Stanley Cup as other teams in the past have proved.
The two men are prime examples of surpassing even their own expectations. Christopher Columbus is known to be the one who established America, although his intention was to find a direct water route west from Europe to Asia. He didn 't technically “discover” America, for millions had already inhabited the land. When Columbus returned to the Americas he left his brothers Bartolomeo and Diego to rebuild the Hispaniola settlement, leaving with them crew members and native slaves. Columbus took native slaves of his own when he sailed west to continue his search for gold and treasures.
They did not allow it, so Columbus found a place for his ships to safely anchor while all but one of the ships in the fleet sank. Christopher Columbus was an incredible explorer, but just became too greedy with each voyage he went on. His rediscovery led other countries to begin sending their own explorers, all trying to claim land in Americas. Columbus took a huge step for the world of exploration, even though he may not have realized how great it really was at the time. No matter how bad he may have been, he was one of the greatest explorers during that
Despite the fact that the protagonist is President of the United States, many people do not treat him as such, and his status has almost completely no meaning after the flu strikes. “Neither one of them even suspected I was the president. I had become quite a mess by then.” (134) Despite this, many hierarchies form in the post-flu world, but are unpopular and meaningless. “There were claims of Dukedoms and Kingdoms and such garbage, and armies were raised and forts were built here and there. But few people admired them.
Therefore the patria protestia was not nearly as an epidemic as historians depicted and only was detrimental to those with healthy gene pools, or demographic groups that lived long. It was unlikely to have a father living when so many were no longer part of the prosteia. Even though it was traditionally thought pateria was typical, patriarchal dominance did not nearly govern the Roman family and these facts undermine the strong control of paternalism in Roman
Turner hesitates to mention anyone in his essay who is not male or Germanic or at least European, leaving out huge demographics of people who heavily influenced the West. The lack of recognition for the people who actually built the country, with or without choice, is detrimental to history and representation later on in America. The Europeans that came to America had very oppressive laws of property which they carried over with them. The Natives who had been living there for years had a very different concept of property; many believed that the land was gifted to everyone and no one person could own any part of that land. However, the Europeans refused this idea and saw this as an opportunity to take whatever they wanted.
History is a complicated and controversial subject. Robert Morgan makes that point clear throughout his article titled “There Is No True History of the Westward Expansion.” Many people associate history with a few well known names or faces, but they don’t realize that there are hundreds of thousands, even millions of other less prominent characters. This point is evident when discussing the topic of westward expansion. Thomas Jefferson, Meriwether Lewis, and William Clark are three big names that come to mind when thinking about the westward expansion of the United States. However, without the average citizens, “on foot and on horseback, in wagons and ox carts” (Morgan 2), the deed would not have been accomplished.
Zinn asks this question in APeople’s History of the United States.He questions whether or not it was necessary for the explorers of the New World to cause so much destruction. Through his writing, he seems skeptical of these “sacrifices”. In APatriot’s History of the United States,however, this question never arises, it never even appears to cross the author 's mind, their main focus is on who is to blame for the bloodshed and horror. The one thing that both authors (and many others) agree on is that the road that began with Columbus and continues now in the development of this New World is a messy one. It is a road filled with blood, oppression and
It’s hard to defer whether or not John Adams was an effective president because, although many historians believe that Adams was correct in not expanding the naval war with France into a conflict which saved many people’s lives, there were things that he established and believed that completely contradicted the newly established constitution. This could’ve put America into jeopardy. These things included the belief that the executive branch should stand above politics, his agreement to sign the Alien and Sedition Acts, and the fact that mostly of the people in the United States, including his own party, turned away from his ideas, which definitely did not make him the most effective president. Much of Adam’s isolation reflected a well conceived
