Patriotism was present in European societies long ago but nationalism was invented to reinforce the cultural and linguistic unity of people. The introduction of the printing press got rid of the supreme power of the church and the pope. Latin was no longer the universal language and local languages began to grow. Language plays a huge role in unifying a people so this also played a role in the rise of nationalism. After the spread of the Enlightenment ideas of self-determination of the nation and the general participation of all its members in the politics of a state, nationalism soon became an irresistible political force.
Over the years, history has been manipulated for people to have a limited knowledge of the actual events. For Example the history of the indigenous people in Mesoamerica which has been misinterpreted with many myths portraying them as heartless and evil people. In reality these indigenous people were incredible and clever to the point that they build a “perfect empire” in what today is part of Mexico and Central America. The cultural and life integration was based on three essential processes worldmaking, worldcentering and worldrenewing. The indigenous were the first ones to arrive in Mexico.
Author Jack Weatherford explains his view on Columbus Day and what we should be celebrating. In his source “Examining the Reputation of Christopher Columbus” he states “he [Columbus] was no more the discoverer of America than Pocahontas was the discoverer of Great Britain” Weatherford does not believe that Columbus had anything to do with that discovery of the “New World” nor does he need to be honored and celebrated for it. Weatherford acknowledges that Native Americans survived without the help of the white settlers, “Native Americans had built great civilizations with many millions of people long before Columbus wandered lost into the Caribbean.” Weatherford states that most of the “great discoveries” that Columbus proved were already known. “Columbus did not prove that the world was round; educated people had known that for centuries.” Jack Weatherford believes we
The Iroquois federation actually had an articles of confederation that the U.S constitution was based upon.

Frederick Jackson Turner, an American historian, stresses the importance of the great western frontier and all of the developments it has made on American history. It’s through Turner’s main points of how the frontier shaped America, how expansion to the west frontier changed people's cultural views, and why America is what it is today that he shows the true value the frontier has in American history. The first major point Turner emphasizes on greatly is how America was shaped by the frontier. The only limits Americans had discovered that they could not overcome were the physical barriers that lie between them and their vision of expansion. The frontier’s physical development that shaped America over each century began with the fall line of the east coast in the seventeenth century and ended at the belt of the Rocky Mountains.
Celtic Mythology and Agricultural of the United Kingdom Ancient legends and poetic monuments of every country and every nation make great interest and value not only for the country itself, but also for all of humanity. Celtic mythology is widely spread across Europe in the I millennium BC, when the Celts settled in the vast territory up to the British Isles. It reached its maximum development in the last century BC - in the period preceding the Roman conquest. Celtic mythology almost does not know the gross atrocities occurring in the legends of the Germans and Scandinavians. It is as charming and picturesque as the Greek, and at the same time very different from the mythology of the Greeks, which is a reflection of the mild climate of the
Adolphus redefined the aspects of Western war by fielding a well-disciplined standing army, which could attack with overwhelming shock and fire utilizing a lighter, more mobile tactical formation.

One of the most important gun inventions was the Gatling gun. It is the ancestor of the modern machine gun, it was the most successful of several rapid-fire guns that were born before the war. Richard Gatling invented the gun in the hopes that a weapon so catastrophic in its damage would convince men to stop waging war.
However, thanks to the contribution of Al Khawarizmi and many famous scientists the world is continuing to evolve industrially, economically, and scientifically. This is however, proof that the roots of knowledge and technology emerged during the Islamic era where the Islamic world consisted of the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo. During those times Europe was in the Dark Age where it had no Central government or infrastructures. In addition, Europe was viewed by the Muslims as unorganized with no strategic importance (Sullivan, n.d). Therefore, one cannot argue with the fact that the heritage and knowledge of the world is all owed to outstanding Arab scientists such as Al Khawarizmi himself, who made the first leap into an advanced scientific
