(“Alexander”)During the final battle in July 332 B.C., eight thousand Phoenicians were reportedly killed, and thirty thousand were taken as slaves. (“Alexander”)The Egyptians welcomed him as a liberator from the hated Persians; they also proclaimed him the son of Amon-Ra, the supreme Egyptian god. Historians think this may be one reason Alexander considered himself divine. To truly understand Alexander the Great, one must understand his later life. He founded the city of Alexandria on the site of the old Greek trading port of Naucratis.
This event led to the greatest threat to Nero’s reign, which began on July 18th, and lasted at least for six days. The fire started at the southeastern end of the Circus Maximus in trading areas, which sold flammable goods. Three of fourteen Roman districts were entirely destroyed and others were severely damaged. Hundreds of people died and many thousands were left homeless. The cost to rebuild Rome was immense.
The war had left many places vulnerable, filled with heaps of debris, and destroyed with no sight of life. Attacks on different cities in Spain had demolished homes that people once lived, filled with many memories. Many family members were lost and missed due to the war. The author also briefly points out a historical figure, Francisco Franco, who successfully led a military revolt and won the Spanish Civil War, which caused him to rise to power and become the ruler over Spain as a dictator. Christina Diaz Gonzalez had implied the brutal dictatorship under Franco and the drastic changes that had occurred.
“SHISHAK THE KING OF EGYPT” Pharaoh Shishak/Shishaq was a powerful Egyptian king that attacked Jerusalem when Rehoboam the son of Solomon was crowned king of Israel. When Rehoboam’s kingdom was fully established and strong, he forsook the law of the Lord, and all Israel with him. In the fifth year of his reign Shishak the king of Egypt came against him with 1,200 chariots, 60,000 horsemen, and innumerable African soldiers in allies with the Lubim (Libyans), the Sukkiims and the Ethiopians, and invaded Jerusalem. The Egyptian king Shishak and his African allies took away all the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the treasures of the king’s house, and carried away all the shields of gold which Solomon had made. Shishak was a North African
The negative effects were mostly the destruction of the empire; after three months of conflict Cortez had finally defeated the capital city of the Aztec Empire, Tenochtitlan (Tucker). Cuauhtémoc, the emperor, was taken captive and later that year he was executed, and Cortez became the ruler of the vast empire (Tucker). The Aztecs were highly vulnerable to European diseases unknown to their nation, such as smallpox and typhus; in 1521, smallpox annihilated the population of Tenochtitlan, two following epidemics wiped out 75 percent of the remaining population (Tucker). The surviving Aztecs were not allowed to learn of their native culture and were enforced to read and write in Spanish, unfortunately a wide range of the Aztec religion and culture were lost forever (Tucker). Some positive aspects were that the Spanish helped ‘modernize’ the civilization, they introduced them to domestic animals, sugar, grains and even European farming practices (Tucker).
In July of 1936, a faction of Spanish troops stationed in northern Africa staged a takeover of Spanish territory in the region. Fueled by nationalistic ideals and a hatred of the newly-instated liberal government, these insurgents quickly seized control of the Canary Islands, Morocco, Navarre, and several other districts in and around Spain. Thus began the Spanish Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in Europe since the end of World War I some eighteen years earlier. Like the Great War before it, this conflict would have lasting and far-reaching consequences that were felt far beyond the borders of Spain itself.

There were two kingdoms the lower egypt and the Upper egypt they both had different religions. The civilization lasted 3,000 years during that time beliefs.

Mansa Musa, who ruled from 1312 to 1337 CE (often referred to as “the golden age of the Mali Empire”), was the tenth mansa, or king, of the Mali Empire, which was located in the Sahara Desert and “stretched across two thousand miles from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Chad” (Alkhateeb; Tesfu). In 1324 CE, Musa, a Muslim ruler, decided to begin his pilgrimage to Mecca, called the Hajj, which is the fifth pillar of Islam. Mansa Musa’s visit to Cairo, Egypt during his Hajj to Mecca had an incredibly negative impact on the economy in Egypt for over a decade. Mahmud Kali, a native scholar and Islamic judge of Timbuktu, provided insight into Mansa Musa’s initial reason for deciding to set out on his pilgrimage to Mecca: Muhammad Quma, a scholar, had told Kali that “the Mali-koy Kankan Musa had killed his mother, Nana Kankan, by mistake. For this he felt deep regret and remorse and feared
Document 9 states that “In 1240,the Christian Crusaders sacked Constantinople, leaving the city in Ruins and plundering wealth.” This is relevant because It shows us that the violence and atrocities all of the Crusades clearly outweighed the positive and religious points of view that they say they were fighting for. Another example is that in document 10 it states that “ One day I entered the Mosaic, repeated the first Formula, ‘ Allah is great’, and stood up in the act of praying, upon which one of the Franks rushed on me got hold of me and turned my face East words saying “This is the way you should pray!” a group of Templars hastened to him seized him and pushed him away from me. I went back to my prayer.

Approximately 62.000 Jews entered Palestine in 1935. The fear of Jewish hegemony was the main cause of the Arab revolt that broke out in 1936 and continued sporadically until 1939. At that time Britain set the second Jewish immigration and prevented the sale of land to
The Mojave Desert is a vast area that expands predominantly in southeastern California. The desert also reaches parts of Nevada, Arizona and Utah; it expands over more than 25,000 square miles (Desert USA). There are no defined boarders of the desert. Finding a center can be difficult, however through the use of a combination of latitude and longitude, elevation, geology, and indicator plants boarders can be established and a center to the desert can be found. Through the use of the $500,000 that The Mojave Desert Geography Council has received, we will locate the center of the Mojave Desert and use the money we have received to build a monument that is dedicated to the Gopherus agassizii, also known as the Desert Tortious, at the center of
