European powers allied with the Ottomans whenever it was profitable for them. Nevertheless, when they started feeling a great threat that the Ottoman expansion would drastically affect them, for the Ottomans had control over many trade routes and many resources, they unified against the empire. In brief, they typically cared about their own
Mansa Musa could have taken a much shorter route and gone straight to Mecca, but instead went out of his way to take a longer route which passed through cities who only got gold through trade of salt. By doing this he could make more people want to come to Mecca to receive abundant, free gold without having to trade salt. Next, in Document C it explains that "Mansa Musa's hajj made the difficult trip north to Taghaza"(Document C). This shows that the hajj of Mansa Musa took a difficult trip to a city, which as explained by Ibn Battuta as "nothing but sand with a salt mine"(Document C). If this place was so bad, and all it had was salt and more salt, why would Mansa Musa take the time to go here?
America used the ocean to trade things with other countries. This is how they managed to have a thriving economy. There is no way America could make all the products it needed, so they had to trade with other countries to get specific items they did not have. In document 1 is states “United States… claimed the right to use the ocean, which is the common and acknowledged highway of nations, for the purposes of transporting, in their own vessels, the products of their own soil and the acquisitions of their own industry”. This was America’s right, however, Britain was not respecting that because they would seize American vessels that were going to or coming from a destination where the British did not want American commerce.
After the base of the Delian League was transferred to Athens, Pericles eventually changed the movement to become the Athenian Empire. Because the Athenian Empire grew stronger, this encouraged war and unfortunately lead to the end of the empire after the Peloponnesian War. Although the Athenian Empire itself didn’t last a long times, projects and reforms during the time did. On
Another example of why Christopher Columbus’ reputation is false is from the article “Christopher Columbus Timeline” by Linda Alchin. “Columbus again appeals to King Ferdinand of Spain for patronage, but he was again refused,” page 2. Christopher Columbus asked for his voyage to be paid for by the King of Spain several times because in the quote it says that he was, “again refused.” This shows that Columbus needed to beg multiple times just to be able to sail across the sea. He still needed food, a crew, and other supplies to actually last and make the trip worth

Many Puerto Ricans have always dreamed of seeing their beautiful commonwealth become its own country. American laws today are imposed on the territory, but by leaving Puerto Rico to make its own choices, the citizens could design their government whichever way they would like. This choice has the support of many current Americans, from former inhabitants of Puerto Rico wishing for independence to politicians not wanting to support the island in times of need. On the contrary, Puerto Rico has been the colony of a nation for hundreds of years. They have not had independence since before Spain took over the island in the 1500s, and because of that, it could be disastrous to simply cut all ties with the nation.
When Columbus decided to go out there and explore the world and sail west until he reaches the Indies, he led three ships which were known as the Pinta, the Nina and the Santa Maria out of the port of Palos Spain. He stopped at the Canary Islands and this was due to the lack of wind so the expedition was stopped at the time. What had helped him to sail easily to the Americas was a calm sea and wind that would lead him there (he was lucky). But the trip has taken more time than anticipated and his crew started to be concerned, so what he did was that he had two sets of logs one of them showed the real distance that was traveled by the three ships and one log that had a less distance traveled. The log with the true distance traveled was kept
Basically, it’s imperative to point out the fact that the roots of Western civilization can be traced back to Mediterranean classical ancient times, as well as other parts of European predominantly occupied by the Greek. In this regard, the geography of Greece played an important role in the development of the Greek Civilization, for instance, “HIST 101 Western Civilization I.” (n.d) states, “Greece is an extremely mountainous, peninsula almost completely surrounded by water. It includes both a mainland and some 1400 outlying islands in the Mediterranean Sea.”
One of the biggest reasons Rome fell is because the military. The military started to become sluggish and weak. Since this happened soldiers fought the goths without any protection for their chests and heads (doc B.) This made it so soldiers were easily killed in battle by archers. Adding on to that Soldiers were exposed to wounds because they have no armour so they would think about running and not fighting (doc B.) Senators, bureaucrats, clergymen, cooks, bakers, and slaves all avoided the draft not giving enough people into to military (doc B.)
During the time period of 600 CE to 1450 CE, people on the Indian Ocean sea lanes and on the Eurasian Silk Roads traded luxury items and used their new technology to help trade prosper. Although they were both trade routes, the Indian Ocean sea lanes traded overseas and the Eurasian Silk Roads were land routes. Indian Ocean sea lanes connect Southeast Asia, India, Arabia, and East Africa. The Eurasian Silk Roads connected East and West China to the Mediterranean. Trade was greatly increasing in these two trade routes around this time.
The trans-Atlantic was an elaborate coastal trade route through which the colonies sold goods to one another, linking the North American colonies to England, continental Europe, and the West coast of Africa through the exchange of slaves, raw materials, and manufactured goods. One of the main impacts this Triangle Trade had was on the laboring systems of the new colonies which left some systems to their original plans of , while new ideas were also introduced. The trans-Atlantic route created opportunities in British North America from 1600-1763 that allowed colonies to maintain their original intentions of working to search for resources for Europe, while also opening many new doors which allowed growth in both labor and trade procedures in all parts of
Tyler Rico 5/9/17 Section 2 DBQ Essay During the times leading up the 1500s Christianity and Islam both had different views on merchants and their craft with people from both faiths having varying degrees of opinions on it. Trade increased dramatically after the Mongols came into power and secured the Silk Roads making trade a lot more profitable and a lot less dangerous. This made the issue of trading come to light even more as it became more prevalent in people's everyday life. After the fall of the Mongols western nations raced to find new ways around the Silk Road as they did not want to trade through Muslim controlled land.
Firstly, with the Crusades, people started to trade with each other. “The products of Damascus, Mosul, Alexandria, Cairo, and other great cities were carried across the Mediterranean to the Italian seaports, whence they found their way into all European lands” (Effects of the Crusades). The cities along the coast of the Mediterranean flourished by the exchange of goods. Silks, tapestries, precious stones, perfumes, spices, pearls, and ivory were so enchanting to those Crusaders (Effects of the Crusades). If people didn’t start trading, they could still be in the Middle Ages where Feudalism still existed.
