Then in 1502 Christopher Columbus became the first European to visit the fine country of Nicaragua. That was that for a while until the beginning of the 1520s when the Spanish took more interest in settling the land. The indigenous people kept fighting the Spanish off until the Spanish finally conquered them in 1552. Which would mean they would be ruled by Spain until Nicaragua declared independence
During the 19th century America began to expand beyond the territory of America as they became part of the imperialist power. As the economy flourished they needed more input and output for markets to sell natural resources. As trade expanded in the Philippines the U.S needed strong military to secure trade with a naval force. The U.S annexed the Philippines under the condition of protecting the world from Spanish rule. However not all Americans believed the U.S should become an imperialist country.
Manifest Destiny, the philosophy that built a nation. Few Americans have ever assumed that the boundaries of the United States would stand forever unchanged, and how could they? With our national spirit of adventure and our puritan conception of ourselves as a “city upon a hill” we have the recipe and the hunger for new lands and new adventures. This makes the concept of manifest destiny something uniquely American. In 1818 Andrew Jackson, with a broad interpretation of instructions from President Madison, led a military force into Florida to put down a group of armed Seminal Indians.
The great Musica were conquer by the Spanish conquest in the Americas. Spanish explorers made their first exploration of the Caribbean in 1499 led by Rodrigo de Bastidas. At the time the Spanish arrived to what would today be Colombia. The Musica were in war with the neighboring tribe the Zipa and were taken advantage by the Spaniards as they would get conquered. The Spanish didn’t really have any challenge taking over; the Musica attempted to resistance the Spanish and get their territories back.
Six Degree of Seperation: Event 1: Columbus discoverys the New World - 1492 Italian explorer Christopher Columbus convinced the Spanish monarchs to sponsor his voyage with three ships: the Santa Maria, the Pinta, and the Santa Clara. After six weeks of his first voyage, Columbus and his fellow seafarers stumbled upon the New World. Columbus's discovery would later lead to the Europeans colonizing on this new unknown land. Event 2: The Tready of Tordesillas - 1494 One of the first Europeans to take advantage of Columbus's discovery was the Spaniards. Since the New World offered raw materials such as gold and silver, the Spaniards were eager to start colonizing and conquering the New World.
The French were the first to try and build a canal across South America, starting in 1882. Before they could start work, they needed to secure a concession from the Columbian government, which controlled Panama at that time. However, their project failed, thousands of workers died (mainly from disease,) and the company went bankrupt six years later, in 1888. Meanwhile, nationalism was stirring in Panama. An agreement was made with the US government that if the US would help Panama gain their independence, they would allow the canal to be built.
A Comparison on the Colonization Techniques of England and Spain and the resulting outcomes Spain and England are known leaders of the Colonization of the New World. Both countries had a very different approach to how they colonized the New World, and both of them reaped different benefits from colonization. Spain had started their colonization process in 1492 when Christopher Columbus discovered the New World; in 1493 Spain had established their first Colony of Hispaniola. Almost 100 years later, in 1587 England entered the arena with their first settlement on Roanoke Island. This establishment quickly collapsed and the first permanent English colony of Jamestown was established 20 years later in 1607.
The Strategic Use of Spanish Technology during the Conquest of Mexico In the 16th century, the kingdom of Spain was the greatest land on the planet, as it dominated the concept of global exploration and colonial expansion. The Spaniards also had another key factor in their favor: technology. When Spanish explorers landed in Mexico in 1519, under an expedition led by the great Hernando Cortes, after seizing Hispaniola and Cuba from the Taino natives in previous years, their technological superiority gave them an edge in toppling these newfound civilizations. While reading Stuart B. Schwartz’s two-sided recollection on the true conquest of Mexico titled Victors and Vanquished, readers will begin to notice how Cortes’s strategic utilization of technology during certain parts of the conquest would help the invading Spaniards successfully overcome the primitive, brute strength of the indigenous Mexica, through the Spanish adaptation of the struggles they faced along the way, and how they benefited from befriending their enemies. In the early, prepatory stages of the conquest, Bernal Diaz, a soldier and companion of Cortes, compared the Spanish leader’s popularity in the New World to that of Alexander the Great in Macedonia, Julius Caesar in Rome, and Hannibal in Carthage.
The result of the new bacteria, animal, and plant life mixing caused devastating effects on the Americas and Europeans together. The results of this exchange altered both regions historically forever. Christopher Columbus, Cristoforo Colombo, was born in Genoa in 1451 to a humble family. Cristoforo had soon learned the classical learning that had been recently rediscovered and made available in printed form. He also mastered geography, and most likely while traveling the coast of West Africa, he became obsessed with traveling West across the Atlantic Ocean to reach Cahty, China.
Another Portuguese explorer was Da Gama. Da Gama captained the fleet of ships to reach India. There, they found many more spices and set up trading posts for Europe. This Journey opened a direct route to the overseas trade that helped for Portugal’s economy. Though Portugal was probably the largest country for exploration another center country was Spain.
