On November 8th 1519, Don Hernando Cortes and six hundred Spaniards entered the city of Mexico. In Xoloco, Motecuhzoma’s originally thought that these spanish men were prince Quetzalcoatl and other gods. Yet they were far from gods. They were not there to answer all their prayers and hopes but were there to take over the Aztec Capital. On August 13, 1521, the Aztec capital surrendered to Cortes.
Montezuma was then placed by a battlement of the roof and told his people that if they refrained from the war, the Spanish would leave Mexico. The Aztecs then tell Montezuma that they have chosen a new Lord and that the war would continue on until all the Spanish were dead. Stones were thrown that end up hitting Montezuma in the head resulting in his death three days later. (Burkholder and Johnson p. 309-310) The Aztecs were done listening to Montezuma being influenced by the Spanish with their empty
Morelista forces captured Oaxaca in 1812 and in 1813 Morelos convoked a congress in Chilpancingo, Guerrero. The manifesto issued by the congress, radical for its day, advocated abolition of slavery, breaking up monopolies, imposition of an income tax and deportation of all Spaniards from Mexico. Morelos then assembled an army of 5,600 and marched on Valladolid, his native city. Leading the city's defenders was none other than Iturbide. The radical Chilpancingo manifesto had disturbed many conservative creoles, including Iturbide, and they went over to the Spanish side.
The Battle of Hastings was the last and crucial part in William’s fight to throne of England after King Edward. The Mayan Wall Painting at Bonampak was created in 795 C.E. and is located in Structure 1 (Temple of Murals) at Bonampak (in present-day Mexico.) The Bonampak Mural was created by Mayans. The Mayan Wall Painting uses violence and hostility as well; it uses this through Lord Chan Muwan and his army’s conquer over his victims.
One day, Father Hidalgo had had enough, he rang the bell of the very church in which he held mass and gave El Grito de Dolores. He captivated the people he spoke to and led what was the beginning steps towards Mexican independence. In his wake, Spanish blood was shed and filled the streets of his next stop on the train of independence, Guanajuato. It was in this city that his beliefs had led thousands of indians to kill Spaniards in the name of independence. He was later murdered because he was turned into the Spanish authorities.
The army came in, and a man named Cortes seized the city and laid it to ruins. By August 13th, 1521, the Aztec empire was destroyed and Spanish rule soon spread throughout the newly gained land. The Aztec civilization is not very different then compared to it now. The Aztec civilization is modern day Mexico. Mexico still enjoys the same foods, the climate is the same, they build similar housing, they are artistic, etc.
Along Las Casas side were many other explorers including the much talked about Christopher Columbus. Las Casas was shocked to see the horrifying mass murders of the indigenous people from the Spaniards. An Account, Much Abbreviated, of the Destruction of the Indies shows Las Casas dedication to protect the Indies with his collection of documents that describe and reenact the terrible sights Las Casas claims to have encountered during his voyages to the New World. 2. When and where was it created?
For example it looks like the commander is ordering the men to shoot when Captain Preston himself said, “my words were, don’t fire, stop your firing.” (Document Three) Revere also changed the color of Crispus Attucks’ skin as a way to gain more sympathy. These facts were twisted in a way that frames the British as murderers, but they were simply acting in self-defense. It was the colonists that gathered together first and started acting violently. Preston even writes in his deposition, “About 9 some of the guard came to and informed me the town inhabitants were assembling to attack the troops” and, “On this a general attack was made on the men by a great number of heavy clubs and snowballs being thrown at them, by which all our lives were in imminent danger.” (Document Three) The soldiers’ lives were in danger, and were put there by the rowdy colonists who wanted to get a rise out of them. The soldiers were only victims of circumstance, a circumstance that was rigged by the unjust decisions of a select few.
There are numerous reliefs of both Mayan gods including Chac and the Toltec gods including Quetzacoatl. For some reason the city was abandoned around 1300. If the Spanish did not make it a policy to kill all of the Mayan priests and burn books when they arrived in Mexico, we would all have a few more
Winslow force he and him companions to give over all their weapons and Phillip had to sign a document saying he had been disloyal. None of Phillip’s warriors were happy for being falsely accused and giving over their weapons. The Wampanoag people were looking for some sort of retaliation but Phillip wanted to keep the peace. In January of 1675 Phillip’s personal secretary warned Winslow of war and 3 months later he was found dead. Three of Phillip’s men were arrested and tried for the murder.
