Several similarities and differences can be shown between the knights and the samurai, including feudalism, being guided by a code of honor, education and religion, weapons and armor. Feudalism in both Europe and Japan was similarly structured, as seen in Document A, but there were a few differences. The Samurai would not fight anyone who was inferior to them, therefore making peasants safe, while knights very often attacked peasants and destroyed farms. It was very common, while on the Crusades, to ransack farms for provisions. Lords and Daimyo (basically the same status) built castles for protection, and both the Knights and Samurai were depended on for military service by great landowners.
DBQ Essay Bryan Orozco 9-11-14 4th period There are plenty types of warriors but for now I’m only going to write about samurais and knights. They both are sworn to oaths to the lord to protect their city. Loyalty towards the feudal lord in Japan was hereditary. The samurai’s life didn’t belong to himself but to the lord. At all times must they follow the kings and lords commands and If not followed then there are greatly dishonored.
The slave trade was also introduced. Similar events also happened in India as Europeans began invading their region and forced the Indians to do labor. The labor systems were changed mainly because the Europeans believed they were superior to the Native Americans and treated them like slaves (although they were never referred as slaves). One of the few things that remained the same was tribute as taxes were still imposed on people on the lower half of the social hierarchy. In the Incan empire, they also used the Mita system so that the citizens can pay tax through labor.
Colonists were provided with even more reason to practice their religion and continue their work in America for a better, more liberated life. England's success at colonizing, what would become the United States, was due in large part to its use of charter companies. Charter companies were groups of stockholders, usually merchants and wealthy land owners, who sought personal economic gain. While the private sector financed the companies, the King provided each project with a charter conferring economic rights as well as political authority. The colonies generally did not show quick profits.
To the government the whole reason of the law was to guarantee land owners profits of which they had became accustomed to during the war. However opponents of the regime both inside and outside of the regime only saw the law as a class piece of legislation in which the law saved landowners from three things: cheaper foreign grain, stabilised prices and making corn more expensive for the consumer. This concept and idea was not new, a similar law 1804 had been introduced to guarantee 80 shillings a quarter. In spite of this the government had problems to face including riots, petitions and demonstrations. The main protest for this law, was the Luddism riots and machine breaking.

The expansions TS. The colonists were organized militia, a voluntary army of men, who fought with equality. Unlike the colonists, the British were organized in orders of rank in which there was a high range of strictness. Hostility was developed between these two different groups of men because of their differences and treatment towards each other. A Massachusetts soldier wrote in his diary in 1759 that the British troops treated the colonists “little better than slaves to their officers”(Doc D).
The purpose of the Declaration of Independence was the people trying to fight for their freedom, which at the time meant political justice and insubordination to King George III. This was also a way for them to justify the American Revolutionary War. The list of complaints against King George were many. Some of these complaints were that he kept a domestic army stationed in the colonies even though there was no war being fought at the time and these armies were deemed superior to any civil power there in the colonies. King George III controlled the judiciary powers and did so by pardoning his soldiers who committed murder by protecting them with mock trials.
