Princess Cruz January 19, 2010 Mr. Deneen 4th Block Hernando Cortez Born in Medellin, Extremadura, Cortez lived through the years 1485-1547. He studied law at the University of Salamanca but decided to try his luck with the Americas in 1501. During 1518, he went and served under the governor of Cuba. With the governor's permission, he organized a crew to accompany him to Mexico. Just before he left for Mexico, Governor Velazquez revoked Cortez's commission because he feared that Cortez would not recognize his authority once in Mexico.
When Juarez returned from exile and gained the presidency of Mexico, Diaz became one of his most loyal supporters and provided the military muscle for his liberal causes (Reed). Diaz first ran for the presidency of Mexico in 1871 against his partner and mentor Benito Juarez, and Sebastian Lerdo de Tejada. The results of the election were so close that it could not be decided on votes alone and was sent to the congress to decide. Juarez’s party held the majority of seats and basically by default was awarded the presidency. This outcome greatly upset Diaz and Diaz later would show his opinion by not accepting the results and threw an unsuccessful revolt to overthrow
Finally, the SA’s activity is also to put fear on the street to get votes for the next elections. Hitler attempted the Munich Putsch because he thought it would benefit them. Firstly, Hitler was very confident about his huge SA army and thought he was powerful. Not only that, but he thought that the army would join him because of the influence of Ludendorff and the SA which are technically ex-Freikoprs. Hitler also thought that since the government was just developing it would have been a good time to seize power and take over the government.
Through the government’s use of spies it effectively managed to infiltrate what they believed to be groups of serious radicals, therefore the government new exactly who the trouble makers were. The effective use of double agent George Edwards during the Cato street conspiracy in 1820 allowed the government to prevent a possible uprising against them. The fact it was a conspiracy to blow up the cabinet gave the government a chance to show how relevant the threat was . However it can be argued the use of spies and the way he dealt with them was an repressive measure. During the pentrich rebellion government spy Oliver persuaded local radicals to march on Nottingham where they were met with troops.
In the process, they could hold back a number of potential rebellions and create a consensus of popular support for the rule of a new, privileged leadership.When we look at the American Revolution this way, it was a work of genius, and the Founding Fathers deserve the awed tribute they have received over the centuries. They created the most effective system of national control devised in modern times, and showed future generations of leaders the advantages of combining paternalism with command. 2. According to Zinn, how did the creation of the United States benefit the upper class? They created a world where a few families owned most of the wealth.
He said it was “Our manifest destiny to overspread the continent allotted by Providence for the free development of our yearly multiplying millions,” (Zinn 151). From the moment that phrase was first imagined, it has applied to many occasions since. When I read this chapter, a part of me was shocked while another part of me knew that these actions were not uncommon. While it is hard for me to determine what the United States’ goal is right now (perhaps stability) it’s easy to see what kind of mindset these powerful leaders back then had. It was all about Manifest Destiny and the idea that Americans were entitled to the land they set their eyes on.

This event was the outbreak for a violent fight to reach liberty. Napoleon came back to Spain and invaded it with no mercy. He gave himself the title of king. As a result, he put his brother José Bonaparte, who according to Giganto in a web article called “José I Bonaparte”, was a man that enjoy the drink and did not take responsibility, as the Spanish king in America. Therefore, Fernando VII, the previous Spanish monarch of America was replaced, and the people in America were not glad since they liked Fernando as their leader.

The Cry of Dolores marked the beginning of the long and bloody Mexican War of Independence, which would not conclude until 1821. Millions were killed or displaced in this long conflict. During his trial, Hidalgo seemed to understand what he had wrought and recanted his actions, perhaps foreseeing the bloodbath to come. The Cry of Dolores was the spark that ignited the tinderbox of long pent-up resentment of the Spanish in Mexico. Taxes had been raised to pay for fiascoes like the disastrous (for Spain) 1805 Battle of Trafalgar and in 1808 Napoleon invaded Spain, deposed the king and placed his brother Joseph Bonaparte on the throne.
