Among the additional works was a small masonry fortification across the bay to the west of El Morro. Named San Juan de la Cruz (St. John of the Cross), it is usually called El Cañuelo after the tiny island on which it was built. A wooden stockade originally defended this site, but Dutch attackers burned it during their 1625 assault. A stone fort was built in the 1660s to help defend the harbor entrance and the mouth of the Bayamón River, which linked San Juan to inland settlements. Both of these structures are in front of each other, meaning, they could work together by each protecting their side of the harbor, making both sides protected
Rahul Patel Instructor: Raymond Maxey History 1301-057 19 February 2013 Narrative of the 1584 Voyage (Document 1) Arthur Barlowe was an English explorer and sea captain who helped to lead a reconnaissance expedition to Roanoke Island off the coast of present-day North Carolina, preparing for a larger English settlement the following year. Little is known about Barlowe's life other than that by early in the 1580s he was a gentleman-soldier attached to Walter Raleigh's household in London. In 1584, Barlowe and Philip Amadas captained two ships that landed at Roanoke Island in what would become the Virginia Colony. The explorers remained in the region for two months, and upon his return Barlowe produced a report, "The first voyage made to the coastes of America," that appeared in Richard Hakluyt the Younger's Principall Navigations, Voyages and Discoveries of the English Nation, published in 1589. An entertaining narrative, Barlowe's report appears to have been based on a ship's log of the voyage, and the final text may have been reworked by others, including Thomas Hariot, Raleigh's primary assistant, and Raleigh himself.

HISTROICAL DEVELOPMENT OF CORRECTIONS 2 How Corrections Evolved Since Early Years in the United States The first prison was established in 1790. It was known as the Walnut Street Jail, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China in part to protect the Chinese Empire or its prototypical states against intrusions by various nomadic groups or military incursions by various warlike peoples or forces. Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century BC; these, later joined together and made bigger, stronger, and unified are now collectively referred to as the Great Wall. Especially famous is the wall built between 220–206 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. Little of that wall remains. Since then, the Great Wall has on and off been rebuilt, maintained, and enhanced; the majority of the existing wall was reconstructed during the Ming Dynasty.

The modern world is still living with the consequences of World War II, the most powerful conflict in history. In the bloodshed, seventeen million military personnel died in the war. Moreover, civilian deaths in the Soviet Union and China alone totaled 30 million. Like any other major historical event, World War II has been reenacted in Hollywood movies. Likewise, like any historical movie, Pearl Harbor has generated debate about its historical accuracies or rather its historical inaccuracies.
The above individuals determine the standards of legality while the poor are simply left to abide by the laid out legal standards. Jeffrey H. Reiman the author of “The Rich Get Richer, The Poor Get Prison,” outlines that the current law is limited in terms resolving disputes, distinguishing the truth and meting out justice. The autonomous constraint of the law is in its inability resolving simple issues of everyday life. The article cites numerous statistics that indicate increasing cases of work related injuries due to the failure of the management to put up proper safety working conditions. There is also evidenced failure in the government’s efforts in enforcing safety standards.
