Empire: How Spain Became a World Power, 1492-1763. Bartolomeu Dias (1457-1500) was a great Portuguese navigator and explorer who explored Africa's coast. He remained at sea until 1470, when French privateers attacked his ship as it sailed north along the Portuguese coast. Black Death - The plague which killed one third of Europe's population in the 14th century. The Eastern Cherokee kept assimilating white ways and relinquishing their lands.� With white influence came tribal corruption, and lying and greed made their appearance among the warriors and chiefs, which was something new to the Cherokee.� The more traditional Cherokee (usually the full-bloods) migrated to the western reservation, and the Eastern Cherokee adopted white ways.� In the 1806 treaty, the Cherokee ceded ten million acres, which is an area half as large as today’s South Carolina.� The chi ef who negotiated the treaty, and got rich in the process of selling out his people, was assassinated by a faction of young men, led by a brave named Ridge.� The chief was so hated that even his relatives did not mind his murder. [200] Ridge became a prominent Cherokee leader and led the effort to assimilate white culture.� The assimilation brought on problems that no society could easily manage.� The entire fabric of Cherokee existence was under siege.� Women were to stop tending plants in the fields and become textile makers, while men performed plow agriculture.� Native concepts of reciprocity and the concept of sufficiency did not mesh with the “ greed-as-a-virtue ” attitudes of whites, who grabbed whatever they could and always wanted more.� Try imagining a female American president that dismantles the military, declares holidays to bake bread, Christianity is discarded as a male aberration, and she declares a Goddess-based, nature-worshipping religion as the national religion.� The culture shock that the Cherokee underwent was greater, but they underwent it, and it presented them with a chance to survive.� By 1811, more than one thousand traditional Cherokee had migrated west, and Ridge and others who favored adopting the white man’s ways dominated the Eastern Cherokee.� Great rifts rent the “civilized” tribes.� Duri ng 1811, Tecumseh toured Eastern North America and tried to unite all tribes against the white invasion.� Tecumseh gave symbolic red sticks to the tribes that he spoke to.� The sticks were prepared by his brother, the Prophet, and were to help tribes mark time until their uprising as each stick represented a moon cycle.� Although his brother was known as The Prophet, prophetic ability was apparently a family talent, and Tecumseh had apparently prophesied for several years that a great earthquake would mark the time when the tribes should make their move to present a united front to the whites.� Tecumseh was born on the night of a “shooting star,” and also prophesied that a shooting star would also be a sign that the Great Spirit supported his efforts.

The end of World War I saw the European combatant nations exhausted, an entire generation of young men dead on the battlefield, and political conditions vastly changed from those before the war. When the nationalization and agrarian reform measures met with only limited success, partly because of liquidity problems, an emergency austerity plan was approved by the Council of Ministers in October 1975.

In the first column shows the standard transcription of the original manuscript; in the second, the translation into modern Spanish and an English translation in the third column.: Quebrantaste las puertas y sacaste a los padres santos. As Zinn observed about Columbus, that little tidbit about Washington’s plan, which cannot be found in the standard biographies, while American children are told outright fairy tales about him, is far from innocent.� It is not merely good-natured story telling, to deceive American children into ranking Washington up there with Santa Claus.� Washington’s land grabs, both imperial and private, were the very essence of his life and career, and to sweep his greatest crime/achievement under the rug, while extolling his honesty with fabricated tales, is a form of reality-inversion.� In 2007, somebody noted that omission in Wikipedia's Washington biography, and cited this essay .� I am not holding my breath waiting for Washington's greatest feat to make it into his biographies.� The natives, to their credit, saw the likely outcome of a successful revolt by those elite colonists and few supported the revolutionaries.� The Indians generally backed Great Britain or hoped that they would win.� At that time, Great Britain was trying to honor its Royal Proclamation of 1763 .� However, land speculators, Franklin and Washington among them, set their sights on the Ohio River Valley.� About as many colonists were loyal to Great Britain as revolted.� About 500,000 American colonists of the day would be considered “loyalists,” about 20% of the colonist population. [144] � The revolutionaries forced as many as 100,000 British loyalists to flee the colonies.� Bo th “rebels” and “loyalists” were often more on the order of bloodthirsty, criminal rabble than bona fide soldiers. [145] � Washington as general did not have a high regard for his Yankee soldiers, noting after a review of his troops in 1775, “an unaccountable kind of stupidity in the lower class of these people.” [146] � Washington disdained the militias, while they were probably a deciding factor in the war.� As with all wars, the poor did the bulk of the fighting for the colonies during the American Revolution, and the war may have widened the gap between rich and poor in America. [147] By the time that Wash ington became the USA's first president in 1789, the American invasion of westward lands was well underway.� New York, the Ohio River Valley, and Kentucky were early prizes.� After nearly two centuries of ultimately fruitless bloodshed, the Iroquois vacated their lands and went to reservation land in Canada, with hardly a shot being fired.� Ironically, the Seneca, an Iroquois tribe, who had treaty rights to about half of present-day New York State in 1784, were devastated at Washington’s instruction during the Revolutionary War, and Washington was known as “Town Destroyer” among the Seneca. [148] � Seneca leader Red Jacket told Washington in 1792 that the mere mention of his name brought trembling fear to Seneca women and children. [149] � Washington was the first in a long line of American empire builders who made the USA into the global empire it is today.� Jo hn Jay summarized the attitude of the Founding Fathers when he said that those who owned the country should run it.� The hallowed Constitution made it clear just who were true citizens and who were not.� Full-fledged citizens were white, land-owning men.� Women, slaves, natives, and white men who did not “own” stolen native land were specifically excluded.� In Virginia, in those early days of the republic, about 1% of the population could vote; a proportion that approximates the Communist Party in China in the early 21st century.� Just who were the real “patriots” during the American Revolution: the rebels, or those loyal to King George? [150] The USA has be en a plutocracy from its earliest days, and having its richest citizen as its first president was no coincidence.� Interestingly, the slave-owning elites were the very people who often yelled for “liberty” the loudest. [151] � Alexander Hamilton (one of the few Founding Fathers who was not an ardent slave owner), who wanted Washington to become America’s first king, unabashedly sought to give the rich a “permanent share in our government.” [152] � The new American govern ment immediately imposed heavy taxation onto America’s poor, generally without fair representation, the exact thing that the Founding Fathers said they were fighting the British over.� The oppression led to revolts such as Shays’ Rebellion in 1786.� The Whiskey Rebellion in 1794 was waged over Hamilton’s whiskey excise tax, which fell heavily on Pennsylvanian farmers.
