Transcript of History
By Dannon Taylor #23
Bartolome de Las Cascas settled on the island of Hispaniola in 1502 and became a successful plantation owner.Las Casas enslaved American Indians as workers but came to believe that making the indians slaves was wrong. in 1509 he freed his slaves.
Junirero Serra, a Franciscan priest built a string of 21 missions in California.
At first very few people settled in new Spain. They came to find gold. Many of the colonists worked in gold and silver mines.Over time the spanish began to build a city. When the spanish colonies wanted people to do there farming and mining they started to use the indians as there slaves.
Many of the indians died because of overworking, new diseases, and starvation (even whole tribes died) after all of the indians died out they used africans and treated them the same way and they died of the same cause. Later 1550 the king agreed to let all of the enslaved africans go. In 1672 after years of attack by the pirates and the american radars the queen sent money to build a tower of castelo. After 23 years of work it was built.
San Antonio, Texas, San Diego, California.
This lesson is important because the spanish found settlement in new Spain and made the un-found land a city.
While the spanish were growing rich in New Spain the french were making there own claims. The fur trade between american indians and the french grew because of Cartier's voyage. The hurons were desperate for european goods. Beaver hats very popular among the french were wanted badly. By the 1600,s trade was important to many europeans and indians.The french merchants had to jump at the chance to get rich from the fur trade. In 1603 the company sent a cartographer named Samuel De Champlain to North America to map where beavers were found. For the next 5 years he searched some more and he found a settlement on the St. Lawrence river in a place the hurons called Kebec. In the early 1600 a war started between two groups in the same country. By the 1660 French fur trade was nearly destroyed and the french hold in North America was crumbling.
Jacques Cartier's trip down the St. Lawrence river. He had began to trade with the Huron indians.
St. Louis, Des Moines, Louisville, Mississippi river, Louisiana, North America
i think this lesson is important because it talks about the new french settlement and the fur trade.
The English in the Americas
Francis Drake is best known as a sea dog. in 1577 drake started his most favorite voyage that made it down the Strait of Magellan and at the southern tip of South America to the Pacific Ocean. Off the western coast of south America he captured spanish treasure. The ship was so full of riches it took four days to transfer all the gold and jewels to the Drakes ship. Drake was afraid the Spanish would come after them so he took a different route home. On the way he claimed land that was near what is today California for England. Drake eventually returned to England and when he did Queen Elizabeth made him a night known as Sir Francis Drake.
Queen Elizabeth gave permission to Sir Walter Raleigh to set up England's first colony in North America. Sir Raleigh sent two sea captains Philip Amadeus and Arthur Barlowe to explore the Atlantic coast find a good place for settlement.When they returned they said they had found a great place to settle in what is now South America.
Americas, Spain and Roanoke Island
When Raleigh went to the land the two sailors had found he named it Virginia. He hoped the colony would provide raw materials. Raw material is a resource that you will need to make a product.Raleigh sent about 100 colonists to Virginia during the late summer but he himself didn't go. In 1585 the ship landed on Roanoke Island. Then they started building forts in Roanoke Island. Then the ship that brought them to Roanoke Island took them back to England after being on Roanoke Island for a year. Later in July of 1887 they went back to Roanoke Island. They quickly repaired the homes and built new ones but they arrived to late to plant crops.
This is an important lesson because this was the time that we settled in what is now North America.
What: Although the settlement in Roanoke Island failed the north american settlement was still on the rise. As they were to make Jamestown a wealthy settlement they set up trading centers to get there many needs. Then finally they found their gold. Their gold was not precious jewels but tobacco. By 1613 they had made there tobacco perfect for the English. Soon the English were growing tobacco as their cash crop. They were selling their tobacco to Europe for money and they made huge profits. When the tobacco company became so big, workers were desperately needed so they started to use the africans as slaves. By 1619 they had a legislature to make sure that the people living in Jamestown followed the same rules of the people living in England. Virginia's legislature named The House of Burgesses first met in 1619 it was the first legislature in the English colonists.
Where: Virginia, North America
Who: Captain John Smith made an important rule whoever does not work shall not eat. After that every one was hard at work planting, building fences in case of attack and working in the gold fields.
King James took away the charter of the Virginia Company and made Virginia a royal colony after fighting with the powitans.
