~Enlightenment Ideas: was a cultural movement of intellectuals in 18th century, first in Europe and later in the American colonies. Its purpose was to reform society using reason and advance knowledge through science. The French and American Revolutions inspired Latin America by showing that it was possible to overthrow their more powerful and controlling countries.
This would lead to the beginning of the Latin American Revolution. Most of the events that led to the Latin American Revolution were begun because of the Spainish colonization and conquering of the Latin American people. These events were:
Spain setting up colonies in the Americas.
Creoles and Mestizos grow discontented with the Spanish rule.
Enlightenment ideas spread to the Americas. This gives the people new ideas and knowledge through scientific study and experimental advancement. Revolutions begin in North America and France. This gives the Latin American people the urge to overcome their Spanish rulers.
As Spain's power weakens, the country tries to restore authority in their colonies.
Strong leaders speak out for the Latin American countries and call for Independence from Spain. Once the call for Independence was spread throughout the Americas, the people saught out to rise up against the Spanish rule in their country.
This would lead to rebellions and strong leaders like Simon Bolivar and Toussaint D' Ouverture, who would lead their people to overcome Spain and fight for their Independence. The people of Latin America were able to rise up and take back their land because they had the will to fight hard for their freedom and Independence.
They showed us that if you go at it alone, you will surely be defeated; but if you go at it together, you will most certainly triumph. Book References:
