Mughal These are all the countries that the British controlled The British later on gave the world technology, philosophy, literature, medicine, investments, institutions, and also many of the advantages in technology that we have today! The British ended up fighting a few of these nations and winning! The 1900 century saw the most of the British because the British took many french possessions in the west indies and settled in large numbers in Australia. the British faught fiercely with other european colonies for territory in Africa. There was also a huge expansion of Asia , mostly in Singapore (1824), Hong Kong (1814), and in the South Pacific, but mostly in places of New Zealand (1840). The last huge expansion of the British was after world war 1 , when the german and turkish territories were mandated to the British, and others. The only serious loss of land was when to British changed the 13 American colonies during the American revolution of 1776-1786 which later became the United States of America. The British had later, after the first world war, taken control of 25% of the worlds population and 30% of its area. Although most colonies are now independent the british imperialism was a minor set back in history. Although the British were taking over the world, they brought allot of great things with them, so if it wasn't for the british bringing there reasorces here we would not have this nation we call home. During the British imperialism the British sent British missionaries to lots of places around the world to spread the christian religion throughout the world. Even though they made little changes in countries were there were many other religions like, Buddhism, Hinduism, or the Islam religion.
They had more success in places like the west Indies, in Africa, south of the Sahara. By sending missionaries to those places they led several million people towards Christ even in those non believing colonies! However there were so many believers that they wanted a place to worship so the British later constructed the free church of Scotland, but that was not the only one there were many more! Through the churches they were able to sent missionaries to Nyasland (now Malawi) and a year later to Bechuanland (Botswana) I'm bigger... One of the reasons why the British were able to take over most of the world was because they had developed hyper-power. They got very wealthy because of this! They were even considered "The work shop of the world." However by 1870 they were still producing more than 30% of the worlds industrial output, many of the other nations were not even coming close to the British production levels! - Over 1/3 of the world (2.3 million) was under British rule. - One of Britain's main causes was the spread of Christianity. All new colonies under the British were introduced to a religion completely new to them. This was in Africa, India and China. -1,090 terrorists were hanged and 71,000 were kept in jail without a lawyer or family visits. The British had later, after the First World War, taken control of 25% of the world's population and 30% of its area. Although most colonies are now independent the British Imperialism was a minor set back in history. Although the British were taking over the world, they brought a lot of great things with them, so if it wasn't for the British bringing their resources here, we would not have this nation we call home. I take it... The British were willing to do what ever they could to try to get as much of the world as they could! If your colonie was one that said no to letting the British rule over you they would do horrible things to the women and children... created by: Madison, Megan, and Brooklyn Thanks For Watching. : )
