Transcript of World History 6.08 Tiimeline

Dominican Republic Independence
The Dominican Independence War gave the Dominican Republic freedom from Haiti on February 27, 1844. Before the war, the island of Hispaniola had been unified under Haitian rule for a period of 22 years when Haiti occupied the independent state of Spanish Haiti in 1822. After the struggles that were made by Dominican nationalists to free the country from Haitian control, they had to withstand and fight against a series of Haitian incursions that served to consolidate their independence (1844-1856). After the war Haitian soldiers would make incessant attacks to try to gain back control of the nation, but these efforts were to no avail, as the Dominicans would go on to decisively win every battle.
Industrialization in Britain
By the 1780s, the British Industrial Revolution, which had been developing for several decades, began to further accelerate. Manufacturing, business, and the number of wage laborers skyrocketed, starting a trend that would continue into the first half of the 19th century. Meanwhile, technology changed: hand tools were replaced by steam- or electricity-driven machines.
The Opium Wars
The First Opium War (1839–1842), also known as the Opium War and as the Anglo-Chinese War, was fought between Great Britain and China over their conflicting viewpoints on diplomatic relations, trade, and the administration of justice for foreign nationals. The Second Opium War, the Second Anglo-Chinese War, the Arrow War, was a war pitting the British Empire and the Second French Empire against the Qing Dynasty of China, lasting from 1856 to 1860. It was fought over similar issues as the First Opium War.
The Seven Weeks' War
The Progressive Movement
The Progressive Era was a period of social activism and political reform in the United States that flourished from the 1890s to the 1920s. One main goal of the Progressive movement was eliminating corruption in government by exposing and undercutting political machines and their bosses and establishing further means of direct democracy. Progressives also sought regulation of monopolistic trust corporations through antitrust laws, which were seen as a means to promote fair competition for the benefit of consumers.
19th Century Changes
All these events sculpted our modern world into what it is known to be today. Without all these changes and advances we would still be hitting rocks together to create fire like cave men and women. So therefore, these changes were much needed.

The Seven weeks' War or Austro-Prussian War (also known in Germany as the German War, Unification War, Prussian–German War, German Civil War, or Fraternal War) was a war fought in 1866 between the German Confederation under the leadership of the Austrian Empire and its German allies on one side and the Kingdom of Prussia with its German allies and Italy on the other, that resulted in Prussian dominance over the German states. In the Italian unification process, this is called the Third Independence War.
