Major Event/Epoch in American History Time Period/Date(s) Description and Significance of the People/Event(s) to American History
1) Describe three different American Indian cultures prior to colonization. 1200-1900 C.E. Great Indian societies such as the Aztec, Mayan, Inca, and Toltec would emerge. They had complex structures of government and built large cities. These cities would even be seen as impressive to the Europeans when they later arrived on the continent (Brands, Breen, Williams, Gross, 2012).

The most immediate effect of the arrival of British settlers was the issue of land. They were taking land and resources that were not their own. However with peaceful relations there was plenty of land for both early settlers and the Native Americans.

She was the first African American to write such a successful novel. The book really portrays what it was like to be a slave and for that reason it caused people to finally humanize slaves. This book really helped fuel the abolitionist cause by giving hope and raising awareness to the cause. b) The Kansas Nebraska Act was passd on May 30th, 1854. The act wanted to give freedom to those living in the two territories, by letting them deciding whether they would allow slavery or not. Problem was that the Compromise of Missouri had already outlawed slavery so this act caused a lot of tension. c) The compromise of 1850 consisted of five new laws that were passed in September, to deal with the issue of slavery. It was basically them deciding on whether or not they would allow slavery in the new territories that they had obtained from the Mexican-American War. The five bills consisted of: 1.

Doing this centralized Menes’ rule and began construction of the great pyramids; during the times of the construction of the pyramids. The pyramids were giant tombs for Egypt’s pharaohs who were ,at that time, considered to be both man and god, who was the absolute ruler of the land and decided whether Egypt would flourish or not. In the pyramids “pyramid text” or hieroglyphics, which were an early form of writing using pictures represented words or sounds, was written on the walls of the tombs.

They were artisans in stonework, cotton fabrics, and basketmaking. They were agriculturalists and astronomers, and built elaborate dwellings and road networks for trade. The Iroquois were one of the largest tribes, dividing into a League of several nations with diverse languages and traditions and were best known as the People of the Longhouse for their multigenerational dwellings. Algonkian tribes were located in the Northeast and were the first to encounter Europeans. The Algonkians subsisted on both hunting and agriculture.

 2) The effects of British colonization on the Native Americans. (1600’s)

Eventually interactions with the British led to domination of Native Americans not only by taking their land, but through spreading devastating diseases for which Native tribes had no immunity and through religious subjugation.

 3) The evolution of the socio-political milieu during the colonial period, including Protestant Christianity's impact on colonial social life. (1600-1700’s)
