In the period of 1880 to 1914, positive and negative attitudes ascended throughout the acquisition of African colonies. Some thought that it would reinforce Europe's economy and government, others supposed it would add pressures to Europe; it end up being a benefit to the economy, strengthen the nation and civilizing Africa. Motivations would be up brought upon the vague consideration about this dilemma. Some of the motivations were seen with positive attitudes about the acquisition with the pro imperialist who benefited the economy in documents 2, 5, and 12. During the acquisition, the purchase of the Suez Canal was seen more of a positive attitude towards the government it was a nationalistic attitude. Benjamin Disraeli discusses his opinion of the Suez Canal how it should be purchase for the benefit of the strengthening of the empire rather than a financial investment. He expresses his attitude discussing how he would not recommend that purchase as a commercial speculation but rather for the rise of the empire (D2). Since Benjamin Disraeli was delivering a speech to the House of Commons, he probably chose his words carefully as his purpose was to persuade members to support his political agenda (POV). Cecil Rhodes emphasizes his attitude when he mentions that 5 % increase of philanthropy is better than just good stating that increases will always be a benefit, he agrees with the acquisition (D5). For Louis Bernard his encouraging attitude can be seen when he mentions that his new conquering of Algeria he was allowed to forget his humiliation back in France. His participation allowed him to annexed provinces, Alsace and Lorraine making it also a nationalistic attitude (D12). The positive attitudes whether it included economic or nationalistic that were seen here expressed the perspectives of important individuals towards the European acquisition of the colonies. Some motivations also had negative attitudes that were seen towards the acquisition about

DBQ on the Colonies
Although both the New England and Chesapeake regions were settled primarily by people of English origin, they eventually developed into two distinctly different societies. This occurred because of the stark difference in the environment of the two regions, the economies of the two regions, and the mentalities of the people in the two regions. The Chesapeake and New England regions had many flagrant differences that led to….
A.P. U.S. DBQ:
Question: Although New England and the Chesapeake region were both settled largely by people of English origin, by 1700 the regions had evolved into two distinct societies. Why did this difference in development occur?
By the 1700s the two regions, New England and Chesapeake varied greatly in spite of being from the same mother country, England. Physical and cultural differences separated these two regions distinctively. While religion moulded the daily life in New England, Money….
The colonists in the early 18th century felt closer to their homeland of England than they did to their neighboring colonies. It wasn’t until after the French and Indian War that the colonies started to feel unified in a way. Then with the addition of harsh tax acts and policies the colonists started to question being a part of the British Empire. These acts without the colonist’s consent started to stir up ideas about actually becoming an independent nation and revolting against their English rulers….
Another reason for the difference in development of the two societies was the settlers each of them attracted. The main difference lies in the orientation of the settlers. New England attracted entire families of settlers including men, women, and children, while the Chesapeake regions like Virginia primarily gathered young single men who were not related to each other (Document 2 and 3). The final reason why these societies turned out very different was that their economies were vastly different….
During the 17th century, many colonies were founded on the North American continent. The most significant colonies were created by Englishmen who left Europe for several reasons. Even though most colonies were founded by fellow Englishmen, there were two regions that evolved into two distinct societies. There were many factors to why these two regions evolved so differently, but the biggest factor were the motives of each colonist.
The motives of each Englishmen caused certain people to….
because of politics, economics, and the reasons for settling.The Chesapeake region includes the colonies of Virginia and Maryland where the New England colonies were New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay Colony, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.
One of the main differences between the two regions was the reasonings behind the settlements which was the causation of other differences. The New England colonies were settled primarily for religious reasons with groups such as the Pilgrims and the Puritans. The….
of people who now claim dreams of their own. The American Dream began by people wanting to follow their own religion.
Colonies settled into the New World for varied reasons. The colonists settled in the New Word because they hoped for a new beginning. The achievement of this travel justified that the colonies can be markets for England's manufactured goods. "England saw the colonies as a way to sell more goods and resources to other countries." (Marks). The rulers influenced them to cross over to the….

He believed that Government policy had created an atmosphere in which “violence by the African people had become inevitable” and that “unless reasonable leadership was given…to control the feelings of [the]people”, “there would be outbreaks of terrorism which would produce…hostility between the various races.” No other way was open to the African people, to fight “in their struggle against the principle of White Supremacy.” He refused to acknowledge the decree that….
Unity among the 13 colonies
Any American knows the details about the American Revolution, but how much do they know about the status of the colonies leading up to the war? What did it mean to be a colonist in America and how were they different from the British? The Americans developed their own sense of identity that was completely different from any other country and the colonists became united. One can see the sense of unity becomes greater and greater as the revolution gets closer.
