3: We would probably still be hunting and gathering. We would not have fancy restaurants or even McDonalds. We wouldn’t have all the delicious foods around the world that we have today. We’d pretty much be eating grass. And deer.
5: If Rome did not fall there wouldn’t have been a medieval times. During the medieval times everybody was dumb. Nothing was invented or created. It was a giant pause in history. If there was actually people creating and inventing stuff we would probably have flying cars right now and water fountains that had Pepsi coming out of it. We would be really really really smart right now.
7: What if the mongols had not opened the silk road? If the silk road hadn't been opened then people wouldn't have to find a different traveling route. Also, their would need to be different routes for trading goods!
8: Medieval Europe | The medieval period spanned from 500 to 1500. During these centuries, new institutions slowly emerged to replace the fallen Roman Empire. Different Germanic groups overran the western half of the Roman Empire. The invasions disrupted trade caused cities to become abandoned, and the population of WEstern Europe shifted. The Germanic invaders who stormed Rome caused a decline in learning among the people. A major part of medieval history was the Crusades. Following the split of the church and the expansion of Christianity, the Crusades were launched to defend Christianity from Islam. While tens of thousands died in the Crusades, Europeans were enlightened to many new technologies and developed many new trade routes. Improvements in navigation were discovered and new items such as silk gunpowder and navigation aids were introduced. This period also faced the Black Death where nearly half of Europe's population died.
9: A lot of people would have lived. A lot of people would have been born. The population would be a lot bigger. The Black plague killed 1/3 of Europe. If the Black Plague didn’t happen, with all the people being alive and continuing their nasty hygienic ways, people would be stinky. They wouldn’t have started the garbage systems, and we would probably be living on a hill of trash.
10: Renaissance | dsfdsa
11: E) What if Gutenberg hadn’t invented the printing press? Books would be rare. Without books people would not be able to read- and get smart. And there would be almost no TV’s because no one would be smart enough to make one. People all over the world would be dumb. And rich people would be the only people who are smart because they would be the only people with books. Because they would afford them.
12: Enlightenment/ Revolutions
13: What if the Enlightenment ideas were not embraced by the colonists? If the enlightenment ideas weren't embraced then people wouldn't think or act the way they do today. If enlightenment never started, things wouldn't be the way they were today. Such as: how our government works, or how working is, etc.
14: World War I
15: WW2 wouldn’t have happened. And many lives would be saved. Germany felt they were better than everyone else. The Germans were forced to admit blame for WW1 and all the damage that was done on the western front. The economy would have been good instead of going down the toilet. Because of Germany the Great Depression happened. Everyone was affected.
16: World War II
17: H) What if the U.S. Had not dropped the atomic bomb on Japan? WW2 would have lasted longer and more people would have died. The atomic bomb put an immediate end to war. Thank goodness We probably wouldn’t be cool with Japan right now either. Japanese people would think we don’t have awesome weapons of mass destruction.
18: Cold War
19: What if the soviet union had landed on the moon first and not the U.S? Well if John F. Kennedy was alive when that happened, he’d be angry. It was his goal to have the U.S. get on the moon before The Soviets. John F. Kennedy would be very upset. Also, the soviets would think that they are better than the USA because they have done more stuff then us. They would feel more powerful than us.
23: Medieval Europe Roman Empire: the territories ruled by ancient Rome. At its height under Trajan, the Roman Empire included W and S Europe, Africa north of the Sahara, and SW Asia. In 395 ad it was divided by Theodosius into the Eastern Roman Empire whose capital was Byzantium and which lasted until 1453, and the Western Roman Empire which lasted until the sack of Rome in 476 The Crusades: any of the military expeditions undertaken by the Christians of Europe in the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries for the recovery of the Holy Land from the Muslims. Christianity: The religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, sent by God. They believe that Jesus, by dying and rising from the dead, made up for the sin of Adam and thus redeemed the world, allowing all who believe in him to enter heaven. Christians rely on the Bible as the inspired word of God. ( See also gospel, Nativity, Resurrection, salvation, and Sermon on the Mount.) Black Death: a form of bubonic plague that spread over Europe in the 14th century and killed an estimated quarter of the population.
