2: THE COLD WAR
3: If Russia would have landed on the moon before the United States then they would have been a Russian Flag instead of American Flag. There would have been a Russian foot print and not American one. The United States would have boycotted just like they did when we did it. There really isn’t much difference. Russians had a lot more first then we did, so if they got this just detente are bragging a little bit more.
4: World War 1 World War 1 was the first war that involved nations spanning more than half the globe, hence the world war. It was commonly called the Great War or sometimes the war to end all wars until World War 2 started although the name the "First World War" was coined as early as 1920 by Lt-Col in Court Repington. Some scholars consider the First World War merely first phase of the 30 year long war that spans the time frame 1914-1945 | More than 9 million combatants were killed, largely because of great technological advances in firepower without corresponding advances in mobility. It was the second deadliest conflict in Western history. If Germany wasn't blamed for the whole war then there would have been a lot more arguing to split up the war. In some people wouldn't want to take it because we really didn't start it and we just help. So if they were not blamed then there would have been a lot more craziness then there already was.
5: World War I or the First World War, formerly called the Great War, was a major war centered on Europe that began in the summer of 1914 and lasted until November 1918. It involved all of the world's great powers, assembled in two opposing alliances: the Allies (centered around the Triple Entente) and the Central Powers. More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilised in one of the largest wars in history.
6: World War 2 70 years ago on September 1st 1939, Germany invaded Poland without warning sparking the start of World War Two. By the evening of September 3rd, Britain and France were at war with Germany and within a week, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa had also joined the war. Six long and bloody years of total war. World War 2 involved every major world power in a war for global domination and at its end, more than 60 million people had lost their lives and most of Europe and large parts of Asia lay in ruins.
7: If Albert Einstein didn’t write the president about the Nazi, building atomic weapon and the United States didn’t create one then drop it on Japan would have never capitulation. Japan Probably would have dropped one on the U.S. They would have beachhead us and could have gain land, because we didn’t have the advanced technology they had. Then we wouldn’t be invincible anymore. The pattern wouldn’t remain the same and more. We would have lost are moral.
8: Enlightment and Reformation
9: The Age of Enlightenment (or simply the Enlightenment) is the era in Western philosophy, intellectual, scientific and cultural life, centered upon the 18th century, in which reason was advocated as the primary source for legitimacy and authority. It is also known as the Age of Reason. The "Enlightenment" was not a single movement or school of thought, for these philosophies were often mutually contradictory or divergent. The Enlightenment was less a set of ideas than it was a set of values. At its core was a critical questioning of traditional institutions, customs, and morals, and a strong belief in rationality and science. Thus, there was still a considerable degree of similarity between competing philosophies. Some historians also include the late 17th century as part of the Enlightenment. Modernity, by contrast, is used to refer to the period after The Enlightenment; albeit generally emphasizing social conditions rather than specific philosophies.
10: Renaissance and Revolution The Renaissance comes from the Italian word rinascitá, which means "rebirth". They saw this as a Rebirth of the old Roman and Greek Civilization. The renaissance first began in the fragmented city - states of Italy. These renaissance intellectuals said that the epoch following the fall of the Roman Empire in roughly 500 A.D. until their own times was the Dark Ages - or the more politically correct term, the Middle Ages. Yet these people were kidding themselves. It is a paradox that the cultural and intellectual achievements of the renaissance owed a lot to the medieval world. There were gains in literature, art, philosophy, political, and yes, historical thought. Individualism: people wanted to receive personal credit for what they did, instead of praising God for everything.
11: It renaissance was the time when the world started all over.There was new art being discovered. People became secular, very supportive of art. A lot of people became patrons, supportive of art. The people wanted a new start and books,reading, and learning about the world was popular. It began at the top of Italy and lasted for a long of years. Italy was ahead because they had new cities. If Gutenburg never invented the printing press then it would be harder for news to spread. It also would be hard to communicate and there would be the daily newspapers. madonna was the lady. The doctrine is called predestination. Followers of Knox became known as Presbyterians
14: Post Classical Midieval Europe | The era in European history that followed the fall of the Roman Empire, lasting from about 500 to1500 also called the medieval period. If the black plague didn't break out then there would be a lot more people. they had siege.
16: Post Classical Africa and Asia | Africa is the place where people where first created. All they lived by was gathering wild plants and hunting for food.1.9 years ago they began using stone as tools. 8,000 years they started using fire. The climate is very hot and dry. In 3,000 b.c they stared to form kingdoms. West Asians showed africans how to use iron to make weapons. If the Mongals never created the silk road then they would have a hard time trading silk and ect. back in forth.
18: Classical Greece and Rome | Greece first began in 55,00 B.c. The Ancient Greece period period was the old and beginning. This areas usually is by a peninsula. The soil wasn't good because there wasn't a lot of water.They farmed their food and grew crops. Later on Europeans came and brought bronze and pottery. By 1400 B.c people started building palaces.The Greece learned the alphabet from the phoenicians. They was like Western civilization. Around 200 B.C the people who landed here was know as mycenaeans. Around 900 B.c they began to form city-states and they experienced with governments.
