5: Classical Greece & Rome

6: During this Period of time many empires began to have strong militaries. They also began to conquer and expand empires. Military tatics were the the most logical and advanced yet. Books, Math and other farming techinques were being rethought and more conveint. Trading networks were being established during this time periods. Countrys were barting goods between one another for goods they didnt have. Christianty, Buddaism, Hinduismn and Buddism were the major religions.

7: If Rome had not fallen it would have been the largest and most vast empire in the World. They had one of the strongest militaries and was lead by many great commanders. There economy would be the one of the strongest economys and would be the world super power. Oil and gold would have been controlled by the Romans and other natural resources.

11: Medieval Ages

12: After the strong Roman Empire fell apart, Europe became a gloomy place to live in. Much of the land was controlled through feudalism where rich people and poor peasants depended on each other. The Roman Catholic Church also took control of Europe through ts religion and power. Unfortunately, Christianity's competitor, Islam, was also gaining followers in the other close parts of the world. Therefore, Christians joined together by orders of the Pope and went on Crusades or holy wars to try to get back the holy land, Jerusalem. These Europeans gained nothing from these wars except for ideas and the bubonic plague, a disease that killed one third of Europe.

13: If Pope Urban II hadn't sent his soldiers on the Crusades, then Europe wouldn't be the same. Europe wouldn't be able to gain ideas and inventions from the Middle East. Without a spark for new ideas, events like the Renaissance and Reformation would have never come around. Europe would have stayed behind and never become a continental power like it is today.

14: Renaissance & Reformation

15: As Europe's gloomy period of Medieval age began to die down, Europe began to enter a period of "rebirth" also known as the Renaissance. Many of the smart people of Europe began to look at Classical ideas. Great inventors and artists came up during this period like Leonardo Da Vinci who painted the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. International trade between the world grew and everyone began sharing their ideas and inventions. Europe's lifestyle improved from a gloomy mood to a joyous mood. A man named Gutenberg invented a printing press that allowed to print more copies of a single book. This led to many commoners to find out how the Roman Catholic Church was sort of cheating them. Many followers split from the church and created other forms of the church such protestant and orthodox. These acts were called the Reformation.

16: If Gutenberg hadn't invented the printing press, then the majority of people wouldn't be able to read. People would be able to have a personal copy of the bible. Therefore civilians would never learn that the Roman Catholic Church. Events like the Reformation wouldn't never come around and the Roman Catholic Church would still be in control.

17: The Enlightenment & Revolutions

18: The Renaissance woke up Europe from their intellectual sleep, in which many great philosophers came during the Enlightenment such as Rousseau, Descartes, Diderot, Newton, Locke, Montesquieu, and Voltaire. Each of these made their own major contribution to their subject. Their ideas influenced people around the world especially in France and the Americas. in the Americas, people were tired of Great Britain's taxation without representation through which they explained through grievances in The Declaration of Independence. The actions of the Americans were closely followed by the French and colonies in Latin America.

19: If the Enlightenment ideas hadn't been embraced by the colonists, then countries like the U.S and French would have never built such a stable form of government. The U.S's influence over other countries around the world wouldn't have ever existed. Therefore leaving many countries without the help of the U.S to keep communism out of their country. The economy might have worsened since a poor government goes hand in hand with the economy.The U.S wouldn't be where it is right now as the world s superpower.

20: World War I

21: World War I was the first clash of war among the globe. The war caused by Imperialism and the killing of Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand would change the world and trust between countries forever.The war helped end many monarchies and democracy's arose and power was shifted to the people. The war help put an end to the Soviet Union and establish a republic for them. The war also established nationalism and gave citizens assurance that they're problems would be taken care of. Technology was also at all time highs and brought alliances that would indeed help in the next war.

22: If Germany had not been soley blamed for the war there would have been a good chance the second war wouldn't have happened. The Germans wouldn't have felt disrespected and feel the need to get revenge. The blame going on Germany also brought their economy into danger and brought them in to gloomy times leaving them vulenrable to anybody who wanted to step up and lead them.

23: World War II

24: After the Treaty of Vesailles was made to bring peace to Europe, it created a sense of revenge for Germany for being blamed for the whole war. The Germans slowly began to bully other countries like Poland and take over their lands. Soon after, Great Britain and the allied powers declared war on Germany, Italy, and Japan. Germany’s Nazi party of fascism beliefs led by Adolf hitler slowly took control of Europe while the were conquering in Asia. Germany blamed all Jews for WWI and thererfore sent all Jews to concentration camps other wise known as the Holocaust. Soon Japan bombed pearl harbor which brought the U.S into WWII. Shortly after the U.S, U.K, U.S.S.R, and France brought down Germany and Japan after the U.S dropped the atomic bomb on Japan.
