India39s first attempt to gain independence from the oppressive British rule This was the mutiny of Sepoy Indian soldiers from the British army in 1857 Many Indians were increasingly discontent with the oppressive British rule in India This was further incited by rumors that spread of the British giving the Indians ri es greased with sacred beef fat The British mercilessly put down the Sepoy mutiny and rebellions and re estab1ished their rule over most of India Although the Indians failed in trying to stop their colonizers this event served as an inspiration to freedom ghters The signi cance was to bring about the patriotic spirit of Indians in the country source about com Division of Africa at Berlin Conference The conference only passed empty resolutions about the ending of slave trade and providing for the welfare of Africa The result of the Conference was a method of dividing the continent of Africa between the European powers It introduced the spheres of influence doctrine the control of a coast and authority to protect existing rights such as freedom of trade and transit The Berlin Act created the rules for effective occupation of conquered lands ensuring that the division of Africa would take place without war among the European powers Through the Berlin Act the European powers justified dividing a continent among themselves without considering the desires of the indigenous peoples While this appears extremely arrogant to us now it seemed to them to be the obvious extension of their imperialism The Berlin Conference is one of the clearest examples of the assumptions and preconceptions of this era and its effects on Africa can still be seen today The arbitrary boundaries the Europeans imposed often divided an ethnic group and also brought enemies under the same government causing strife that still exists today sources textbook and class handouts Honors Modem World Exam Review Aisha Azimi Period 7 LATIN AMERICAN REVOLUTION Haitian revolution slave
