What is the Silver trade?

HIST 2111 Midterm Study Guide  

Date of Exam: Tuesday, October 2, 2018  

Part 1: Terms: For the first part of your exam you will be asked to write 5 paragraph-length  responses to the terms given. You will be given 7 of 24 given terms. You will choose 5 of those  terms to write about. The answers should draw on the course readings, as well as lectures. Below  I have outlined 5 ideas for paragraph responses for 5 of the terms given on the study guide from  ELC. Please let me know if you have any questions.  

Tips on answering this format of long answer responses:  

* Define the term you have chosen: Make sure to answer the where, when, and who of the term  * Show awareness of how scholars and historians may have understood the idea in different ways;  make the reader aware of the perspective(s) you will be approaching this historical content  * Focus on the nuances of the term and time period (define and recognize the characteristics  revolving around the term and the time period and investigate how this term might connect or  bridge history through a transition of two periods)  

What is La Entrada?

* Make sure to close off the response by hitting on 1-2 broader themes of history (In this class  specifically, we have been investigating agriculture, environment, gender roles, technology, political  systems, culture, sedentary lifestyles, etc…)  

* Overall, each answer should be between 5-7 sentences. Try to make it as concise but thorough as  possible!  

* Feel free to email me any responses you might have practiced and I can help review them for  feedback if you want!  

1. Silver trade: The early Spanish and English migratory expeditions of the 16th and 17th centuries  were concentrated around the extraction of silver and gold from the New World. The first of  many attempted English settlements, Jamestown, also had a port known as the “Pirate’s Nest”,  the port used for getting silver and gold from the Spanish of the area. Prior to English  settlement however, in 1485 China established silver as the main form of currency rather than  paper currency. This foreshadows how the Spanish and English quest for silver and gold ended  up stringing together East Asia to the New World, a structure for what some historians claim  was the First Global Economy. With European powers depending on silver and East Asian trade  for economic survival, the trade of silver quickly transferred the global economy and  intercontinental trade systems.

What is the nation-state?

2. C-B-S: CBS Agriculture was an acronym for the “corn, beans, and squash” agriculture developed  in early Mississippian culture. These three agricultural products were known as the three sisters  of the New World in Native American society. Each product contributed to a mutualistic  relationship with the other two and thus made cultivation of these products as well as  dependability of the agricultural system much more sustainable. Additionally, with the American  Bottom as well as Cahokian Empires, the increase of already large populations demanded high  caloric agriculture to support the society. CBS Agriculture helped maintain many early Native  American societies, especially these more populated groups, and caused agriculture to grow into  a more plant-nurturing and gardening culture.  If you want to learn more check out ua 2053

3. Indenture: In the early 1600s, European colonies became major exporters of Tobacco to  England and other European countries. Specifically in Virginia, merchants, traders, and settlers  were drawn by this expanding economy. Indentured servants were critical to the growth of this  economic system as they were employed to work in the New World. They signed contracts  binding them to work given that they got to migrate to the Americas. Following their contract,  indentured (mostly all white) servants were eventually granted freedom and they then became  landowners. With both slaves and indentured servants, the New World economy expanded and  thus the first large scale economic system gained it’s footing.  

4. La Entrada: Hernando de Soto was one of the first Spanish Invaders of North America. In  1543, he traveled to Mexico in search of precious metals or extractable wealth, neither of which  he found. Upon entering Florida, however, he found a profitable land with potential economic  success. La Entrada, meaning entrance, was de Soto’s grand transformation of the American  south. This transformation included the trading of Native American slaves, which was only the  beginning of a historically long period of slave culture. De Soto’s conquest seized once  European disease killed him, marking his death as La Salida, meaning exit.  

5. The nation-state: Following the Hundred Years’ War, a series of military conflicts between  England and France cause increased nationalism between 1337 and 1453. Monarchs began to  exert dominance over nobility, and the political system of city-states and landed empires  converged to a nation-state format. The European Nation-State was a political structure in  which both landed empires and city-states merge to combine the characteristics of a nation state. Characteristics include a monopoly on violence, undisputed legal authority, as well as a  direct relationship between the ruler and their subjects. Socially, the nation-state held  concessions to representative bodies meaning the nobility were at the basis of the political  center. Culturally, nation-states had a shared language and culture (giving rise to public Don't forget about the age old question of ethics midterm exam
