    Yeamans' Impact to U.S. History

    Yeamans' Impact to U.S. History

    Back when slavery became part of the economy, slave owners and traders used plantations to trade resources using the Atlantic Trade System. During the 16th to the 18th century, the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was a triangular trading system between Africa, Europe, and North America where slaves were used to help develop plantations such as sugar, cotton, and tobacco in order to export them as resources through the Atlantic Ocean to other countries for more profit, production and increased labor. Bristol was one of the known countries in the British colonies for their long history of trading during the 14th to the 19th century. It was considered one of the main trading ports between other colonies such as North America and Africa during the Atlantic Slave Trade. Sir Robert Yeamans, one of the merchants in Bristol, was a well known merchant who took charge in taking over the expansion of trading during the late 16th century as a sheriff and as a counselor. Scholars say that Sir Robert Yeamans was one who worked with other merchants in secrecy. However, Yeamans made an impact on U.S. history because of trade and his connection to his family. His expansion of trade benefits the increase of trade during the Trans-Atlantic trade during the 18th century.

    The Tudor Dynasty and Queen Elizabeth I |Part 4 - Final Chapter

    For almost 20 years Elizabeth was the one who held Mary for almost 19 years. If you just glance at the historical events, you will find Elizabeth too cruel. Me too, but later on when I read more, I realized why Elizabeth had to do so. Britain has always been isolated from Catholic countries in continental Europe, but within Britain, it has always been easy to lose balance because of the two opposing religious parties. Elizabeth was again considered "illegal" in the eyes of the Catholic side. Her throne and life are always threatened by both enemies inside and outside.

    Secret Societies: Who Were The Assassins?

    Secret Societies: Who Were The Assassins?

    The Assassins were a group so feared, and whose reach was so far, that their very name became synonymous with murder for political means. While most of their history was lost with the fall of their strongholds, we do know some things about this organization, its founder, and the actions of its followers. And while they didn't invent parkour (at least not officially), they were certainly the auteur geniuses who came up with using the constant threat of knives in the dark as a way to keep a populace in line.
