Quarter 1 Midterm
What is the most important
topic in Unit 1?
• The most important topic we
covered was Atlantic Slave Trade.
• The Atlantic slave trade would
trade would make Africans work on
Encomiendas and plantations.The
slaves would pick cotton,sugar,and
tobbaco.Which then was sent to
Europe to be turned into goods like
clothes.The goods were taken down
to Africa and then would be traded
for Africans.This was called the
Atlantic Slave trade.This topic is
important because many slaves
were traded.I chosed this topic
because it seemed important.
• The most important topic
that we covered was The
• The three Amendments
• The 13th Amendment was
the law that freed the
slaves in 1865.
• The 14th Amendment
then made all the slaves
• The 15th Amendment
allowed the former slaves
to vote.This topic is
important cause it helped
slaves a lot.I chosed this
topic because It was really
important.This affects us to
day because without the
three Amendments slavery
would still be going on.
• The most important topic that we covered
was Mexican Independence.
• Miguel Hidalgo was a priest.He united all
the mestizos,blacks,and Indigenous to
fight the spanish.He his speech Grito De
Dolores cause he knew hw was going to
get captured or arrested.He got caught
and got killed.But another great leader
such as Jose Maria Morales also
helped.The spanish were then kicked
out.The new president Vicente Guerrero
which was half black and Indigenous.The
Plan De Iguala Freed slaves in
Mexico.This was important cause Miguel
Hidalgo led them.This effects us today
because if Mexico would of never kicked
out the Spanish.Spain would rule today.
