Quarter 1 Midterm By:Estefani Quintana 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. Unit 2 • The most important topic that we covered was The Three Amendments. • The three Amendments are: • The 13th Amendment was the law that freed the slaves in 1865. • The 14th Amendment then made all the slaves citizens. • 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. Unit 3 • 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.
