  WHAT ROLE DID DISEASE
  PLAY IN SPANISH
  CONQUEST???


Of all the organisms Europeans brought to America, none were
more harmful to Native Americans than Old World diseases
(Cronon 1983). The Europeans brought with them smallpox,
measles, diphtheria, trachoma, whooping cough, chicken pox,
bubonic plague (carried by fleas, which were carried by
European rats), malaria, typhoid fever, cholera, yellow fever,
dengue fever, scarlet fever, amebic dysentery, influenza, and a
number of worm infections (Figure 3). Native Americans had
absolutely no antibodies to these diseases. To say that the effect
of these illnesses on the population of the Americas was
devastating would be an understatement.
C. Slave Trade

1. Imported African slaves to work on large plantations
D. Cultural Diffusion

Native goods such as Corn Potatoes, tomatoes,
sugar, Chocolate, Peanuts introduced to the rest of
Europe
