Answer:
The rigid social structure of Latin America contributed to the number of problems faced during this period of revolution in that people due to their limitations in social mobility felt like they had no say in politics. In Modern day South America, Peninsulares actually had some say in terms of politics and were given an opportunity to establish high positions in government offices. The Mestizos and Mulattos o the other hand, were not given the same chance for they were seen as inferior due to their lack in European blood. Even though they make up a large a majority of the population. Their lack of voice and say in government doings, was a huge motivation for their many revolts and constant rebelling.

Answer: Toussaint Louverture was the Haitian Sensation.  A former slave who taught himself how to properly read and write. He led the first successful slave revolt in the Western Hemisphere. During the age of exploration in Haiti, he tries to liberate slaves. He was a leader for Haiti, trying to bring change and independence. He was seen as enemy of napoleon in France and shot up and died. But, he was the first African ever to establish a state, separate from European rule.

The French and American Revolution were motivation to Latin Americans because it showed that middle classes elsewhere had risen up and become successful through change and ultimately revolution. The enlightenment also implanted ideas of logic and reason enabling them to see what others were doing successfully and follow suit.

Answer:A difference in Hatian Revolution from the other Latin American revolutions is that instead of it being lead by the middle class in Hatian society it was lead by the lowest class. Its history contains the first successful slave rebellion in history. This rebellion is what set the Hatian revolution in motion. The most evident difference is that the Hatian revolution affected French control compared to the fight against spanish control over other areas in Latin america.

The power shift from the old world to the new world during the time period of revolution symbolized how European empires were collapsing and losing huge amounts of land in the Americas. the Empires of Europe were losing power and strength as new countries began to form their own national identities and borders. A perfect example would be how the french lost power in their own revolution, or how the american revolution took a huge amount of money, land, and power from Britain.

why would rigid social structures in Latin america affect how people lived, and what other societies had social structures of similar rigidness during any time period?

The rigid social structure kept people in the same class from birth. It limited over 99% of the population from participation in the government, as only the peninsulares had that opportunity. Most people with native american or african blood were looked down on by the people of European descent. A place with this similar rigidness of social structure would be India throughout Hindu dominance.

A belief that new nations should be sovereign, independent, and large enough to be economically viable by a common set of laws was a general belief in Latin America. These new nations confronted problems such as social inequality, political representation, and the power of the church. These problems led to political fragmentation, allowing leaders to rise in prominence. Smaller nations that unified began taking larger states out of power. Since most attempts at consolidation and unification failed, a mass of the population remained isolated from the political process and problems of national integration were daunting.

During this time the middle class began to gain power and rise up. The Age of Enlightenment came along causing people to question their role in government and bringing a lot of change in power. There was a huge power shift because of all the revolution that was happening that brought along many changes. Social mobility became a little less restricted in places like Haiti which was ruled by the middle class.

Answer: Father Miguel Hidalgo was from Mexico and he motivated the masses. He led the masses against the European power that was taking over his country. He also led the rebellion against the Spanish; even tough he died before they could do so. He also was the symbol of Mexico Independence. The impact that he had on Latin America was independence, he led Mexico to its independence as well as gained more land.

Explain the power shift between the old and new world, and the major countries that it involved.

Answer: The power shift between the old and new world was constantly changing. The Latin American countries and the newly discovered countries were starting to gain independence, which caused the power to shift to were it was more even and were the parent countries didn't have an overpowering amount of control. For example, Haiti was controlled by the French. Toussaint Louverture, in Haiti, led the first successful Slave Revolt in the Western Hemisphere. Before Toussaint an abundance of african slaves were entering Haiti during the Age of Exploration and working as slaves, but Toussaint will one day liberate all slaves living in Haiti and help them gain independence from Napoleon and France. Haiti was the first former slave state to be established in the western hemisphere, which equals a power shift between the old and new world. Another example is Mexico, which was controlled by the Spanish. Miguel Hidalgo led the masses against the European power of their country. He led a rebellion and independence movement against the Spanish. He became the symbol of Mexican independence. Mexico did succeed in gaining independence, which made the power shift to were the Spainards lost power to the new country Mexico.

How did the social structure of Latin America contribute to the number of problems faced during this period of revolution?

Answer: The social structure of Latin America was very rigid. The classes were determined by your race and where you were born. At the top of the structure was the Peninsulares, which were people born in Spain that have come over to the new world. They created a lot of problems because they had the power and the votes, which made countries start to rebel and question. Below them were the creoles, which were people of European descent born in the colonies. They wanted power because they were European, so why shouldn't they have the right to vote also. Below them were the Mestizos and Melattoes, which were people that were mixed. These people were the main people that started the revolution in Latin America because they wanted more power and to have their own country where they can make the rules and decide on things.

Question: Describe who and how the people shifted the power between the new world and the old world? What was the cause and effect of the power shifts and the people interferring with the revolution?

Answer: The shift in power was from the old world to the old world (Europe) to the new world countries such as the U.S. as well as South American countries such as Brazil. This shift happened through multiple revolutions in Latin America, which were motivated by earlier revolutions such as the American Revolution and French Revolution. These were also caused by factors such as problems such as the social structure which was based on how much European blood your family had. This caused limitations in roles that you could play in Latin America. These factors fueled the revolutions and helped motivate the rising middle class to succeed. The power shift also dealt with the trade that these countries became involved with. Some people that helped with these revolutions and shift in power were Toussaint Louverture who led the first successful slave revolt in Haiti. He liberated the slaves from Napoleon in Haiti and brought independence to Haiti from France. Another person to help in this was Father Miguel Hidalgo who motivated the masses in Mexico against Spain. He led the Mexican natives against Spain and died shortly before Mexican Independence, however he became the symbol for Mexican Independence.

Toussaint Louverture was self educted, former slave. He led the first slave revolt in history. He almost lived to see the independence of Haiti from the French, but he was captured, seen as an enemy to Napoleon, and shot.

Social problems in Latin America were the main reasons revolution took place. The social structure of Latin America was corrupt in that many high class officials were of European blood, such as the peninsular, while Latin American blood officials were of lower classes. This led to questioning of Latin American independence, so the middle class began to rise and rebel as Europe began to experience a loss of power.

Gran Columbia fell apart after Simon Boliviar became governor due to the many political and economic divisions within the many regions. The most notable of these was Ecuador, where the textile industry had been decaying since the early eighteenth century. Finally, these divisions became too much to control, and in 1831 Gran Columbia fell apart.

The mullatos had a low ranking in society because as they had some trace of African blood, they were viewed as lower and therefore were not allowed to have high positions or power within socIety. No power or worth = low social ranking.

Question: theorize, what might have happened if some of the rebellious battles were lost, such as the rebellions in Haiti? Would the land still be ruled by their mother countries today or was revolution imminent? Explain why.

Revolution was imminent in these Latin American countries. The natives were unhappy with the way they were being treated in their own home. If a rebellion failed, another one would have arose, and this would keep happening until the natives got what they wanted: independence from Spain, French, etc. A main factor of allrebellions, revolutions, etc., is persistence. If everyone gave up after their first failure, then nothing would have ever happened in history.

How did who you were born to affect you?

Who you were born into affected your entire life. It put limitations on things such as, how high up on the power in government scale you could be, as well as how much social power you had. I prefer to think about it this way, depending on who you were born into, determined what you were going to be, there was no choice, but rather, a determination from birth who you would be, and what you would do in your life.

Question: Why were countries like England and France so devastated when these revolutions occurred? (HINT: think enlightenment- land=power)

Yes, it’s very true that land did equal power. Countries such as England and France were devastated because they were losing most of their land (colonies). Which means they were also losing power in the eyes of the enlightenment.

Question: what type of impact did the revolutions have on the middle class of Latin America after the enlightenment period?

Question: how did who you were born effect you?

Answer: The race of you determined what class you were required to stay in the rest of your life. For example just a small percentage of African or Native America blood could put you in the Mezistos or the Mulattoes category, lowering you on the social ladder without having done anything. Basically what race you were born determined what social standard you were.

Question: What are some things that Toussaint Louverture accomplished?

Answer: Toussaint Louverture aka "The Haitian Sensation" was a former slave that taught himself to read and write, that being his first accomplishment. He lead the 1st successful slave revolt in the Western Hemisphere in Hati during the Age of Exploration. Wanting to gain independence from France and Napoleon.

After the enlightenment period, questions were brought upon the middle class. These questions changed the views of Latin American middle class and led them to believe that they were being exploited by the Europeans. The middle class soon rose in power and occasionally rebelled against the Europeans.

Answer:Both men helped various Latin American nations gain their independence from the old world countries.  They helped to shape governments of these newly formed countries especially Bolivar who became the governor of the state of Gran Columbia.  Which later split into various Latin American nations from the country of Panama to northern parts of Brazil. This includes the country of Bolivia named after Simon Bolivar, however both men helped to liberate this country.
