The correct option is A.
There are two basic sources which an author can draw from when writing an article. The first one is primary source and this refers to an account of an event or history by a person who actually witness the event or the person who experience the event directly. The second one is secondary source and it refers to those accounts of events that are drawn from primary sources.
Thus, a journal account about civil war by a civil war soldier who experienced the war is considered a primary source.

Industrialization led to rising imperialism because 
1) show of power: As one makes new technology, they would either want to test it out or show the other nations that what they produce is ground-breaking and the best. Usually if it is military technology, you would want to test it out, and with the use of “show of force”, can have people groups submit to your country.
2) Better technology: As technology advances, it usually makes something easier. In the case of imperialism, better military advances meant that they could (once again) have other people submit to you
3) Better transportation: This meant that you could take multiple countries at once, and can prove that you’re country is great by having supplies shipped over long distances to keep your troops up. If in need of more troops, you could send more.

Why is the battle of New Orleans unique?

[ad_1]

Answer:

many knights lost their lives and fortunes in battle.

Explanation:

From the Crusades movement (between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries), a series of eight religious, economic and military expeditions organized by the Church (where there was a great loss of life and wealth), commerce intensified and the commercial revival emerged in Europe.

The commercialization of products with the East from the opening of the Mediterranean Sea was a determining factor for the fall of the feudal system, with the increase of commercial routes.

Although from the religious point of view they did not reach many objectives, the Crusades favored the commercial development, putting an end to Arab domination in the Mediterranean Sea.

Fear of the unknown and desire to stay with tradition was not a reason that allowed widespread exploration starting in the 1400s, as the explorers had no fear but a strong desire of discovering new places and getting richess.

Explanation:

The era of discoveries was a historical period that began at the beginning of the 15th century, extending until the beginning of the 17th century. During this time the Europeans, mainly Portuguese, Spanish and British, traveled almost the entire planet, mapping it and conquering it to a large extent. The reason for this expansion came from the need to access the riches of Asia with which to contribute to European mercantilism.

The Mughal–Persian Wars were a series of wars fought in the 17th and 18th centuries between the Safavids and Afsharid Empires of Persia, and the Mughal Empire, over what is now Afghanistan. The Mughals consolidated their control of what is today India and Pakistan in the 16th century, and gradually came into conflict with the powerful Safavids and Afsharids, led by Ismail I and Nader Shah respectively. Aside from Nader Shah’s invasion of the Mughal Empire, most of the conflict between the two powers were limited to battles for control over Kandahar.[1]

The Mughal–Safavid War of 1622–23 was fought over the important fortress city of Kandahar, in Afghanistan, between the Safavid empire of Persia and the Mughal empire of India. It resulted in a clear Persian victory.

Muhammad Ali Beg was the Persianambassador sent to the Mughal court of Jahangir by Abbas I of Persia, arriving in time for Muharram in March 1631. He remained there until October 1632, thus negotiating an end to the conflict between the Mughals and the Safavids.

Having secured crushing victories against the Ottomans, Shah Abbas desired to capture the strategic fortress on Kandahar since he had lost it in 1595.[2] In 1605 the governor of Herat, Hosayn Khan, besieged the city but the tenacious defense of the Mughal governor, Shah Beg Khan, and the arrival in the next year of a relieving Mughal army to Kandahar forced the Safavids to retreat.[3][4] With the conclusion of the Ottoman-Safavid War (1603-1618), Shah Abbas was secure enough for a war on his eastern frontier,[2] so in 1621 he ordered an army to gather at Nishapur.[2] After celebrating the new year at Tabas Gilaki in southern Khorasan, Abbas joined with his army and marched on Kandahar where he arrived on 20 May and immediately began the siege.[2] Though Jahangir had information of the Persian’s movements he was too slow to respond,[2] and without reinforcements the small garrison of 3,000 men could not hold for long against the superior Persian army.[5]

The Emperor asked his son and heir apparent Khurram who was at Mandu in the Deccan to lead the campaign, but Khurram evaded the assignment fearing to lose his political power while he was away from court.[6] The relief force the Mughal’s could assembled proved too small to raise the siege,[4] so after a 45-day siege the city fell on 22 June followed shortly after by Zamindawar.[7] After fortifying the city and appointing Ganj Ali Khan as governor of the city,[3] Abbas returned to Khorasan via Ghur, subduing on the way troubling emirs in Chaghcharan and Gharjistan.[8] The rebellion of Khurram absorbed the Mughal’s attention, so in the spring of 1623 a Mughal envoy arrived at the Shah’s camp with a letter from the Emperor accepting the loss of Kandahar and putting an end to the conflict.[9]

1. The correct answer is: “France was left deeply in debt.”

Louis XIV wanted France to be the biggest European nation, because of this he pursued many wars, such as The War of Devolution, The Franco-Dutch War, and The Nine Years War. But to remain at war France needed the money and this caused the exhaustion of France’s finances.

2. The correct answer is: “France put more power in the hands of its monarchy.”

While England started to remove absolute power from monarchy, France went on the other way, giving more power to the hands of the monarchy because French Aristocrats needed monarchy to maintain their privileges. This ended up being one of the causes of the French Revolution.
