1. The five hundredth anniversary of Columbus' discovery was treated differently than the four hundredth because African descent identified Columbus with imperialism, colonialism, and conquest and they remembered October 12th as a day of mourning for millions of indigenous people who died as a result of European colonization.

2. Some results of the two worlds meeting were new foods reshaped the diets of people in both hemispheres.The introduction of the horse encouraged many farming peoples to become hunters and herders.

3. Diseases against which Indian peoples had no natural immunities caused the greatest mass deaths in human history. Within a century of contact, smallpox, measles, mumps, and whooping cough had reduced indigenous populations by 50 to 90 percent. From Peru to Canada, disease reduced the resistance that Native Americans were able to offer to European intruders.

4. To many Europeans, the New World seemed to be a place of innocence, freedom, and eternal youth. Columbus himself believed that he had landed near the Biblical Garden of Eden. The perception of the New World as an environment free from the corruptions and injustices of European life would provide a vantage point for criticizing all social evils. So while the collision of three worlds resulted in death and enslavement in unprecedented numbers, it also encouraged visions of a more perfect future.

1.in the 400th aniversuary, the people were very optimistic & thought of him as "mythic", but in the 500th aniversuary, the people reanalyzed the situation & decided that it was a terrible thing what he did. We now have a day to remember those soldiers who died because of the pessimists of 1992.

2.Some results of the adventure was:
new food
death & disease
transformation
international trade
modern conception of progress

3.Because the native americans had only the antibodies from their diseases in their country, when the europeans came over they also brought forign antibodies which the native americans weren't ammune to which made them very ill & eventually die.

4.People back in immigration time thought that going to the americas would give them the perfect oppertunity to live the "perfect life", as though they didn't know it would be so bad & horriffic. They thought that they were moving torward a better future for their family.

1 the reason that it was celebrated different is because of the fact that millons of indians called it a day of mourning.

2 some results in the meeting of the two worlds were the tradeing of food and eventualy disease that the native americans were not immune to witch caused them to wipe out.

3 the impact of european disease on the indians was first of negative. also the impact on the native americans caused them to almost completly wipe out. and later the americans took controll.

4 it contributed to the modern concept of progress by forming america

1. The 500th anniversary was treated differently because over time as more things happened in history, such as: disease, and slave trade, people began to wonder if Columbus was a hero, or a man responsible for many deaths.

2. Some results were new foods were introduced to both hemispheres, global trade, natural enviorments were changed, and there were many deaths caused by disease and illnesses.

3. Native Americans didn't have the natural immunities to fight the diseases brought over to the New World. The illnesses reduced there population greatly. This made the fewer Indians left needing to work more and harder.

4. Columbus' discovery contributes to modern concept of progress because he introduced us to Eurpeans culture, brought in different foods and traditions,and started global trading.
