1. The lateen sail was a technological advancement that allowed ships to sail into a headwind. Initially used by the Arabs and later adopted by the Europeans whom combined the lateen sail with other technologies, such as the compass, opened up trade opportunities and improved skills such as mapmaking. The lateen sail was triangular and would allow for maximum sail. The lateen sail was faster than previous inventions, expediting travel and trade. Additionally, the lateen sail could be combined with bigger hulls and rigs, allowing sailors to navigate open water. Ultimately expanding trade routes and allowing for an increase in cargo capacity.
While we can’t deny the fact that the Columbian Exchange had a lasting impact on the New World, many of its effects were negative rather than positive. The introduction of European diseases devastated the Native American population, along with the terrible conditions they were forced to live in. Additionally, the Europeans did not treat the Native tribes as people, but rather as savages who could be used for labor.
Columbian Exchange BBQ The Columbian Exchange was a major milestone in the diffusion of the New and Old World. In 1492, Columbus arrived in the Bahamas(2), where he first came in contact with Native Americans. There, both exchanged their cultures such as crops, animals, metals, and germs, hence the name, Colombian Exchange. This has brought about both positive and negative effects. While some negative impacts are exemplified by the near-genocide of Amerindians, the demerits are outweighed by the benefits of this historical exchange, including the international diversity of ethnicity, and increased global population.

The Columbian Exchange is the exchange of plants, animals, food, and diseases between Europe and the Americas. In 1492, when Christopher Columbus came to America, he saw plants and animals he had never seen before so he took them back with him to Europe. Columbus began the trade routes which had never been established between Europe and the Americas so his voyages initiated the interchange of plants between the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, which doubled the food crop resources available to people on both sides of the Atlantic.
The Colombian Exchange was an extensive exchange between the eastern and western hemispheres as knows as the Old World and New World. The Colombian exchange greatly affects almost every society. It prompted both voluntary and forced migration of millions of human beings. There are both positive and negative effects that you can see from the Colombian Exchange. The Colombian Exchange explorers created contact between Europe and the Americas. The interaction with Native Americans began the exchange of animals, plants, disease, and weapons. The most significant effects that the Colombian Exchange had on the Old World and New World were its changes in agriculture, disease, culture, and its effects on ecology.
Until the sixteenth century, the experts in that period of time believed that it was impossible to sail west across from the Atlantic to Asia. By his adventure, Christopher Columbus, an Italian navigator, proved that they were wrong. However, based on the theory that the earth was a sphere, he thought that he could reach the East Indies by sailing west. He calculated the distance from Portugal to Asia was shorter than to Congo. In fact, the real distance from Portugal to Japan was much further, over ten thousand miles. With his erroneous estimate, he planned a scheme to prove he was right. After several unsuccessful lobbying in Portugal, Spain, even in England and France, eventually, in 1492, he won financing for his journey from Spanish monarchs,
Imagine you and your family are living in the Americas during the fifteenth century. You live an average life, until one day everything changes. Europeans come to the Americas bringing disease, slaves and weapons. They kill 85-90% of your native people; your family and friends. This is what the Columbian Exchange was like for the indigenous people of the Americas. The Columbian Exchange was detrimental because it spread diseases, it brought the slave trade to the Americas, and killed many native people.
Can you imagine a world in which the USA was not the multicultural nation that it is today? It would have been like this if it were not for the the Columbian Exchange. The Columbian Exchange was a major event that took place in the late 1400's and the 1500's. It brought about an exchange in ideas and raw materials between the New World and the Old World. There were pros and cons to the Columbian Exchange, the benefits being that it gave both groups new crops and animals, in addition to making the Americas the diverse nation it is today. The downsides were that many diseases were transmitted between them and and the Native Americans were mistreated.
More families migrated to the New England colonies than in the Chesapeake colonies. John Porter, the Deputy Clerk to Edward Thoroughgood, documented the people who were on board from England to New England. Many of those immigrants listed were financially sufficient, as many of them brought their servants with them to America (DOC B). The immigrants were not moving for capital gain, but for religious freedom. There are also many families on the ship. Conversely, people who were on ship heading for Virginia in 1635 were mostly young males. Indentured servitude was a popular way to receive land and money during the seventeenth century. The documentation was provided so that the people in America are able to keep track of the servants coming into the country, and whether or not their trip has been paid for (Doc C). Young men (and sometimes women) would register themselves to be a servant in America so that they could gain their own land after
The Columbian Exchange has been called the “greatest human intervention in nature since the invention of agriculture” (Grennes 2007). The exchange of diseases, plants, and animals lead to a global cultural and economic shift throughout the Old and New Worlds following Christopher Columbus' 'discovery' of the Americas in 1492. The

It's a few days later now, they caught me the last time I wrote. They ended up taking my journal for a few days. I’m pretty sure that the date is April 3, 1726. I don’t know where I am, we haven’t been near land in days. The captain and crew won’t give us any information, about what’s happening. I’ve gotten at least 12 bruises from being treated so poorly. Everybody has been pushed and thrown over and over. And I don’t know where Aloogo and Heyenah are because we got seperated into different rooms. I pass them in the mess hall, where we ate porridge, fruits, and a lot of gross foods. They made sure to give us Vitamin C at least, so we don’t get scurvy and they can still sell us. So far no one has died, but people have tried to starve themselves
