Exploration in Nature Lewis and Clark led the way and took part in an amazing adventure, and an expedition is exactly what it was. They dared to venture into a region unknown to them.

This is shown throughout The Lewis and Clark Expedition. The journal entries throughout this book show just how important
Feudalism1 FEUDALISM is a disputed term. Not used at the time. It was invented by jurists in the Renaissance to describe the property laws and customs of the middle ages. A fief, or feudum, was land held by a man from his lord, in return for which he was to provide him with knight services and/or financial payments. Marx contrasted it to capitalism in the widest sense of that word so he inflated the term to mean the political, social, economic, and cultural system of Medieval Europe. A economic

History 1500 After 1500 there were many signs that a new age of world history was beginning, for example the discovery of America and the first European enterprises in Asia. This ³new age² was dominated by the astonishing success of one civilization among many, that of Europe.

The average British person born in 1760 saw more changes in his or her lifetime than ten generation
