The climate of social instability that threatened the English monarchy in the late seventeenth century, was crucial to the mass emigration of Englishmen to the lands of the New Continent. This occurred at the time of the Stuarts and introduced himself as a possible solution for both sides.

Since the beginning of colonization, the U.S. territory was divided into the regions of North and South in the south were established production centers for tropical products, monocultures on large estates and slave seeking to export. The northern colonies had an autonomous development, based on the production on small farms, in industries with wage labor and domestic trade.

Capital accumulation occurred within the colony favored the emergence of a local bourgeoisie. With this, the Americans managed to work in foreign trade, the so-called triangular trade. (By: Scribe Valdemir Mota de Menezes)

the Aztecs

The Aztecs, also known as Mexico, inhabited the Mexican highlands and reached its apogee in the early sixteenth century, precisely the time that coincides with the arrival of Europeans to the continent. The Aztec nation dominated the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific, reaching as far as Guatemala.

Its capital was Tenochtitlan and had their origin in the Toltecs. The formation of the Aztec empire was given from the alliance of some city-states, for example, Texcoco and Tlacopan. The Aztecs were a warrior society and its priests were the highest authority, since the emperor Montezuma was considered of divine origin.

Regarding the economy, the Aztecs became an agricultural people, although hunting and fishing practices were widespread enough that people. The Aztec society was rigidly divided: the pipiltin were represented by the nobility, composed by the royal family and priests. Simplest members of the tribes, called macehualtin, it was military service and pay taxes. The lowest layer of the population was formed by tlatlacotin, kind of slaves.

The Aztecs were polytheists, and Quetzalcoatl as the god most revered. They made many sacrifices, especially using blood.
