NATIONALIST REVOLUTIONS SWEEP THE WEST Review that relates to this unit 1. Which European country took over many areas in central and South America during the Age of Exploration?________________________ 2. The ideas of challenging government, using reason and demanding that the government protect natural rights come from which time period in history?_______________________________________ 3. Name two revolutions that we have learned about which were inspired by Enlightenment ideas.______________________________ ________________________________________________________ 4. What does the term social inequality mean?___________________ ________________________________________________________ Overview:

*Enlightenment ideas that inspired the American and French Revolution soon spread to other areas of the world. Latin American countries that were under the control of the Spanish demanded freedom. Leaders like Toussaint L’Ouverture, Simon Bolivar, Jose De San Martin and Miguel Hidalgo all fought to gain independence for countries in Latin America. People fought to gain freedoms and end social inequalities. Unfortunately, many economic inequalities would still remain in Latin America even after independence. *Although Prince Clemens von Metternich tried to shape a conservative Europe with an international balance of power, many revolutions erupted within European countries between 1815 and 1848. Greece gained independence from the Ottoman Empire while many other rebellions were crushed. The unsuccessful revolutions of 1848, left Europe mainly conservative in 1849. *Nationalism was one of the most powerful ideas of the 1800s. Nationalistic ideas caused some countries to unite and others to break up. Otto Von Bismarck united Germany and Giuseppe Garibaldi united Italy by using Nationalism. On the other hand, the Austrian and Ottoman Empires were broken apart with nationalism. Nationalistic ideas also brought about major changes in art and culture.
