History, can be taken as a very factual topic. However, the past can never be recorded in every detail. There are many different aspects that must be taken into consideration when judging what a fact is and what is simply a deduction made from opinions. There is a lot of complexity in the conquest of the America beginning with what the facts were, to who was for or against the conquest. In the conquests of the Americas, there is no clear division between the Spanish or Indigenous views of the conquest. People’s standpoints are distinguished by their personal background, their current concerns and interests. This influences whether or they are for or against the conquest and the stand point they chose is what is most beneficial to them. In order to make these accounts and standpoints beneficial to them, they usually omit parts of history, exaggerate other areas or emphasize what benefits them the most. Their concerns include, acknowledgement for themselves, for their people or even reform of the conquest all together.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
