(Lloyd, 1996) A few decades later, these railroads helped the Europeans carry machine guns further inland to imperialize a greater amount of territories. A third technological factor was the use of machine guns, as well as the advancements made to them. Through these weapons, the Europeans could confront resistors with powers that outweighed them by an extreme magnitude. Through the invention of the Maxim gun in 1884, imperialists could annihilate those that resisted. Just a few years down the road, this fully- automatic weapon was modified for significantly greater accuracy and power. (Various Sources, “Technology and Imperialism”) More power meant the imperialists could invade at a quicker pace and rapidly change the cultural demographics in Africa.
