"a. at its height, included territory that is now part of Turkey, Greece, and Egypt" would be the best answer. The key to much of the Empire's success was that its rulers were fairly tolerant of individual religions.

QUESTION POSTED AT 09/12/2019 - 02:39 AM

True or false The Missouri Compromise opened most of the Louisiana Purchase territory to slavery

Answer:  FALSE

If you look at a map of the Louisiana Purchase, a line across the southern border of Missouri was set, with no slavery allowed north of that line, except for the state of Missouri itself.  So the amount of Louisiana Purchase territory established for free states was greater in land mass than the amount of that territory set to allow slavery.

The Louisiana Purchase territories were acquired from France in 1803.   Debates over the future of new states in that region continued for the next decades.  Missouri was a part of what was acquired in the Louisiana Purchase.  In 1820, when Missouri was ready to apply for statehood, a compromise was reached in Congress that established a plan for slave vs. free regions within the overall Louisiana Purchase regions.  The Missouri Compromise admitted Missouri into the Union as a slave state with Maine being added as a free state at the same time, to keep the balance of slave and free states equal.  It also prohibited any future slave states north of the latitude line 36 1/2 degrees north of the equator in territories of the Louisiana Purchase, with the exception of Missouri (north of that line) being admitted as a slave state.

What impact did the crusades have on medieval Europe?

Crusades had a massive impact on medieval Europe as many lives of men from all around of Europe were lost, which means that certain communities surely experienced a lack of food due to a smaller working force. More importantly however, a lot of money was going into the Crusades as such undertakings required substantial financing. This in effect meant that European kingdoms where money was collected were also poorer. 

A prominent example was also the capture of king Richard of England for whom a huge ransom was required. When this was paid, England was left without money basically; this meant even more problems for a nation that did not have much money at this point anymore anyway.

According to the history book, Medieval to Early Modern Times (by Holt) please answer the following question: 1b) EXPLAIN How did Chinese culture change during the Period of Disunion? Please answer using pages 166-169. If you want to be REALLY helpful, then if you could do problems 1-4, that would be really kind of you. ;-)

Once the nomadic travelers finally arrived in northern China, a few of the Chinese mixed in with the nomads' culture, while the invaders adopted some Chinese practices. Some of the nomadic leaders ordered their people to use Chinese names, use the Chinese language, and dress like the Chinese. Many northern Chinese were against this new system to live under the rule of the nomadic invaders, and fled to southern China. There, northern Chinese culture mixed with the southern therefore developing a change in their culture altogether during the Period of Disunion.

I hope this helped! :D
