By a British order in council of April 1, American manufactures were first admitted into that kingdom. In 1530, Portu gal’s King John III sought to establish a significant presence in Brazil, and sent an expedition to scout it.� By that time, South American coastal natives were well acquainted with European intentions and fought off European settlement attempts.� The 1530 expedition was successful and captured some French ships that traded in brazilwood.� In 1532, Spaniards discovered, conquered, and sacked the Incan Empire, including its capital city of Cuzco, in what may have been history’s most lucrative sack of a capital city.� In 1534, Portugal began granting “captaincies” in Brazil to ambitious minor nobles.� The captaincies were authorizations to invade and conquer Brazil.� The discovery and sack of the Incan Empire was as good as it would get for Europe’s pillagers, but it did not keep them from dreaming of finding more gold-plated empires in the New World’s vastness.� That insatiable lust drove Coronado into Pueblo land and Soto into southeast North America.� Portuguese captains eagerly invaded the Amazon basin but, to their great disappointment, they found no cities gilt in gold and silver.� They also did not find vast settlements of sedentary natives, as the Spanish had done, although, as with the rest of the New World, increasing research keeps revising the estimate upward of pre-Columbian Amazonia’s population .� In 1992, the most prominent scholarly estimate put it at nearly six million, and a range of two-to-ten million prevails as of 2014. [90] The Portuguese presence, as with all European invaders, meant native genocide, but the Portuguese colonial experience was gentler than Spain’s.� Probably mainly due to Portugal’s past, with its many races and ethnic groups living together, due to its many invasions and forced migrations over the millennia, the Portuguese colonial experience was the least racist in character of Europe's powers.� Consequently, Portugal had a more harmonious racial mixing with those that it conquered and traded with, which is reflected in Brazil’s relative multi-ethnic harmony today.

A) Many new state constitutions placed power in the hands of the legislative branch and maintained property qualifications for voting and citizenship. In making cloth of plain ordinary width and fineness, one person was needed to conduct all the business from the raw cotton to tlie finishing of the cloth for every twenty spindles. Large mobs of servicemen would enter civilian quarters looking to attack Mexican American youths, some of whom were wearing zoot suits, a distinctive exaggerated fashion popular among that group.
