Storyboard Text

  • No respect for the Creoles
  • By the late 1700s, the Spanish colonies had a thriving class of Creoles: men and women who were born in the colonies but had European ancestors.  By the late 18th century, Spain appointed mostly native-born Spaniards to important positions in the colonial administration.
  •  The colonies were only allowed to trade with Spain, so, many took to selling their goods illegally to British and American merchants.
  •                       No free trade
  • The American Revolution was seen by many in South America as a good example of colonies throwing off European rule.
  •                   Other revolutions
  •           Americans, not Spaniards
  • There was a growing sense in the colonies of being different from Spain.  The locals preferred to be called Americans and not Spaniards.
  •              Napoleon invades Spain
  • Rebellion
  • The most important factor is probably Napoleon's invasion of Spain. It pushed many undecided Creoles over the edge in favor of independence. 
  • By the time Spain was beginning to stabilize, colonies in Mexico, Argentina, and northern South America were in revolt.
