"Yeah, I don't know why we haven't taken them over yet. They need to convert to the true religion as well. Pft, multiple Gods, how silly is that?"

The Boer War started in 1899 and was the result of the Boers trying to keep out "outsiders" who wanted to come in and search for gold. The Boer War could be considered the first totally modern war. The war was fought between the Boers and The British, and in 1910, the British won the war. The Europeans who were now Imperializing, were trying to modernize their conquered peoples.
Imperialsim is the act of a stronger country taking over a weaker one. Motives for this could be things such as money, land, power, resources, or prestige. The Europeans felt that they were the superior race, and that it was their duty to modernize the "lesser" races, such as the Africans.
