Project Description

Colonial powers used different means to gain control of a territory.  Now that you have been engaged in "colonizing" Westminster and have read about how King Leopold II gained power in the Congo, you should have a much deeper understanding of the corruption and strategies utilized by the European powers.

Your assignment is to write a well-researched and well-structured essay that analyzes the methods used in one other European colony and compare it to what happened in the Congo.
