Today we talked about the British East India company and the role it played in India. We saw how the EIC restructured the Indian economy, impacted social structure, and ignored important taboos. We saw the EIC fall, the British Government take power, and the Sepoy Rebellion. I've uploaded the PowerPoint from today, and attached the lecture notes below.
Your homework this weekend is to finish your Indian Leader annotated drawings and to critically read this article from NPR.
