Caribbean and Latin America revolutions for Independence :1700s -1966.

 I think the most important event in the 19th century is the revolutions of the Caribbean and Latin America that created independence.  This gave countries of both Caribbean and Latin America, freedom to run their own country and control their natural resources. Also make their own political and economic decisions without the interference of European Imperialism.

Political Ideologies in Europe: 1775 - 1875

Political Ideologies is a set of ethical ideals, principles, social movment and class that explains how society should work .  There are 3 main type of classes, Capitalism, Socialism and Communism. Some of these ideologies are still practice today by some governments. Capitalism is the system in which production are owned by a private entity who invest with the means of making a profit.  Socialism means that production is primarily  owned  by the government. And Communism has a similar definition as Socialism the only difference is private property do not exists.
