Trip To Ghana

Trip To Ghana

Nadiyah Williams

On November 19, 2017, when I went to Ghana. I learned about Yaa Asantewaa, a female warrior who fought during the war.  I thought she was absolutely amazing. Yaa Asantewaa died at the age 86 after she declared war against the British and defending the Asantes.
The Asantes where a group of men who had a king and where very rich in gold. If you ever disrespected the Asantes, they would cut your head off and attach it to a sword to remind everyone else what the consequences are when you disrespect them.
I was able to visit the Asantes castle, but because it was a very special place, I was not able to take photos of the castle. Inside the castle, there where the beds they slept in and lots of Gold they found that was left from the Asantes which was located in Kumasi.
