First of all, both colonies came to America, but they came for different reasons, one came for Religion and the other came to get rich. Both of those reasons are good reasons to come to America, but if you don't care about others and don't want to help others like the Jamestown colony did, their is no good reason to come to America. Basically, Jamestown was a very bad built colony that didn't really care about nobody but themselves and money and the Plymouth Plantation was a colony that that cared about people's safety and wanted to have freedom of religion so that they could be free to practice whatever they wanted. In conclusion the Plymouth Plantation and Jamestown are very different and alike in many ways and it is very interesting to see how this country's ancestors were and how different the colonies were. The Plymouth were nice people and Jamestown was filled with selfish and greedy
The colonies of Massachusetts and Virginia were a start of the new world for England. These were founded by similar people but, with their strikingly differences, grew into separate political, economic and social structures. Both settlements arose from over-crowdedness in England: people wanted a better life. Virginia was settled by men who were single and looking for opportunities and wealth. They were part of the Anglican religion.
Men held their normal ego and expectations of themselves but woman were looked at differently, unlike Europe where they were the weaker of the two sex. Woman in colonial America were short in number and therefor highly valued. Living conditions for them were not great as well. There was no heat, no running water, they had no toilets, and lighting was dim. If they wanted to go somewhere it was rough because there were no roads.
The New England colonies and the Chesapeake bay colonies also had similarities. They both came to the new world to escape the hardships of England and pursue freedom and wealth. They also both had a good trading system setup and were part of the global economy. They both followed a denomination of christianity whether it was protestant or puritan. The two groups also settled on the east coast and had conflicts with the native residents.
The New England and Chesapeake colonies were established during the early 1700s. Despite the population originating from England, the regions had distinct societies. This was due to the fact that many settlers voyaged to the New World in search of riches, to seek new lives, or for religious freedom. They differed socially, politically, economically, and geographically. The two colonies differed politically.
Though Christopher Columbus was not the first to discover the Incipient World, his landing in the Incipient World in 1492 was consequential: it commenced a period kenned as the Age of Exploration. During this age, European explorers strived to find trade routes and acquire wealth from the Incipient World. Unlike most European countries, England got such a tardy start in the colonization game. As a result, English settlements were concentrated along the East Coast of North America. Among the prosperous English colonies, two categorically paramount English colonies were Jamestown (in modern day Virginia) and Massachusetts Bay Colony.
Plymouth illustrates that while a colony can retain the mission with which it initially began, a utopian colony is not able to progress as well as a non-utopian colony, forcing it to either change or remain small and weak. One of the more successful utopian experiments, yet unable to survive on its own for very long, is the Massachusetts Bay Colony. This colony was also founded by Puritans seeking a better religious environment, but they believed they could reform the Anglican Church, rather than create a new church. The first governor of the colony, John Winthrop, said to the settlers, “we shall be as a City upon a Hill, the eyes of all people are upon us” and told the people that everything shall be held in common and all the people must do what God
Usually, rights for people were written by the government, such as the rights of Englishmen, but the idea of the government protecting rights that were already endowed to humans was supported by American colonists who were against the idea of the numerous violations of the Rights of Englishmen, which included taxation without consent. These taxes later popularized the famous slogan, “no taxation without representation,” first said by James Otis; most colonists believed that
Was Revolution Avoidable? Could the American Revolution be avoided? This question is often asked by historians and today my soul purpose for writing this essay is to answer that question. The American Revolution couldn’t have been avoided. The revolution occurred because of clash of interest of british and colonist, Inflaming tensions by the colonist also cause revolution with Great Britain, and the third reason why the american revolution couldn’t have been avoided was the Boston Massacre.
Before conflict started to erupt between the British and the American colonists, there was the end of the French-Indian War in 1763. The British government was given enormous territorial gains from the war and many of the colonists were eager to move westward onto new, fresh land, especially considering that the colonists had claimed that land in the war. However, to improve Native American relations, the British issued The Royal Proclamation of 1763, which declared the boundaries of the thirteen colonies to be the Appalachian Mountains. The British government saw the proclamation not as oppressive, but as a fair way to prevent more Native American-colonial conflict and in no way expected colonial resentment. Yet, countless American colonists were enraged by this proclamation.
