The natives did not have immunities against the diseases such as influenza, small pox, mumps, measles and more. 3. Later, the natives found out that the Europeans wanted more land, which forced them to move farther inland. 4. In 1630, a group of English settlers that called themselves Puritans

They didn 't want to because they thought they were going to get killed. 9-7 Where did the Pilgrims come from and why did they come to Plymouth?

Despite Smith’s efforts, only sixty colonists out of the four hundred survived the “Starving time” winter. It was not until shortly after when the Englishmen decided to set up an offensive small military. As a result of this small settlement in Virginia, the settlers’ persistence would pay off when they would discover how easily the cash crop tobacco grows. In contrast, settlers would come to Massachusetts only to escape the “oppression” they felt. They disagreed with the Church of England in allowing Catholics and “hop[ing] to return the Catholic Church of England to the pope and to restore Catholic doctrines and
As time went by in the new colonies the excitement of being unified in the same Christian beliefs and the “new” wore off the new settlements. People started to get off the straight line of Christian beliefs that people like John Smith and John Winthrop had drawn for the settlers. There was a big gray area of what could be done and what couldn’t be done which caused problems. The judgment of the grey areas was to be left up to the leaders of the colonies which most of the time included the preacher. So anyone who didn’t follow this straight past was cited for wrong doing.
Adversity breaks one down until they can be broken no more, and although adversity has a negative connotation, overcoming adversity can make one stronger, turning it into a positive. When America was discovered and colonized, the indigenous peoples faced real hardships. Americans disliked anything that wasn’t European culture so they tried to eliminate tribal identities and assimilate the Native Americans into their culture. They outlawed certain Indian rituals such as the Ghost Dance and forced Indian children to speak English instead of their native languages. The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased.
The Colonies who built the New World The early 16th century, many british colonies came to the new world for various reasons, some for power, money, land, and for religious reasons. This idea of coming to a land of freedom to do whatever they want and to create a new way of living among the natives that already had been stable in the new world. John Smith and William Bradford in their stories, the General History of Virginia John Smith and Of Plymouth Plantation, William Bradford they had explained how they struggled in the boat to come to the new world and how they had to work together to survive in an unknown land with no resources. Smith and Bradford support their explanation by illustrating how they were able to build a community in the new world and their interrelations with the native Americans. Their purpose is to demonstrate how the new world was formed by their small colonies and their intentions to come to the new world in order to have a clearer perspective on why they came.
This is where a lot of people argue whether Calvinism is the founder to Calvinism or not. There are some people who say Calvinism cannot be introduced as a reformation because the modern calvinism is not what the Calvinism used to be, so it doesn’t exist anymore. And the others would say modern calvinism still has connection with the past, and the past Calvinism was reformed due to John Calvin. I don’t agree with John Calvin having responsibility to Calvinism, because if he had his teachings clear, people can’t change the laws of Calvinism by themselves. This point supports how it is not clear if Calvinism had actually reformed or not.
One thing people seem to forget is slavery has been in existence since the times of ancient Greece, Rome, Africa and Byzantium but Britain changed the way the world perceived slavery. Although, the British didn't have a master plan for slavery, or any idea of this new-found land becoming United States of America, the idea of slavery throughout the world started with Columbus trip to "Hispaniola". Which he thought was Japan but ended up being what is now knows as Dominican Republic and Heidi. Columbus main goal on his exploration was to find goods and spread Christianity but ended up bringing six captive native men because he believed they "should be good and intelligent servants" (Clark, 8). Thus, harboring the Europeans very first slaves.
Things Fall Apart was written by Achebe in the years before the collapse of colonialism. Many people wanted the Europeans gone so things can go back to normal again. The effects of colonialism, though, were “not something from which you could recover, really” (Achebe Interview). This quote says that the policies and the influence the Europeans had placed on the Ibo have gone so deep that a revolt is not what is needed to save because nothing will. The Ibo would have to keep moving forward and adapt.
¨Locusts came once in a generation, reappeared every year for seven years, and then disappeared for another lifetime.¨ A white man appeared out of nowhere to explore the land. The elders warned the Oracle that ¨the strange man would break their clan and spread destruction among them.¨ The Oracle responded by killing the man and tying his horse to a tree. What the elders said became true since the village of Abame was now controlled by the white missionaries, which was the start of their expansion of their religion. The people were too weak and uneducated to fight. The clan was not allowed to do anything unless everyone put a vote on it which did not happen since it was against the law to kill intentionally.
Aimee Huerta February 28, 2016 Chesapeake Bay v. New England Colonies Around the 16th century people left Britain to come to North America (New World) for new opportunities in their lives. They came here for religious reasons, for owning land, and escaping bad situations. Once here they thought their lives were going to be much different, but actually not everyone was lucky enough to have a pleasant life. These English colonies were made for a different reason to help numerous people, but once the two colonies were settled each one had developed very differently. If given the choice in my opinion, the New England region would be the best choice to settle.
He then explained how the indentured servants rarely wore clothes and that they barely got food at all. Religious persecution, another ordeal, led colonists to flee England for America searching for the freedom to express their own religion. An example of this was the Puritans under John Winthrop 's governance. The Puritans made an excursion to New England in hopes of reforming and establishing a new church under God.
Woolen Act: passed in 1699, colonies had to buy wool from England only; protests attempted by using other material instead of wool but did little to bring change . Dominion of New England: James II dispatched a governor (Andros) to enforce the laws in New England but ultimately failed; important because Britain tried to intervene in colonial affairs as early as the seventeenth century . Salutary Neglect: Britain did not act much towards colonists in the time leading up until the Seven Years’ War; time of culture among the colonists diverging away from that of Britain and colonies had to create government among themselves for the most part . Bacon’s Rebellion: poor Virginians wanted land on Native AMerican territory because all the good land had already been taken; Nathaniel Bacon went against the order of Governor William Berkeley and attacked the Native Americans and then
Both colonies the Colony at Plymouth and the Colony at Jamestown had rough conditions in surviving. The colony at Plymouth was more of the American Dream in my opinion. My reason is because they’re based off of religion instead of money and stuff like the colony at Jamestown. Many reasons i have but the first reason is with keeping religion first is the most important thing. The second reason is that money doesn’t just bring happiness ,and money was all the colony at Jamestown cared for.
The Native Americans had never been exposed to these types of infections and diseases before and experience a decrease in their population as family members died from this. For example, the smallpox vaccination was often thought of as a threat by the Native American people. Even in 1796 when Edward Jenner’s demonstration showed how the vaccine helped, the Native Americans still often refused it. They thought it was a way for the “white” people to harm them. After many natives refused to receive the vaccine several died.
