In the early 17th century England already had planted their seeds in the New World. Traveling aboard the Susan Constant in 1607, 104 settlers landed in Virginia, in which they established Jamestown. Jamestown became the first successful permanent English settlement in the Americas. Thirteen years later, 102 settlers (all being families) departed from Holland heading towards Virginia in the Mayflower. Lost and misguided they ended up higher up north than expected, making them land in Massachusetts Bay, where they established Plymouth Rock.

CHAPTER THREE RESISTING NARATIVES: CULTURAL RESILIENCE IN SILKO’S CEREMONY AND BRUCHAC’S CODE TALKER The Native Americans, the first inhabitants of the Americas, migrated from Siberia by crossing the Beringia, a land bridge which connected Siberia to present day Alaska over 30,000 years ago. Their migration stopped about 11,000 years ago with the submergence of the land bridge by the rising ocean floor. These early inhabitants, named Paleoamericans, settled in the new land they reached and soon branched out into many hundreds of culturally distinct nations and kindreds.

The Dutch were the first to settle in New York in 1624. Two years later they made the colony New Amsterdam on Manhattan Island. In the year 1664 the English took control of the colony and renamed it New York after the Duke of York. Although the Netherlands only controlled the Hudson River Valley from 1609 until 1664, in that time, Dutch entrepreneurs established New Netherland, a series of trading posts, towns, and forts up and down the Hudson River that laid the groundwork for towns that still exist today. The slow expansion of New Netherland, however, caused conflicts with both English colonists and Native Americans in the region.
Pennsylvania The starting of a new new nation began with one man; William Penn. William Penn founded a piece of land that was just like all the rest of the land. He named it Pennsylvania, meaning “The forests of Penn.” Pennsylvania became a state on December 12, 1787.
After the American Revolution, and almost like a child, American was born. And it was born from the hand of the dubbed Founding Fathers of the United States, a name that just reinforces the image of America as a child. However, the figure of the child was not introduced in the country by its revolution. It was already present in early literature, especially in Puritanism. Two of the authors that extensively wrote about children and their lives in Puritan American were Anne Bradstreet and Edward Taylor.
Erasmus Hall, the oldest high school in New York City can also be found at this intersection. Flatbush played a key role in the American Revolution. The Dutch were prominent in the slave trade, and Kings County at the time had the highest concentration of slaves

On their way to Chesapeake Bay White and his men were going to pick up Grenville 's men from the Roanoke fort and take them to the new colony, but when White 's ship landed at Roanoke on July 22, 1587 they only found the skeleton of a Englishmen.

After moving further into the harbour, on 26 January 1788 Phillip raised the British flag at Sydney Cove. 751 convicts and their children disembarked, along with 252 marines and their families. Two more convict fleets arrived in 1790 and 1791, and the first free settlers arrived in 1793. From 1788 to 1823, the Colony of New South Wales was officially a penal colony comprised mainly of convicts, soldiers and the wives of soldiers.
How did they governed the colony? Delaware had a government completely independent from Pennsylvania. In 1787, Delaware became the first colony to make an agreement with the U.S. Constitution, and hence became America’s first state .Delaware was then governed as part of Pennsylvania from 1682 until 1701, when the Lower Counties present a formal request for and were granted an independent colonial legislature, though the two colonies shared the same governor until 1776, when Delaware ' assembly voted to break all ties with both Great Britain and Pennsylvania. Delaware, became known as “The Lower Counties on the Delaware”.
Before the Commonwealth was settled by Europeans, the area was home to the Delaware (also known as Lenni Lenape), Susquehannock, Iroquois, Eriez, Shawnee, and other American Indian Nations. Both the Dutch and the English claimed both sides of the Delaware River as part of their colonial lands in America. The Dutch were the first to take possession. By June 3, 1631, the Dutch had begun settling the Delmarva Peninsula by establishing the Zwaanendael Colony on the site of present-day Lewes, Delaware. In 1638, Sweden established the New Sweden Colony, in the region of Fort Christina, on the site of present-day Wilmington, Delaware. New Sweden claimed and, for the most part, controlled the lower Delaware River region (parts of present-day Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania) but settled few colonists there. Penn
