Amid the late 16th century and into the 17th century, European nations quickly inhabited the new lands called the Americas. England sent out multiple groups to two regions in the eastern coast of North America. Those areas were called the Chesapeake and the New England locations. Later, in the end of the1700 's, these two locations would combine to create one nation. However originally both areas had very different and distinctive identities.
Before the colonization establishment on the Western hemisphere, the indigenous people lived there for a long time utilizing the rich resources of that land. However, when explorations were guided by leaders of the old world, colonization being to take place in different part of the new world. Each of the Spinach, French and English approached colonization and formed dominant empires on what is now known as the Americas. The empires initiated different relationships with the local people based on how the empire and its people interact with them. Additionally, massive changes took place on both of the new and old world that led to convulse each of the two Americas, Europe and Africa.
Although all the colonists all came from England, the community development, purpose, and societal make-up caused a distinct difference between two distinct societies in New England and the Chesapeake region. The distinctions were obvious, whether it be the volume of religious drive, the need or lack of community, families versus single settlers, the decision on minimal wage, whether or not articles of agreements were drawn for and titles as well as other social matters were drawn, as well as where loyalties lay in leaders. New England was, overall, more religious than the Chesapeake region. Settlers in New England were searching relief for religious persecution in Europe. Puritans, Quakers, and Catholics were coming in droves to America searching for an opportunity to have religious freedom.
The first colony was founded at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607. Many of the people who settled in the New World came to escape religious persecution and various other reasons. In this paper we will explore the many roles both male and female colonists as well as Native Africans played. In the colonies gender played a large role in everyday life. Men 's roles and Females roles throughout the colonies differed vastly from today 's cultural norms.
The arrival of the first Europeans in the Americas is dramatically captured through the many writers who attempted to communicate what they saw, experienced and felt. What is more, the very purposes of their treacherous travel and colonization are clearly seen in their writings; whether it is poetry, history or sermons. Of the many literary pieces available today, William Bradford and John Winthrop’s writings, even though vary because the first is a historical account and the second is a sermon, stand out as presenting a clear trust in God, the rules that would govern them and the reason they have arrived in the Americas. First of all, William Bradford provides an in-depth look into the first moment when the Puritans arrived in the Americas. In fact, he chronicles the hardships they face on their way to Plymouth, yet he includes God’s provision every step of the way.
Comparison between Early American Colonies There are many similarities and differences that followed the European colonization of the North American continent, all in a time of exploration and of searching for the unknown. Many voyages were made to try to make the best possible colony, and many approaches were used whether they were English, French, Spanish, or Dutch. The purpose of this paper is to mainly focus on the two English colonies of Jamestown, Virginia and Plymouth, Massachusetts. While coming from the same English culture, the explorers present two vastly different colonies. We will focus on three main categories: the incentive for the creation each colony, the governance differences, and the treatment of the local Native American
Although there are many reasons why the American Revolution started, a few of them had a larger consequence. First, the Boston Massacre had a major impact on the American Revolution. To continue, another instigator to the colonists seeking their independence was the Boston Tea Party. Lastly, The Battles of Lexington and Concord really pushed towards the American Revolution. Let us begin with how the Boston Massacre had a significant impact on the American Revolution.

When the Puritans first traveled to America, they dreamt of creating a religious city on a hill with conformity to strict community values, hard-working colonists, educated citizens and a strong theocratic government; however, the end of Puritan dominance led to the creation of a new vision for a “perfect” society with values to fit the growing nation. After the Act of Supremacy in 1534, England became a protestant country united under the Church of England. The Puritans were a sect of Protestants, who believed that the Anglican Church was not yet fully reformed. One especially radical group, the Separatists, believed the Church of England was past reform and desired to separate from the church entirely. These Separatists were persecuted
Throughout history there has been plenty of change in religion, leaders, and types of government. But to come to change, there has to be forces to cause the change. A few of these forces are ideology, inequality, and struggle. Ideology has caused modification of our government.

With varying social, economic, and religious disjunctions, the New England and Chesapeake regions both evolved into two distinct societies by the start of the 18’th century. Religious incentives served a major role in the separation of the two quickly forming regions. The colonies the New England region consisted
In 1764 through 1774, Great Britain continuously passed taxes on many items used by the colonists of America. This lead to the colonists writing the declaration of independence. In colonial Williamsburg today, people can learn about the rebellious acts of the Americans during the revolution. Although There are many historical buildings that can inform visitors of Williamsburg’s past, the capitol building stands out from the rest. The capitol building was very important to the American Revolution, teaches people about America’s past government, and supports the motto, “that the future may learn from the past.” The capitol had much more importance during the revolution than the Bruton Parish Church, The Magazine, or the Governors palace.
As the English tried to remake New Netherland into New York and the French attempted to transform New France, Maryland and Virginia experienced drastic changes. These contributed to, and were accelerated by, Bacon’s Rebellion a complex set of events in 1675–1676 that involved war between colonists and Indians as well as a civil war in which whites of every social rank and enslaved Africans joined to topple Virginia’s governor. By the early 1680s, Virginia resembled Barbados. It too had become a society dependent on slavery and founded on the principle of white supremacy. Bacon’s Rebellion remade Virginia’s borders and its politics.
The world American colonies changed and became more complex. The population in the English colonies increased greatly and most of the immigrants came from England and. The economy was built on and by trade and this increased economic wealth through the Atlantic. The American religious and cultural life changed because they were pushing Christianity to the natives and salves.
With the development of a civilized society in America during the 1700s and 1800s, the role religion played in an everyday person 's life was becoming more and more weekended. To counter this, a series of religious revivals were set in motion, The Great Awakenings. These were a series of large, sweeping religious, social, and political changes that looked to use the basis of religion to revive faith in a neglected belief, bring about numerous social reforms, and use political groups to great effect on society 's mentality. In this easy we will detail the key participants, the causes and the consequences of the First and Second Great Awakenings in America. The First Great Awakening was a religious revival from the 1730s-1770s, which would
