Compare the backgrounds of Jefferson and Paine; did Paine have an advantage or disadvantage by not being born in the colonies? Explain. Paine had the advantage of being able to see the issues from the outside and from a lower point of society. To be able to understand a bigger group of people is far more of an advancement than to always target the smaller group. Which was the cause of the colonies not wanting to be under rule.
Northern Carolina and Southern Carolina Northern Carolina and Southern Carolina were very different. In Northern Carolina their main crop was tobacco instead of rice and many of the early settlers came from Virginia. The sounds were not deep enough to permit seaports, so the northern settlers kept their ties to Virginia in order to have a port from which they could ship tobacco. In Southern Carolina their main crop was rice and Indians were the first slaves the southern settlers had, and later African Americans took their place. Three counties that were in the Southern Carolina is Berkeley County, Colleton County, and Craven County. Northern and Southern Carolina had many different things about them like crops and settlers.
Thesis: From my understanding, during the process of the economy’s expansion; the reason for this, are due to, immigration and better opportunities. Immigrants, from Southern and Eastern Europe outnumbered cities, by over one to three million people. There were, of course, other reasons for this expansion; The laissez-faire was the reason for this as well. They were the policy that wouldn’t deal with free trade, free enterprise, as well as, marketing.

The North and South emerged as two distinct regions because they had various differences. These differences included the geography, the economy, climate, societal norms, and transportation methods. These differences substantially affected their identity and how each region functioned. One of the most striking difference between the North and South was the climate and geography.

The Chesapeake Bay was a southern plantation system; the slaves worked on self-sufficient on tobacco plantation, the African salves replace the indentured servants. Cultural distinctions between Africans and Afro- Americans developed in the Chesapeake as well. In the early seventeenth century, black and white servants worked together on plantations, using English agricultural practices. Masters were conditioned by custom to provide food and shelter for their servants.

One example of how revolutionary it was is the fact that lots of the governmental system of America changed from a Monarchy (the King) to a Democracy. The Revolution did not have a large impact on society other than it became less British because of the lessening amount of British military in America. Also a lot of people became much less loyal to Britain. In the region of economics, the Revolution did not play huge role either because nothing really dramatically changed. The south still relied on plantation farming, north still milled and cut lumber.
The southern colonies were all agriculturally based but they had different structures due to how and by whom each was founded. Jamestown, Virginia and the Carolinas were structured very much on a hierarchy like the English feudal system. They had large plantation owners who were like the lords in England. They were dependent upon slaves and indentured servants (sort of like debtors). Even though the West Indies were also dominated by plantations, there was still a separation because it was French controlled.
The Middle colonies believed in more of a diverse culture with multiple religions, cultures, languages, etc. Now there’s the economy. The New England colonies were more of an industrial type of economy because most of their land was infertile. The Middle colonies mostly just relied on farmers, craftsmen, and merchants. The

New England and the Middle Colonies share some similarities based on religion and other things as well. Some similarities were that the church was an important part of both New England and Middle Colonies towns.
