Both the Chesapeake colonies and the New England colonies were vital to Britain’s atlantic trade. They both had large populations and booming economies. However, they both eventually established their own cultures that were different from each other. The colonies’ differing beliefs, environments, and labor lead to the contrasting cultures. The New England Colonies were a Puritanical society, who preached against excess.
B. England and Ireland 1. England spent valuable time subduing Ireland instead of the prosperous Americas. 2. England used the same tactics in colonizing America. C. England and North America 1.
To those living in British America in the 1700’s, religion was a central fixture of everyday life. One’s denomination was intrinsically tied up in one’s ethnic and social identity, and local churches in the mid-Atlantic depended upon the participation and donations of their parishioners to survive. However, as the 18th century progressed, poorer farmers and ministers across the diverse sects of colonial America came to resent the domination of church life by the upper class. In a parallel development, a split had grown between the rationalists, who were typically wealthy, educated and influential men who represented the status quo, and the evangelicals, who disdained the impersonal pretention of the rationalists and promoted a spiritual and
, In order to make as much as possible from these cash crops, english men would come over to be indentured servants. Virginia and Maryland both had huge plantations and urban development, unlike colonies one New England. The main difference in Maryland and Virginia colonies is that Maryland planted other crops than tobacco and had other ways of making money including shipbuilding. Tobacco was not as successful in Maryland due to geographical issues . Both colonies had indentured servants.
The New England, Middle, and Southern colonies were mostly made up the same ethnic groups, but they differed in their major religions. The orignal colonists in American were English, but over time people from France, Germany, and Holland began to settle there as well. Even so, Englishmen were still the majority of the colonies, so their social stucture was similar throughout America. Along with having different religions, the colonies also had different levels of religious freedom. The New England colonies were chiefly Puritan with little to no religious freedom.
One is Congress’s rather argumentative nature when settling terms for independence, and the other is their handling of the distribution of supplies. In terms of the first, it is important to note that there was a well defined argument over whether or not to even declare independence. This, obviously, is a division that proved material at the time, and, as it happens, led to the compromise adopted in 1775 by the Congress known as the Olive Branch Petition (42). The Olive Branch Petition declared that the colonists, while annoyed by tax regulations and fearful of the “parliamentary troops”, were still loyal to their King and took issue only with Parliament. This compromise came about because of the difference in opinion between many of the delegates as to whether or not independence was in the best interest of the colonies.
On the other hands, the Loyalists were a portion of the population in the American Colonies who wanted remain loyal to the King or stay part of Britain. One reason why people became Patriots was because in 1765 the parliament of England passed the Stamp Act; this Act imposed all American colonist to pay taxes on every piece of printed paper including Legal documents, Newspaper, and Ships papers. The law was offensive to the Patriots, that felt that
As colonies developed in the Americas, various similarities emerged between them. In New England, this included a tendency to oppose control in religious and political aspects. Many colonies formed in the search for religious freedom; however, this was often seen as a threat to the king’s authority. Religious differences often created conflict between the colonies and royal control.
After King Charles death in the year 1692, King James II later took over and merged the Massachusetts Bay Colony into what is known as the Dominion of New England. The main reason King James II merged the colonies was because he wanted to tighten his control over what went on in the New England colonies. Later in the year 1691, the new royal family, King William and Queen Mary issued a charter that had a lot of anti-religious aspects. Instead of giving Salem the original and much simpler charter, King William and Queen Mary decide to combine Salem with the many of the surrounding colonies. The new charter by King William and Queen Mary wasn’t much different from the earlier charter created by King James II.
When people think about who shaped early America, they often imagine George Washington, Ben Franklin, or Thomas Jefferson. While these founding fathers did shape America, an earlier group of settlers who impacted how American was formed were the puritans. After settling in New England, the puritan’s ideas and beliefs shaped how their were societies formed and their interactions with others. Puritan ideas and values influenced political, economic and social development by creating a closed and strict society based on religious beliefs, which ultimately lead to the formation of successful colonies.
The religion in Britain was a version of the Protestant faith referred to as the Church of England while the religion in the colonies varied. In the colonies, there were several different forms of Protestant religions. During this time period, many of the colonists were re-invigorated in their faith. This time period of revitalized faith was entitled the Great Awakening, and by reviving the colonists’ faith, their ideology changed. This changed in ideology was a key part in why the relationship between the mother country and its colonies destabilized.
Although pursuit of religious freedom lied at the very foundation of New England, in the middle and southern colonies it played a smaller role, and instead democracy and slavery respectively played the primary roles. The New England colonies, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland were conceived and established “as plantations of religion”. Some settlers who arrived in these areas came for
The New England colonies include Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Connecticut. The first settlers that came into the New England colonies were the Puritans who wanted to practice religious freedom. Unfortunately, most of these colonies are not tolerant of other religions. The self-government economy is based on religious beliefs. Finally, the colonies rely on fishing and shipbuilding since the soil and long winters are unsuitable for farming.
Southerners had incorporated a more democratic policy in 1939 in their polity, but such a distance from tradition did not include a change in racial attitudes and how they view people of different color and race. Thus, even while the national church preached a gospel of racial equality, the white supremacist doctrine of the MECS influenced southern Methodist congregations for many
