Even though the soil was weak in quality and very rocky, they still managed to farm some crops including corn, rye, peas, squash and pumpkins. In their farms they would raise various animals such as chicken, sheep, cows and pigs. In their towns, most people were very helpful towards each other. They would help their neighbors if they needed to build a barn or if they had had a week harvest. They wouldn’t use African slaves because the farms were either too small or too poor.

Puritans had self-government. They made rules for themselves, religion effected a very large part of the government for example only male church members could vote or be part of the government. In the middle colonies, it wasn’t only dominated by one religion which gave into more liberal attitudes and religious freedom. In colonies such as New York and New Jersey which were royal colonies, the governor was chosen by the British government. In Proprietary colonies, the proprietors had the right to choose the governor.
He had about three roles as a king: being like a priest, being commander, and being supreme justice. The Ancient Egypt rituals were all passed by him, fortunately he had the help of assistants and advisors. If any female would be in the same position, as being divine, she would become king. From what I’ve learned they would use the same clothing as a male king. In comparison,
For example look at Mesopotamia, once farming started their women were bound to house chores because the men were tending the fields. With the men taking over the essential jobs making them the reason why they survive a patriarchy developed where the man rules the house and men can hold high up political offices and women can’t, making men the center of attention because they are ruling and supporting the lives of the women and children. Like in China under the Shang Dynasty male children were preferred and women were hardly seen outside of their home unless they were peasants. Social classes or ones rank in society popped up too
Whites had slaves work their mines and farms, the two most important jobs at the time. Without the slaves, no one was there to take care of their families and maintaining submission was the rule of the land. However, it was arguable that colored people were the main reason that the country was striving. It was so unfair that slaves built this country off of their diligent and humbled work ethic, yet they were still viewed as being far inferior to whites.
As the lowest in the social hierarchy, serfs, one of the two classes of the peasantry, were also an integral part of feudal society. Serfs agreed to serve the lord because what they received in exchange fulfilled their needs. It was dangerous for them to live alone in the countryside where bandits could kill, attack, and steal (Ahlin 1). Peasants who could not defend themselves agreed to become serfs in return for the protection provided by the lord, which allowed them to live behind his walls in safety (Ahlin 1). In addition to this military protection they received legal protection and the right to draw water from the lord’s rivers, cut trees from his forest, and use the pastures (Nardo 25).
Also as adults died their kids would also take their place as well because the children of slaves were also enslaved, so when they old enough to do and learn the basics of slave labor they would be put to work too. Owners did not have to pay wages, house them or feed the slaves properly, because the owners knew that they already owned them as property, so they did not have to pay them. The owners only had to feed the slaves enough so that they could work the next day. The living conditions of the slaves were horrendous, they pretty much lived on top of one and another in small quarters that were located in the backyard of the house of the owners. Similar to the treatment of indentured servants, slaves were being harassed and
There were small city-states run by a singular ruler. Most of the population were poor farmers, that had no idea what was happening within the country. Obviously this system was not the best. Eventually countries found a more efficient way of running their countries. A single ruler began to consolidate the power from the city-states and make a more uniform government for the country.
Qin Shi Huangdi and Caesar Augustus’s domination of multiple empires during their different lifetimes is what lead to them gaining the title of the first emperor of their empires.

But, having great power was a substantial responsibility. They constantly had to show dedication to their empires, so the people never doubted why they were in power.
The caste system was a widely used practice among many civilizations. it was what developed social organization in both positive and negative ways for some civilizations. For example, in Babylonia, during Hammurabi 's time, rights were given based on a caste system. The Indians caste system had their priests (Brahmins) as the highest due to how strongly they believed in their religion.

All African Americans did their whole life was farming so that was the only thing they knew how to do well because most of them didn’t even have an education.

Even though the men spend a great deal away from home they were still in charge of their household.
