Most think of Colonial America as the United State’s first stake in land. Some think of it in relation to Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving special episode. While some truth holds to both of the previous statements, many do not understand or care to know the differences between each colony. From farming to foreign contact, each colony had different ways of living and standards within their society. In 1620, the Plymouth Colony was founded after a nine-week voyage across a great ocean with tremendous storms and hardships.
Jamestown Jamestown, is located off the James River in Virginia, USA. Jamestown is important to American history because it was the first English colony. In the early 1600’s, a group of 100 members of a Virginia company, paid for ships to come from England, where they founded the first permanent English settlement in North America on the banks of the James River. During the 1620s, Jamestown expanded from the area around the original James Fort into a New Town built to the east. Jamestown remained the capital of the Virginian colony until 1699.
Paul Revere shouted throughout his midnight ride, “The Regulars are coming!” He was an American Patriot in the American Revolution who lived in Boston at the time. His lifespan was from 1735 to 1818, during the American Revolution. One of his famous quotes was “In Medford, I awakened the Captain of the Minutemen; and after that, I alarmed almost every house, till I got to Lexington.” Paul Revere is important to history because if he didn't warn Lexington about the British, America itself might not be known as America. Paul Revere was born January 1, 1735, in Boston, Massachusetts. His father was Apollos Rivoire, a French immigrant who came to America on his own at the age of 13, and Deborah Hichborn, a Boston native and the daughter of an artisan family Paul was important to history because he saved a lot of lives by warning Lexington about the British and that they were coming.
In the third and final war, the new king of Mataram had two challengers up against the throne. After these wars, control in Java was almost non-existent but, the Dutch East India company continued to rule over the islands. In 1800, the Dutch East India company went bankrupt and for years after this, the control of the island was unstable. In 1816, the government of Holland took control of the island and replaced the role that the Dutch East India company had, but did not have absolute control until 1830. There was another war between the Dutch and
Thomas Jefferson changed the future of the American nation by purchasing the Louisiana Territory, being friendly and popular with the people, and writing the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson’s purchase of the Louisiana Territory changed the United States. In 1803 Jefferson bought the Territory from France.

When the World War II ended, people from all over the world immigrated to Australia and influenced the local community obviously; Jock Collins stated: “it really has been the defining characteristic of Australian society”. However there were limitations before 1945, the policy was totally changed that, immigrants had to stay and work in Australia minimum two years. Thus, until 1952, Federal Government had signed immigrations with not only European counties, but also with non-Europeans.
After the French Revolution, a Corsican artillery officer, named Napoleon Bonaparte, became the emperor of France in 1804. After playing a significant role in trying retake the French port of Toulon, occupied by the British, he was appointed general at the age of 26 in 1793. This marked the beginning of the Napoleonic Era, which would change the course of European history for centuries. However, despite claiming to be a strong supporter of the French Revolution, Napoleon mostly undermined the goals of the Revolution by violating the Declaration of the Rights of Man, insisting on returning to principles of the Old Regime in regards to women, the imposition of taxes and the re-establishment of the social elite. Nonetheless, Napoleon still supported the main goals of the Revolution by establishing the Civil Code and supporting the peasantry by lowering bread prices.
The term "Founding Father" is given to the men who fought for American liberation from Britain in the 18th century and proceeded to build an independent country from the ground up. Certain names are almost synonymous with the term founding father – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin for example. However, one man who embodied the American Dream before the term was even coined and had an enormous role in shaping America is Alexander Hamilton. Undoubtedly a lesser known figure to the general public, Hamilton is probably best known to most Americans for being on the 10-dollar bill. Hamilton was born in 1757 on the island of Nevis in the West Indies before he arrived in the colonies as an orphaned teenager, hoping to get a
Traveling aboard the Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery, 104 men disembarked on the coast of Virginia in 1607 in a colony that they named Jamestown. This was the first permanent English settlement in the so called “New World”. Thirteen years later, 102 men on board the Mayflower, came ashore in Massachusetts, in a colony known as the Plymouth Plantation. The Jamestown and Plymouth colonies were the first English colonies to be established in North America. Although many people do not acknowledge these two colonies, they helped us compose America.

In 1806 Sacagawea and her husband leave the expedition to stay behind in Fort Madan. On September 1806 they finally arrived at St. Louis for the end of the expedition. At the end of the expedition Jefferson stated "The expedition of Messrs. Lewis and Clark...has had all the success which could have been expected. they have traced the Missouri nearly to its source, descended the Columbia to the Pacific Ocean, ascertained with accuracy the geography...across our continent, learned the character of the country, of its commerce and inhabitants, and...have by this arduous service deserved well of their country."
Oceania theory suggests that people came across the Pacific Ocean. Linguists and anthropologists noticed that the culture and languages of South America had oddly similar traits to those of Australia and Polynesia. This theory would also mean people would have had to use boats. The best evidence of this theory is the finding of the Kennewick Man. The 9,500-year old Kennewick skeletal remains were found in Washington State in the nineties.
First off, both colonies were settle by English settlers around the 16th century. When settling the Chesapeake Bay, King James 1 chartered a joint stock called the Virginia Company for explicit religious mission.

The New England region was made up of middle class families that were able to pay their way across the Atlantic.
