The families that came to New England were able to settle and govern like “a city upon a hill”, as an example to John Winthrop's ideas in 1630 (Doc C), even though they were not expected to be capable of creating a governing system. One noticeable between the two systems of government, was the fact that people in New England had a chance to rise on the social and political chain unlike people in Chesapeake region. Due to Bacon's Rebellion, people in Virginia were worried about others going against the crown and it was not possible for people to reach a higher status because of it. The differences in the two colonies made the possibility for government either possible, or completely
Sir Walter Raleigh was an English explorer who became a favorite of Queen Elizabeth after he severed in her army. He was the half-brother of Sir Humphrey Gilbert who went lost at sea in the efforts of trying to cross the North Atlantic in an attempt to colonize the North America. Sir Walter Raleigh was knighted in 1584 and sought to establish a colony. Between 1585 and 1589, he helped establish a colony near Roanoke Island, which is on the coast of what is now North Carolina, and he named the colony Virginia. He chose these name in honor of the virgin queen, Elizabeth.
Starting in the early 1600’s settlers from England came to “The New World.” England and Spain were competing to claim this new undiscovered land. The English were the first to claim the land by sending the first group of settlers, the Chesapeake settlers. They settled in present day Virginia and Maryland. The Chesapeake settlers came for commercial and profit. the New England settlers came a few years later and resided in present day Massachusetts.
In fact, “ New York and Philadelphia were home to a wide range of ethnic and religious groups. (__________)” New York and Philadelphia become prominent centers of commerce and finance; thus, they thrived in manufacturing, flour milling, lumbering, and mining, which were all key components in its revenue and trading network. In order to have these working businesses and industries prosper, the Mid- Atlantic colonies relied heavily on indenture servants: men who came to work in exchange for free passage into the Americas. Once these men came into the Americas, they were brought into a world brought into a world of religious tolerance of various groups, and they were brought into the political domination of the Quakers, a group devoted to the Religious Society of Friends, and the merchant, who sold goods to the other
The land was extremely important to the people, and still is today. The more land you have, the more power and wealth. England gave the colonies a part of the land in the east region of North America. The west side belonged to the French. The colonies became greedy and wanted more land to expand and increase their wealth.
Two different colonies that started out on the land of America around the same time period, Plymouth, and Jamestown; they sailed to America for the same reason, freedom. Known as the Puritans, Plymouth came to America for the freedom of religion, and they did not want to associate themselves with the Church of England. Similar to the Puritans, the Jamestown colonists arrived in the New World in search for gold, silver and precious stones. During the arrival these colonists expected to receive many goods from the America in exchange of a small amount of labor. Although the colonies have a similar desire coming to America, each colony' perspective toward the New World differed.
In the year of 1624 Virginia fell under the rule of a royal colony and existed under the authority of a governor chosen by the king of England. The king did this because he believed that the London company could not protect the colonists. The mayflower compact
Upon their arrival to the North American continent, the Jamestown settlers had to deal with the numerous problems of a newly settled and distant colony, and Powhatan influences, as well as the discovery of the events that would improve their developing society. Although England learned of America’s existence years before their Jamestown settlement was established, there did not exist any accurate map of the Virginian geography until after the settlement had already been established. As a consequence of this, many settlements started on the American coastline and developed from there, yet these settlements would still struggle to exist while the colonists became familiar with their new found surroundings. Being unfamiliar with the environment, the first settlers had a difficult time navigating, expanding the settlement, and farming sufficient crops.
William Bradford was present to many of the important developments in the New World. He signed the Mayflower Compact, he explored much of New England, and was Governor from 1621 to 1656. The History of Plymouth Plantation begins with the Separatists creation, the Reformation and Persecution, the Arrival and Removal of Holland, the Separatists voyage across the ocean and landing at Cape Cod, and goes through the hardships of the settlers as well. Bradford did not begin the transcript until 1630 and it was not published fully until 1856. For those reasons I believe, the purpose of writing the manuscript was for personal reasons; a type of therapy.
