First of all, both colonies came to America, but they came for different reasons, one came for Religion and the other came to get rich. Both of those reasons are good reasons to come to America, but if you don't care about others and don't want to help others like the Jamestown colony did, their is no good reason to come to America. Basically, Jamestown was a very bad built colony that didn't really care about nobody but themselves and money and the Plymouth Plantation was a colony that that cared about people's safety and wanted to have freedom of religion so that they could be free to practice whatever they wanted. In conclusion the Plymouth Plantation and Jamestown are very different and alike in many ways and it is very interesting to see how this country's ancestors were and how different the colonies were. The Plymouth were nice people and Jamestown was filled with selfish and greedy
Urban vs Rural values were considered social discord because the urban society was more tolerate while the rural society was more conservative and old school. Science vs Religion was considered cultural and political discord because it showed that religion was prioritized over education. Red scare was considered social and and economic discord due to the problems that they faced with the immigrants and the KKK. All of these issues will lead the U.S. to the Great
After the expeditions of Christopher Columbus in 1492 the new world would become to be the Americas, but first the establishment of the colonies would arise. Bringing forth the settlers and gentry to launch the new world into existence, which would be hard because of the many different settlers viewed. Although the struggles of the colonies and differences were many theirs unity among them prevailed. The 13 colonies were divided by six sub-regions which were New England, Atlantic Islands, Caribbean, Middle Colonies, and the Lower South. The southern regions are composed of five different states Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
They did much of the labor work for the southern colonies cash crops. New England colonies had a hot/humid climate so they weren’t able to do any farming like the southern colonies. The New England colonies did not have slaves, this is a big difference between the two and many slaves form the southern colonies would try to escape to the New England colonies since slaving wasn’t allowed there. But the New
This colony was formed by a group of Separatists, Puritans that believed the Anglican Church was too corrupt and could not be reformed so they formed their own church. On their way to America, they formed the Mayflower Compact, creating a form of government with rule by the majority. Upon landing in the New World, many perished due to starvation, but by forming an alliance with native people, they were able to survive. The Plymouth Colony never thrived, however, there were never more than 7,000 colonists, and they were not able to export many goods to England2. Plymouth illustrates that while a colony can retain the mission with which it initially began, a utopian colony is not able to progress as well as a non-utopian colony, forcing it to either change or remain small and weak.
On the other hand, Powhatan and his men optically discerned the incipient English settlement as great opportunity for them to exploit. The Natives believed that the Europeans are “edgy, rapacious, and remotely maladroit.” Sure enough, the settlers in Jamestown kenned little about farming and found the environment baffling. It was conspicuous that the colonists needed the avail of the Natives. Despite their inexperience the English dominated the Indians. From “the beginning the Virginia Company indited that the relationship would ineluctably become bellicose: for you Cannot Carry Your Selves so towards them but they will Grow Discontented with Your habitation.” In the Massachusetts Bay Colony, the Puritans, at first, established a good relationship with a Native American tribe called the Pequots.
Bell Ringer 9-1 How did the failure of Roanoke affect how much/ little individuals wanted come to the New World?

He emphasizes that organized religion and sects are more focused on following specific rules and practices, than concentrating on really understanding God and His ideas of humility, moral behavior and virtue. Benjamin Franklin tolerates and accepts people who have different mindsets and commit themselves to organized religions; however, even though Franklin believes in God and His creations, he considers organized religion as something that does not inspire morality and, instead, creates a hostile environment among people. The importance of religion is reflected through its use for society. Many people left their homes in Great Britain to start a new life in a foreign country they were not accustomed
The Europeans were notorious for invading foreign lands and finding the natives inferior to their ways, usual because the natives weren’t living like the Europeans. The Native Americans were no exception, the Europeans once found the natives tractable and peaceful. However, they knew little about the natives and took their peaceful nature as weakness. Furthermore, the Europeans thought the natives were inferior was because of their way of life, their religion and the color of their skin. The Europeans cared little about the Native American way of life, they only cared about exploiting the resources of the Natives home; this meant both natural and human.
In New England, there was no such thing as religious tolerance. Everyone was required to be part of the Church of England whether they believed or not. This led to a disagreement among those who believed that those who were not “visible saints” should not be allowed to worship in the same place as those who were. These colonists were referred to as the Separatists because they eventually separated from the Church of England. Those who chose to stay with the church were called Puritans, although that term could technically be used to describe both.
Colonial settlements shared very few similarities. In fact, the single uniting trait that they all had in common was what continent they were settled upon. Two regions, the Chesapeake Bay area and New England, both developed with significant variations. The differences in societal development between the New England Colonies and the Chesapeake Bay Colonies was due to the difference in the primary religion of the majority of settlers in the specific area and the people who desired to settle there which would help lead to the development of vastly different societies in the areas, the difference in climate, soil fertility and availability of resources in each area which would lead to the development of two different economies, and the form of
They rejected the British government 's argument that all British subjects enjoyed virtual representation in Parliament, even if they could not vote for member of the Parliament.” This means that the colonists did not enjoy the Parliament so they rejected Britain 's argument because they did not agree with it. Some people started hinting that there was dark designs behind the Stamp Act. The thought that “the tax was a gradual plot to deprive the colonists of their freedoms and to enslave them beneath a tyrannical regime.” People were very worried about this and they did not want it to happen. They just wanted to live in America with their
Before anything Puritans came to the New World looking for freedom from the British Crown. While in their empire they had to obey the New England church, in which they absolutely hated. So it was promised that in the Americas they would not only have religious freedom the the chance to own their own land and properties, and lots of it. At first Salutary Neglect came to the colonize where Britain tried to impose laws or “acts” to the colonized but they were never truly enforced. One act that the colonies never approved and greatly hated was the Tea Act of 1773.
The individuals from the Virginia Colony and the Massachusetts Bay Colony came to the new country for both very similar reasons, the main reason being so that they could have freedom within their colonies and to be free from the church and practice their own religion. The puritans and the pilgrims from the Netherlands but they wanted their children to keep the English traditions. The fishing and hunting conditions were not good in this area. Some colonists traded American Indians corn for beaver fur. The economy was bad because the king raised taxes but when they started making the tobacco plantations helped the economy out.
