Inaccurate Colonial History

303 Words2 Pages
The colonial placards describes what life was like in the colonies in terms of life on a farm and life in cities. Reading these placards about colonial times and life in the colonies helped me determine which of the headlines from London Chronicle were accurate, and which ones were inaccurate. Most of the headlines I read ended up being inaccurate. The headline “Study Shows Farmers Spend Several Hours Playing Cards Each Day” was inaccurate. This headline is inaccurate because farmers spent most of their day working on the farm. The majority of a farmer’s day consisted of preparing food. Some foods that were prepared were sausage, hog pudding, wine, cider, and butter. Farmers also learned how to pickle certain fruits and vegetables.
