The importance of this history is to show that state of Georgia history may have been different if it was ruled by the Spanish first. 2. 1730: James Oglethorpe James Oglethorpe is known as the founder of Georgia. Oglethorpe requested King George II to create a charter that will created a new North Colony. With hesitation, the King finally accept with a charter issued to Trustees and Oglethorpe was on his way.
Till 1702 the Indian slave trade “had been largely a commercial venture, controlled by Indian middle man and militarized slaving societies” (Ethridge, 194). This means that before 1702 there were some slave traders among the Natives, however, most Natives did not participate in the trading of slaves with Europeans. Yet the war in England, Queen Anne’s war, also came to its colonies. This war led to a competition about the American south between France, Spain, and England. To make sure that either party could win, they sought Native allies.
When the colonies were being established in the United States, there were struggles between white colonists and the Native Americans already living there. Mary Musgrove helped this improve this situation when Georgia was being founded in the seventeenth century. Her blended background gave her skills that helped her bridge both groups. Born in 1700 in South Carolina, Mary Musgrove 's original name was Cousaponakeesa. Her father was white and worked as a trader.

Sir Walter Raleigh appointed a man named John White to be the governor of Roanoke. John White brought over one hundred citizens from England into the colony of Roanoke. With the help from a previously befriended Native American named Manteo, who had been taken to England prior to the third expedition to Roanoke, John White helped settle Roanoke. During the establishment of Roanoke, settlers began to realize they needed more supplies from England. With no knowledge of farming, the settlers became angst to send John White back to England in return for more seeds, food, and supplies for the Roanoke colony.
Puritan Separatists/Plymouth Plantation/Pilgrims/Mayflower Compact: Puritan Separatists were a group of English Puritans who left England to seek religious freedom. They first went to the Netherlands, and in 1620 to America. They were sponsored by Thomas Weston and other merchants who had received a patent for a settlement from the Virginia Company of London. Eighteen families went across the Atlantic in the Mayflower with the agreement that they would send back goods to England to pay for their new land. In November of 1620, the Mayflower landed at Plymouth, outside the bounds of Virginia.
Ponce de Leon was one of the first Spanish explorers in North America. He was the Governor of Puerto Rico and he came to explore Florida. Stories say that he was looking for the Fountain of Youth that Indians had told him about, but really he was capturing Indians to use as slaves. He named the area Florida from the Spanish words for the Easter season, “Pascua florida.” He also tried to establish a colony in North America, but was attacked by Indians and wounded. He went back to Puerto Rico and died there.
The capital city of Asuncion was constructed by colonists first as a stockade fort in 1537. They completed their work on Assumption Day thereby calling the place Asuncion. After the fall of Buenos Aires to Indian tribes in 1541, the settlers there escaped upriver to Asuncion. Due to this, it became the traditional center of Spanish rule in the region. It became the launching point for Jesuit missionaries, as they press further into the interior to establish the famous reducciones of Paraguay.
The Expansion of Georgia came with many conflicts such as the treaty of New York that was established in 1790 and caused the creeks to move west of the Okeene River. There was also the Yazoo land fraud that started in 1795 and caused Georgia to give up all of the land involved in the fraud to Georgia. Indian removal caused a decrease in population within Georgia but made Georgia to gain more land. Events that accrued during that time affected Georgia economy, social growth and population. Abraham Baldwin wrote the first charter for the University of Georgia.
As the united State becoming more of a diversity country, cultural adaptation is becoming the norm, as well as, bicultural identity. “Culture change has traditionally referred to the modifications, revisions, and new manners of expression that result from the process of interaction between cultures.” Robbins,Chatterjee and Canda, (2012) (pg.135). Back when immigrants of slavery were going on (1619) they was forced to culture adaptation of their master/slave owner. When the slave came over to America they were forced to give up their language, religion, child and spouse. According to Takaki, (1993), “From the earliest English settlement in Virginia during the 1600s, colonists were encouraged to take indigenous children from their parents and teach them English and Christianity because they were deemed to be so wrapped up in the fog and misery of their iniquity.” (pg.33).
He was the second-in-command of the Narvaez expedition and had been shipwrecked near Galveston. Cabeza De Vaca and his conquistadors searched for wealth and land in Texas until he was captured and held captive by the Karankawas. 1578 In New Mexico and Texas the Spanish were beginning to establish settlements because they were afraid that the English might settle there before them. They knew the English were planning on settling there because Sir Francis
In 1651 the English Assembly finally passed the first of the Navigation acts. Later on the second and third Navigation acts were passed. The Wampanoag chief in 1675 planned out several attacks on the colonial settlements, this was the start of a new war. In 1703 Delaware was able to have its own assembly, but it remained under the governing of Pennsylvania until the American Revolution had happened.
I created the Job Posting as a way to represent the needs for different trades when settling Virginia. Most likely people would have heard about the opportunity to move by word of mouth, but I felt that a Job Posting would affectively show the need for different types of trades in America. I used images of John White’s water color paintings of Virginia and the Native American Tribe Secotan (Nadie’s homeland) to help make a connection to the story. In A World Away people of different occupations were needed to travel to the New World to help establish a colony. Tom was allowed to follow Nadie back to her land because he was a blacksmith and he was needed.
