Jamestown and Plymouth were the first two successful English on the north side. In this essay will be talking about Jamestown and Plymouth, the ones that made history. That’s why we are talking about them right now or any day. Jamestown was established in 1607 and Plymouth in 1620. These two colonies were different, yet had a number striking similarities in government's, reasons for settlements, and differing economic activities.
There are three main differences between Jamestown and Plymouth, location, purpose, and relationship with the natives. They also struggled through disease and hunger. Yet, they overcame each obstacle and were able to start the foundation of the country we know today. They created their own governments and fended for themselves. Jamestown and Plymouth created New Europe for the people. They proved that generating a new life in the new world is hard, but in the end it is worth
The British colonies in the Chesapeake region and those of the New England region were both similar yet different in certain ways. One because both the colonist that settled there were looking for new opportunities. However, it was mostly second son aristocrats, which means the first born usually inherits the better half of the father’s riches. Their lives in England had either been mistreated or they were unable to flourish economically. Regardless of whether they were searching the land for expansive homesteads, religious freedom, or exchanging and merchant opportunities, the colonist in both regions were searching for another land in the New World. They were getting away from issues they had experienced in England, which took into consideration colonists to be similar.
In the seventeenth century, the Pilgrims left England to head for the “new world” we know today as the Americas with the hopes of finding a place independent of King James and England. In traveling across the vast Atlantic Ocean to live independently the Pilgrims were given the task of creating a successful society. They sought a place to express their religion freely and independent from the restrictions in England. They aspired to make this society succeed in several crucial areas. They pursued strong protection and in very unfamiliar territory in order to keep their people safe and happy. They desired peace whenever possible with surrounding people that they happened to share the land with. The pilgrims were successful in fulfilling
Being the first two well-known places in which the English would set out to colonize in 1607 and 1620, Jamestown, Virginia and Plymouth, Massachusetts hold very separate set of beliefs, standards, and outlooks on life then and the future to come. While paving the way for things such as slavery, taxes, ownership of land, inclusion of women, tobacco and government assemblies, John Smith and the people of Jamestown became a classical foundation for new life and economic growth for the new world that is, the United States. On the other hand, William Bradford and his people began to realize the intentions of the Church of England were unholy and had strayed away from God’s teachings from the Bible. With this in mind, the Pilgrims set on a voyage to the new world to seek religious freedom. As we know it, the Pilgrims sought for peace and a new way of living that was fair, just and free from religious corruptions. While both settlers were met with Natives of the new land, each had two profound differences as to how they went about communicating and living with them.
Jamestown and PLymouth, two discovered lands that was an enormous impact on people 's lives. These lands were similar but they were used different ways. Jamestown was in Virginia while the Plymouth was Massachusetts. Both of these explorers came up with the two places that they had named, Jamestown and Plymouth. In this essay there will be many differences and many similar traits or things that they share in common.
Starting with the development of New England (One of the British colonies in North America), the founders of New England were Pilgrims who founded Plymouth in 1620. These Pilgrims wanted to find The Promised Land, they wanted success. They left on a ship called Mayflower as permission granted by Virginia. 35 Saints and 65 Strangers were on the Mayflower on their journey. They arrived on Plymouth when they accidently went off course. The Pilgrims main goal was to make a government on the land. So, they created the Mayflower Compact, which made everyone follow the laws and rules of the government. They developed a friendship with the Indians shortly after arriving and wanted to develop a trading alliance. Squanto was a Native American, who taught
Jamestown was the first established colony by England, after one of there earlier colony disappeared. The voyage from England to Jamestown was very long and rough the 3 ships carried 144 men and boys who would become the first settlers. The ship crashed and luckily they swam ashore alive, but because of their unawareness Indians attacked them, although they fought them off, there was a big insecurity among them.

What I was taught as a kid about pilgrims and thanksgiving is very misleading. In elementary, I like most kids. Where taught that Christopher Columbus sailed from Europe to the Americas on three ships. Soon after arrival. The English/pilgrim’s made allies with the natives, made homes. And began a huge feast. But this is not completely true.
After the discovery of the New World in the late 1500’s, many Europeans began to colonize the east coast of North America. Two Europeans who colonized the Americas were John Smith, author of The General History of Virginia, and William Bradford, author of Plymouth Plantation. Smith and Bradford both having European backgrounds recorded their journey to America and the establishment of their colonies. However, they both differ in their writing style, objectivity, purpose and tone.
In 1620, 100 Puritan refugees left England in search of not only religious freedom but also economic enterprise. They accidentally sailed into Cape Cod Bay in Massachusetts. Upon arrival, they found cleared land ready for seeding, left by the previous tenants who died due to foreign diseases. The Half of the Pilgrims perished during the first months after their winter arrival. Soon after, they were lucky enough to meet an Indian named Squanto who taught them how to utilize the land and sea. After time, these separatists were able to survive and develop socially, agriculturally and economically.
The Plymouth colony prospered after the first winter and came to be the second lasting English settlement. Plymouth was established in 1620 by the pilgrims. The population of Plymouth started out small with only 102 people, with only half surviving the first winter. After the first winter Plymouth began to prosper. The climate helped keep some diseases at bay. The settlers of Plymouth were hard workers and quickly built plank houses, a meeting house, and gardens. At first the Pilgrims faced minimal threat from the Wampanoag tribe because many died from the smallpox epidemic of 1618. Meanwhile the population of Plymouth colony steadily increased reaching a height of only 7,000 people in 1691.
The people we know as Pilgrims have become so surrounded by legend that we are tempted to forget that they were real people. Against great odds, they made the famous 1620 voyage aboard the ship Mayflower and founded Plymouth Colony, but they were also ordinary English men and women. To understand them, it is important that we look beyond the legend. This story will help you get to know these people, now known as the Pilgrims, through their first years in New England.
