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
The Middle Colonies are located in between the New England and Southern Colonies. The Middle Colonies consist of New York founded in 1624, Delaware in 1638, Pennsylvania in 1643, and New Jersey in 1660. These four colonies were different, economically and socially, in many ways because they got a mix of the other two colonies and made it their own. New York was founded the British acquired more land from the Dutch. New York was called New Netherlands and was ruled by the Dutch governor Peter Stuyvesant before the British took it over. New Jersey was made because New York was to big for the Duke of York to rule. He gave the land to his friends, Lord Berkeley and George Carteret, as proprietors. The colony of Pennsylvania was made so William
New England Colonies subsistence, family operated farm and business economy dependent upon small farmers and merchants. The Southern area was significant slave population provided most labor for the large plantations. New England families provided most labor on their farms and in their
LEQ prompt 1 During the period between 1607 and 1754, the British had established colonies in North America, inspired by the riches and wealth gained by the Spanish upon the conquest of the Aztecs and Incas in the 16th century, the early British settlements had hoped for the same riches and discoveries in the northern Americas. The first successful permanent settlement was established in Jamestown Virginia, and as time advances the English established thirteen colonies divided geographically into three regions: new England, middle and southern colonies. Socially the English colonists were similar by the means that they shared an English heritage but differed greatly in lifestyle, politically and economically the colonies had many differences,
The New England Colony, Middle Colony, and Southern Colony, They have different soil, religion, trading, and education. The first colony we have is the New England Colony it has long winters and thin, rocky soil which made farming difficult. Subsistence farming was practiced by the farmers since the soil was thin and rocky and they generally produced enough to feed their families. Which led to cash crops to sell or exchange their leftovers, The trade in New England was a triangular trade.(Article 3). The education for the Middle colonies was not universal but widespread.
Over the past few months, business has been stable throughout the colonies. The leading occupation in these colonies is farming. Although farmers produced a lot of crops, their income was dependent on the value and quality of the crop itself. Agriculture plays a vital role in American economy, and there is evidently some strengths and weaknesses in this business.
The settling of the Northern Colonies began with the arrival of the Pilgrims, or Puritan separatists, to Plymouth. The Massachusetts Bay Colony, led by John Winthrop, was formed shortly after and became known as the "Bible Commonwealth" for its large religious influence. However, religious tensions began to arise with dissidents like Anne Hutchinson and Roger Williams. The Rhode Island Colony was formed as a haven for these dissenters and exiles, and it became known as being strongly liberal and individualistic. The third New England colony, Connecticut, was led by Thomas Hooker and was the first to establish a "modern constitution" through the Fundamental Orders. The last northern colony, New Hampshire was created in 1679. Conflicts with the
For this project, my group researched the Southern colonies. These colonies were divided into two regions, the Chesapeake colonies, which included Virginia and Maryland, and the Southern colonies, which included the Carolinas and later Georgia. These Southern colonies emerged around the early 1600 's when the Europeans came to the New World and later had an abundance of cash crops which allowed their economy to thrive. The Europeans, specifically the British, arrived in the New World in the 1600 's. They made relations with the natives who helped them to survive.
With all of the wood they had, they were able to build lots of ships and make it an industry. Trade was also a major part of their lifestyle because it was very beneficial to them. The colonists also took part in the triangular trade routes and three stops on it were the West Indies, New England and West Africa. In addition due to the fact that the farm land wasn't the greatest, the colonists practiced a style called subsistence farming. Families produced just enough crops to help them survive.
The colonial societies between the New England and the Chesapeake that developed prior to 1700 were very different but also had some similarities, in terms of there economic systems, social and political set ups, amd religious beliefs.
The 13 Colonies are broken down into 3 parts, Middle, Southern, and New England Colonies. There were many similarities and differences between all of the 13 Colonies. Many of them ranging from their climate and geography to the role women and African Americans played.
The middle colonies had a wide range of terrains from coastal beaches to soaring mountains that lied inland. The wide range allowed the middle colonies to have a unique and diverse economy. For instance its costal shore was optimal for harbors and docks. Also due to its location between the southern and New England colonies it made it a prime spot for reaching all 13 colonies. Its rich soil allowed farmers to plant a variety of crops.
Life in the colonies would be hard but, some people had it easy. There was rich and poor and people in the middle. There were also many things to do and be. Some aspects in life are down below and there are many more like African Americans, leisure, and cities. So there are many aspects of life in the colonies and some people had it easy and some didn’t.
The Middle colonies were proprietary colonies with the exception of New York, which was a provincial colony. Religion in the Middle colonies was very diverse and the colonies were known for religious tolerance. The geography of the region provided for excellent farming, growth of livestock, and the trade of mainly raw materials for manufactured goods. As a result the economy was not centered primarily on shipping or farming but rather a mix of the two. The middle colonies were much more diverse than the New England ones with only 40% being English.
We Americans now depend on most electronics to go about our lives. We use electronics to communicate, find information, socialize, and now to do homework. Back in the day before the United States were born people like Ben Franklin and others were creating these wonderful inventions to help easy the life of colonial people. The Middle Colonies needed a plow to fasten the process of farming crops. The virus smallpox started an epidemic and a vaccine would help lower the risk of people getting the disease. School in the Middle Colonies were they taught kids how to read, write, and math.
