The only change was a small degree with 1.39% blacks in Monroe County. 2000 The population doubles in these two decades to 138,687 with 227.9 people per square mile. Now I am really curious about the racial demographics with 88.21% white citizens and 6.02% black. My current research shows a gap with unclarity about the remaining race of the other six percent of people. The growing population is able to navigate the public transpiration affectionately known as “The Pocono Pony” which is the Metro Transit bus
Douglasville is the county seat of Douglas County, Georgia. As it grew, Douglasville’s founders worked hard to create a town that coincided with the New South ideals that would turn villages into thriving railroad towns. Thus, buildings like a hotel, bank, commercial district, and cotton mill were included early in the town’s development.

In 2000, Douglasville was designated as a Main Street City.

In American Colonies, Alan Taylor argues that “the sugar boom revolutionized the economy, landscape, demography and social structure of Barbados.” (p.210). Sugar became very important for everyone who grew it, especially in Barbados. By 1660, Barbados made the most sugar consumed by England. This made “more trade and capital than all other English colonies combined.” (p.210). They produced about 25,000 tons of sugar.

There are two main reasons for population growth within the English American Colonies. The first was immigration, which accounted for about one quarter of the growth. Land was cheap, and the economy was booming. Colonists were bringing more slaves from Africa to the colonies. This also shifted the racial and ethnic makeup of the colonies.

The Haitian revolution cannot be fully explained without examination of the society that existed before the revolution. Colonial St. Domingue was reputed to be the most productive and valuable colony in the world by the late eighteenth century. St. Domingue grew indigo, coffee, cotton and sugar. However, French control over St. Domingue was not finalized until the Treaty of Ryswick in 1697 and thus, the economic development of St. Domingue was delayed. Once development had begun, however, it proceeded at an extremely rapid pace and the colony experienced its golden age from 1763 – 1789.
100 years after Columbus first arrived in the Americas, the first of 13 colonies, Virginia, was settled. Little did they know that 400 years later, these colonies would evolve and become one of the most powerful nations on Earth. With the colonists populating both southern and northern area, many aspects of the colonies changed. Not only did the colonies change because of the climate and topography (which was inevitable) but also because of the people who lived there. New England was primarily composed of people searching for religious freedom, the Southern Colonies had wealthy people looking for land to grow their plantations, and the middle colonies, the most ethnically diverse, consisting of people searching for a new and wealthier life.

During the 1950´s the economy was booming, and the fruits of this prosperity- new cars, suburban houses, and other consumer goods- were available to more people than ever before (“The 1950’s”). About 4 million babies were born each year during the 1950´s (“The 1950’s”). That’s nearly 36 million babies by 1959.As world war II ended, the G.I Bill subsidized low-cost mortgages for returning soldiers, which meant that it was often cheaper to buy a suburban house than it was to rent an apartment(“The 1950’s”).This provided more homes just outside city limits.During this time, African Americans had been fighting against racial segregation and the struggle against racism and segregation entered the mainstream of American life (“The 1950’s”). In the early 1950’s the lines between R&B, blues, and gospel became blurred (Handyside 8). R&B was revolutionized by adding a gospel sound into it.
