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
The glaciers from the north made it so that they have fertile soil and the growing seasons were much longer with lots of sunlight and rain. They traveled by riding along the wide rivers like the Delaware river and the Hudson river. The middle colonies were an important distribution center in the English mercantile system. The land they live on has a lot of diversity between race, the diversity in races are Catholic, English, and Enslaved Africans all share the land. They made a living by working on the farms and selling those crops to the town. Farming was a good source of money because the fertile soil made it easy to grow crops like grain, trees, and potatoes.
The New England colonies were first founded in the last 16th to 17th century as a sanctuary for differing religious groups. New England was made up of the Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. New Hampshire, however, was formed for economic reasons instead of religious ones. The Chesapeake region, which is made up of the colonies of Maryland and Virginia, was founded by the British colonies for the purpose of farming. However, by the 1700’s, despite both being settled by Englishmen, New England and the Chesapeake region had developed differently. This difference was contributed to religious tolerance, economics, and population.
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. The Middle Colony had fertile soil and somewhat hotter weather than New England’s. The trade in the Middle colonies is that Farmers sent goods of wheat and livestock to New
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
The colonies of Massachusetts and Virginia were a start of the new world for England. These were founded by similar people but, with their strikingly differences, grew into separate political, economic and social structures. Both settlements arose from over-crowdedness in England: people wanted a better life. Virginia was settled by men who were single and looking for opportunities and wealth. They were part of the Anglican religion. Those in Massachusetts were puritans and looking for a place where they would be free from religious persecution. Wealthy people who could afford the boat journey and did not have to become indentured slaves went for a more settled life.
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 New England and Chesapeake colonies were established during the early 1700s. Despite the population originating from England, the regions had distinct societies. This was due to the fact that many settlers voyaged to the New World in search of riches, to seek new lives, or for religious freedom. They differed socially, politically, economically, and geographically.
The differences in the economy in the three different regions of the thirteen colonies were determined by both the people who went there and the environment. The environment limited how the economy was based because an agricultural economy needs good ground for growing, so without good soil, the economy would have to be based on industry. In the New England colonies (Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island), the economy was dependent on their industries, not their agriculture. The Middle Colonies (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) were equally dependent on industry as they were on agriculture. The Southern Colonies (Maryland, N. Carolina, S. Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia) depended on selling their
The southern colony and New England Colony had many differences. The New England colony was based more in manufacturing while the southern colony was about agriculture as far as their economy. One big difference is that New England colony didn’t believe in slavery like the southern colonies believed. Slaves and indentured servants were the backbone of the Southern economy. They did much of the labor work for the southern colonies cash crops. New England colonies had a hot/humid climate so they weren’t able to do any farming like the southern colonies. The New England colonies did not have slaves, this is a big difference between the two and many slaves form the southern colonies would try to escape to the New England colonies since slaving wasn’t allowed there. But the New
People across the world immigrated to America in search of a new life free from the oppression of the Old World and in pursuit of the promise of a bountiful future in America. These brave people came from vastly different races, cultures, and economic backgrounds which led to the unique development of the southern colonies social structure. The social structure of the south was comprised of three parts: the wealthy Great Planters, the diligent Yeoman farmers, and the daring Frontier Families.
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.
In the beginning Native Americans and colonists had peace when the settlers came to their land. They helped each
The Colonial Era began when Columbus colonized the New World, and the Europeans made maps of the colonies, and started to colonize them. The thirteen colonies were discovered in the span of 1607 to 1733. This caused some
The Colonist during the 1600’s, up until the 1800’s, did not agree with the British government controlling them. Great Britain had an impact on the colonies and their development by setting multiple laws, applying taxes, and forcing religion on the Colonists.
