After reviewing the reading, it’s very clear that the southern colonies would be the best place to settle. I would become a farmer because of the business of it. To be more exact I would live in Virginia even though Carolina happen to be more smart when it came to basically everything else than any other colonie. Most importantly why I would chose to be here is because they had access to the cash crops of the time, Tobacco. It allowed the lowest of society to become something and to become very wealthy.
Although the separation from England was a united movement, not all colonies settled for the same reasons. Therefore, as a result of this difference, each colony had its own motives to base its social foundation on. In the “Charter of Privileges Granted by William Penn, esq. to the Inhabitants of Pennsylvania and Territories, October 28, 1701”, it is exemplified how the guidelines set up after colonization was used to attract a certain group of people wanted by the Proprietary and Governor. The charter relinquished to the colony of Pennsylvania, was an articulation of the newly endowed rights given to the people, as well as, an act of appeal.

Have you ever wondered what was on this campus before it became a university? Would you have looked up any information if you didn’t have to write an essay on it? In “Unbroken Ground”, by Savannah State University the article gave us an illustration of what Savannah State was like before it became a University. The land was once a place for slaves, immigrants, trade, and eventually to gain an education. Savannah was founded as a “social and religious utopia, mainly to attract as many adventurous people as possible to inhabit the area.”
What would you do if you lived during Georgia colonization? Do you think the Georgian colonization period was a success or failure? Some people may think that the Georgian colonization was a failure because the trustees messed up some things and they didn't do their job of keeping the Jews out of their colony according to the Charter of 1732. I think it was a success because of its defense, charity, and economics.
Callum Rock Hist 1301 1PM Zachary Montz 9/29/2017 Mid term paper In the beginnings of the New England and Chesapeake colonies, both societies needed to establish systems of law and social control. There were laws set pertaining to both freemen, and slaves in the south. These were intended to keep the interests of the british settlements as a whole, in mind.
He argues that the Free Soil Party was not committed to racial equality and actually held prejudiced views towards African Americans. Foner cites evidence of Free Soil Party leaders making derogatory statements about African Americans and opposing efforts to grant them equal rights.

Plantation owners loved having indentured servants because it really helped them save every bit of money they could. Indentured servants did suffer a lot especially with their working schedules but, with the laws that were later passed in Virginia throughout the years and any few freedoms black had were taken away making them feel hopeless at times because of the racial diversity in the America’s at the time. Servants were being optimistic at the time, they were hoping the laws being passed would not affect their rewards for all the hard work they had endeavored throughout the four to seven year long contracts. There was many uncertainty especially with how society would treat them because of their skin color. With all these new laws being passed, most plantation owners feared for their land, indentured servants were not needed as much anymore, plantation owners turned to slavery were they had more power of the individuals and were guaranteed no profit
During the American Revolution, many states wanted to seek independence from Britain. However, Pennsylvania and the Deep South prefered to remain under British rule. Provided that Pennsylvania was a Quaker-controlled government, independence was not favored. The Deep South was largely occupied by Loyalists, colonists who remained supportive of Britain, therefore, they did not want to split from Britain. Pennsylvania and the Deep South were not necessarily interested in seeking independence.
After pushing for an end to slavery these groups wanted to continue in the progress made from the civil war. Radical Republicans wanted the Freedmen to have full rights. Radical Republicans in congress wanted a harsh plan for Reconstruction. Unionists wanted Black Freedmen to have the right to vote so they could have their vote for elections. Black Freedmen were also on the left because they wanted more rights now that they have
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.
In the southern colonies the main people that inhabited the area were Catholics and protestants. The southern colonies ended up becoming excessively dependent on a plantation company that required slavery. Slavery was not a great solution to the labor problem but because a large portion or people owned a lot slaves and since that ownership was viewed as their wealth they were loathed to give up those slaves without financial compensation. Slavery was allowed in New England but very few people owned slaves. The Northern Colonies decided to take the weakling way out.
I’m writing to you to inform you that your colony of Georgia is going great, now. The Good ship Anne was perfect and wonderful for the journey. It took exactly 57 days to get to place called Charleston, South Carolina on January 13th, 1733. Even when we didn’t have the supply to keep going such a food and clean water, we worked out our problems and got through them, out of the 114 passengers only 2 infants didn’t make it. When we got to Charleston we went to man named John Musgrove to ask permission to use Mary Musgrove as a translator.
