The Chesapeake people were looking for fortune, and they were looking for it independently for the most part. A map of New England, differed drastically from a map of Chesapeake. Unlike New England, Chesapeake was very spread out with people trying to protect their land (Doc E). It was almost impossible to have a set government with people being so scattered. The families that came to New England were able to settle and govern like “a city upon a hill”, as an example to John Winthrop's ideas in 1630 (Doc C), even though they were not expected to be capable of creating a governing system.
The New World was home to Native Americans before it was ever home to Europeans. Europeans, mostly the English were who began to shape it to their needs and personal identities. New England, for example was considered to be tight knit and as a result of having families developed schools, and churches to fit their lifestyle. New England and Chesapeake were distinct societies during the colonization era of North America with different settlement patterns, motivations, and economies. Patterns of settlement for New England and Chesapeake differed greatly.
As a result of this, the people of Nova Scotia could not have birthed any sort of revolutionary ideology. The lack of communication between various settlements, and he strong presence of British military and government stunted the growth of the idea of joining the
In any new nation there must be a sense of government and law. In this new nation, America, government and law came from one place, the church. There was nothing separating church from state until a strange occurrence started happening and this was called “The Great Awakening”. It was not started by anybody with strong political ties or money. This was coming from the average people of this new land of America and wanted to make a change and that is what they did.
To what extent did the Age of Exploration 15th to 16th lead to conflict and competition between Port and Spain? Introduction The Age of Exploration was during the Renaissances period in Europe, it was a time that dealt with the whole of Europe coming out of the dark ages which was during 14th century to the 16th century when the Renaissance ended, of course this was due to the industrial revolution but that is not important… The age of Exploration was a time when many countries in Europe sought a means of power by traveling to the new worlds in aid of helping their own countries by retrieving raw materials, slave labour, rare foods and spices, but also land that they could claim for their own countries. The most famous out of these countries during the time where England and Spain both they ruled large amounts of land during the late Renaissance period, but our main focus is during the early Renaissance period this was the time when Portugal and Spain where both trying to head East to claim valuable raw materials and spice, from India and many other countries along the way.

The Revolutionary War gave reason for America’s unification, but the diversity of America made it impossible for one unified culture to emerge. By 1700, the New England and Chesapeake colonies had evolved into two distinct societies contrary to their predominantly English populations, but these differences did not happen quickly. Rather, they were the result of the colonists’ intentions during colonization, their distinct environments, and their different social and political inequalities. The New England and Chesapeake colonies began to develop into two distinct societies from their very beginnings due to the intentions of their respective colonists during colonization.
Two different colonies that started out on the land of America around the same time period, Plymouth, and Jamestown; they sailed to America for the same reason, freedom. Known as the Puritans, Plymouth came to America for the freedom of religion, and they did not want to associate themselves with the Church of England. Similar to the Puritans, the Jamestown colonists arrived in the New World in search for gold, silver and precious stones. During the arrival these colonists expected to receive many goods from the America in exchange of a small amount of labor. Although the colonies have a similar desire coming to America, each colony' perspective toward the New World differed.
The First Nations, the Virginians, and the New England Puritans all had a different respect or attitude towards the physical environment in North America. While the First Nations had inhabited the land for already some time, it was a new land for the European colonist. There are many different factors that contributed the three groups’ differing attitudes towards the environment, but it comes down to their purposes or goals in the “New World.” In the long run, these differing attitudes had multiple consequences.
Settling in the New World provided both the American settlers and the British government with many opportunities. For the colonists, North America provided an opportunity to improve their lives and escape religious persecution. For the British, settlers in North America provided access to raw materials and new markets in which to sell finished goods. This mercantilist relationship continued for several years, until the colonists began to question Parliament’s right to treat them differently than other British citizens. Taxes were imposed on the colonists as a means of helping to pay the debt Britain had incurred fighting the French.
No one reason can be given for any event in history—in colonial times, North America was settled for a multitude of reasons. Although escape from religious persecution or the desire to expand a religion was one reason, economic concerns and the want for wealth comprised the majority of Britain 's intent to settle colonies in North America. Early European exploration of Asia and Africa was driven by trade and economics; because religion was a large part of daily life back then and into the years of American settlement by Europeans, explorers would cite it as their inspiration. The earliest settlements were motivated by an economic depression in England. Later, the first colonies of New England were settled by wealthy Puritans looking to create
Alan Forey wrote and intriguing journal article that questions the authentication of a letter supposedly written by St. Bernard in which he mentions Pedro Henriques the purported brother of King Alfonso. Because of mentioning of Pedro, Forey establishes the theory, that St. Bernard did not author the letter. Forey questions if St. Bernard provided any prior knowledge to King Afonso of Portugal regarding the crusaders siege of Lisbon in 1147. Forey states, the letter known simply as letter 308 is cryptic at best and does not provide any specific details of an invasion by crusaders or of the original author’s intent for writing the letter. Stating, letter 308 first appeared in Brito’s Chronica de Cister in 1602, in which Forey claims that articles printed in that particular chronical are often not genuine.
Even though the colonists originated from England, many viewed themselves as Americans not English. To be successful in overcoming the British, Benjamin Franklin knew that the colonists had to unite. In Document A he constructed a political cartoon that
During the American Revolution, the United States lacked money. Congress was given the power to borrow money. Ambassadors or emissaries such as Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams were given the task of petitioning foreign powers for money to keep the war going. John Adams, as emissary to Holland, wrote to Congress frequently about borrowing money and how he was not being acknowledged formally by the Dutch because they were reluctant to accept the United States as a sovereign nation. Although Article 9 detailed the powers of Congress to appoint ambassadors, enter into treaties, and borrow money, there was no guarantee that other nations would pay any attention to the new government set up in the colonies.
