, In order to make as much as possible from these cash crops, english men would come over to be indentured servants. Virginia and Maryland both had huge plantations and urban development, unlike colonies one New England. The main difference in Maryland and Virginia colonies is that Maryland planted other crops than tobacco and had other ways of making money including shipbuilding. Tobacco was not as successful in Maryland due to geographical issues . Both colonies had indentured servants.
This is a picture of the hired servants working on a farm in Jamestown because the slaves were not yet introduced. The servants are harvesting tobacco on a farm in the southern colonies, where they depended on large-scale servants and cash crops, such as tobacco, for their economy. The servants will be working for the landlord for some years. They signed a contract that would work on a farm for a few years and then their freedom would be granted in America. These servants came in many sizes and colours.
With the invention of the “cotton gin” and other inventions like it, it caused the demand for slaves to go up and to man these machines. The crops they grew in the South were tobacco, rice, sugar cane, and indigo. These were mostly the "big money" crops sold. Near some of the bays in the South, they gathered fish, oysters, and crabs. They also grew cotton as it was a promising crop, but it was difficult for them to get out the unnecessary parts.
Another blatantly targeted demographic in the witch craze was people of old age. This is visible in document 17, where the number of suspected witches of old age is increasingly higher than suspected witches that were even remotely young. This fact shows that people were discriminated because of their old age, and with their old age, came sickliness and weakness. This information also supports the fact that people that were weak and vulnerable were targeted during the witch craze. This is a recurring theme that is constantly visible whilst looking deeper into the groups and demographics that were convicted throughout the span of the witch craze.
The culture of the Jamestown colony is shaped by disease, war, and racism, however, their economy grew successful enough to support their colony social and economically. George Percy’s A Discourse on the Plantation of Virginia describes the hardships, disease, war, and misery, that they faced at Jamestown. Percy describes the disease the most he said that the diseases would leave the colonists with swelling fevers and overall misery. These challenges made it difficult to start a successful colony but after faced they make the colonists stronger. Richard Frethorne’s letter to his mother and father describes the war, disease, and work conditions on the plantations and colonies in Virginia.
On the other hand, the main point was that slaves planting and picking cotton would heavily boost the economy. There were plenty of other reasons justifying why slavery should be legal, but these were some main points. African-American people during pre-civil war times had a harsh life. Many black people during this time just mainly worked all of their lives non-stop. Thinking back, if slavery still existed now with all of this technology it would be even more wrong than it was before.
Times were much simpler, yet worse, in March 1610 as there were only about sixty of us colonial men left standing and we were lucky to even still be alive due to the high mortality rate. Fast forward forty years later, and now families have been shipping in by the thousands, although some do not last long due to lingering diseases. I have made an assumption that the water we have been drinking may be a cause of all the disease that is continuously being spread amongst the people, but people seem to be more focused on tobacco and the natives. However, priorities were not always based on tobacco, because before John Rolfe blessed the colony with his discoveries there was the issue of maintaining a stable society on this
At the beginning of the 18th century tobacco was the main cash crop for southerners, however by the end of this century tobacco prices were beginning to decline, resulting in more debts for the south. The invention of Cotton Gin will not only help the south recover from the losses of tobacco and switch to another successful cash crop, but also set the south on the path of the industrialized mass production. On a boat to South Carolina Eli Whitney met the widow of Nathaniel Greene a famous general in the American Revolution and was invited to come to her house. While residing there he learned about the problems associated with the production of cotton.
By the 17 century their social structure was based on cultivators and plantation, and population was at its highest peak in 1760 due the slavery trade. The North and south Caroline brought their profit mostly by the slave trade since the southern region demanded high range of
It didn’t help that the slave duty was at a whopping twenty percent. This only brought the farmers into more debt with which their tobacco could not render enough profit to get them out of. According to William Allason, the poor farmers were dedicated to lowering the duty on slaves as low as possible as opposed to shutting down the slave trade altogether, for the farmers needed hands to cultivate their product. (Holton, 71) Britain sided with the gentry’s
The colony of Virginia wasn’t always efficient in the growth and trade of tobacco. To understand the role tobacco played in the development of the economy and society of the once destitute colony, we first must look back at how Virginia was established. Although not considered to be a part of the founding of Virginia, before 1607 there were two attempts made by English settlers to establish a colony in the Chesapeake region of North America. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth first of her name, a charter was granted to English settlers that would allow for colonies to be established
Fields Jameka Polatty 4B Puritan Values In New England In the sixteen hundreds, the New England colonies had rapidly advanced. The colonies development was mainly influenced by emigrating Puritans that had come to the colonies in search for religious freedom. Not only did the Puritans find a home, they got the opportunity to alter other colonies in their perspective.
Most of the colonies in America were settled by the English, which makes them similar in many designs. However, there are a few aspects that differentiate between colonies, such as in the Chesapeake and New England regions. Reasons for settlement, religions, and geography all played an important role in the development of colonies in these regions. These conditions were natural and mostly subject to circumstances and conditions that were unchangeable. Nonetheless, no matter the modest causes, the effects were very substantial in helping to develop the uniqueness of each region.
