Quakers in England were being persecuted, killed, and imprisoned for their beliefs. The Southern colonies were the final group. These were grown on plantations typically worked by slaves and indentured servants. This was because the southern economy was built and centered on agriculture, particularly cotton cultivation. The Southern colonies mainly concentrated in agricultural practices and cultivated crops like rice, indigo, cotton, tobacco. For New England, the existing farms were small and located in the outskirts of the town. However, Penn energetically marketed the new colony so he could attract a heavy flow of immigrants.
In 1682, the Duke of York granted Penn the colony of Delaware, which was the area between Maryland and the Delaware River. New England colonies were in regions were soil was notas fertile as in the Middle colonies. Being an Oligarchy meant that the wealthy farmers and plantation owners controlled the government since they were the only people that had the ability to cater for their own expenses. These practices appeared treasonous and heretical to most English officials. By summer of 1609, 524 colonists would have arrived in Jamestown.
The New England, Middle and Southern Colonies grew differently over the period 1619-1760. The New England colonies consisted of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. The temperature climates in the regions were also similar. They developed a large shipbuilding industry, and due to the abundance of fish such as cod, their fishing industry grew as well. Therefore, New England thrived instead with fishing, shipbuilding, and trading goods with Europe.
The New England and Southern Colonies didn't have much similarities except just like before, girls weren't allowed to go to college. Each of these had specific developments that were unique to the regions. This meant that the wealthy plantation owners controlled the government because they were the only people who could manage to pay for all their own expenses. With immigrants coming from all over Europe seeking religious refuge and economic profits, the Great Awakening, and the Zenger case, the colonies were becoming more and more democratic with each passing year. Frigid winters retarded the growth of such diseases in New England. The Religion of the Colonies before the Great awakening was somewhat varied but mainly only in the Middle Colonies. The Southern Colonies had a strict three class system: upper class wealthy plantation owners, lower class poor whites and a population of Negroes which were not considered a class at all.
The soils and climates of these three different colony groups weredifferent. When the colonial era ended, Maryland sheltered more Roman Catholics than any other English-speaking colony. Politically, all the colonies had some degree of self-government, but they went about it in different ways. Slavery is common in the Middle and Southern Colonies and they compare in this way. Climate The four Middle Colonies had rich soil that was great for farming.
The Middle Colonies again had a fairly balanced class system though instead of merchants it centered around farming communities. In contrast, Virginia and the New England colonies were essentially corporate ventures, sponsored by joint-stock companies that funded the settlements as investments. The struggle for control of this land would continue for more than a hundred years. Trade with England was plentiful in these colonies as well. Crops like corn and wheat grew in large numbers, and much was shipped to England.
The three colonies all had comparable similarities, as they were all democratic. The Dutch East India Company established a trading empire that was profitable for over three hundred years. Similarities between new england middle and southern colonies. Pennsylvania grew rapidly because it was the best advertised of all the colonies and no restrictions were placed on immigration to the colony. From the foundation of the colonies beginning with the founding of Jamestown until the beginning of the , different regions of the eastern coast had different characteristics. The colony was named after Lord De La Warr, a harsh military governor who came to Virginia in 1610.
The climate in the New England colonies is much harsher also leading to short planting seasons for the Pilgrims. Slavery represented the economic, social and legal form of the enslavement of people, which bordered on complete injustice and extreme inequality. The Middle Colonies had their government and church separated. From then until the American Revolution it had its own assembly but remained under the governor of Pennsylvania. The Virginians created a remote center called the Albemarle district just south of the Virginia border. The farms were small, mainly to provide food for individual families. The Southern Colonies were the most inequitable as they were an Oligarchy.
Establishing representative governments: While on the Mayflower, the Pilgrims drafted a simple constitution called the Mayflower Compact, which established an early form of self-government. I am sure he will show me pieces of his work. Penn was eager to establish a refuge for fellow Quakers in Pennsylvania. Students will learn how the climate and geography of the three colonial regions impacted the economic as well as the social lives of colonists in the three regions of the 13 Colonies. The agricultural crops brought great wealth but at the expense of being dependent on international markets and reliant on the import of manufactured goods.
