13 Colonies - MS.OSORNIO'S CLASS

13 COLONIES 3 Regions: New England Middle Colonies Southern Colonies WERE THEY ALL THE SAME? The 13 colonies were divided into 3 separate regions, the New England Colonies, the Middle Colonies, and the Southern Colonies. The colonies were grouped by such factors as the climate, resources, and people.

The Appalachian Mountains acted as a natural boundary between the English Colonies and the French controlled territory to the west. The Atlantic Ocean served as the eastern boundary to the 13 colonies. Ap pal ach ian

Mo unt ain s GEOGRAPHY OF THE COLONIES CHARTER COLONY /PROPRIETARY COLONY / ROYAL COLONY A charter is a written contract issued by a government giving the holder the right to establish a colony. (Virginia Company had a

charter) A Proprietary Colony was a charter for a land grant given to an individual. (William Penn) A Royal Colony was established by a charter, land grant from the king. (James Oglethorpe) Charter given to William Penn THE NEW ENGLAND COLONIES

Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island & Connecticut NEW ENGLAND COLONIES Climate - bitterly cold winters, mild summers, short growing season Resources rocky soil, forested lands, abundant fish Settlements small towns, mainly on the coast, created

harbors and ports for trade Economy shipbuilding, farming, fishing, & part of Triangular Trade Major Cities - Boston SUBSISTENCE FARMING Most farmers in the New England colonies practiced subsistence farming, meaning they produced just enough food for themselves and sometimes a little extra to trade in town. Why do you think farmers in the North

did not grow cash crops such as tobacco or indigo? NEW ENGLAND GOVERNMENT SelfGoverning New Hampshire Charters Town Meetings The Mayflower Compact

The Fundamental Connecticut Orders of Massachusetts Rhode Island MASSACHUSETTS Plymouth Colony - Founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims (1st Thanksgiving!!). A religious group that sought to separate themselves from the Church of England became know as Pilgrims. They were persecuted, picked

on, because of their beliefs. Plymouth was the original name of the settlement. John Carver was the leader of the Pilgrims and author Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor by William Halsall of the Mayflower Compact. (1882) Plymouth Plantation, with Cape Cod Bay visible in the distance. MAYFLOWER COMPACT

In 1620, 41 men from the Mayflower ship signed a compact promising to write and obey "just and equal laws ... for the general good of the colony." The compact brought an element of democracy to America and was an example of the practice of selfgovernment in the colonies MASSACHUSETTS

Puritans then came and settled Boston (Mass. Bay Colony) as a Commonwealth. John Winthrop (a City upon a Hill) was the governor of this settlement. The Puritans got their name from their belief that they needed to purify the English Church of its rituals. They were very strict and demanded compliance (agreement) with their rules. RHODE ISLAND

In 1636, Rhode Island became a colony after Roger Williams, a clergyman, obtained a charter from England to form the colony. He taught separation of Church and State, meaning that a government should not tell people what religion they should have. This got him in trouble with the Puritans Rhode Island also had

freedom of religion. Roger Williams minister, author RHODE ISLAND Anne Hutchinson She taught that people should know the bible for themselves and be in-charge

of their own faith. She believed that church was not necessary for salvation and a personal relationship with God was all that was necessary. The Puritans accused her of heresy (teaching against the church), brought her to trial, convicted her and banished her. RHODE ISLAND: SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE / EQUALITY Williams and Hutchinson laid the

foundations for true religious freedom and the principle of separation of church and state. Equality of people and freedom of religion was extended to all. All Christians and Jews were safe. Rhode Island passed a law to make slavery illegal in 1652. This was the first law against slavery in North America. 14 CONNECTICUT

Also founded in 1636 by a clergyman Thomas Hooker. He led a group of people from Rhode Island to start their own colony and they had freedom of religion. Fundamental Orders of Connecticut First A map of the Connecticut, New Haven, and Saybrook colonies.

FUNDAMENTAL ORDERS OF CONNECTICUT In 1639, men from 3 townships created laws, rules, and orders for how the colony would be ruled Powers not given to colony, given to towns Considered the first written constitution in North America.

NEW HAMPSHIRE Sold to the king of England in 1679. Royal colony: king chooses governor and no elected government. 1. What were the key natural resources of New England? 2. How did the geographic factors of the New England influence the economy of the region? 18

SALEM WITCH TRIALS Puritan New England had changed from being church centered to an atmosphere of fear and suspicion. Several Salem girls were told frightening stories about witches by a slave named Tituba. Pretending to be bewitched,

the girls falsely accused others of witchcraft, and the witch-hunts began in 1692! The Puritans viewed the witch-hunts as a sign from God to return to a strict Puritan lifestyle. Ultimately, more than 100 were arrested and tried with EVALUATE 1. What contributions to the American Character and the spirit of America did Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson make? 2. What was the Mayflower Compact and how did that

document contribute to the formation of American democracy and government? 20 THE MIDDLE COLONIES New York, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania MIDDLE COLONIES

Climate warmer summers=longer growing season Resources land for growing cash crops Settlements - on coast or large rivers, large cities on harbors (New York and Philadelphia) Economy cash crops- fruit, vegetables, and grain, produce goods to trade Major Cities New York City, Philadelphia MIDDLE COLONIES GOVERNMENT New York

James, Duke of York Started as New Netherland, a Dutch colony in 1609 James Duke of York was given it from Charles II. The English took over in 1664 and renamed it New York. (Breadbasket Colony)

THE ZENGER TRIAL - 1733 John Peter Zenger publisher of the New-York Weekly Criticized the Governor of New York for fixing an election Zenger was put in jail

At the trial Andrew Hamilton claimed that people had the right to speak (write) the truth Zenger was set free by the jury What do you think this set a precedence for? PENNSYLVANIA

In 1681, William Penn was granted a charter for land between Maryland and New York. King Charles was in debt to Penns father. Penn was a Quaker and he gave the people two rights: 1. Freedom of Religion 2. Right to elect WILLIAM PENN (1644-1718)

3. Why were the Middle colonies centers of farming and trade? 31 THE SOUTHERN COLONIES Virginia, Maryland, N. Carolina, S. Carolina, & Georgia SOUTHERN COLONIES Climate long growing season, warm

weather and plentiful rainfall Resources rich soil, flat land for large crops Settlements - mainly on large plantations Economy tobacco, rice, indigo, and cotton crops SOUTHERN COLONIES GOVERNMENT Joint-Stock and Proprietary Charters. The House of Burgesses Colonies run for the profit of

the Joint-Stock Company or Proprietors. Maryland Virginia North Carolina South Carolina Georgia PLANTATION ECONOMY Plantations were selfsufficient for the most part. Everything they needed they produced

on the plantation. Due to this fact, the large cities that were found in the North were not as easy to find in the South. PLANTATION ECONOMY CONTD. The ability to grow crops year-round made the Southern Colonies an ideal place to grow crops such as rice and tobacco on the large plantation estates. These crops required a great amount of labor during harvest and many people were needed. The Southern Colonies turned to the use of slaves from Africa. The Southern Colonies were not the

only colonies to use slaves, but used them on a much grander scale than anyone else among the 13 colonies. ENSLAVED AFRICANS BROUGHT AGRICULTURAL KNOWLEDGE WITH THEM Rice was introduced into the Southern Colonies by Africans who were experienced growing this crop in Africa. Many crops that the Africans grew were similar to the crops that could be easily grown in the South.

37 MARYLAND Founded in 1634 by George Calvert who started a charter but didnt live to see it come true. He believed all people should have religious freedom. King Charles I was king and didnt agree with the

religious freedom. In 1649, the Toleration Act was passed that guaranteed equality of rights for everyone for religion. Southern Colony George Calvert, Lord Baltimore VIRGINIA Founded in 1607 (Jamestown)

Captain John Smith is given credit for starting this colony. Many people at this time wanted to leave their homeland in order to have more freedoms and to not be under the strict rule of the kings of England. Southern Colony VIRGINIA At Jamestown Settlement, replicas of Christopher Newport's 3 ships are docked in the harbor. A Pocahontas statue was erected in Jamestown, Virgin

ia in 1922 Map of Virginia published by John Smith (1612) VIRGINIA HOUSE OF BURGESSES, 1619 The word burgess was used in England to refer to a person that was elected as a representative from a town. The English had experience of self-government. They elected representatives to Parliament.

A big change happened in Virginia in 1619. The villages elected representatives that would meet to make local laws and decisions. This legislative (law-making group) was called The Virginia House of Burgesses. House of Burgesses1st Legislature, House of Congress, in the English Colonies! 41 BACONS REBELLION - 1676

By the 1670s, of the free white men were former indentured servants. These colonists did not own land and lived mostly on Virginias western frontier, where they battled the Native Americans for land. Nathanial Bacon and others opposed the Governor about high taxes and his favoritism toward wealthy plantation owners.

Bacon demanded a war against the Natives to seize their land for tobacco plantations, but the Governor refused, sparking Bacons rebellion. Bacon marched into Jamestown, took control of the House of Burgesses and burned Jamestown to the ground. Bacon unfortunately became ill and died shortly thereafter leading to the end of the rebellion. The House of Burgesses passed laws after this rebellion to prevent a royal governor from assuming such power again. NORTH CAROLINA

Founded in 1663 by English nobles. Charter granted by Charles II. Charleston: main city was named after Charles II. Became very important port city. Bad politics forced a split of the colony into North and South. Southern Colony King Charles II

SOUTH CAROLINAIn 1729 South Carolina received its name after a political dispute and became a colony. Had large plantations for growing crops and raising livestock. Southern Colony SOUTH CAROLINA

Eliza Lucas Pickney is credited with developing indigo as a cash crop first on her familys plantation in South Carolina and then throughout the GEORGIA

It became a colony in 1733. James Oglethorpe was granted a charter to start Georgia for the poor and unfortunate who leave prison. It was known as a buffer zone between the Spanish and the English colonies. Southern Colony 47 13 COLONIES Which region had a colony created for a different

reason than the others? INTERPRET 1. Which of the colonial regions would be the most likely to be dependent upon trade with England? Why? Cite your evidence. 2. Which of the colonial regions, New England, Middle, or Southern, would most likely have an economy that was independent from England? Why? Cite your evidence. 49 TRIANGULAR TRADE

1. 2. 3. 4. This was the name given to a trading route with 3 stops. For example, a ship might leave New England with a cargo of rum and iron. In Africa, the captain would trade his cargo for slaves. Slaves then endured the horrible Middle Passage to the West Indies, where they were exchanged for sugar and molasses. Traders then took the sugar and molasses back to New England. There colonists used the molasses to

make rum, and the pattern started over. TRIANGULAR TRADE ROUTE MIDDLE PASSAGE NAVIGATION ACTS New England made enormous profits from trade and England wanted to make sure that it received part of those profits. As a result the Navigation Acts were passed in 1651, and had 4 major parts to make sure England made money from its colonies trade. (Mercantilism) 1.

2. 3. 4. All shipping done in English ships or ships made in English colonies. Products such as tobacco, wood, and sugar could be sold only to England or its colonies. European imports to the colonies had to pass through English ports. English officials were to tax and colonial goods not shipped to England. SMUGGLING & PIRATES

As one might expect, England had trouble controlling colonial shipping from thousands of miles away. Merchants ignored the acts whenever possible. Smuggling, importing or exporting goods illegally, was very common. Pirates were popular

The most famous pirate of the time was Blackbeard! GREAT AWAKENING ENLIGHTENMENT
