FC: The Colonies By: Sydney Buck
1: Dedicated to: Lauren Cain
2: Middle Colonies: The colony of New Netherlands became the colony of New York, because England took it over. New Jersey became separate from New York,because the king felt it was too big to govern so he gave some land to his brother.
3: Pennsylvania was founded because the king gave land to William Penn so that the Quakers could live there in peace. The life in the middle colonies had a lot of farming, but there were other trades also.
4: Southern Colonies: Maryland was found so that Catholics could have religious freedom. | The Carolinas were founded because of some wealthy noble men founding the land. Georgie was founded so that deptors could have a fresh start. The two ways of life in the Southern colonies were tidewater plantations, and the backcountry.
5: Slave trade was very big in the 1700's. The colonists would ship them all over the place. This a picture of the Slave Market, which is where they sold their slaves.Some colonists lived on plantations, with the slaves working right outside of their home.
6: New England Colonies: The Puritans left England because they wanted to reform or purify the Church of England. A problem that the Massachusetts colony had that made people leave, was the government had too much power.
7: The Native Americans and the Puritans fought because the Puritans kept taking their land. The towns were important because the Puritans believed that people should worship and tend local matters as a community.
