  • Northern And Middle Colonies

    When the northern and middle colonies were founded, England had a strong hold over the colonies. They controlled development and the government, among other things. But as the colonies developed, they began to have an ever-growing sense of independence that was a threat to its English rulers.

    It seems important to understand the similarities of the colonial regions in order to comprehend the implications they had. By comparing the Middle Colonies and New England, and by contrasting the future North to the South, it becomes relatively easy to draw patterns. In 1760, the population in New England counts 16, 000 Africans, 29, 000 for the Middle Colonies whereas the South populates 205, 000 Africans. Slavery is then mainly concentrated in the South, involving more agrarian activities and...

When England engaged in the French and Indian War (1754-1763), the colonies and their mother country joined together to fight the French. The colonies used popular images to entice people to join th...

    British imperial regulations with the American colonies were closely tied in with the system of mercantilism. Mercantilism controls the relations between the leading power and the colonies under its empire. A nation would want to export more than it imports gaining more money to obtain economic stability. The colonies exist for the profit of the mother country. Trade was a vital part of the economy of both England and the British colonies. The colonies would provide a majority of raw materials t...

    Colonial America There are many myths about early America and the original thirteen colonies. Some people may think that all the colonies were the same. This is not true by any means. People of different cultures populated certain areas, and therefore practiced different religions, knew how to grow different crops, etc. The climate was far different between the New England colonies and the Chesapeake colonies. This also had an impact on the types of crops they grew. There are multitudes of diff...

    During the middle-years of the development of the colonies, Britain let go of their colonial possessions, and let the colonies be a freestanding nation for a period of time in order for Britain to pursue political and military ventures elsewhere. This policy of salutary neglect gave the colonists a taste of freedom from the crown, and it gave the colonies a warming-up period to start their own legislature, commercial transactions, and religious affiliations. The colonies from early on have creat...
