The 13 Colonies

The first 13 colonies were divided into three different geographic regions. They were all unique in their own ways. The all had religions, economies, and different reasons as to why they were formed.

Why were the colonies first started?

The reasoning behind creating the 13 colonies was that the English wanted to expand their colonies and create trade routes throughout the world. Also, this created wealth for the royal peoples in England.
