Explain British’s purpose for establishing the Georgia colony and the Pennsylvania colonies
The British purposely established the Georgia and Pennsylvania colonies because James Olgethorpe wanted to seek out new land so he could make a lot of money.
Oglethrope tried an experiment but failed because he did not believe in slavery or the distribution of alcohol which had made south Carolina very mad. The British also kept Georgia so they could look after the plantations like the Spanish.
Describe William Penn’s vision for Pennsylvania?
When William Penn left England on his first voyage to Pennsylvania, his head was full of visions and hopes for this new Land of Promise. He wanted to see if he could establish a new society based on freedom and he wanted to see whether it was true, as he thought, that men and women were better and happier. Believing good government to be part of God's plan for mankind, he called his venture a Holy Experiment. He was in Pennsylvania only three and a half years but from 1681, when he received the King's charter at the age of thirty-seven, to 1718, when he died. The growth and well-being of his colony was based on a tradition of religious toleration and freedom under law, fundamental principles of American civil life.
What was the name of New York City prior to English control?
The Dutch were the first Europeans to settle in what is now New York City. They called it New Amsterdam back when it was first established in 1626 by Peter Minuit.
How did the English divide up New York?
William Penn made his own colony called Pennsylvania. He wanted it to be a peaceful place were all religions got along no matter there religious differences.
Why did the English focus their early colonization efforts on the North and South Carolina’s?
The colonists focused most of their attention towards the Carolina's because of trading with the natives and agriculture, but failed because farming wasn't easy as they thought it would be. They also enslaved Africans to teach them ways of agriculture The Carolina's also was port to the very famous port of Charles Town which was a major trade route for every one.
