The Southern Colonies
Work Is Easy, Money Is High!
Map Of Southern Colonies
The Southern Colonies are right on the coast. The weather is just nice, and their are plenty of jobs to keep you busy!
Most of the settlers here are from England. They left mostly because they believed there was money, gold and many more valuables in the area.
Work, Climate, Land Forms, Culture, Trade And Settlement
The southern colonies believe strongly in slaves. They hire slaves to do the work in the fields for them. The slaves are from Africa, and were imprisoned for slaves until they reached america, where they were sold and forced to work. Another belief was Catholics. The southerns let Catholics in to their colonies.
As you might have thought, many conflicts occurred. That lead to food shortages, and distribution of power. Also, to top that off, there were unsafe conditions there, like the water. Salt water is not good for the human body.
Many other events happen there too. Some at least were happy. There was a weeding between Pokahauntaus and Rolfe, two very big leaders. That was a big event. There was also a house of Burgess made, which helped vote Representatives for New England.
