New Colonies Emerge

The Big Apple

Before New York was called New York it was called New Amsterdam. Also, what is known today as Wall street back then was just that, a wall. It marked the northernmost edge in Manhattan. Lower Manhattan today is very busy while back in the 1600's it was a small urban village that was first Dutch then English. Buildings doubled as homes and work places.

Back in 1663 when King Charles was charge he made it to where slaves were now allowed slaves to be carried out of Africa to the British. In 1664 James, the Duke of New York sent 400 troops and many warships to conquer New Amsterdam. Then in 1665 James then gave away New Jersey to a couple of his cronies. After all of these colonies had been given away New Netherlands then became New York. The colony was a mix of Dutch and English. The first governors tried to please both parties. As time went on James allowed New York to have an elective assembly. Later, the King wouldn't allow the charter causing us New Yorkers to fight each other causing the population growth to slow down.

The state of independence

Back in the late 1600's Pennsylvania had signs of a more "free" colony. It was much more of the old world than the new world. It wasn't until 1700 that they passed a law that recognized slavery.

When I was growing up in Pennsylvania the atmosphere was much different than it was in the 1700's. In the late 1600's it was more free so to speak. There were many Quakers here. William Penn was one of them. Quakers did not believe in paying taxes and also they refused to serve in the military. When Penn was out of imprisonment he went to Philadelphia. Their colony had over 4,000 people already. Penn knew how he wanted his colony to turn out. Soon Pennsylvania had many different people who spoke many different languages. What he wasn't expecting was his people wanted things more like the new world. The government soon recognized salves into our colony.

Smiling Faces, Beautiful Places

Carolina was the first colony to introduce slavery. Their wealth was supported by their slaves. Charles town, which is present day Charleston, was sort of a tropical climate and they could grow up to 295 days a year.

Where I am from, the Carolina's, was the first to introduce slavery. The slaves did most of everything for the wealthy. The area we lived in had kind of a tropical climate so we were able to plant for most of the year. The land was once explored by the Spanish but mostly mission Indians lived there. A mission Indian were those who converted to Catholicism. The Indian tribes kept competing with us to trade. Us, the English, were pretty successful at getting what we wanted. From 1670-1715, 25,000 Indians became slaves thus causing Violence among the Native Americans. The Yamasees turned against the Carolinian's during the Yamasee War because of what they had done.
