How The colonists dealt with illness
The Colonists deal with illness by using old remedies and herbs such as comfrey mixed with oil or water. Some other remedies consisted of mixing beer with sugar and honey. Well, they had other ways such as purging and bleeding, which was a theory that Hermann Boerhaave made, and was very popular. Bleeding, was when you cut the person so the “ infected “ blood would come out, it often left the person very tired and fatigue. Instead of cutting the body and letting blood come out, purging involved you puking, it brought out unhealthy things. It wasn’t as dangerous as bleeding, but was still very painful to do.
Religion in the Colonies.
People in the New England colonies went to church in a meeting house. These meeting houses were also used for different occasions as well. The meeting house was usually a big building and it was in the middle of the whole town. Inside the meeting houses were long benches, people sat on the benches for most of the day because that’s how long the church services were. Most people in the New England colonies were Puritans, the people led very strict lives.
The Middle Colonies
The people in the Middle Colonists had similar looking churches, they were bit different, but they were in the middle of the town, like meeting houses, and people stayed in them for the whole day because that was how long those church hours were. However the middle colonies were different than the New England colonies, they had a mixture of religion. They had Quakers, (who were led by William Penn), Catholics, Jews, Lutherans, and others.
The Southern Colonies
The Southern colony had basically the same church as all the other colonies, you know, they were big, in the middle of the town, and people stayed in them for all day. But the religion was similar the Middle Colony, but a little different. Most religions were allowed in the area, Catholics, Jews, Lutherans, and others. But even though most religions were allowed, the majority of the religion was Angelic and Protestant, and Baptists.
