The 17th and 18th Century Colonies
Government in the New England Colonies
Massachusetts ( including Maine)
The Maine part of Massachusetts was founded by John Winthorp in 1630, while William Bradforn founded Plymouth in 1620. They consisted of either separatist (those who wish to separate from the Church of England) and Puritans (those who wish to purify the Church). Agriculture (mainly for the household) and manufacturing were the ways they earned their money. It generalizes the Native Americans but the Massachusetts colony had two different wars with the Indians, Pequot War and King Philip's war.
They also had the Salem Witch Trials here, a time of terror and extreme hostility.
