The use of company labor and overpricing caused a lot of problems with Virginians. The way both colonies related with the Natives also caused differences between them. Virginia has a poor relationship with natives while Massachusetts learned to watch the natives to gain knowledge on how to survive in the area and having good relationships with the natives. Also, both
Also, the nationality varied from colony to colony, leaving similarities in this category scarce. Political views in the colonies were alike in several ways, but one difference was presented in the New England colony. Among the three colonies, differences of geography were made known. The New England colonies, further north than the others, were the coldest colonies. This was beneficial for them, because the climate prevented the spread of life-threatening diseases; however, severe and freezing winters killed and weakened many New England colonists.
Another reason for migration was the idea of primogeniture, which allowed the eldest son to inherit the wealth; leaving others desperate and in hopes of finding riches overseas. Also, many fled to America to escape peonage or prison. These social concerns in England ended up populating the colonies because people believed they would find a better life in America. The second major way that England shaped the colonies were the English politics. At some points, colonists seemingly were allowed plenty of freedom, while other times they were under strict English rule.
The Spanish were more involved in supporting their mother country than that of the New World. “The Spanish introduced new domestic animals. New Mexico developed an economy that combined farming with ranching in sheep, goats, and cattle; trade in buffalo hides and deerskins; and commodities including salt and pine nuts.” The Spanish colonies developed a system called Encomienda. They used this system to exploit and control the Native Americans, making them do all manual labor on the lands in return they offered them legal protection and religious guidance. Spanish colonies were also lacking in natural abundant resources which in turn made their struggle for economic development much more difficult.
Because of this, the Southern colonists made their living off farming cash crops, such as rice, usually in plantations. The Middle colonists also shared a prosperous growing season because of their mild climate. However instead of cash crops, the Middle colonists would grow wheat and grains, being the “breadbasket” of the colonies. New England colonists didn’t have much prosperity in agriculture. They would instead participate in subsistent farming, meaning they grew only what they needed to feed themselves.
The middle colonies exchanged tobacco and the southern colonies added rice, indigo, and furs. The climate and geography of British North America influenced the economic development of the New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies. Many people in New England had very poor lifestyles because of their poor climate and geography. It was the least fertile, and they had short growing seasons, which also lead them to have bad farming. They couldn’t grow many crops because of the poor soil and they had to find some other way of finding crops and providing for their families.
If by any reason, peasants were to have a revolt, Nicholas could just simply sent in a little power to sort out the situation. This is backed up by the fact that the Tsar is heavily respected in his regard as not many would try to oppose him due to his sheer power socially and economically as well as privately. Peasants were agricultural workers and the poorest element of society who didn’t actually own any land but instead, worked on land using manual labour. The Russian peasants of this time had the ideology of slavery in their minds and this would’ve been on the contrary from other peasants from around other parts of Europe. The problem of the Russian peasants of this time was that they were not politically aware, they were the dark and dull masses and they tended to be superstitious.
However, throughout the entire Mid-Atlantic region a variety of ethnic and religious group competed for wealth from farming and fur trade. They did not have it easy though, since they were forced to compete acrimoniously against governments that commanded little popular support. The mid-Atlantic region, unlike either New England or the South, drew many of its original settlers from European states that had been extremely upset by the Protestant Reformation and the religious wars that followed in its wake. Small congregations of Dutch Mennonites, French Huguenots, German Baptists, and Portuguese Jews joined larger communions of Dutch Reformed, Lutherans, Quakers, and Anglicans to create a distinctively diverse religious society. Also, African Americans and the indigenous Indians, with religious traditions of their own, added further variety to the Middle Colony region.
Not only did they advance in these areas and others, but they also excelled in the area of art. The civilizations of both early Mesopotamia and early Egypt contain similarities and differences when it comes to: geography, beliefs and attitudes, social structure, and art. When comparing and contrasting these two ancient societies, one can see how geography played a major role in their success. Mesopotamia’s agriculture profited from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Being that the land in Mesopotamia was flat, the village people had to merge into towns in order to build dikes and canals to prevent the land from flooding.
At first, the Europeans who agreed to set sail to America came from many backgrounds and came with many different motives other than labor. These motives were mainly religious with people seeking freedom to practice faiths that were discouraged in Europe. These groups consisted of English Puritans, French Protestants, Catholics, Quakers, and Mennonites from Germany. Due to the lack of white European laborers, indentured servitude was introduced to increase migration of this group. Indentured servants are individuals contracted to do certain work for a term (usually between four and seven) in return for transportation across the Atlantic and specified payments of food, clothing, housing, or education in a craft.
