Although the New England and Chesapeake regions were originally colonized by mainly English settlers, the two regions in time evolved into two distinct societies. By 1700, their religious practices, family relations, and political differences led them in two different directions. New England was a refuge for religious separatists leaving England, while people who immigrated to the Chesapeake region had no religious motives. In Document A, John Winthrop talks a lot about uniting together to basically please God, and spread his word. John Winthrop states that the Puritan goal was to form "a city upon a hill", which would represent a "pure" community, where Christianity could be pursued (Document A).
Within the period of migration to America there were many motives that prompted various groups to want to come to America. When looking at the settlement of Virginia, Capt. John Smith was urging his fellow colonists to build houses and grow food. Once they established this John Smith started sending more settlers over with useful skills. Although he realized the weaknesses of the colonists, he tried to maintain good standing with the local Indians even though he did not care for them that much.
The Chesapeake and New England regions were settled by people of English descent, but by 1700, they had become two distinctly different societies. They had evolved so differently, mainly because of the way that the settlers followed their religion, their way of conducting politics and demographics in the colonies. Even though the settlers came from the same homelandEngland, each group had its own reasons for coming to the New World and different ideas planned for the colonies. On his way to the New World, aboard the Arabella in 1630, John Winthrop, Puritan leader of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, spoke of the plan that he had in store for the colony. He preached that there would be equality in the new colony and that they " must be knit together in this work as one man."
Captain John Smith (January 9, 1580 - June, 1631) was an English adventurer and soldier, and one of the founders of the Jamestown, Virginia, settlement. Smith also led expeditions exploring Chesapeake Bay and the New England coast. Smith was one of 105 settlers who sailed from England on December 19, 1606, and landed in Virginia on April 26, 1607. When they reached North America, the group opened sealed instructions and found that Smith was chosen as one of the seven leaders of the new colony. This was controversial since Smith had been accused of mutiny on the voyage.
Kevin Tattitch RB DBQ on Revolution In the period from 1750 to 1776, conflicts between England and their colonies in North America led to colonists demanding their independence and growing their identity as Americans. By looking at these documents and using prior knowledge of the revolution we can analyze to what extent the colonists developed their sense of identity as Americans. They did this this politically, socially, and constitutionally. Politically, they developed a sense of identity through the Albany Conference, which tried to unite them under one government. Socially they developed an identity by uniting because of hardships of British taxation, and regulation.
John Winthrop emphasizes on the ideology of a model Christian. He explains that the purpose of settling in the New World was to build a model Christian society, one where people will care for one another, one where oppression of church did not exist and where the people are united under one God (Document A). In effort of settling, the immigrants devised a series of laws intended to govern themselves under a common flag. These laws created were integrated with a one entity- God (Document D). In addition, these new laws defined “democracy” in the region in which religion played a majestic base.
Perhaps the longest ongoing debate involving our country is the one concerning the conflict between the European settlers and the Indians, in the seventeenth century. Today we ask the question, what does it mean to be a Native American? Or to go further, how are we to understand the concept of “otherness”? To answer these questions, I found two different articles to get a better understanding myself. After reading an article by a Native American and an article by a non-Native American, I’ve come to the personal conclusion that being Native American is almost the same as being from a native country with a different culture.
If John Smith had already accounted false information, who knows what else he had lied about? Smith’s dishonesty besmirched the credibility of his writings. An effective leader is one that teaches the people how to successfully lead themselves, even when their leader is away. Obviously, John Smith did not accomplish this, therefore having his colony plummet into complete bedlam under his absence. William Bradford possessed superb leaderships skills and proved to be far more effective in driving his colony to success, compared to John Smith.
His audience is most likely the general American population since the book is giving information on an important piece of American history. The book goes in chronological order from before the expedition was even being thought of to the end of the journey. Ambrose accurately informs the author of this historical expedition and Lewis as he intended to do. The book begins with the telling of how Lewis’s life began. It starts at his youth, giving information about where he lived, his family, and what life was like in the Virginia of the 1800s.
Indians were America’s original people and through my sources I will analyze their relationship with the immigrating people. A few of the things I would like to focus on would be conflicts like King Phillips War, Manifest Destiny, various Tribes, and of course the overall affect that the
