Upon entering the bay in early August of 1610, the ship spent the next three months examining and mapping the eastern shore of the bay, but found no passageway to Asia. During the ship's explorations, it eventually became stuck in ice in early November and forced the crew ashore. During the rough winter, supplies and provisions were scarce, and discontent became rife amongst crew members. Once the ice melted and the ship was free, Hudson planned to continue his voyage to further explore the Hudson Bay in search of a passage but the majority of the crew adamantly
In 1620, the would-be settlers joined a London stock company that would finance their trip aboard the Mayflower, a three-masted merchant ship, in 1620. A smaller vessel, the Speedwell, had initially accompanied the Mayflower and carried some of the travelers, but it proved unseaworthy and was forced to return to port by September.ome of the most notable passengers on the Mayflower included Myles Standish, a professional soldier who would become the military leader of the new colony; and William Bradford, a leader of the Separatist congregation who wrote the still-classic account of the Mayflower voyage and the founding of
(p. 1 European Exploration) In October 1492, Columbus landed on the island of Hispaniola (present-day Haiti and Dominican Republic). Columbus believed that he was in the outer islands of the Far East, and he made three more voyages in search of a path to Asia. During the last three voyages, Columbus reached the major islands of the Caribbean, which he named the West Indies. It was not until 1507, a year after Columbus's death, that cartographer Amerigo Vespucci suggested that Columbus had landed on an entirely new land that was far from Asia. (p. 2 European Exploration) Although Spain's new claims created the Spanish Empire, the extent of its lands was still unknown.
America was a place for dreams and new beginnings, until white people arrived in 1607. Three groups sailed over the treacherous Atlantic from their cruel lives in England to set up peaceful religious colonies. The only problem is that they attempted to settle in their own way and all failed dismally. The New England, Middle and Southern Colonies grew differently over the period 1619-1760.Examining the three sets of colonies will prove that they were all different: socially, economically, politically but not philosophically. Socially the three groups of colonies developed differently.
The difference in education and in the writer’s background history comes into play with the writings of Crevecoeur and Schlesinger. Crevecoeur was born in Normandy in 1731. He was educated in England and immigrated to America in 1754, at the age of 23. Settling in New York Crevecoeur married an American merchant’s daughter. In few years later he had to make an emergency trip back over seas and was arrested under false pretence of being a spy and stayed in prison for 3 months.
“Unit One Assignment-Focus on Puritanism and Travel Narratives in Colonial America (<1600-1783): The Journals of Captain John Smith, Edited by John M. Thompson” Captain John Smith, was an English soldier and an adventurer, as well as one of the founders of Jamestown, Virginia. Smith also led many expeditions exploring the Chesapeake Bay and the New England coast. Smith was just one of a hundred and five settlers who set sail from England in1606 looking for something new, and arrived in Virginia in 1607. When they reached North America, the group opened sealed instructions and learned that Smith had been chosen to be one of the new seven leaders of the colony. This was also controversial since Smith had been accused of mutiny while on the voyage.

In Spain 1942, Christopher Columbus set out on a voyage to India, his hopes were to find a shorter route and to trade with the peoples there. Due to some mathematical and navigational errors he sailed west instead and landed in San Salvador 33 days later thinking it was the West Indies. Columbus was the first European to cross the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas hence opening the doorway to centuries of global exploration and colonization. A few years later in 1947 a Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama set route to India. Da Gama sailed south of Portugal into the Atlantic around Africa and eventually reaching India thirty-seven hundred kilometers later.
Little is known about his childhood and his education but he joined the Spanish army when he was about 23. During the Battle of Lepanto, Miguel was injured for life. As he was traveling home after his service in the army in 1575, he was captured by Barbary pirates and enslaved with fellow Christians in the Algiers. His attempted escapes failed and it was not until 1580 that his mother was able to pay his ransom. Miguel got married to Catalina de Palacios and began writing plays and poetry in 1584.
Charles got off to a bad start. He broke away from Parliament to rule without them. Now that Charles did not have a Parliament, he had to find new ways to raise money. One method he used was ‘Ship Money’. This was a tax to improve the navy in times of war.
