These men were not the type to do hard labor works. Men in Jamestown didn’t produce any food and depended on the food supply they brought from England, which didn’t last long. Fortunately, colonists in Jamestown got food supply from the Native there, which helped Jamestown to survive the first winter. Moreover, colonists in Jamestown also suffered from diseases. Besides, another major problem encountered by the colonists there was polluted water.
Around the early 1600’s, the race between the European nations for industrial and commercial revolution brought about a dramatic impact on Canadian soil. New settlement was established by the French close to St.Lawrance river, influenced by the trans-Atlantic trade that seemed to be more profitable because of high fur prices in Europe. However the introduction of military, religious and political policies played a big role towards growth and development of the colony, New France. To begin with, the French crown was keener to consolidate his power and the control of the majority of the fur trade in North America given the fact that fur and beaver trade had high returns of profit because of the high demand in the fashion market. Just like any other colonial emperor, the French established alliance with Huron native tribe who were considered to be the strongest tribe amongst Natives tribes.
After the war, there was still no liberty for blacks; in fact, the colonists disliked the idea of granting freedom to Blacks that they refused their offer to fight on the side of the patriots. George Washington had turned down the requests of blacks, seeking freedom, to fight in the Revolutionary army. Furthermore, many other rights, such as the right of, "no taxation without representation” was violated even after the war. Actually, after the war, the majority of the population still lacked representation, because voting was restricted to land owning, white males, which only made up a fraction of the population. "The Continental Congress, which governed the colonies through the war, was dominated by rich men.
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent, or blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property. We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by this wealth. We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, and no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another. We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamentals things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.” This quote was stated by, John (Fire) Lame Deer, a wichasha wakan (The Holy Man).
Before the Europeans colonized the Americas, there were people that lived on the land. The Native Americans that inhabited these lands were not warned of the Europeans’ arrival, nor did they know that there were civilizations past the rocky shores of the Americas. To the colonists, the Americas were undiscovered lands that they intended to call their own. However, the Native Americans proved to be an obstacle in their plan. The Europeans looked down on the Native Americans and referred to them as “savages” because their society did not match their own.
American Fur Company John Jacob Astor, founder of the American Fur Company, was the creator of the first trust or monopoly, and he was the first multi-millionaire in the United States. His fortune came primarily from the fur trade. Born on July 17, 1763 in Waldorf, Germany, his cleverness, guile, and business suave shaped the early American frontier. Arriving in New York in 1783, he soon began to buy furs from trappers and Indians, establishing a fur goods shop in New York. In 1794, the Jay Treaty between Great Britain and the United States opened new markets in Canada and the Great Lakes region.

Come and Get It! Propaganda and Early American Colonization Efforts In 1518 Richard Hakluyt wrote his Discourse Concerning Western Planting to persuade Queen Elizabeth I to begin colonizing America for England’s gain. Hakluyt makes a thorough argument for the settling of the New World, and for England to have a competitive hold on her competition and be the first successful settlers in the New World. The Discourse was furthermore written to point out the positive elements of making America a major part of furthering the British Empire and to prosper financially from America’s “endless” potential. Hakluyt also pointed that the overflow of people, both in need of religious freedom and in want of more business opportunities, within England needed a place to go.
Europeans in the Pacific Australia and the Larger World -European geographers had speculated about terra australis inncognita “unknown southern land” since the second century C.E. -European principal interest was trade and they rarely sailed out of their way in search of unknown land. Dutch Exploration -Dutch mariner Jan Carstenzs reported that Australia was n arid and barren region that contained nothing that man could make use of (no mountains, metals, woods, plants). --Europeans visitors did not linger long enough to become familiar with native Australian peoples because they were nomadic foragers and were considered savages. British Colonists -Cook reported that the Australian region was suitable for settlement after visiting Botany
However, England dominated the region economically. In an effort to claim the territory peaceably, the United States encouraged its citizens to settle there, appealing to their sense of nationalism as well as offering incentives in the form of land subsidies. The government told citizens it was their “Manifest Destiny”, their God-given right and obligation, to settle the west and bring the American culture to the area. The Oregon Trail
