Title: Founding the Middle Colonies


1
Founding the Middle Colonies
  • Settlement of the Middle Colonies began in New
    Netherland, later New York, when Dutch colonists
    began arriving in the middle 1600s. They were a
    diverse group, taking control of land and
    altering the flora and the fauna as they spread
    farther out. They were also changing the cultures
    they had brought with them from Europe,
    experimenting with greater religious freedom and
    more representative government than Europe had
    ever known.
