Colonial Period
  • Colonies are territories established by
    governments in a foreign land.
  • Spain was the first to establish colonies in the
    New World
  • They dominated much of South America, modern-day
    Mexico, Florida, and parts of Georgia

3
Colonial Period
  • France came next and established colonies along
    rivers and inland waterways. Settled along St.
    Lawrence River, Ohio and Mississippi Rivers
  • Founded Quebec as a settlement
  • Made money from the fur trade and trading with
    Native Americans.

4
Jamestown
  • Jamestown, Virginia became the first successful
    English colony in 1607.
  • Founded by the Virginia Company to make money off
    its products and raw materials.
  • Colonists were not use to manual labor needed to
    build a colony they wanted to get rich quick by
    finding gold.

5
Jamestown
  • The colony was faltering until John Rolfe
    introduced tobacco as a source of income.
  • Tobacco created a wealthy class of growers in
    Virginia.
  • To attract more settlers, Virginia introduced the
    headright system
  • This promised 50 acres of land to those who
    settled in the colony.

6
Virginia and Native Americans
  • Most Native Americans lived under a tribal
    confederation led by Chief Powhatan. (Father of
    Pocahontas)
  • After several skirmishes with the Native
    Americans, Jamestown established control of the
    region.
  • Conflicts with the Native Americans continued in
    the western regions of VA.

7
Virginias Social Structure
  • Society became divided between large landowners,
    poor farmers, indentured servants and slaves.
  • Indentured servants were people who could not
    afford to come to North America on their own, so
    they agreed to work for a landowner for seven
    years in exchange for fare.

8
Virginias Social Structure
  • When their seven years was complete, the servants
    became landowners (headrights)
  • Land became less available and settlement pushed
    farther west.
  • Farmers in the west had conflicts with the Native
    Americans along the frontier.
  • Governor refused to help the poor western farmers
    and favored the rich easterners.

9
Bacons Rebellion
  • 1676 tensions led to an armed conflict between
    the Natives and western farmers led by Nathaniel
    Bacon.
  • Governor condemned the action and Bacon turned
    his followers against Jamestown Governor had to
    flee and Jamestown was burned to the ground.
  • Rebellion ends when Bacon dies.

10
Bacons Rebellion
  • The wealthy ruling class saw the discontent among
    the lower classes
  • This shifted the focus away from indentured
    servants who would become lower class farmers-
    to the use of slavery.

11
Slavery Arises in Virginia
  • Slavery is a system in which people are owned as
    property.
  • The First African slaves arrived in 1619 at
    Jamestown.
  • The institution of slavery helped to firmly
    establish the plantation system in Virginia and
    the southern colonies.

12
Virginias Government
  • Due to the distance from England, the British
    adopted a policy known as salutary neglect.
  • Basically, they let the colonies govern
    themselves.
  • Royal governors were appointed, but local
    legislatures had the real power.
  • Legislatures were bicameral one house appointed
    by the governor one house directly elected by
    eligible voters.

13
House of Burgesses
  • 1619, Virginia established the first legislative
    body in America the House of Burgesses

16
New England Government
  • Their first efforts at self-government were laid
    out in the Mayflower Compact drafted while still
    aboard the Mayflower.
  • Their representative government took the form of
    the town meeting it gave citizens a voice in
    government
  • Church leaders tended to be authoritative!

17
Religion and Dissent

    England Life anyone who disagreed with the
    Church was banished.

    about Church teachings left to form the colony
    of Rhode Island.
  • Thomas Hooker left to form the colony of
    Connecticut in 1636

18
Fundamental Orders of Connecticut
  • Thomas Hooker set up this set of laws for their
    colony.

    the consent of the people and set limits on
    what government could do.

26
Why have colonies anyway?
  • Main reason was the theory of mercantilism, which
