Title: Founding the Middle and Southern Colonies

Founding the Middle and Southern Colonies
  • The Founding of the Middle and Southern Colonies
    Provided Settlers with many Economic opportunities

Key Terms and Key People
  • Key Terms
  • Patroon
  • Proprietary Colonies
  • Royal Colony
  • Key People
  • Peter Stuyvesant
  • Duke of York
  • William Penn
  • Quaker
  • James Oglethorpe

Stuck in the Middle with you
  • New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania
    make up the Middle Colonies
  • Swedes, Dutch, English, Germans, and Africans
    came to the colonies
  • Protestants, Catholics, Quakers, and Jews all
    came to the colonies
  • The Valleys had rich soil and mild winters
    perfect for Farming and Livestock

Start Spreading the News
  • The Dutch Settle New Netherland and use the
    Patroon System to increase the populations by
    offering land grants and Special rights
  • Under Peter Stuyvesant New Netherland grew by
    attacking and taking over New Sweden
  • England, Under the Duke of York, looked to kick
    the Dutch out of the New Netherlands to Expand
  • With No help from the Netherlands, the Dutch give
    up their settlement and New York becomes a
    Proprietary Colony

Earth Quakers
  • The Duke of York becomes the Largest Landowner in
    America and Gives land to form New Jersey while
    offering religious freedom
  • William Penn Joins the Quakers and is given land
    that would become Pennsylvania

Penn Station
  • Penn Creates a colony where all religions could
    live in harmony without fear of abuse
  • Penn also granted freedom to the Native Americans
  • Pennsylvania becomes a wealthy colony and Penn
    Grants part of his land to form the Delaware

And then came the Orioles
  • The Southern Colonies of Maryland, the Carolinas,
    and Georgia are formed in a climate ideal for
    Tobacco, Rice, and Indigo
  • Maryland is formed by Lord Baltimore and Becomes
    a Tobacco Producing Colony
  • Most Laborers were servants and slaves making it
    hard to attract women to Maryland

Sweet Carolina
  • The Carolinas are created and become a place of
    religious freedom
  • The use of slaves, including Native Americans, to
    farm land leads to wars against the Native
  • When the owners of Carolina would not send help
    to fight the Spanish, Carolina would become a
    Royal Colony
  • The colony would be divided into North and South
    Carolina and would be ruled by governors

Georgia on my Mind
  • Georgia is formed by James Oglethorpe and becomes
    a refuge for debtors and a military outpost
    against Florida
  • After an Unsuccessful takeover attempt by Spain
    Georgia English, Swiss, German and Scottish
    settlers came to the colony
  • After James Oglethorpe set strict rules for the
    colony, the king of England made it a Royal Colony

This has been another WORLD famous Mr. Green
