Back then people who pay off the money they owed people they went to debtor's prison
Most of the people who lived in Georgia were farmers of different religion
They believed that they should have many children helping on the farm
They made rules against slavery
The farms grew rice, tobacco, and indigo ( a plant that was used to make purple dye) and cotton North and South Carolina was a great place to earn money (cash crops)

all you need to make it is a silkworm, Mulberry tree, and moth larvae
you need to raise the silkworm is the Mulberry tree
let the silkworm spin a cocoon
after the cocoon has been spun they are heated to kill the larvae inside
then they are solked in water Williams-Burg was the Capital of Virginia Colony
