Transcript of Southern Colonies

The Southern Colonies during the 1600s-1760s
The economic aspects of the Southern Colonies were similar in several ways. All of the colonies were involved with agricultural production of products such as cotton, rice, timber, indigo, and tobacco. Colonies such as North and South Carolina and Georgia provide plenty of fertile land that can be useful in large scale production. Along with the agricultural farming, the south has built a strongly substantial trade network with the natives and surrounding colonies. This combination of well developed economy comes from the hard working citizens that maintain their success.
Along with a strong economy, the southern colonies had strong based social beliefs. They welcomed diverse populations because of the freedom of race and religion policy. Many of the colonies like Maryland and Georgia even passed laws to ensure that anyone could be free to live by their beliefs without persecution. The families of the south are responsible for the region’s agricultural success by working together during harvest time. Children are even given off time from school to help gather the crop. Because of the need for more helping hands on the farm, population rates are steadily increasing which helps boost economic and political polls.
The people also have more freedom to voice their opinions in the south. Voting is not subjugate to certain religious groups and is in fact optional to all free men. The constitutions in the southern colonies are fairly written to ensure that the people are the ones with the power. The Declaration of Rights in Maryland and the Fundamental Constitution of Carolina are written to guarantee that the state representatives stay true to the requirements of the law. Other colonies are governed by elected representatives and a separate chamber of delegates to make sure that everyone upholds the constitution.
The Southern colonies as a whole have developed a strong society that represents all the aspects necessary for success. Through their open minded perspectives, the south has adopted an extremely diverse society that welcomes people of all races and religion. These hard working people of the south have built and maintained a healthy economy through agriculture and trade. Both the friendly society and business based economy both contribute to their accommodating political structure that meets the needs of all people. Investing in the Southern Colonies would be a smart decision that would benefit anyone. In short, investing in the south would be an investment in your future.
