Early Colonists 1630
Puritans and Religion in Early America Welcome!!!! This is a gallery picture of famous Puritans from the 17th century, including Thomas Gouge, William Bridge, Thomas Manton, John Flavel, Richard Sibbes, Stephen Charnock, William Bates, John Owen, John Howe, and Richard Baxter. 1754-1763
French and Indian War During this time Puritans, a religious group from Europe, arrived and began to force Indians into their religion, which was Protestantism. Most people who refused to do this were completely shunned through this time period. 1775-1783
Revolutionary War 1787
US Constitution is Adopted Many early colonists faced the problem of finding a way of income in the new world. They also had trouble trying to find a place to live, and getting along with Native Americans. These are the people who strived to create a new nation, in which we are now living. The French and Indian War is reffered to in this way because the war was between Great Britain and France, with the Native Americans as allies of the French. In Canada, most people refer to this war as La Guerre de la Conquête ("The War of Conquest"). It is also reffered to as the "Anglo-French Rivalry." This war first began as a war between Great Britain and the United States. It later became a full blown world war, Britain versus the United States, with the allies of France, Netherlands, and Spain. After the Revolutionary war, the New Nation needed a basis for the government. This lead to the creation of the constitution. The constitution is a document with the regulations and rights found in the land. It was adopted (put to use) in 1787. The Revolutionary War to The US Constitution The revolutionary war was the war that separated the US from the domain of Great Britain. At first, the war was simply a revolt, yet it later became a war with Britain on one side, and the United States, Spain and France on the other. This war was the trigger of a chain reaction leading to many great events here in the United States, starting with the Declaration of Independence.
The War itself was actually an effect of the “political” American Revolution. This was the time when the Colonists were angry at the British Government for taxing them more than they felt necessary. Even though the colonies had at first been loyal to the King, they began to form a Continental Congress, the first form of government they had established. This Congress was followed by a shadow (small, individual) government in each colony.
Later, the colonists grew so irritated they began to Boycott the imported British Tea. This tea was highly taxed., yet was very useful to the colonists. This later led up to the Boston Tea Party, in 1773. This is the day a group of colonists dressed as Indians and raided the ships carrying the tea in the Boston Harbor. A lot of tea was destroyed in this raid. Due to this, Massachussets lost it’s self government, and was taken under control of the British Government.
After the change of power in Massachusetts, weapons were found in Concord. The head of the army sent troops to destroy the weapons. This led to the first battles, the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Later, the Parliament refused to take action in intervention, declaring the Congress traitors. The Congress responded by Declaring the United States an Independent nation. The war itself lasted until 1783, thanks to the Treaty of Paris. French And Indian War The French and Indian War took place between the years 1754 and 1763. It was also known as the Seven Years War, thanks to the fact that it lasted for seven years. The war was over the territory the French had claimed. It was between British America and France.
During this war, the Indians sided with the French. At first, things seemed to be in favor of the French. But then the British began to cut off the supplies of the French.
Eventually the British won the war. It was also during this time that the Salem Witch Trials took place. Because the colonists did not understand the Indians, they thought the Indians were witches. This brought tension to the town, and many people were killed due to accusations of witchery. To Pay for the war, the British began to tax the colonists, as well as all the colonies they had around the globe. This made he colonists irritated as the Parliament imposed and repealed different taxes and laws. This eventually fed up the colonists, and thus, the Revolution began. Wake up, get up from your bed of hay. Wash up, eat breakfast (usually clabber, a yogurt like food made with soured milk), go outside and do your chores. This usually meant
Boys/Men: pick wood, clean the barn, make repairs, go to meetings, hunt..etc
Girls/Women: Sew, cook, clean, wash, and unavoidably… gossip.
Afterwards, if it takes long, you eat dinner, which usually had some vegetables, and maybe some meat, depending on the hunt.. Then you wash, and go back to bed.
This was the daily life of a colonist. Most did not really change due to the war, and taxes were constantly on the mind of the colonists, as well as fear of what the Parliament would do next….. Life as a Colonist Or Daily Miseries? :O
(Hopefully the first) Daily Life One of the official definitions of settlements is “A place, usually uninhabited, where people establish a country.” This basically describes North America. It was virtually uninhabited, and the colonists established a country. Of course, settlements, in another context, could mean an agreement, or even a place where settlers settled………. How nice! Some settlements included Jamestown, Virginia, and more. Settlements? When the colonists arrived… what did they see? This is a frequently asked question, and many people answer the shore line. Technically that is true, but in the point of view of the colonists, this was also a land of prosperity and riches. Yet they also saw it as a challenge………….. When They Arrived….. How did they survive?? Early Colonists Settlers who first arrived usually stayed near the shore, since all the supplies they received came from over seas. This lead to the formation of the 13 colonies;
