Transcript of Comparing the New England Colonies with those of the Chesapeake

New Englanders enforce a strong sense of community with universal access to property and fair wages and prices, all regulated by a civil compact under God's watchful eye. Doc. D - Articles of Agreement, Springfield, Massachusetts Doc. E - Wage and Price Regulation Doc. F - Captain John Smith, History of Virginia, 1624 Doc. G - Governor Berkeley and His Council
on the Their Inability to Defend Virginia
Against a Dutch Attack Doc. H - Bacon's "Manifesto," justifying his rebellion against Virginia Governor Berkeley in 1676 These emigrants are particularly young
