Transcript of Chapter 3
Be 1660, while tabacco prices fell, large plantations continued to prosper because they were better able to maintain high profits than were small farms. Along with the growth of plantations, there was an increasing need for workers in the newly settled Southern Colonies. Establishing colonies in North America involved a great deal of work. The settlers had to clear the land, construct homes and churches, plant crops, and tend the Fields. As the colonies expanded, the demand for capable workers grew. Maryland arose from the dreams of Sir George Calvert, Lord Baltimore, a Catholic Calvert wanted to establish a safe place for his fellow Catholics, who were being persecuted in England. He also hoped that a colony would bring him a fortunes. Calvert's dream came true in 1632 when King Charles I gave him a proprietary colony north of Virginia. Calvert died before receiving the grant. His son Cecilius Calvert inherited the colony. It was named Maryland. For years the Calvert family and the Penn family argued over the boundary between Maryland and Pennsylvania. In the 1760s they hired 2 British astronomers, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon, to map the line dividing the colonies. In 1663 King Charles II creates a large proprietary colony south of Virginia. The colony was called Carolina, which means" Charles's land" in latin. The kinggave the colony to a group of eight prominent members of his court who had helped him regain hi throne.

Spain and England were enemies because England was Protestant and Spain was Catholic.This eventually leads to war. Spain fell and other colonies were able to explore America. The lost colonies of Roanoke is very important as well. In 1585 Raleigh sent about 100 explorers to settle Roanoke and they came back with promising results. After a difficult winter the colonists of Roanoke Island returned to England. In 1587 Raleigh tried again sending a larger number of people. Years later a man returned and found no remains of The Roanoke Colonists.
Unlike the Jamestown settlers, the next wave of colonists would arrive in search of religious freedom. These colonist were persecuted or treated harshly because King Henry VIII broke away from the Roman Catholic Church and formed the Angelican Church. That the reason why England is a protestant country. Those who wanted to leave and set up their own churches were known as Separatists. The Separatists in the Netherlands made an arrangement with the Virginia Company . The Separatists could settle in Virginia and practice their religion freely. In return they would give the company a share of any profits they made.
The Separatists considere themselves Pilgrims because their journey had a religious purpose. Only 35 of the 102 passengers who boarded the Mayflower in September 1620 were Pilgrims. The other was called"strangers." Because Pilgrim beliefs shaped life in the Plymouth colony, however all the early settlers are usually called Pilgrims.
This chapter is about Colonial America. This took place around 1587-1770. This chapter talk about how america started with the 13 colonies and its religions.
