Introduction

When you have two groups of people from the same place migrating to a new area, will you have two different ways of life emerge, or will the two have the same ways of living? The British colonies of North America established in two different areas, New England and the Plantation South. Although the colonies are connected by their English roots, two different lifestyles emerged in America by the end of the 17th century. The colonies of North America had a promise of a "New World" where the colonists could build a new way of life. In New England, the colonists hoped to transplant their family and religion into the new colonies. The proprietors of Virginia wanted to profit quickly from colonization, bringing only men to the colonies in search of gold. ...read more.

They created many small towns, with churches as the center for a group of families. The religious principles of the colonists helped them to set up a strong government. Both colonial areas had their reasons for colonization but they were entirely different from their start, so how could the two colonial regions forge a way of life that was the same from the start of the colonies? The people of the colonies were very different from each other. The people were ultimately shaped by the land and opportunity around them. In the North, the land had very rocky soil and was infertile, making farming a hard task. With the infertile soil, the New England colonies began to develop their economy on various trade markets, such as fish, timber, and ships. Industry began to take the upper hand in the economic development of the colony. ...read more.

Conclusion

This difference is what ultimately made the two colonies different. The values placed upon religion and free thought in New England created a place where the values had a big part in people lives. That is not to say that the southern plantation colonies did not have values, but that their values stressed different principles. The people of the south worked very hard, toiling the land of the south in order to keep the crop yield high, so that they could continue the plantation way of life. The New England colonies and the Plantation colonies were very different in how they lived and worked. The values changed as they changed with the land they settled. The way of life differed only because of the opportunities they had. If their ways of life were so different, how did two groups come together to defeat the greatest power of the world during the Revolutionary war? ...read more.
