Remember The Organizing Principal:
Between 1607 and 1763, the British North American colonies developed experience in, and the expectation of self-government in the political, religious, economic, and social aspects of life.
As we review the data consider one concept for the future:
How did the economic, social, religious
differences of the regions make the
Civil War of 1861 inevitable?
OVERVIEW: Economic systems varied widely through
The British North American colonies. Sectional
economic differences were largely determined by
variations in climate and geography
OVERVIEW: Although most voluntary settlers were
transplanted Europeans, the economic conditions in
the colonies and the evolution of the slave system
produced a significantly different social structure.
European ethnic mix: Greatest in the Middle Colonies (Ex: Germans in Pa) but AA slaves gave the South the greatest racial diversity (AA were the majority in SC throughout most of the 18th century)
Labor: Scarce and expensive and new sources were constantly sought.
OVERVIEW: Colonial culture and values, originally patterned after England’s, were reflected in the press and education systems and in the person of Benjamin Franklin.
