As you probably know, I am William Penn, I am an English QUAKER who was given a charter to make this middle colony called Pennsylvania. Quakers like myself believe that people have a direct link with God and that all people are equal in God's eyes. We treated the natives with respect.
I am JOHN PETER ZENGER, and due to my questioning of the New York governor's policies, I have been jailed and sued.

We are colonists from the Southern colonies, including Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, and Virginia. The Southern Colonies were not very religious like the New England Colonies and the economics depended on cash crops such as tobacco and cotton. There were multiple plantations like this and people had slaves in order to maintain the crops. The soil and land was great for farming purposes.
