Good morning class! Today we are learning about the Thirteen Colonies and some important key things during the colonies.
There were 11 important people in the creation of the colonies and they are Jonathan Edwards, William Bradford, Nathaniel Bacon, John Smith, William Penn, Roger Williams.
They are all important in many different ways to help create many different colonies.
Some other important people were Anne Hutchinson, John Winthrop, John Peter Zenger, Cecil Calvert, Lord Baltimore, and James Oglethorpe.
There were also a few different types of colonies and they were royal colony, which was a colony controlled by a king, proprietary colony, which was land granted from family and just a colony, which was land owned by another country.
These colonies purposes were all different in each colony based on why people were in those colonies.
There were also different "groups" of people. These groups included separatists, puritans, quakers, and pilgrims.
A separatist is a person who wanted to have separate church than the church of england.
A puritan is a religious group that wanted to purify the church of england.
A quaker is a group that believed that people had a direct link with god and that all people should be treated equally.
A pilgrim is a person who takes a religious journey.
Unlike the branches we have now, during the 13 colonies they had the House of Burgesses, which the laws were made and set in.
Another important things was a charter. The purpose of a charter was to give the people the ability to create a new settlement.
People in the 13 colonies had to understand that some others ideas and opinions were always going to be the same, and they had learned to accept that.
Toleration was very important to the 13 colonies because people had to understand others' opinions.
