Yes everyone on this boat wanted to separate from England. People could be whatever, a separatist, a Quaker, or a puritan We got a charter to make a settlement in the new world
Hello, people on this boat are a bunch of pilgrims.
Yes, we are a royal colony ruled by King James. But, there is another type of colony called a proprietary colony
I am in the colony of Jamestown that we made. We have a lot of toleration for what people do with their land. But we needed a form of government so we created the house of burgesses.
After me, there will another ruler named Willam Bradford. Nathaniel Bacon led a rebellion here in 1676
Jamestown was founded and governed by John Smith
Now that I showed you around Jamestown lets visit other colonies created by wonderful people.But, first, let me introduce another important person before we go.
Thank you, I'm Jonathan Edwards and I led revivals to get people to return to christianity.
We helped form Rhode Island. I am Anne Hutchinson and he is Roger Williams. The people of Massachusetts and John Winthrop kicked me out for disagreeing against the Puritans.
These are the people that formed Rhode Island!
I am Cecil Calvert, Lord Baltimore. I formed Maryland and I spread tea, I heard that there was a person in New York that got arrested. But he didn't get found guilty therefore finding the basics of freedom of speech. His name was John Peter Zenger.
