Zoe Hoover Period 3 Plymouth
THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS were when some 200 people were accused with practicing black magic, and 20 were executed. The whole thing started when a few girls started to disobey the NEW ENGLAND WAY by telling mythical tales, and when they were caught the girls blamed it on innocent people.
Major industries in PLYMOUTH were WHALING, TIMBER, FISHING, and SUBSISTENCE FARMING. Because it was such a rocky area it was very hard to plant crops.
KING CHARLES I would threaten to punish the PURITANS if they did not obey THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. The PURITANS received a CHARTER from the MASSACHUSETTS BAY COMPANY, so they moved to the new world and started a new way of life called THE NEW ENGLAND WAY.
The PILGRIMS landed on PLYMOUTH ROCK in MASSACHUSETTS. They landed in MASSACHUSETTS due to a STORM in CAPE COD. The soil was very ROCKY, which made it very hard to plant crops.
How would you compare and contrast Jamestown and Plymouth? Jamestown was very wet and swampy, while Plymouth was rocky and dry. They were established for different reasons, Jamestown being because King James 1 sent them to expand and to find gold, and Plymouth being for religious freedoms. When Jamestown arrived in Virginia they only came with men, while Plymouth arrived with men, women, and children. They both however were from England and had slaves.
