Storyboard Text

  • This is the Southern Colonies. Slaves lived in these terrible conditions on the plantation. Winters  were rough and the building was drafty and many had dirt floors. 
  • The Southern Colonies  had hot summers and mild winters. The soil was perfect for farming. In the East there were coastal plains and in the west mountians. 
  • In the Southern Colonies, there were few cities because people would live on plantations . Because the plantations were so large many people worked there and most of the social revolved around it. Slaves provided free labor to the plantation owners.
  • Most people in the Southern Colonies  were Anglican. Religion did not have the same affect because plantations were far away from each other. 
  • Most colonies in the South were royal colonies which meant they had a governor who was appointed by the king. The Governor had British soldiers to help him enforce the king's laws. 
  • In the South, there were also small farm owners who were not part of the huge plantation system.  They were often outspoken and many went into politics. The big crops in the South were rice, cotton, and tobacco.
