We live in New England!
We came to America to start colonies to make money. Cash-crop farming in the South could be extremely profitable!
We're Separatists...we came for the freedom to worship our way.
Middle colonists came for both reasons
The story of the United States begins with 13 English colonies. The colonies were founded for different reasons.
The different geography influenced the development of each region. Regional economies depended on available resources.
New democratic ideas began to form in colonial America. Some of these ideas continued English traditions and some created new "American" rights.
One new democratic idea was based on religion. Religious changes made many American colonists feel more independent.
The desire to build on English tradition influenced many American colonists feelings towards their mother country. A few new "enlightened" ideas set the stage for a conflict with England.
England's violation of what the colonists saw as traditional English rights, and violations of colonial self-government sparked the official separation of the colonies into a new nation.
