Unit 1--Colonial Era (1580-1754)

Unit Overview: Beginning in the 1580s, numerous European powers including Spain, France, the Netherlands, and Great Britain competed in the race to create colonies in North America. Differences among the European colonial patterns led to differences in governments, economies, and cultures in the North American colonies as well as their impact on Native American Indians. The British colonies became the most populous and successful by the 17th century but remained divided among three distinct regions: New England, mid-Atlantic, and southern colonies. Southern colonies (VA, MD, NC, SC, GA) were characterized by cash-crop plantations and large populations of African slaves and white indentured servants. The New England colonies (Plymouth, MA, CT, RI, NH) were characterized by Puritan religious devotion, families, and small-scale farming. The mid-Atlantic colonies (NY, PA, NJ, DE) were characterized by diverse groups of people, religions, and occupations.
