Colonial America -- Issues and Answers Essay

… Colonial America -- Issues and Answers

Did race determine whom the colonists, would enslave, or was it coincidental that the majority of the enslaved population would be a certain group? Contrast the slavery issues in Chesapeake with the slavery in South Carolina and Georgia.

In the book Slavery in Colonial America, 1619-1776, author Betty Wood delves deeply into the dynamics of the work that needed to be done in Virginia -- and who would do that work -- beginning in Roanoke in the 1580s (but that community vanished, never to be heard from). Meanwhile, before British settlers left Europe for the New World it was known that Spanish galleons "laden down with gold and other precious metals" were making their way back to Europe from….

Colonial America: Questions Puritans Essay

… In contrast, African-Americans had far less leverage as slaves. In particular, slaves laboring to harvest cash crops of the South were isolated from developing American society and created their own culture, in contrast to the smaller numbers of house servants in the North.

Q3. Investing in the New England area or the Chesapeake?

The New England colonies are much more independent from the British crown in terms of their governance. The "Massachusetts Bay Colony had to obey English laws. However, its charter provided more independence than did the royal charter of Virginia" (The Pilgrims and Puritans come to America to avoid religious persecution," Holt Social Studies, 2012). New England society is governed by and influenced by religious norms, much more so than the American South.…. [read more]


Economy of Colonial America Term Paper

… " Using this formula, and plugging the math into 1980 dollars, per capita income for "free" colonists in 1650 was $572; for 1720 it was $826; and for 1774 it rose to $1,043, according to McCusker's research. There was a dramatic disparity between wealth in the "Upper and Lower South" and the New England and Middle Colonies (Table 3.3, 61). To wit, the "Net Worth per Free White Person" (NWPFWP) in New England (using Pounds Sterling) in 1774 was 33.00; in the Middle Colonies in the same year it was 51.00; but in the Upper and Lower South, it was 132.00 Pounds Sterling. One reason New England lagged behind in NWPFWP (92) was that those settlers "...lacked a major staple commodity to export" to the…. [read more]


Slavery in America Essay

… The sellers were required to disclose any known defects (as well as defects they were not aware of at the time of the sale), and they were bound "by explicit contractual language" (Wahl, 5).

This illustration from www.infographics.com

(Google images) shows a group of slaves being offered to buyers. The laws in two particular states regarding the sale of slaves stand out as unique in this milieu. In South Carolina the pro-buyer policy presumed that "any slave sold at full price was sound" (Wahl, 5). In Louisiana if a purchased slave turned out to be diseased or who committed a crime, the buyer could "generate a lawsuit" (Wahl, 5).

Defenders of slavery argued that if slavery ended, it…. [read more]


Autobiographical Narrative of Colonial American Term Paper

… However, the mixture of ethnicities comes with different religious believes. This makes it quite hard for me and other people who are of the same origin as I to link up and practice our worship rituals. Moreover, the major religion here is Christianity. This makes my religion lesser and hence the challenge to manage to practice it.

Being a simple slave, some activities are a luxury that I can only dream of (Kellogg, 2005). Such include accessing recreational facilities and being able to enjoy freely. Socializing is a thing of the rich and those people who have status within the community. There is only one bar in the neighborhood that serves all the slave workers and the people who do the manual labor. This point…. [read more]


Religion in Colonial America Essay

… Religion in Colonial America

Religion in the Thirteen Colonies

Religion was an important issue in the original Thirteen Colonies. At first, the dominant religion (and the nature of the religious dominance of one religion in particular) closely reflected the British origin of the Colonists. While the American Colonies did allow more religious freedom than was possible in Britain, there were still fundamental conflicts and elements of religious persecution in the Colonies that were directly related to their British heritage (Nevins & Commager, 1992). In some cases, those attitudes were further fueled by concerns and fears about the possible allegiance of some Colonists to potential foreign enemies of the Colonies (Furlong, Margaret, & Sharkey, 1988; Nevins & Commager, 1992). Religion also affected the adoption of the…. [read more]

Reactions around the world

The Cuban Revolution can be considered to be one of the most important events that took place in Latin America during the Cold War. Although the scale of the actions that led to the overthrow of Fulgencio Batista's regime was somewhat reduced to the Cuban region, the impact it had, particularly in the economy of the Cold War's balance of power and confrontation between the capitalist and the communist structures was indeed an important factor for the way in which events would later develop. Probably the most relevant…. [read more]


Evolution of Religious Tolerance in Colonial America Research Proposal

… Evolution of Religious Tolerance in Colonial America

The role that women in colonial America had upon the shaping of the American life style

The purpose of the present paper is to understand the social mechanisms which contributed to the shaping of the cultural reality which we nowadays call "America." Since the issue is extremely complex, the paper will focus upon a single category of factors which influenced its development, that is the women living in the colonial period.

Life during colonial times was very hard. The economic situation forced everybody to work very hard, not in order to strive, but in order to survive. Stability was not an element that one could often meet, at least not at social level as far as the family…. [read more]


USA Intervention of Central America Essay

… USA Intervention of Central America

The history of Central America was considered to be a colorful one, though it was a very complicated because of historical events that took place influencing the political, economical and cultural development of the Central America region. The United States of America intervention of Central America was very extensive in the twentieth century (Burbach & Flynn, 2009). The apologists and prosecutors explain the U.S. interventions by arguing that the American policy makers have genuinely believed that the Central America is an area of vital significance to the U.S. And so it has intervened there repeatedly in the name of states' security, despite the exaggeration of the national security threats. During this period, the worldwide drive for consolidated empires prompted the…. [read more]


American Colonialism Opportunity in Colonial Amercia Colonization Essay

… American Colonialism

OPPORTUNITY in COLONIAL AMERCIA

Colonization of the New World in the seventeenth century offered unprecedented opportunity for Europeans, particularly refugees from the religious intolerance and persecutions of minority religions in England. Even after initial reports suggested that the new territories were rich in precious metals proved erroneous, the new colonies still presented opportunities for increased political autonomy and potential for exploitation of new natural resources. Despite the progress in the areas of personal freedoms and potential for profitable work in early colonial America, social change in certain areas was comparatively slow to take root, especially in the case of women, and of course, black

Africans brought over to the New World as slaves (Hayes).

Gradually, over the course of the first century and…. [read more]


Colonial Histories Have Shaped Different Developmental Paths Research Proposal

… Colonial Histories Shape Future Development Paths

Do colonial histories in fact provide a preview into the future for developing nations? Can scholars and researchers look into a nation's past and gain an understanding of why its modern economy and culture exist in the present form? When researching historical circumstances can an alert student see how a nation in development stages achieved the economic success -- at least set the pattern -- it enjoys today? How has structural adjustment worked for nations in Asia and in Latin America? Is the historical use of neoliberalism the answer in terms of jump-starting economies in the developing world?

In the readings there are solid examples that bring these issues into brighter focus, and this paper will review and critique…. [read more]


America's Rise to World Power Term Paper

… America's rise to world power during the Gilded Age (1877-1914) and the nature of the Civil Rights movement in the United States following World War II (1945-1969).

Discuss America's rise to world power during the Gilded Age (1877-1914). Include commentary on relevant leading personalities, issues, and events. In your opinion, did American imperialism contradict the principles in the Declaration of Independence? Explain.

America is a nation founded upon the principles of constitutional democracy -- even though it has often contradicted those principles in its practice. The Declaration of Independence does not merely endorse the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all human beings, but the right of self-determination in governance, and the right of the people to free itself from a….

Reasoning Assessment of Issues in Ethiopia and Their Effect on U.S. Interests Research Paper

… S. Interests

It is evident that Ethiopia has been able to have strong influences on the United States. Research shows that for more than a century, Ethiopia and the United States have really enjoyed the warm government-to-government and person -to-person relationship. It is clear that those ties have been able to transcend the way of time, and the strong pledges of business and friendship have been able to go on and on over the years, unimpeded by personal changes in government.

However, the United States-Ethiopian relationship was something that was at one time established in December 1903 succeeding nine days of conferences in Ethiopia among Emperor Menelik and the administration of Ethiopia and Robert P. Skinner, a representative of President Theodore Roosevelt (Stuart Munro-Hay, 2009).…. [read more]


American Colonies the Puritans Who Arrived Essay

… ¶ … American Colonies

The Puritans who arrived in America in 1630 were on a mission to build a -city upon a hill- as an example of what could be done in a society committed to Gods laws. In the first century of settlement, however, the challenges that they encountered compromised aspects of their mission. Discuss these challenges and the Puritans' response to them.

Some of the first settlers who arrived in America in 1630 were Puritans, determined to make their new settlement "a city on a hill" as a symbol of how successful a society could be if it were committed to God's laws. However, the challenges they faced upon their arrival in the New World compromised aspects of this mission, and the Puritans…. [read more]


Real America? Interestingly Enough Book Review

… Sexual laxness is not simply relaxing one's morality, but it is replacing the idea of oneself with the "selling of the sexuality of the person," as opposed to the myriad of other factors that make up that person's ability to actualize. This gap, then, causes a sense of cognitive dissonance that, like a cancer from within, eats away at American society.

Chapter 6- In "Pundits, Social Scientists, and the Flaming Liberals," Gosine attacks those pundits who believe they have the answers to all of America's problems. Gosine does not discriminate as to conservative or liberal -- he is equally as critical of the far right of Rush Limbaugh as he is of the hyper-religious of Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. Equally of concern are those…. [read more]


America, States' Rights Term Paper

… This amendment still shapes our world today, in the form of different religious groups looking for either equal treatment, or of government excusing itself from a public area (like a courthouse or school), or of a group seeking an exception based on religious grounds (like students who take the SAT on a day other than Saturday).

Another way that the founding period effects our mindsets today is in the idea of a "self-made" man; that is, the idea that anyone who works hard enough will, in a free-market society like ours, succeed. This concept can be traced back to the colonial era, when the American colonies broke with the European tradition of feudalism, which gave wealth and/or power based on a person's family connections.

Revolutionary America Term Paper

… Revolutionary America

Describe Shay's Rebellion and the influence it had on the ratification of the Constitution

The Shay's Rebellion can be considered to be an important moment in the history of the young Confederation struggling to face up to the challenges of the post revolutionary war effects.

The main causes of the rebellion were in fact related to the issue of taxes and the historical background of the post revolutionary situation. More precisely, after the independence from Great Britain the colonies had to adapt to a different…. [read more]


Ellis Holds That America Term Paper

… In a transitional state, the head of the Army holds an immense degree of authority. Washington was the only prominent military leader to revere the principles beholden to the new Republic. Washington and his contemporaries were familiar with the tragic flaws of popular leaders that preceded them: Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon because he believed that he out-do a largely aristocratic and quarrelsome republican government by employing the decisiveness that he had exercised in battle. Oliver Cromwell was unwilling to reflect the interests of a parliament that failed to represent his interests and ultimately handed authority to his son. Although many of the founding fathers shaped America's nature, it can be said with definity that without Washington, America couldn't have existed.

Washington, on the other…. [read more]


Homelessness Among the Veteran Community Literature Review Chapter

… Furthermore, the physical and psychological injuries from the war reduce a veterans' employability. They end up being lacking employment hence financial instability. Veterans also face a number of barriers like lack of stable employment, being unable to budget and make ends meet, limited knowledge when it comes to finances, poor judgment when it comes to making decisions that involve finances and lack of material security. These mental factors exist independently away from mental health diagnosis.

Years Leading to Rev War Essay

… ¶ … Revolutionary War

The history of the United States can be considered to be the result of hundreds of years of struggles and torments which have set their mark on the culture and traditions of the American people. Given their wide experience in the area of democracy it is difficult to say what are the main factors and elements which contributed to the establishment of the American society in the top of the democratic world and have set it as the essence of democratic practices. However, it is fair to say that it is precisely this tradition that has proven the world the infallibility of democracy. Even so, there have been great struggles for the American people to find its way, path, and best…. [read more]


Enlightenment on American Culture and Political Life Essay

… ¶ … Enlightenment on American Culture and Political Life

The impact that the Enlightenment had on American culture is significant. In fact the American society that "evolved and is dominant today -- including the democratic ideals, capitalism and the scientific method -- all "derive from the Enlightenment ideals formulated in England" (Jandt, 2007, p. 184). The emphasis that Americans have on individual liberties and the dominant language in America and the structure of law were the result of the Enlightenment, Jandt explained (184). The author asserts that values related to democracy -- including separation of powers (executive, legislative and judicial) -- derived from the French philosopher Montesquieu, prominent in the French Enlightenment.

Professor Robert Morse Crunden -- with the University of Texas -- explained that…. [read more]

(Klooster, 2009, p.115) At the top of the hierarchy was the monarch's seat stated "universally seen as a benevolent ruler and the source of all justice, whose role it was to arbitrate disputes."

Women's History in 17th Century A-Level Coursework

… American Women's History

There were many differences between Native American Culture and British culture, especially in the gender roles assigned to women. For instance, Native American women of the Powhatan tribe controlled agricultural production. Providing food for the family was considered by the British to be a man's job, therefore, European women were not responsible for agricultural production. Another difference is in the way that the Native American and British women approached sexual relations. Because the Native American women were considered scantily dressed, with beads, paint, and tattoos, as well as the fact that they readily gave sexual favors to the British men, the British considered them to be promiscuous. On the other hand, British women did not engage in open sexual relations, and kept…. [read more]


American Revolution Impact on Colonial Society Research Paper

… American Revolution had far ranging effects not only in Colonial America but also throughout the rest of 18th Century society. These effects started slowly but eventually transcended nearly every aspect of life in America and spread to Europe.



The changes that occurred subsequent to the American Revolution began long before the actual conflict. Great Britain had established a fairly loose approach in regard to the day-to-day management of the American colonies and, as a result, the American colonists enjoyed far more liberties than most people throughout the world and their taxes were the lowest of any of Great Britain's other colonial holdings. Against, this background, however, protest and, eventually, revolution was fostered.

Anne Bradstreet and Edward Essay

… " (Cowell, Anne Bradstreet).

The daughter of an earl's estate manager, Anne Bradshaw had private tutors and access to the earl's library (Cowell). She immigrated to America with her family and married a man who eventually became the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, the precursor to the city of Boston (Cowell). Bradshaw's poetry was very much concerned with Puritan doctrine, but it was not pedantic. She seemed primarily to work toward clear expression of her experience, and the tensions that made up the fabric of her life: life in a frontier environment where she practiced "exact diligence in her place" and the pleasure she took in raising eight children and the poetry that drew her to steal time away from duties to write (Cowell).….

American Revolution the Colonial Forces Term Paper

… American Revolution

The Colonial forces were a rag-tag army combined with state militias, yet they were able to defeat the British armed forces, who were much better trained. However, the rebels were much more acquainted with the territory and also had the advantage of numbers, with most of the population in support as the colonists threw out the British officials and set up their own governments and controlling forces. The British were militarily superior, but this held them in good stead only on the seas, where they could use their superior naval capacity to capture and occupy coastal cities. Most of the population lived in the countryside further inland, and the British never managed to gain much ground in this area. Also, the British fought…. [read more]


Independent United States Shed Colonial Essay

… This form of democracy was a distinct departure from the form of monarchy which previously governed the United States when it was a series of colonies under British rule.

Economically, then, the United States was able to distance itself from its colonial history by founding a national banking institution, the Bank of the United States, in 1791 during the presidency of George Washington (who was president during the ratification of the Constitution in 1790). The founding of the national bank, which was initially championed by Alexander Hamilton, reinforced the notion of national solidarity by buttressing the conception of a strong central government -- which was of course diametrically opposed to the loose affiliation of colonies and even states that preceded the bank's inception. The fact…. [read more]

The millions of immigrants who have come to America over the past four hundred years have made America what it is today. The immigrants who have made America their home came to find new lives and livelihoods and their hard work benefited not only themselves and their families, but their new home called America. The fact that immigrants decided to make America their home is central to the United States' overall development, "involving a process fundamental to its pre-national origins, its Atlantic outpost to a world power, particularly in terms of its economic growth. Immigration has made the United States of America" (Diner 2008). This paper will take a look at some of the major turning points in…. [read more]
