: Origins of Early Colonies
Origins of Early Colonies
Prepare: In Chapter 2, you will read that Jamestown, although remembered today as the foundation upon which English North America was established, came quite close to abandonment several times in its early history, and suffered extraordinarily high mortality rates for decades. By contrast, despite one bad winter at the onset, the New England colonies of Plymouth and Massachusetts quickly stabilized and flourished.
As you read Chapter 2, please also read these primary sources:
•Instructions by way of advice, for the intended voyage to Virginia
•A model of Christian charity
Reflect: As you read the assigned material, consider how motivations for colonization, types of colonists, relations with Native Americans, and social and political structures influence the anomalies that existed between Jamestown, the Chesapeake, and New England.
Write: What were the differences between the origins and early histories of Jamestown, the Chesapeake, and New England colonies?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references according to APA style, as outlined by the Ashford Writing Center.
