(p.9) Metacom- A Wampanoag and the second son of the sachem Massasoit. Became chief of his people in 1662. Also known asking Philip. (p.21) Smallpox- Killed the Native Americans because they were never exposed to it before, biggest killer of the Natives due to this. Europeans were immune to smallpox.

Massachusetts Bay Colony- Where the Puritans lived. Puritans- Englishmen who settled in New England. Puritans believed the Church of England was only partially reformed. (p.8) John Winthrop- Wealthy English Puritan lawyer. One of the leading figures in the founding of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Questions 1. 13 colonists were murdered by the Pequot’s in 1637. Puritans responded angrily. Violence amplified between the 2 groups. Puritans wanted revenge. 2. Religion played a major part in both the puritan and Pequot lifestyles. However, the difference in religion led the puritans to believe the Pequot’s were living savagely and the puritans judge them harshly so the puritan’s actions were justified by their religious bias.

3. I agree with Gillon. The Pequot was based on the puritans inability to accept new religion regardless of which groups started the war, the Pequot war started a chain reaction of between natives and English, one that eventually led to the American freedom, however a result of brutal murders of innocent children and women. 4. Other events with the same situation as colonial conflicts are slavery. Slavery created the inequality towards blacks nationwide, of which the racism and segregation are still a major problem today. Chapter 2: Shays’ Rebellion Vocab Anti-Federalists- Refers to a movement that opposed the creation of a stronger U.S. federal government and opposed the ratification of the constitution. Articles of Confederation- The original US constitution. Post-War depression- in western Massachusetts survival depended on the barter of goods and services- the economy was at an ultimate low post war due to the decrease in bartering. Democracy- system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state typically through elected representatives. Federalists- an advocate or supporter of federalism. “The Federalists”- collection of 85 articles or essays written my Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay promoting the ratification of the United States constitution.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
