Task OneA-During the mid-sixteenth century English sea dogs such as John Hawkins andSir Francis Drake began raiding Spanish cargo and discovering American goods andtreasures. The English, whom were incredibly envious of Spain and their Americanpossessions, sought war and ultimately defeated the Armada (a large Spanish invasionforce) off the English coast. English leaders began planting colonies in the WesternHemisphere to gain better access to trade goods while at the same time preventing anyenemies from dominating the Americas. In attempt to reproduce the success and power ofthe Spanish, Sir Walter Raleigh and his team set out to colonize North America with theapproval from Queen Elizabeth. This attempt to establish dominance over other Europeancolonies however, ultimately failed. (Norton, 2015)In 1606, after the failed first attempt to colonize North America, England onceagain attempted the mission, this time out of desperation. England’s population haddoubled due largely to the importation of American crops. The people of England werecompeting for food, clothes, and other goods which led to inflation. Increased populationled to an increase in poverty. Additionally, James I and Charles I began enforcingreligious conformity, which led to many people fleeing with the hopes of religiousfreedom in America. Migrating at this point meant a new life for the struggling people ofEngland. (Norton, 2015)
