Nathan Hernandez September 30, 2019 Professor Roberts History 1301 Compare the English Colonies. As tensions rose between Spain, France, and England for the strongest nation, every nation started to make colonies in the Americas. England made its colony for monetary gain. The English colonies were the building block to America. In 1750, the initial settlement of America was complete. The North consisted of the New England colonies Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. The Middle colonies consisted of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. The South consisted of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. However, the North and the South were not the same. The colonies differed because of the ownership of slaves, the purpose of the crops and the type of production they had. Slaves had always been a part of the way the world worked. In early America, slaves served in a contact-based system and were called indentured servants. People with debt, people who committed crimes, people looking for a restart in life, and some second and third sons of landowners made up this group of indentured servants. Indentured servants were promised land after their contract was completed. This contract called the Headright system entitled fifty acres for every person who came to America. Some of these people who came had to get contracts with a loaner because of the lack of money. Loaners would hold on to the land for six to eight years until the Indentured fulfilled their contact. The Indentured servant would work on the land

    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.
