David Willmore AP US - Period 05 25 September 2010 Society and Culture in Provincial America Brinkley Chapter Three Chapter Summary As the settlement of English colonies in North America grew and economic success began to take hold, it became evident that the colonists were beginning to develop characteristics that were distinctly “American” though marked by regional differences. Although still transplanted English subjects and still greatly influenced by European ideas and institutions, colonists were also influenced by their specific labor needs, the development of cities, the trans-Atlantic trade, and the changing patterns of immigration. Provincial America exhibited modifications to English medical care, family structure, and technology. American religious thought, education and intellectualism, and scientific pursuits also developed with and apart from European concepts. And within North America one sees a continuation of the social and economic differences that defined the northern and southern colonies. Although differences in geography, economy, and population gave each colony its own particular character and problems, there remained many common concerns—not the least of which was how to deal with or avoid dealing with British mercantile restrictions. In sum, between 1700 and 1750, Britain’s American colonies began to show signs of becoming less English and more American with each passing year. It is the larger, soon to be ominous, differences between the colonies and England that this chapter seeks to explore. Points for Discussion
