I'm taking a collage History class, and I am having some trouble understanding what my teacher is explaining. It is American History and the chapter is over the expansion of colonial British America. Oh and sorry about the question. I didn't have enough room to add the word "Does".
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
he New England and Chesapeake Bay regions differed clearly in many different ways. These differences included religion, economy, and population. The New England colonists were trying to find a more suitable land of opportunity where they could better their lives and use New England's religious freedom. They wanted to create a society where they could focus on their family and religion; whereas the Chesapeake Bay colonists were hoping to "strike it rich" in the New World with the various industries that this region offered. The New Englanders led "easy-going" lives tending to their families and farms. They had very little to worry about and were very happy and healthy; whereas the colonists of the Chesapeake Bay led harder lives, growing tobacco and living in an unhealthy atmosphere. It is now clear that these factors contributed to the contrasting societies of the Chesapeake Bay and New England colonies.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
