Entry 1: Beginning of English America from 1607-1660
April 26th, in 1907, colonists from England arrived in three small ships and sailed out at
Cape Henry to Chesapeake bay. The first place which the colonists saw as an ideal was
almost sixty miles inland on the famous James river. It's in this area where they established
Jamestown as the capital of Virginia. As the three ships returned home, 104 settlers remained
behind. The main motives of these settlers were finding gold rather than establishing any
economic benefits to the locals. Jamestown was the first permanent residence and settlement
area for the English men in what is now the United States. The high interest in the
colonization of North America was spurred by religious and national rivalries and the overall
growth of a merchant class who were obsessed with investing in the overseer expansion.
Entry 2: Chapter 3: Creating Anglo-America, 1660-1750
In 1675 the forty-five new England towns were attacked by king Phillip. This attack
stimulated a counterattack in the following year; the counterattack led to the breaking of the
Indian's power. Commerce was the main foundation of the England empire rather than
territorial plunder. England tried to come up with different regulations on its economy to
facilitate national power and wealth. Carolina was founded as a barrier and obstructive to the
fast expansion of Spanish on the northern side of Florida. From the start, Carolina acted as a
slave colony as it was an offshoot of Barbados. Carolina came up with a fundamental
constitution that created a feudal society. The law also allowed elected assembly and

religious toleration. Pennsylvania acted as the last 17th-century colony, and William Penn
was placed as the proprietor.
Entry 3: slavery in history
The widespread of tobacco made the settlers to opt for other means, thus adopting slavery.
Slavery offered many advantages as compared to indentured servants. As per the 17th-
century concepts, f racism and race had not fully developed. Slavery in the northern parts had
taken a different role. Due to high death rates and high prices of the slave's bondage
developed at a slower pace in the new world. In the 1660s, the laws of Maryland and Virginia
explicitly referred to slavery. A Virginia law of 1662 stated that in a case where one parent is
free, the offspring status should follow that of a mother. According to the 1667 Virginia
house of burgesses, they affirmed that any religious conversion did not in any way lead to a
release of a slave from the bondage.
Entry 4: American revolution
American revolution started in Massachusetts at Concord and Lexington in 1775 and ended
in 1783 eight years later. The war was dominated by 13 British colonies who occupied North
America, who then won their freedom and later became what is now referred to as the united
states. The Boston Massacre took place in 1770, which was as a direct result of the
parliament being officially compelled by British store owners. In 1767 the Townshend acts
were introduced in 1767 and were created by Charles Townshend. The English parliament
later passed the Townshend Act. The laws were enacted to collect taxes from the imperialists
and American colonists by adding the import customs on products such as glass, paint, and
lead.
