Discussion 1 HIST 100
Compare and contrast life in the Spanish, French, Dutch, and English colonies,
differentiating between the Chesapeake Bay and New England colonies. Who were the
colonizers? What were their purposes in being there? How did they interact with their
environments and the native inhabitants of the lands on which they settled?
Hello Professor and Classmates,
When we look at the Spanish and French, they governed autocratic sovereigns whose rule was
absolute and served as servants to the Crown. The Dutch used trading posts scattered all over to
gain wealth via commercial goods such as fur and clothes. The English colonies were known for
their business ventures and later became what is known as for becoming, the thirteen colonials of
America. Their primary power source was business ventures and making money for their
sponsors and was strictly puritan. Thanks to tobacco sales, the Chesapeake colonies had a solid
economic power and followed no universal religion. The England colonies were considered
puritans due to their heavy reliance on fishing, shipbuilding, and farming.
The age of colonizers began around the 1500 when Europe discovered a sea route around
Africa's southern coast. They had three main motives for starting this venture: exploration, gold,
and god.
The interaction between colonizers and natives was complicated as colonizers attempted to have
a mutual relationship with natives. Still, as time passed, the colonizers tried to impose religion
and establish control over land and laws. This resulted in conflicts that divided and deteriorated
land, bringing diseases and eventually the first Indian war.
