People and colonies

The New England Colonies The economy was small business, shipbuilding, fishing, and trade. The population increased because of having large families, and it was a healthy place to live. The meeting house served as a church also. It had rocky soil and did subsistence farming.
Olaudah Equiano He was an enslaved African who endured a long terrible trip. The slaves were packed so tightly that they did not have any personal space. People who were sick or died were thrown overboard. They were examined like animals at the auction.
The Middle Colonies They had fertile soil with a milder climate, in which they grew the cash crops wheat & corn. The industries were: carpentry, flour making, lumbering, mining, small scale manufacturing, and iron works. Cultural diversity was accepted.
The Southern Colonies They had rich soil and a warm climate, which produced the cash crops of: tobacco, corn, wheat, and rice. Their living was mostly from farming. Plantations were located on rivers for easy transportation of products. Slave codes started here.
