Essay on Colonies

Uploaded by Admin on Jan 22, 1999

The New England and Southern Colonies were both settled largely by the English. By 1700, the regions had evolved into two distinct societies.

(John Winthrop, A Model of Christian Charity). The use of the word "together" and "community" indicates that the New England settlers were of a communal nature, they were less individualistic than the southern colonies.
