1 NEW ENGLAND, Puritans, Pilgrims, and the Mayflower Compact

2 Colonial Timeline Part 1

3 Colonial Timeline Part 2

4 New England #1 WHAT WAS JAMESTOWN, WHY WAS IT SET UP, AND WHY WAS IT EVENTUALLY SUCESSFUL, make sure you talk about land and voting. Jamestown was the first successful ENGLISH colony in America. The harvesting of tobacco eventually made it successful. “Brown Gold” instead of real gold The Headwright System gave 50 acres to every person who could make it over. Land was a premium in Europe and lifted their status in society, allowed them to vote, and gave them other privileges. Landowners in Virginia were granted the same rights, and even set up their own representing legislature called the House of Burgesses to represent white landowning males. First example of a representative government in America. Sets an example which we still use today!

5 Separatists vs. Puritans

6 Separatists (Puritan Calvinists)
Separatist Beliefs: Puritans who believed only “visible saints” [those who could demonstrate in front of their fellow Puritans their elect status] should be admitted to church membership. Because the Church of England enrolled all the king’s subjects, Separatists felt they had to share churches with the “damned.” Therefore, they believed in a total break from the Church of England.

7 Puritanism Calvinism  Institutes of the Christian Religion
Predestination. Good works could not save those predestined for hell. No one could be certain of their spiritual status. Gnawing doubts led to constantly seeking signs of “conversion.” Puritans: (LIVE LIFE PURILY ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE!) Want to totally reform [purify] the Church of England. Grew impatient with the slow process of Protestant Reformation back in England.

8 New England #2 Describe why many people were upset with the New Church of England, and what the difference was between Puritans and Separatists? They believed it wasn’t different enough from the Catholic Church. Puritans believed in a pure form of a church and society purely according to the bible, where as Separatists believed that a new church should be separate from the Catholic Church altogether.

9 New England #3 What is a Pilgrim, were they Puritans or separatists, and why did they leave for America, and why did they sign the Mayflower Compact? Someone that travels for a religious journey They were separatists For religious freedom To set up rules that said they would govern themselves though DIRECT DEMOCRACY.

10 New England #4 Why did the Puritans settle the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and describe why their leader John Winthrop called New England a City on the Hill? To practice their PURE biblical religion and connect that religion to the government in the colony. He thought that they should be an example for all other communities around the world to follow. Get city on a hill up high so people can see and honor it. Do you think we are a city on the hill? Talk to the people around you and discuss what a city on the hill should look like.

11 The MA Bay Colony 1629  non-Separatists got a royal charter to form the MA Bay Co. Wanted to escape attacks by conservatives in the Church of England. They didn’t want to leave the Church, just its “impurities.” 1630  1,000 people set off in 11 well-stocked ships Established a colony with Boston as its hub. “Great Migration” of the 1630s Turmoil in England [leading to the English Civil War] sent about 70,000 Puritans to America. Not all Puritans  20,000 came to MA.

12 We shall be as a city on a hill..
John Winthrop Well-off attorney and manor lord in England. Became 1st governor of Massachusetts. Believed that he had a “calling” from God to lead there. Served as governor or deputy-governor for 19 years. We shall be as a city on a hill..

13 Characteristics of New England Settlements
Low mortality  average life expectancy was 70 years of age. Many extended families. Average 6 children per family. Average age at marriage: Women – 22 years old Men – 27 years old.

14 Patriarchy Authoritarian male father figures controlled each household. Patriarchal ministers and magistrates controlled church congregations and household patriarchs.

15 New England #5 In order to vote or just be a part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony what did you have to be, and what did many people call the colony? You had to be part of, and follow all the rules of, the Puritan Church. It is often called a Puritan Commonwealth, which means the Puritan’s ran the government and everything else. Very strict society. Harsh on anyone who didn’t follow the rules.

16 New England #6 Who was Roger Williams, why was he sent away from the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and what core American value did he believe about religion and government? He was separatist leader that was sent away from the Mass Bay Colony for not following Church Rules. He believed in the Separation of Church and State. He ended up starting the Colony of Rhode Island.

17 Puritan “Rebels” Young, popular minister in Salem.
Argued for a full break with the Anglican Church. Condemned MA Bay Charter. Did not give fair compensation to Indians. Denied authority of civil govt. to regulate religious behavior. 1635  found guilty of preaching newe & dangerous opinions and was exiled. Roger Williams

18 Rhode Island 1636  Roger Williams fled there.
MA Bay Puritans had wanted to exile him to England to prevent him from founding a competing colony. Remarkable political freedom in Providence, RI Universal manhood suffrage  later restricted by a property qualification. Opposed to special privilege of any kind  freedom of opportunity for all. RI becomes known as the “Sewer” because it is seen by the Puritans as a dumping ground for unbelievers and religious dissenters  More liberal than any other colony!

19 Puritan “Rebels” Intelligent, strong-willed, well-spoken woman.
Threatened patriarchal control. Antinomialism [direct revelation] Means “against the law.” Carried to logical extremes Puritan doctrine of predestination. Holy life was no sure sign of salvation. Truly saved didn’t need to obey the law of either God or man. Anne Hutchinson

20 Anne Hutchinson’s Trial
1638  she confounded the Puritan leaders for days. Eventually bragged that she had received her beliefs DIRECTLY from God. Direct revelation was even more serious than the heresy of antinomianism. WHY?? Puritan leaders banished her  she & her family traveled to RI and later to NY. She and all but one member of her family were killed in an Indian attack in Westchester County. John Winthrop saw God’s hand in this!

27 New England #7 What is the significance of the Mayflower Compact, and the House of Burgesses?

52 The Carolinas

53 The West Indies  Way Station to Mainland America
1670  a group of small English farmers from the West Indies arrived in Carolina. Were squeezed out by sugar barons. Brought a few black slaves and a model of the Barbados slave code with them. Names for King Charles II. The King granted Carolina to 8 supporters [Lord Proprietors]. They hoped to use Carolina to supply their plantations in Barbados with food and export wine, silk, and olive oil to Europe.

54 Settling the “Lower South”

55 Colonizing the Carolinas
Carolina developed close economic ties to the West Indies. Many Carolinian settlers were originally from the West Indies. They used local Savannah Indians to enslave other Indians [about 10,000] and send them to the West Indies [and some to New England]. 1707  Savannah Indians decided to migrate to PA. PA promised better relations with whites. Carolinians decided to “thin” the Savannahs before they could leave  bloody raids killed most of them by 1710.

Became the busiest port in the South. City with aristocratic feel. Religious toleration attracted diverse inhabitants.

57 American Long Grain Rice
