13Vasco Núñez de Balboa Arrived on the Isthmus of Panama, a narrow strip of land that joins North and South AmericaHe and his men were the first known Europeans to see the Pacific Ocean from the American continent.
14Francisco Vásquez de Coronado Coronado searched the present-day southwestern United States, unsuccessfully, for the fabled golden cities.He was the first European to explore the Grand Canyon.He did, however, succeed in getting a high school named after him though!
15Building a Spanish Empire The Spanish used the same methods of conquest to colonize the Americas that they used to drive the Muslims out of Spain.The conquistadors, or Spanish conquerors of the Americas, had three goals:to spread the Christian religion; (God)to gain wealth; (Gold)to gain fame. (Glory)Hernán Cortés conquered the empire of the Aztecs.Francisco Pizarro conquered the Incan empire.Both groups were aided by Native American allies, and by diseases that killed many natives.
16English Exploration5 guys (Cabot, Frobisher, Davis, Hudson, Drake) were trying to find the Northwest Passage, a fabled trade route to Asia. It wasn’t successful until 1903.
17Colonization and Jamestown There were several reasons why England decided it should establish a colony in the Americas:Privateers (aka pirates) wanted a base for attacks on Spain.They wanted to have supply stations for NW Passage.English merchants wanted new markets.The Americas would be a good place to send those who could not find housing or work in England.To establish an American Colony:English businessmen first had to get a charter, or certificate of permission, from the king.The charter allowed them to form a joint-stock company—a company funded and run by a group of investors who share the company’s profits and losses.
18JamestownThe company, the Virginia Company, sent 100 colonists to Virginia in They named their new village Jamestown, in honor of King James I. The colony nearly failed, due toconflict with Native Americansunrealistic expectations of settlers not used to doing hard workpoor location—near a swamp with disease-carrying mosquitoesstarvationpoor leadership
21Growing Tobacco The Promise of Land Despite criticism, tobacco was very successful and saved the Virginia colonists from failure.Large plantations growing tobacco needed a way to persuade laborers to settle in America.The headright system granted each person who came to the colony 50 acres of land.This policy helped attract English settlers to America.
22Growing TobaccoIndentured ServantsTobacco became a boom crop for England which required plantations growing tobacco to seek out labor.Many who wanted to sail to America could not afford the voyage.They became indentured servants, trading labor for the trip here.Between 100,000 and 150,000 men and women came as servants in the Mid- Atlantic.Many died young due to the hot climate and disease.
25Conflict With Native Americans Native Americans React to this attitudeIn 1622, Native Americans attacked Jamestown, intending to wipe out the English.The attempt failed, but 350 colonists (more than 25 percent of the population) and at least as many Native Americans were killed.Native Americans tried again in This attempt also failed.The English believed it best to “civilize” any culture they conquered.
28Coming to America-The Mayflower Coming across to America aboard the Mayflower was a treacherous journey, and an unpredictable one. Upon arrival in Massachusetts, they had nothing, so supplies were crucial.
29Supplies were VERY important… Colonists traveling to New England were provided with this Catalogue that listed what each person needed to bring to America.This list had a one years’ supply of all rations.

35Plimouth PlantationSet in 1627, this is what the Puritans would have built within 7 years of their arrival.
36Puritan LifeThe puritan believed in a strict moral conduct. This included the idea of predestination.The belief in predestination required that they live life to these moral standards because they were unaware of their predestined eternal destination (heaven/hell).
37City on a Hill This was a phrase coined by John Winthrop. The idea was that Puritans had a responsibility to be an example to the rest of the world.This included social reciprocity, obligation to the poor, following of God’s law.
41The Middle ColoniesSettlers of the Middle Colonies, the colonies immediately to the south of New England, had a great diversity (variety) of people.The Middle Colonies included New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.They are called the Middle Colonies because they are in the middle of the Atlantic Coast of North America.
