Objective AP College Board Topic #2: English settlement of New England, the Mid-Atlantic region, and the South From servitude to slavery in the Chesapeake region Religious diversity in the American colonies Resistance to colonial authority:
New England Puritanism emerged from the Protestant Reformation in England. Puritans followed the teachings of John Calvin and were strict on reading the Bible and listening to sermons. Many Puritans came for religious liberty and were governed by a system of “moral liberty.” Puritan work ethic stressed hard work as saving the soul
Plymouth Pilgrims came to Plymouth (Cape Cod) on the Mayflower. Signed the Mayflower Compact before going ashore. Squanto provided help to get the pilgrims through their first Thanksgiving. New England settlement would be very different than Chesapeake: more equal balance of power between men and women, longer life expectancy, more families, healthier climate.
Massachusetts Bay Colony Massachusetts Bay Company was chartered in 1629 to London merchants. Organized Mass. Into self-governing towns. Each town has Congregational church and school. (Harvard was started to educate ministers). Church membership was required to vote. Church and state were very connected.
Trials of Anne Hutchinson Hutchinson was a well-educated, articulate woman who charged that nearly all the ministers in Mass. Were guilty of faulty preaching. Placed on trial in 1637 for sedition and spoke of divine revelations while on trial. She and followers were banished from Mass. Mass. not practicing free religion: Quakers were hanged, for example.
Other Highlights … The Pequot War 1637. The Merchant Elite. The Half-Way Covenant. English Civil War. Crisis in Maryland Cromwell and the Empire.
DBQ Group Work In groups of 4 choose either the DBQ on the Salem Witch Trials or Puritanism. Copy down the prompt: 1. “What factors motivated the witchhunt of 1692 in colonial Salem, Massachusetts?” 2. “From the accompanying documents, analyze and evaluate the political, social, and economic contributions of the New England Puritans.” Divide up the documents within your group and take notes individually for 20- 30 minutes. Take those notes and try to boil them down into a few lines you would write about that particular document. Take turns sharing your findings and discussing how the documents might fit into a thesis statement answering the prompt for about 30 minutes. Write the essay individually for about 30 minutes.
