history on slavery:  history on slavery Indentured Servants Indentured servants became the first means to meet this need for labor. In return for free passage to Virginia, a laborer worked for four to five years in the fields before being granted freedom. The Crown rewarded planters with 50 acres of land for every inhabitant they brought to the New World. Naturally, the colony began to expand. That expansion was soon challenged by the Native American confederacy formed and named after Powhatan Slide2:  Southern Colonies Maryland Virginia North Carolina South Carolina Georgia Slide3:  Chesapeake Colonies Maryland Virginia Still part of the Southern Colonies s.colonies:  s.colonies Southern Colonies Indentured servants slavery to work the large plantations rice, tobacco and cotton fertile soil cities: Charleston, Savannah & Baltimore Maryland Virginia North Carolina South Carolina Georgia Slide6:  Colony/Date Person Responsible Why Founded Governed/Owner Slide7:  Population of Chesapeake Colonies: 1610-1750 Slide8:  George Calvert, Lord Baltimore Slide9:  Colonization of Maryland Restoration Colonies:  Restoration Colonies Restoration refers to the restoration to power of an English monarch, Charles II, in 1660 following a brief period of Puritan rule under Oliver Cromwell Carolinas, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware The Carolinas:  The Carolinas As a reward for helping him gain the throne, Charles II granted a huge tract of land between VA and Spanish Florida to 8 nobles in 1663 The original proprietorship was broken into 2 royal colonies in 1729 Settling South Carolina:  Settling South Carolina Charles town was formed in 1670 by a few colonists from England and some planters from the island of Barbados Initially, the economy was based on trading furs and providing food for the West Indies By the middle of the 18th century, large rice-growing plantations worked by African slaves created an economy and culture that resembled the West Indies Slide13:  Although Carolina was geographically closer to the Chesapeake colonies, it was culturally closer to the West Indies in the seventeenth century since its early settlers—both blacks and whites—came from Barbados. South Carolina retained close ties to the West Indies for more than a century, long after many of its subsequent settlers came from England, Ireland, France, and elsewhere. Democratic North Carolina:  Democratic North Carolina Farmers from VA and New England established small, self-sufficient tobacco farms Region had few good harbors and poor transportation so there were fewer large plantations and less reliance on slavery By the 18th century, the colony earned a reputation for democratic views and autonomy from British control Georgia – The Last Colony:  Georgia – The Last Colony A proprietary colony and the only colony to receive direct financial support from the home government in London Set up for 2 reasons Defensive buffer Rid England’s overcrowded jails of debtors Special Regulations Absolute ban on drinking rum Prohibition of slavery Colony did not thrive because of the constant threat of Spanish attack Taken over by the British government in 1752 when Oglethorpe and his group gave up Bans on slavery and rum dropped Colony grew slowly by adopting the plantation system of South Carolina
