Early colonial areas
Long before America officially became a country in 1776, this land, which
we are upon, was mearly a colonial settlement for British Immigrants who were
fleeing their country because of religious reasons. There were three different areas
in which the immigrants settled.
The first area was known as New England. It consisted of the present-day
states: Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
The people living there were called “Puritans”. They got

showed last 75 words of 394 total
events and business. They had a rural lifestyle. They
dealed mainly with tobacco but also planted Aristocracy. The Southern colonies
consisted of the present-day states: Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South
Carolina, and Georgia.
These three all came to the “New Land” in search for freedom from
the wrath of the British. And they most certainly found it. And that was just
the beginning of this great country which we call the United States of America.
