Task 1: English Colonization and the Road to Revolution
Survey of United States History C121

A. Explain the reasons for English colonization by doing the following:
Discuss the political motivations for English imperialism.
Describe the social pressures that contributed to English colonization of North

When the New World was discovered, it was by somewhat of an accident. A few of
the European countries were trying to locate a route to China in hopes of benefitting from
the Ming Dynastys success as a major influence and powerhouse in the trade industry.
The Spaniards were the first to find Central and South America and the riches of gold
and silver that it possessed. Because of this success, those riches that were being sent
back to Spain enabled them to increase their armies and made them the richest country in
the world.

In the history of our World, possessing powerful armies typically indicates that you
also are a political giant. Seeing Spain rising to the top made England take notice and
they decided to travel across the Atlantic in hopes of either finding a route to China, or to
find natural resources that they could get rich off of themselves.

Because political power plays a major contributor to many other aspects of control,
the English deemed it necessary to get involved in this race for national imperialism and
sent many colonists to the New World to stake a claim for their country. It wasnt an
immediate success, but soon found that they could benefit greatly from growing and
exporting tobacco crops. This led to the expansion of the English rule across the globe
which eventually became the most expansive in the world.

B. Describe the economic systems (e.g., labor relationships, trade networks, major cash
crops), social characteristics (e.g., religious beliefs, family structures, cultural practices,
class systems), and political systems (e.g., types of representation, major governmental
bodies, significant political figures) of the following colonies using the attached English
