The Founding Fathers: Colonial and Early National America (Day 1, Part I)

New Media  | 17 de noviembre de 2009  | Vistas: 20

Ralph D. Anske examines life in seventeenth-century colonial America, focusing on the earliest settlements in Virginia and New England. Anske describes the differences between the early settlers in Virginia and New England and their very different reasons for going to America. He compares and contrasts the two regions while exploring several issues that were integral to the early colonial experience, including royal charters, relations with Native Americans, trade with England, government, and religion. Anske also looks at the fundamental differences between the Spanish and English colonial experiences in the New World.
