About this video

Ralph D. Anske begins the second day of this conference with a recap of how the first British colonies in the New World were established—in Virginia, New England, and Pennsylvania. He looks at the different types of settlers who came to each region, including their charters, religion, and principal economic activities. Anske also explores the impact of religious tolerance and intolerance in the early colonies, the arrival of ethnic groups that were not English, and the slave trade.
