Jamestown vs. Plymouth

...Jamestown and Plymouth were the first two successful English colonies in North America. Jamestown was established in 1607 and Plymouth in 1620. Jamestown and Plymouth had many similarities. For example they both had some sort of government in some way. Jamestown had the first legislative assembly among the Western Hemisphere in 1619. This would later be called the, “House of Burgesses.” This served as a good model for many law making bodies in the U.S. Plymouth had a similar government. Their government consisted of general court. They also had a Governor. The government made laws and also levied taxes. Another similarity between the two is neither of the colonies was funded by the royal family. Colonists at Jamestown and Plymouth suffered greatly in the beginning - the colonists at Jamestown weren't used to the hard labor they had to do and suffered from illness, while the colonists at Plymouth arrived later during the year and suffered from an extremely harsh winter. Plymouth and Jamestown also had many distinct differences. For example, they both had different reasons for settlement. The Plymouth colony was in search for religious freedom from England. Jamestown wanted to spread Christianity to the natives and expand English trade. Another difference in these two was their economic cultures. Jamestown experimented with many different things but their main crop was tobacco. Plymouth didn’t have much luck with farming. They took part of another era, trading. They......

Jamestown

...Nature, Character, Contrast and Comparison The nature, character, contrast and comparison between the colonies in Jamestown in Virginia, the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Plymouth in Massachusetts, and the establishment of Maryland were all short on supplies and each were mainly focused on surviving in the New World. All the colonies had their own separate goals and desires, but all were very different in the ways in which they set out to establish the needs and laws for their region. The one major factor in the organizing of Virginia is when they lost Captain John Smith and went through the period called the “Starving Time”, which was a horrible time for all. The colonies were all trying to get settled and organized as much as possible with their own challenges and circumstances in which they faced. Virginia settlers were struck with sickness and disease which encountered most of the people in Virginia. There were no laws and people in this region were struggling very badly, they started setting out to define new laws. They became very religion over time and established laws around their Christian faith and ideas. Massachusetts settlers like the Puritans’ led by John Winthrop were very organized and they had a great leader around them. They did not face the same issues that the other colonies had to face because they were very prepared and organized. The Province of Maryland focused on trade and commodities that could be obtained. They looked to trade those commodities to the......

Jamestown

...A Brief History of Jamestown The founding of Jamestown, America’s first permanent English colony, in Virginia in 1607 – 13 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth in Massachusetts – sparked a series of cultural encounters that helped shape the nation and the world. The government, language, customs, beliefs and aspirations of these early Virginians are all part of the United States’ heritage today. The colony was sponsored by the Virginia Company of London, a group of investors who hoped to profit from the venture. Chartered in 1606 by King James I, the company also supported English national goals of counterbalancing the expansion of other European nations abroad, seeking a northwest passage to the Orient, and converting the Virginia Indians to the Anglican religion. The Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery, carrying 105 passengers, one of whom died during the voyage, departed from England in December 1606 and reached the Virginia coast in late April 1607. The expedition was led by Captain Christopher Newport. On May 13, after two weeks of exploration, the ships arrived at a site on the James River selected for its deep water anchorage and good defensive position. The passengers came ashore the next day, and work began on the settlement. Initially, the colony was governed by a council of seven, with one member serving as president. Serious problems soon emerged in the small English outpost, which was located in the midst of a chiefdom of about 14,000...

Jamestown

...The Struggles of Jamestown On May 14, 1607 three ships sailed for the new colony known as Jamestown Virginia. The boats were packed with one hundred and four men and boys who left England on a cold December day. King James I had granted the Virginia Company its first charter which stated the right to establish colonies in Virginia. Any Englishmen that wanted to had the rights as colonists in the new settlement. The King had his eyes on Gold ore that had been found there by the Spanish and looked at this opportunity as an economic one for England. Little did they all know about the hardships that they would encounter in “the new world”. Life at Jamestown is the story of brave people with a fierce determination to survive which laid the foundation for our country today. The first mistake the colonists made was the location. The goal was to find a place on a river so the colonists could search for a northwest passage, and that would be a key defensive position in case of attacks from the Natives and Spanish. The Location of Jamestown was in a swampy area and was isolated from most game which needed more space to inhabit. Almost all game on the tiny peninsula was killed and hunted immediately which left the settlers with little to eat. Not only was the location bad for hunting but the low, surrounding land was marshy and filled with mosquitos which carried and led to several diseases. Along with little food, and disease filled bugs, the river that Jamestown was located by......

Jamestown: a Comparison of Events

...Jamestown, a Comparison of Accounts As I compare the account of the settling of Jamestown as written in Chapter three of the textbook to Jeffery L. Sheler’s account in the Smithsonian Magazine, I will show how they are alike and how they differ. Both are in agreement that the settlers suffered from diseases, drought, and starvation, as well as attacks from the Native Americans. When the settlers first landed, they were in awe of the garden paradise, the fresh streams, and the stately trees. However, soon, they were involved in their first Indian skirmish. This resulted in their going back to their ships and traveling down the James River to secure a safe sight. They landed on a marshy peninsula which they thought would give them protection from further Indian attacks and also serve as a good place to watch for enemy ships. Also, it states in both of the article and the chapter that they worked at building a fortress and were eager to extract gold, timber, and other commodities for the Virginia Company. As a result of their unwise choice for the location of the first English settlement, and due to the tremendous heat and insect infestation, 46 of the colonist died. Other deaths were to follow from Indian attacks and disease. Chapter 3 portrays the settlers as high bred gentlemen who wanted to be leaders and not laborers. Many of the others were craftsmen and men who had always worked as gentlemen's servants. It also states that the settlers resorted to......

Jamestown and Plymouth: Difference

...Keerthana Yogaratnam  Stephanie Volage  10/22/15  Period 4  Jamestown and Plymouth: Differences  After the 1400’s two men by the names of John Smith, leader of the Jamestown  settlement, and William Bradford, the Governor of the Plymouth, decided to cross the Atlantic  Ocean in a ship in search of the "New World.” The Puritans and Jamestown settlers left England  in search of a new way of life. While the individuals in both settlements were English, they were  different in many important ways. They both had different climate conditions, religious  preferences, and had different  relationships with the Indians. To fully appreciate our Pilgrim  heritage, it is important to understand the differences between Plymouth and Jamestown.  One important point that suggests the differences between Jamestown and Plymouth  would be the climate. In the introduction to the Byrd journal account, the reader learns that “The  Southern climate was  kinder” (52).Jamestown was located around a swampy area along the  James River where there was a warmer climate and the soil was fertile; however, Plymouth  Colony was founded off the Massachusetts coast, with a cold climate and rocky soil. According  to the article, “The Southern Planters”  the Southerners had a softer and warmer weather, the  land was enormously fertile; however, the Northern climate was harsh” (52).  Springs and  summers were brief and winters were long and colder in the North. As stated in “The Southern  Pla......

Jamestown vs Hispaniola

...North America, along with the islands in the Caribbean; while England mainly focused on the North-Eastern region. Even though Hispaniola and Virginia were colonized by two very differing countries, their colonies developed in similar ways even with their different starts. The first settlement in the New World for England was founded in 1607 and named Jamestown, as tribute to the current King of England at the time. “The Virginia colony was founded and, at first, run by the Virginia Company of London”. Sir Walter Raleigh had paid for the expedition himself and therefore carried all the risks. But, the company decided to sell shares that were connected directly to the colony’s success, and thereby reliving him of some of the responsibility. A council in England appointed a secondary council that was to attend to and make the rules of the new colony; and would also appoint a president. Seeing that that was rather weak, the King sent a charter that gave the power to private investors from the Crown. Both Thomas Gates and Thomas West were made Governor in 1610 and 1611and put into place some very strict rules for the Colony. Jamestown was always under a change of management. The politics of the town changed greatly through the period of colonization. In 1619, the House of Burgesses met for the first time to”… to enact legislation for the colony, but its actions were subject to veto by the governor, council, and ultimately by the directors in London.” The House however, did not......

Comparision of Establishment of Saltcedar and Cottonwood

...of establishment of Cottonwood and Saltcedar Cottonwood (Populus spp.) is native to several temperate and boreal regions of North America where decrease in floodwaters exposes minerals in the soil surfaces. Cottonwoods are ecologically important to arid regions of western and southwestern North America because of the absence of other native tree species as their replacements (Rood and Mahoney, 1990; Cooper et al. 1999). Cottonwoods are prone to high invasion in riparian ecosystems as a result of large amount of hydrological disturbance in such areas (Tabacchi 1995). Cottonwood trees can be either male or female both of which contain flowers clustered in catkins (Braatne et al. 1996). Seeds produced by both flowers are reported to be greater than twenty five millions per tree annually (Schreiner 1974). Since the seed viability is very less lasting for 1-2 weeks under natural conditions and 2-3 days under wet conditions germination of seeds must occur in short period of time. Cottonwoods can also reproduce asexually through crown breakage and tree fall during wind storms and flooding events. The broken branches after being buried in sediment sprout and develop strong shoots. Species, climatic condition and drainage basin of the area determines whether the seedlings are established more from sexual reproduction or asexual propagules may outdo seedlings in growth and competition (Braatne et al. 1996). Cottonwood seedlings are poor competitors and their establishment......

Colonizers: Great Britain in Jamestown “Life and Death at Jamestwon”

... Colonizers: Great Britain in Jamestown “Life and Death at Jamestwon” INTRODUCTION “There it comes!” In May of 1607, there was the arrival of the first white settlers in Jamestown, Virginia. Virginia Company, a group of entrepreneurs from London, funded the explorers. Three ships namely Susan Constant, Godspeed, and the Discovery were used to transport the 104 men and women who left England to look for greener pastures in North America. Half of the settlers aboard the three ships were mostly “gentlemen” and some others from upper classes who do not know how to find a way to save their own lives. As soon as the colonists arrived at Jamestown On May 13, 1607, their expectations were immediately cut short since this group was met by rampant diseases, internal political struggle, as well as attacks from the native Indians. The initial instruction for the colonialist was to ensure that they have located a site that was not near the coasts to ensure an avoidance of Spanish warships, Virginia Council's primary concern. The relationship with Powhatan Indians were a major worry of the England Settlers. Because of the environmental issues at Jamestown, the English settlers had to establish their relations with native Powhatan Indians. Moreover, there were also some Indians who were hospitable to the first settlers, others were very hostile and would discharge them with arrows. After constructing rudimentary fort as well as witnessing Indian attacks, the white settlers realized that...

These services are very attractive to customers and have caused sales to increase, but management has observed that the profits are not moving at the same pace as the sales growth. Thus management decided to prepare a customer profitability analysis chart for a few customers in order to see if they can know which customers are the most profitable and which are the least. An evaluation of production, marketing, distribution and customer support was prepared by the executive team in order to know the reason for shrinking profits. In n annual Board of Directors......
