The political, social and economic development plays a large part in the reason why the New England and Chesapeake regions developed so different. If you were to pay close attention to these regions, you’d be in awe to know that the people who settled these areas are all from England. The reasons for the development also played a large role in the difference. From the 17th century to the 18th century the Chesapeake and New England regions developed into two different regions.
The social development played a large role in the reason why the two regions are so different. After analyzing some of John Winthrop’s “A Model of Christian Charity” (Document A), and John Porter’s List of Emigrants destined for the New England region (Document B), you

    Secondly, political, social and religious diversities, all of which will be discussed respectively, contributed to the difference in development of New England and Chesapeake.

D) led to the freedom of electing governments and ability to avoid aristocratism,…

    The Chesapeake and New England regions harbored two different societies though each region had a large population that was of English decent this was due to many reasons the two societies settled in the Chesapeake and New England regions. For example the settlers in the New England region migrated to the Americas to escape the Church of England and to be their own church that would be based on their ideals. The settlers in the Chesapeake region were there on behalf of the Church of England as well to make money for themselves. The economy in both of the regions differed as well because of the difference in ideals. Moreover the New England region wanted equality between everyone no matter the stature of the family and that was largely due to their religion, whereas the settlers in the Chesapeake region where there to make money and it was based on your social class. Politics played a major role in the Chesapeake region because it was determined by how much money the settlers made. In the New England region politics was based on religion, which was determined by your role in the church and ultimately the society.…

    The colonies of New England and Chesapeake sprouted from a common origin and spoke the same tongue yet had little in common with each other. Despite geographic and demographic differences in the Chesapeake and New England colonies, the most influential factor in determining why each colony developed differently was each colony's motives. It was through this motivational difference that distinctly divided the New World into the North and South.…

    Although the two regions, New England and Chesapeake, had many differences they also shared some similarities like they both were established by people of English origin, and they wanted to expand into the new world. It is definitely safe to say that these regions were more different than similar in all aspects concerning economic, social, and political issues. Throughout 1607-1700 the Chesapeake society was in a more wealth expansion mindset and New England society was more focused on religious…

    There are many differences between New England and the Chesapeake. This was because there were a lot of culture differences between the two. Whether it was coming to america to search for gold like the chesapeake or escaping religious injustice like new England. The chesapeake’s hot and humid climate tended to drive people away so they came to New England for dry and mild weather. Farming was a huge part of the Chesapeake’s economy unlike the New England people who had a very diverse economy even though they did farm. Even though they both came from the same area they evolved into two different societies due to their motives for coming to America, the climate of the area, and how and what they farmed.…

    From prior knowledge as well as use of the documents, one could see the large differences in the two societies politically. Politics is a major importance in any type of community; it could easily make or break it entirely. New England’s politics came mostly from religion and the ways of God, as seen in Document D. Political voice in communities was determined by religion, as in the leaders were picked by people with high ability in religion. Leaders were also ruled by divine right, meaning that the rulers gained all their power from God himself. Also, as long as there were churchgoers, the poor man was equally powerful as the rich man politically, changing society, as they knew it. As you can see, New Englanders believed very strongly in religion causing major differences politically compared to the Chesapeake region. From Document G you could see that in the Chesapeake region, the people looked at everything very differently. The rich were much more powerful than the poor because the poor didn’t own the land to make political change and land equaled power in this region. Also, rebellion of the government could’ve occurred easily because of the large amounts of slaves and indentured servants. Due to these negative aspects, Chesapeake created their political society differently than New England due to precautions and the idea of the…

    The Jacksonian democracy was created during the period before the civil war in America. The Jackson democrats made an attempt to grant power to the lower classes while decreasing the influence of the rich and potent. The Jacksonian democrats viewed themselves as saviors of the common people and ruled by the means of a powerful executive branch who attempted to destroy aristocracy in America. In reality, they were typically very wealthy, they disregarded the capability of the federal government, and they desired equality only for the white man. The Jacksonian's view of themselves was arrogant because of their political views, their hostility towards minorities, and their economic policies.…

    The New England and Chesapeake regions were two of the major areas for colonization in the 17th century. From the early 1600's into the early 1700's, many English immigrants left their homeland to explore an uncharted territory. The two geographic regions, one nestled in the warm muggy weather of the South and the other in the harsh climate of the North, lead to various different experiences and obstacles for the settlers to face, and to different lifestyles in the colonies. Through economy, religious persecution, and geographic location, the colonies became distinctly different. But even through all of their differences, the colonies in both of these regions did have some key aspects in common; most importantly their desire to become successful. The differences and similarities between the colonies created the building blocks of the diverse country that we inhabit today.…
