Life in the American Colonies : Daily Lifestyles of the Early Settlers, Jeanne Munn Bracken


3 Life in the American Colonies : Daily Lifestyles of the Early Settlers
Jeanne Munn Bracken
60 pages, 5.5 x 4, paperback / softcover, History Compass
There was, of course, no single "American Experience" in the colonies. Details depended on whether the colonist lived in the north or the south, in a town or on a farm, in 1660 or in 1770, slave or free. Through songs, journal entries, pictures, and historical writings, this book examines the daily lives of colonial men, women, and children over the century and a half, from the first European settlements to the beginnings of the American Revolution -- how they worked and how they played.

Life in the Southern Colonies : Jamestown, Williamsburg, St. Mary's City and Beyond, Jeanne Munn Bracken


4 Life in the Southern Colonies : Jamestown, Williamsburg, St. Mary's City and Beyond
Jeanne Munn Bracken
64 pages, 5.5 x 4, paperback / softcover, History Compass
Although students of history tend to look at the original thirteen colonies together, the Southern colonies had many unique characteristics that varied greatly from their sister colonies in the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions. Even amongst the Southern colonies themselves, there were vast differences in the reasons they were founded, their political and social structure, and their economies. This book provides sources relating to life in the earliest Southern towns and colonies through selected documents of those who founded the colonies, those who helped them grow, and the indentured servants and slaves who were the labor force of the South.
