American History
Recreating the "old" into the "new world"
1st-->Financial gains--> believed they could find a passage way to Asia.
2nd--> Virgin land--> recreate European life
Mercantilism--> Wealth was measured in gold and silver. One nation
pinned against another, you had to sell more than you bought.
Sir Walter Raleigh--> Colonies made sense to develop as there were
markets to sell in.
16th century--> Monarchies financed explores.
Settlers depended on natives--> fur supply, exchange of goods, tools
and language. Europeans began to focus on producing goods that
appealed to natives such as guns, pots/pans.
Religion--> Many natives adapted Christianity into their own beliefs.
New Netherland "colony founded by dwic. They become immersed into the

fur trade. It was difficult because not many Dutch were willing to
leave, so they offered incentives such as land grants.
English--> these colonies would become the most powerful. They were
slow to join due to naval dominance in Spain and internal governmental
strife.
Many individuals were seeking religious freedoms. Once the English
defeated the Spanish armada, this weakened their grip on the Atlantic.
Walter Raleigh--> was authorized to explore south America. It was a
militaristic expedition. Off the coast of south Carolina they
establish a colony of criminals and unwanted people. These people were
not prepared, they assumed the natives would help them. They needed
food supplies and were picked up by a ship. There was little gain, he
sent a second expedition to Roanoke
This shows the early flaws. The settlement in Roanoke failed because
the group was ill prepared for survival, they couldnt co-exist with
natives. The goal here was quick settlement with speedy return.
They did try again in 1607 in Jamestown Virginia. In 1606 144 set out
to find precious metals, 40 of them. They couldnt co-exist with
natives or the climate. It was hot and swampy, the men were getting
malaria and there were no women to reproduce children.
