The Cost of Expansion – 29 Pages 

Explain how and why slavery developed in the American colonies. Why couldn’t colonists use indentured servants as they had in the past? How would you describe the differences between slaves and indentured servants? Class, so how would you describe the differences between slaves and indentured servants? Why did colonists choose to use slaves as opposed to indentured servants?…

In what ways did American colonial society become more English in the first part of the eighteenth century?

“Some historians think those first blacks in Virginia were considered as servants, like the white indentured servants brought from Europe. But the strong probability is that, even if they were listed as “servants” (a more familiar category to the English), they were viewed as being different from white servants, were treated differently, and in fact were slaves. In any case, slavery developed quickly into a regular institution, into the normal labor relation of blacks to whites in the New World. With it developed that special racial feeling—whether hatred, or contempt, or pity, or patronization—that accompanied the inferior position of blacks in America for the next 350 years —that combination of inferior status and derogatory thought we call racism.”

Any thoughts about Zinn’s account of slavery? How did slavery correspond to the development of industrial capitalism?

The colonies of New England, the Mid –Atlantic and the Upper and Lower South developed their own forms of culture, conduct and commerce. Given the choice, where would you have preferred to live?  In terms of culture, conduct and commerce, how were these colonies alike? How were they different?…

How did the religious ideals of New England society shape its early history?

I’d like to recommend a fabulous book on this topic: Richard White’s The Middle Ground: Indians, Empires, and Republics in the Great Lakes Region, 1650-1815. In this book White explains the complexity of society in the region of the Great Lakes, and how native cultures interacted with European cultures.
