A) We outlined four empires in the New World, and how their interactions caused four continents to convulse. What did I mean by that? How did each empire approach colonization – and how did the locals react to the colonizers? Which empire was the most successful? Why?
B) Contrast the Chesapeake and New England settlement experiences – how in the heck did the Chesapeake folks survive? Did they deserve to survive? Why was the New England experience so much different than the Chesapeake experience?
C) How did the British policies toward the colonies change after the French and Indian War? Why did they change? Do you see any storm clouds on the horizon?
