The thirteen colonies

The 13 colonies were divided on three places. New England, Middle and the south colonies.

In New England colonies the economy was based on fishing and trading, the religion the people had there was puritans and some people had other beliefs. There were slaves. The slaves were African American people. The climate on the north was with long winters, it had rocky floor and subsistence farming.

Talking about the middle, the economy was very good, they had ports and river systems, ship building, exported grain, furs and imported manufacturers. All the people had a good economy there. In the religion there were Quakers, Germans and scotch Irish, there were also African American. The climate was good for farming, they had really good land. They also had rivers and hills. In general it was a good climate.

Now the south, the economy was ideal for planting corps like indigo, rice and Tabaco. The religion was Catholicism. There were living people from France and from England. They needed slaves. The weather was warm and they had very rich soil.


Roanoke is an island on were a lot of colonies died. By the time a general was out from it, in England, and he returned, everyone on the island were disappeared.

There is one theory that tells everyone tried to get to the south but they got confused and started going north, they started dying because of starvation and cold and for being thirsty.

This theory is based on some rocks the people left behind, they left them in a weird order but they have a path.
