Each of the 13 original colonies had its own reasons for being established. Settlers coming over to North America needed to choose which colony best suited their needs.
Please answer BOTH of the following:
- Why did people choose to settle in certain colonies or regions? Think about Jamestown, Plymouth, Maryland, etc. Consider religious, cultural, and economic reasons.
