The Southern Colony's Economy
The Southern colonies have good soil for farming and growing stuff to make money. Growing seasons are longer unlike the New England colonies. People can also chop trees down and make ships! Tobacco was also a successful crop in the South. Here are some of the industries in the south, shipbuilding, indigo plantations, wheat farms, and shops.
