Colonial Regions: SOuthern Colonies Phillip H.

"Farming is the best, Southern Colonies!"


The Southern Colonies were made for growing tobacco, cotton, rice, corn, wheat, and fruit trees. They also had other jobs like lumbering, shipping, fishing, buying and selling slaves, plantations or tobacco plantations, and trading goods with the American Indians.


The Southern Colonies were very steamy, and humid summers. The Southern colonies had great soil, so they made Tobacco, Indigo, Cotton, and Rice. The bad part was that the climate encouraged mosquitoes. There were also swamps in the Southern Colonies.

The Reasons For founding in the Southern Colonies


The reason for founding Maryland is because people wanted a Catholic church. Soon people started to come and start a colony. People wanted to give this colony a name, so they named it Maryland because Mary was the mother of Jesus.


The reason for founding Georgia was because people wanted to live a happy live, but it didn't go well. First, the British Government wanted to keep Spanish troops from moving north from Florida. The colonists tried to make treaties with the American Indians to team up with the British troops. Second, some wealthy British men wanted to help poor people avoid going to debtors' prison. However, debtors could not sell the land that they were given. Soon, King George (named after Georgia) granted a charter to James Oglethorpe to start a colony near Carolina.

South Carolina

The reason for founding South Carolina was because a king named King Charles II sold land to 8 Lords Proprietors. People soon sailed across the far lands to this land. When people came over, they didn't have to find a place to park, they could dock there boats. Soon, people named the place Charles Towne (which was also called Charleston) who was named after King Charles II. Charleston became a place for culture, and trade.

These are things that people planted in the Southern Colonies

It’s over a mile above sea level here and I don’t think I saw another car for over an hour. This area gets pummeled by massive storms during the time of year I took this photo, which I hope captures this desolate landscape." • Tim Mossholder - "Salad Lovers’ Paradise" • Pixzolo Photography - "Food Serve" • Annie Spratt - "untitled image"
