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.
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.

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"
