British colonization

Post  fearlove on Thu Nov 10, 2011 9:12 pm

he strip of land along the eastern seacoast was settled primarily by English colonists in the 17th century, along with much smaller numbers of Dutch and Swedes. Colonial America was defined by a severe labor shortage that employed forms of unfree labor such as slavery and indentured servitude, and by a British policy of benign neglect (salutary neglect) that permitted the development of an American spirit distinct from that of its European founders.[10] Over half of all European immigrants to Colonial America arrived as indentured servants.[11]
