"Well this is not going to be part of our story for today. A continues with the general general trend that there was never any one single cash crop in New England but rather numerous things that will come into play having so much diversity. In the market meant that the new England colonies were more insulated from economic downturns and that ultimately they would not have the absolute reliance on a small number of things like we're going to see in Virginia Jinya as with the economy. We see that defense is something that is ultimately going to become a regional in nature as opposed to strictly limited to any single colony. The the defense of the colony would really become paramount importance following the quote war as for the first time the threat of local Indian tribes really hit home. Dangers of the date of crabs was not a secret before that of course everybody was acutely aware of the sixteen twenty two massacre in Jamestown and it is something that was always on on the mind of the colonists however as we've discussed before in New England there wasn't really a powered and or an open Shinkin out. There have been some early skirmishes impressions that we he talked about previously but there was never anything on par with what we saw in Jamestown. Even the events that led to the quote war look dubious at best as the coloniser New England appeared to be looking for a fight despite in overwhelming. If not troubling victory in the war new Englanders realized the importance of having something in place to defend the security of the colonies what emerges from this is the New England confederation. The New England Confederation was formed in sixteen forty three and was made up of Massachusetts Plymouth. Limited new haven and Connecticut as we discussed last week Rhode Island was not invited to the party. The New England Confederation does a couple things but before we go into those things I want to get out there and dispel any thought that there was any kind of centralized government here. So don't start thinking of this as a confederation of states or anything like that. It just wasn't the New England. Confederation was at best a week alliance in function. All it really did was provide a handful of solutions for inter colonial law relations and dispute resolutions as they came up. The confederation also did provide a framework for the colonies to have a the defensive alliance. Things really don't progress much further than that. However the New England Confederation will become important during the first anglo-dutch war in the sixteen fifties? He's despite Massachusetts declining to participate. And that it will become a very major part of King Philip's war which we are going to discuss in much much more depth next season for now I simply wanted to introduce that. There was a basic plan for the mutual defense of the colonies. And let you know that this was a thing next next season we will get to see how if functions in reality we have spent the last fifteen episodes in New England and now before we move on. I'd like to take the rest of today to look at some of the overarching themes and differences between Massachusetts and the other colony. We talked in depth about Virginia. The differences between the two colonies knees is immediately apparent by looking at the reasoning behind their establishment. Jamestown was founded. Because people wanted to make money there was flowery language to make make themselves feel better that they were going over to introduce the native populations to Christianity however the truth will always be the primary motivator was financial. Everybody knew that the Spanish were making a killing down. What would become Mexico? Those coming to Jamestown were looking for their fortune. The founding of new kingland could not be any different instead of a colony founded on the sole idea of making money. New England became a refuge. For those being religiously persecuted in England I I the pilgrims who had found themselves on the wrong side of the crown and later the much larger persecution of puritans in England leading to the great migration as those heading to New England were. We're trying to escape from the religious tension at home. Their goal was to form a more perfect place to practice their faith in the words of John Winthrop they wanted to create a city city on the hill. They wanted a place that all the other puritans could look at and be amazed at their purity. This however was always going going to be a totally impossible goal and is something that was doomed to fail before it even got started. Part of the problem is that there was just never one kind of puritan new New England we have beaten the separatists versus internal reform. Difference to death at this point. And I don't plan on rehashing it all again here. However this is just one of the many differences that existed amongst the different groups Massachusetts is the center of the New England Universe and would remain noticeably intolerant throughout the sixteenth thirties ladies and forties? This is something that would lead to further fracturing of the colony by the time we rolling to the sixty and forties we have gone from two colonies Plymouth Massachusetts Bay colony and have expanded out to include Connecticut. New Haven New Hampshire Rhode Island. These differences between the groups was going to make it impossible for for New England to ever become that city on the hill that winthrop Fultz so hard to establish England. Didn't look across. The Atlantic and marvel at the Utopian appeared in land on the other side in fact the puritans back in England hardly notice what was going on across the Atlantic. They were distracted by their own concerns. which was was not running off to create some puritan haven but was rather turning England itself into that period and homeland it can be argued that the English civil war effectively typically remove the need for New England? Altogether after all persecution in England was now theoretically a thing of the past. Both William Watt and Charles himself had been removed from power and then subsequently executed. England was in the hands of parliament which was by the sixty thirties. A very puritan body Oliver Cromwell. I'm all who was well on his way to becoming the Lord protectorate a term that he used instead of the suddenly out of vote. King was himself a puritan. We have seen the intangible effects of this as well in the colonies after the sixteen forties the immigration rate from England to New England slows. Down dramatically in this way Massachusetts and New England as a whole is going to fall short of that goal becoming a city on the hill however despite not accomplishing this in New England is going to become impactful in other ways that in the sixteen forties ladies are totally lost on everybody both in New England and England itself. I didn't touch on it much at the time but one of the most critical things that I see coming out of New England at this time. Was it educated population way back in episode one point four. When we talked about religion I had spent some time talking about how for Protestants? It's it was the Bible. Not The clergy that stood at the center of the world. Are Calvinism Puritans who were certainly in agreement that the Bible should be at the very core of the religious practices recognize that it was not enough for somebody to read the Bible to them but rather than they themselves needed to be able to read the Bible what emerges is therefore is a highly literate. Society Literacy requires education which is something that would become a central part of life in New England by the sixteen forty s there there were basic requirements in place that ensured parents made sure that their children could read and write grammar. Schools would appear become part of life for children in New England. Now at at this point the concert is being able to read the Bible however in the years decades and centuries to follow that dedication to educated population is gonNA have other effects. Perfect as well knowing that such a wide portion of the population could read and write. Is it any surprise that during the seventeen sixty s it is going to be New England. That descent begins begins to form towards the crown. When political pamphlets begin to proliferate you ended up with an educated literate population to receive those pamphlets to be fair there there are a lot more reasons? Why New England is going to become the epicenter political disatisfaction and eventually rebellion during the seventeenth sixties and Seventies? We are of course going to be addressing all of those issues as they come our way however very early on we see movements any direction that make this possible specifically typically with that high literacy rate ultimately the first twenty years in New England or thirty years. If you're in Plymouth can be defined by a handful of key characteristics characteristics. Well they did not necessarily become the city on the hill they did become self sufficient in a very short period of time they develop built their own legal codes and governments and while I remain very hesitant to say that they were doing anything. Outside of what was necessary. New England was operating more or less independently of England as we have discussed. This wasn't necessarily New England making early assertions of their independence from the crown but rather it was from the fact that England and was busy preparing for and fighting civil wars. They didn't have the time to mess around with a handful of colonies. Half a world away for people like winthrop Williams Hutchinson and Bradford. This allowed them the opportunity to put themselves into leadership roles and make society in the way they deemed fit. Well there is no talk of separation and we need to be careful believing that the colonies were producing constitutions the colonies were forging their own path. Breath it is also inputted understand that this is going to sit up conditions that are going to have very long term impacts for New England and for the future feature United States at large. Well there was no talk of separation in the sixteen forty s at all. Nobody was wanting more control by England. Would they were plenty happy doing their own thing and running their own government without having to worry about interference from the home islands. The relative independence that New England is afforded adhere. The very beginning of their existence is something that they are going to not only value but they are going to come to view it as a basic right through out the next few seasons and especially next season we are going to see time and time again. What happens when England makes attempts to regain some of that control over New England and spoiler oiler alert? It generally is not going to be something that ends well. Everybody was very happy being left alone and with that I'm going to give the new Englanders. Their wish and leave them alone. We spent fifteen weeks now exploring New England and I'm finally feeling ready to sit there a story aside momentarily at least a move forward however for those of you who just love the history of New England. We are going to be back often over the next. Several seasons as New England England is going to play such a pivotal role in our story. Next time we are going to take some time and explore the introduction of slavery into the Cool Neil United States dates few things are going to affect and shape the United States more than slavery and by the time that sixteen fifty rolls around it is slowly growing in the colonies. This as always. I want to thank you all for listening. We will be back here next time to discuss the introduction of slavery for my listeners in the United States I hope you all have a wonderful things giving and for everybody else no matter where you are. I hope you have a wonderful two weeks.

"The problem was that for those early years in Rhode Island and what was a truly interesting experiment was largely hampered by internal divisions however things were beginning to stabilise 'em by the end of the sixteen forty s all but warwick the cat come into the fold and we're essentially operating as a single colony. It is impossible to say that Rhode Island was not a religious community. This is sixty forty s new England and and seriously guys everybody is really religiously inclined the difference in Rhode Island. However are those things that we spent so long discussing in the episode on Roger Williams uh-huh in this regard we do not see a system of government? Take place that place at the church in any special role concepts like separation of church and State Ju Flourish in Rhode Island. Throughout the documents we see getting producing the time Rhode Island does base their system on the idea of popular sovereignty. People vote without the strings that we see attached Ellsworth route New England however it is impossible to overlook the fact that whatever talking about the early colonial period Rhode Island is so often ignored. The center of the new the England Universe is and will remain Massachusetts. Connecticut and Plymouth are hanging on around the edges of that orbit however they are still a million miles away from Rhode Island in every aspect the other colonies in New England looked at Rhode Island with a mixture of distrust and outright contempt is sixteen forty three. When the New England Confederation nation was formed for the Common Defense of the New England colonies those he joined Massachusetts Plymouth? Connecticut and New Haven. It is not an accident. That Rhode Island was snubbed upped. All of this came together to make sure that Rhode Island's population remained much lower than the other colonies. I've seen various estimates on the population. However over nearly all agree that in sixteen fifty the population of Rhode Island was well under one thousand people for comparison most mincy placed the population of Massachusetts at around fifteen eighteen thousand and Connecticut? Around five thousand. No matter how you turn it Rhode Island is a relatively small blip on the radar. which is something? I'm sure the other New England England colonies were plenty happy with the other colonies in New England are always pretty steadfast against anything that is going to disrupt their carefully. Choreographed social order. Everything about Rhode Island threatened that order for the rest of New England Rhode Island was something that they wanted to make sure stayed small and uninfluential for the most this part this is going to actually work. The reason why there isn't more written on the early colonial history of Rhode Island despite the fact that they are working on some truly revolutionary ideas is probably only because they made up such a small part of the New England world the population remains low and the ideas being expressed within are largely contained within that colony. This is going to limit the influence of Rhode Island throughout the period that we have been discussing and will continue to limit that influence as we move forward we have spent the last fourteen thirteen episodes in the world of New England. Next time we are want to wrap up our series on New England. I've got a few other topics that I would like to briefly cover and then and we are going to spend the rest of the episode looking at the region overall as we approach sixteen fifty. When next week is wrapped up we will be able to put New England behind us and we will be marching quickly glee towards the end of our first season of this podcast? So come back here in two weeks and we will conclude our story on the founding of the New England colonies.

"Kids to read and then some years later free public education was added to the code. This follows with the import does that period in societies place. I'm being able to personally read the Bible Years in the future. That high literacy rate is going to mean that these citizens of Massachusetts are able to read the political go pamphlets that are being circulated servants within the colony were also given basic protections against abusive behavior. Likewise there was a section saying that indentured ventured servants shelby given some kind of granted property should they successfully complete their period of indenture. It is interesting to look at the rights granted by the body of celebrities. We see so many of the things that would later appear in the United States. Bill of rights appear for the first time in this document concepts such as protection against cruel and unusual behavior due process jury. Trials prohibitions against uncompensated. Takings all are going to make their appearance. These are things that are going to eventually find themselves themselves front and center in those rights that the founders wanted to preserve in a federal constitution well in so many ways the body of liberties can seem like such a progressive document. humint there are other places where it feels radically different. None more so than just how closely religion is tied to the government at the end of the body of liberties. There is a long section Selena. The various reasons that you can use capital punishment and each one of their biblical justifications. So because you asked what offenses can you receive the death penalty before well. You can be put to death for worshiping any God other than the Christian. God being a witch which you know that's going to become very important in the sixteen ninety s blasphemy premeditated murder committee murder as a crime of passion committing murder with the use of poison bestiality for both the person and the animal in vault doc homosexuality stealing a slave giving false witness that results in the death of another or if anybody conspires to or actually does commit treason season against the colony. I mentioned this because I think it really gets to the point better than me just saying it how incredibly steeped in religion the Bay colony was in sixteen sixteen forty one by any modern standard and frankly by the standards one hundred fifty years later. This is a harsh form of government. That absolutely nobody would mistake. Gordon Lighting System of government despite that however it is at the same time unfair to completely dismiss the significance of the Massachusetts body of liberties portions of the legal code are going to survive the test of time until their inclusion in the bill of rights for those laws you can see the long legal history in America of these rights prior to the bill of writes. This helps explain why these rights were by the time. Seventeen ninety one rolls around seen as being so fundamental to the freedoms granted in the United States throughout throughout the remainder of the sixteen forty S. There will continue to be new. Laws added modifications made in other minor changes added to the body liberties the story of Politics Massachusetts throughout throughout the sixteen forty s was moving the colonies. You something that more resembled a stable system of government by codifying the law. It at least in theory meant that there would be. They're an equitable administration of the loss. Throughout the colony it also served as a check on the threat of arbitrary government that the colonists were so deeply concerned with the fear of arbitrary government would in fact never be completely mollified. It is a beast that will continue to rise up every so often until it literally leads to war in seventeen seventy five however the body of liberties for the moment creates a more predictable government. which was intern less likely to drift towards tyranny meanwhile throughout the decade through will be increasing efforts to decentralize the government of the Bay colony is sixteen forty to the general court would separate into a bicameral institution with an upper and lower house under the new structure? The lower house would be voted on by the freemen of the colony. They would then proceed to the upper house of assistance. The lower house would meet less regularly whereas the upper house of the assistance would remain in permanent session to assist the governor. If you're wondering what what the English back in London thought of all this. The answer is that they probably didn't think about it much at all for the Communists in Massachusetts and indie throat. New England. Fortuitous timing help with them basically build their own government without much interference from the mother country by the time. The body of liberties was passed parliament. Anqing Charles the first or getting ready to kick off off the first English civil war. Nobody was terribly concerned with what a bunch of minor colonies off in the middle of nowhere. We're doing when there was such pressing problems at home. I want to wrap up today by taking a very quick peek in at Plymouth and seeing what is going on there politically when we last left off Plymouth was a colony that was completely dominated donated by the personality. William Bradford Bradford. If you'll recall is to plymouth what John winthrop is to Massachusetts Great. Those first decades in Plymouth it is is virtually impossible to separate plymouth. Politics from Bradford Bradford's control over the colony was still in place throughout the sixteenth thirties and forties so in this regard he is still the giant on on the ground as a quick reminder plymouth was formed it was done so without a proper charter instead. The settlers on the mayflower drafted the mayflower compact and have been operating with that as the foundation of their government and as the proof of legitimacy however with the Massachusetts Bay colony. Now entering into the equation. Plymouth decided that it may well. It'll be time to make things a little bit more official. The Plymouth colonists approached the council for New England in search of a more proper land. Grant the Council for New England was in English company. That did go ahead and make that grant in sixteen thirty. This shouldn't be seen as something akin to actual charter. However but rather was is a more official acknowledgement that the colony did in fact have a right to exist? It did further establish borders for the Plymouth Colony. which would help to prevent future at your border? Disputes Between Plymouth and Massachusetts eight more proper constitution and legal system was implemented in sixteen thirty six as opposed to the previously used mayflower compact compact what emerges from this new constitution legal code is a system of government that looks a whole lot like this system in place over Massachusetts. The new government provided for governor as well as a court to be made up of seven assistance like in Massachusetts the freemen of the colony had the right to vote for the assistance and the governor also like in Massachusetts. She sits in order to having those. Those Freeman were required to be member of the church. Logistics would eventually prove that Plymouth like Massachusetts had to adopt a more representative tentative system as the Plymouth colony grill more and more towns sprung up further and further away from the original settlement. Just like what occurred. In the bay colony this necessitated that each of these east Halston two representatives to attend the General Court meetings. This helped ensure that the surrounding towns had some form of representation when the distance between the towns and the original settlement grew you too large to make attending the general court widely accessible through the use of representatives it was much easier to ensure the towns on the edges of the colony received a fair voicing. Government don't Plymouth would have contact involvement with the other con- around New England as we have already seen they were a participant in the war. Though they didn't really do much in the way of any actual fighting hiding we will see in a future episode that they would also become a member of the New England Confederation in Sixteen Forty Three Plymouth. Well not totally isolated or anything like that was happy enough. Not being the center of the New England world. If John winthrop was interested in trading Massachusetts into some kind of shining beacon appeared in ways that pilgrims and Plymouth. I just wanted to be left alone to do their own thing. For the most part at least up until King Philip's war which we will discuss next season they got their wish. William Bradford himself is going to continue to dominate their political system. Right up until his death in sixteen fifty seven as a flannel postscript on the situation regarding the legitimacy of Plymouth I want to make a few points which which may seem minor right now but will be big deal in the future. The language that Plymouth receives is absolutely not a charter. In Fact Plymouth is never going to get an official royal charter charter from King. This is in contrast to the other New England colonies who by sixteen eighty six had charters directly from England when we reached the dominion of New England. At the end of the next season. This is going to be an important distinction that will separate Plymouth from the other. New England colonies. The consequences of not having an official royal charter will ultimately approve catastrophic for the Plymouth Colony. Whoever that is all a story for next season okay? I think that she give you all a much better idea of what's been going on in Plymouth since the last time we saw them. Well the far more impactful events were happening over in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. These settlers down Plymouth would just keep doing their thing with as little intrusion Truyen as possible next time we are going to keep working through the political developments of these sixteen thirties and forties. Much like this week's episode that is going to see us spend most of our time in a single place team the Connecticut where we are going to examine the importance of the fundamental order of Connecticut. We will also take a brief amount amount of time to jump on over to Rhode Island and see what all of our favorite outcasts are up to so with that I will see you back here.
