Compare the English colonists (so this means the people themselves) that migrated to the Chesapeake and New England. Identify and explain three ways that they were different from one another. (Make sure to stay focused on how the people that migrated were different from each other.)
If you were an English colonist, would you prefer to go to New England or the Chesapeake? Why? Give three well-developed reasons that explain why you would prefer that colonial region. Or select the colonial region that you would not like to go to and give three well-developed reasons that explain why you would not like to go to that colonial region.
