    I love reading these books for info and inspiration for my own writing I had read a couple historical YA novels and wanted to know about that way of life so I checked this out at the library There was a graphic of the thirteen colonies New Hampshire Massachusetts Rhode Island Connecticut New York New Jersey Pennsylvania Delaware Maryland Virginia North Carolina South Carolina and Georgia It's cool to have your state be one of the original thirteen colonies Some of the first European colonists went to America because they were looking for adventure or had been sent by their kings or queens to claim land for their home countries and others wanted to worship God in their own way Settlers came from Spain England France Holland and Sweden The colonists were considered citizens of their home country and still obeyed that country's laws As new land became settled people continued to come esp from England The settlements became towns and ones were established further inland Farmers in the southern colonies became wealthy by growing tobacco cotton and sugar cane on plantations News of these great opportunities caused thousands of settlers to come for hope of a better life Most of the settlers were men but sometimes women sailed over to marry the men there Slavery started because plantation owners couldn't find enough workers to harvest their crops The image of the slave ship showing how tightly packed the slaves were was really powerful It was so crowded there was barely any space at allThe field slaves were the ones who worked with the crops from sunrise to sunset and only a 15 min break once a day They were punished by the overseer if they stopped working Some collapsed from the hard work in the heat The first black slaves were given their freedom after they had worked for some years Some of the colony's governments passed laws that took the rights from Africans that made them slaves for life prevented them from legally marrying keeping their families together owning property and earning freedom Some owners arranged for their slaves to be freed upon their deaths and a master's death was the only hope for a slave's freedom Those who ran away were severely punished The ones who revolted against their master were sometimes killed Some masters were kind and fair but some treated their slaves like animals Slaves were viewed as property so they weren't allowed to read or write People felt that the less the slaves knew the easier it was for them to stay a slave If they couldn't read they wouldn't get ideas of a free life Some learned to read and write in secret Slaves lived in cabins or huts in a row called slave quarters or slave row They slept on straw mattresses on the floor in poor and crowded condition which caused many to get sickA typical punishment for not following the rules or not working hard or trying to run away was 50 100 lashes Their hands and legs were sometimes put in shackles which didn't allow them to move Some of the first colonists lived in caves dug in hillsides or in mud huts or cabins in rough logs The early house usually had only 1 room There was a bench near the fire Some had a table chairs and a large chest for bedding and other cloth items They sat on barrels and slept on straw mattresses The fireplace was for warmth and cooking Some had chimneys but most had a hole in the roof for smoke to go out They soon built better homes but slaves' didn't improve They were like the ones in England out of cut boards with 2 stories winding stairways big stone chimneys and small windows Many had a parlor dining room several bedrooms outbuildings called dependencies including smokehouses servants' quarters and outdoor toilets called necessaries In the south the kitchen was in an outbuilding so the house didn't have smoke odor fire or heat in summer The wealthy were served their meals in the dining room The southern plantation owners had huge brick homes The wealthy had finely designed furniture tables chairs beds some four poster with curtains drawn to keep cold out and feather mattresses chests sofas clocks and mirrors Most colonists north and south were farmers They fed themselves by growing crops and raising livestock They built their own homes and made their clothing shoes and furniture As people came craftspeople opened shops and made shoes furniture barrels wagons and horseshoesThey had cows for milk chickens for eggs sheep for wool Merchants bought goods in are in Europe and sold them to colonists and sold products made in colonies There were also millers who ground grain into flour in gristmills Fisherman lumberjacks and shipbuilders Women who were unmarried supported themselves by working in shops or sewing for others Each town had a marketplace for merchants and farmers to sell their goods or services The harvest season in Autumn had many open 6 days a week Settlers from nearby farms left their homes before dawn their wagons full of fruits vegetables eggs meat and homemade products like baskets quilts and hats They had to get here early to get a good spot in square It was busy and noisy with public noticed and announcements and elections Lawyers and businessmen had booths where they offered advice and advertised services People could dance watch puppet shows cockfights or horse races and slave auctions They believed that bathing too much was unhealthy and took precious oils that protected from disease They only bathed a few times a year but they washed each day with washing bowls and pitchers of cold waterThey got a lot of cavities because they didn't brush and many were pulled out Some people put cork balls in their mound to fill the hollows in their cheeks from missing teeth Food was kept cool in cellars below ground but with outside entrance with two slanting doors not connected to house Everyone in town rushed to put out fire Ppl with buckets brought them They had a bucket brigade 2 rows from fire to pond river or well passed up the row in the wet lane and empty buckets down the other row in the dry laneNews was spread by town crier who walked the streets ringing a bell and shouted the news Didn't give details only short statementSome towns had law to enclose yard with fence to keep animal out of private yards Gates had a chain and heavy ball so when gate was opened weight would make it closeFamilies were big with children and sometimes aunts uncles and grandparents in one house Everyone worked hard Fathers and older sons hunted for meat They planted and harvested crops of worked at a trade The women worked in the house and garden They took care of children and made candles and soap They spun yarn with wheel and wove thread into cloth on loom Children were taught to work because laziness was a sin In town or on farm they got up early to sweep feed chickens milk cows water horses gather eggs pick berries or run errands Not many got to go to school Boys usually learned father's trade but if they didn't they could be apprenticed to cooper wheelwright or silversmith He could make barrels wagon wheels or silver objects in exchange for helping craftsman Could be as young as 9 and trained up to 7 yearsYoung girls learned knitting and sewing and then did samplers She sketched a pattern of short sentences or verses and embroidered with thread The younger slave children help their mom in the kitchen picking vegetables getting water from well churning butter and washing dishes Slaves sometimes rebelled by burning or spilling food into fire but they would get whipped After dinner they had free time where they could tell stories sing and play drums If they're lucky they'd get a week off for Christmas Sometimes they got boxes of clothes and sweet biscuits for the kids On New Years some slaves were sold There were few free schools but when a town had a school those who could afford it went 6 days a week There was 1 teacher and all students were in the same room Some studied quietly and some read aloud They learned to read write cipher and simple math problems They repeated lessons over and over to learn Misbehaving caused whippings A school usually had 2 books the bible and a primer with the alphabet spelling words and poems Kids had hornbooks which they learned letters and numbers in Some had copy books with paper bound together They wrote small to save paper They used feather quills and inkOnly boys went to high school and only a few went to universities in England or one of the 9 colleges in the colonies Most were started by churches for men to become ministers Kids didn't have much time for play but when they did they walked on stilts spun good rolled hoops bowled outside played quoits marbles cricket flew kites Blindman's Bluff sack races fished Game of Goose swing seesaw or talked Men wore breeches with buttons which went to below the knees with woolen stockings underneath Loose shirts sometimes with ruffles at neck and cuffs Waistcoats over shirts Boots or shoes Best suits and dresses were made of silk brocade and lace Men's coats had shiny threads Men and women wore wigs Men wore banyans loose gowns over their shirt and breeches outdoors in the summer or inside anytime Soft hats were often worn inside instead of wigs Some wore cloaks over waistcoats Hats were worn every day Some were small some had wide brims and

Pocket hoops under skirt Wore clogs over shoes to protect from mudThey traveled by boat wagon or stagecoach They stayed at inns or taverns overnight Taverns had dinner and entertainment sometimes

slow and hard First roads were paths that followed old Indian trails Had to travel by foot They widened paths for travel with carts or wagons Many wooden bridges could only be used on footBy mid 1700s

the minuet Williamsburg Virginia had fancy parties and balls at Governor's Palace Only the most imp ppl invited Finest clothes and orchestra They celebrated some holidays but not like we do They didn't take time off to celebrate Christmas Some colonies forbid celebrating because they didn't think it was a Christian holiday Later times had simple celebration with small gifts for kids a few decorations and special foods like plum pudding Simple decor like fruit wreaths outside Sometimes groups of ppl visited their friends and sang carols They were invited in for a hot drink and refreshmentsWhen they came in from the fields slaves gathered around campfire for stories and music and folktales with morals about good and evil An older person told them On Sundays they were with their families singing and playing music They made drums with hollowed out gourds or small barrels with goat or sheep skin Bison horns for flutes and dried animal bones as drumsticks Struck cowbells with sticks They sang spirituals religious songs from America and African songs Field workers often chanted rhythms to work at quick pace They tied dried nuts beans and seeds onto a net and put around a dried gourd as instrument The last page was so jarring and completely unlike the rest of the book The info was dropped suddenly and then switched to a whole page on prejudice and how prejudice was developed against African Americans for the color of their skin and a myth was created that Africans were inferior It then went on to talk about Africans being segregated and suffering discrimination The last paragraph informed the reader that prejudice hurts and isn't good and asked the reader if we were prejudiced against anyone and if we've tried to be friends with them and asked how we can change it It's a good message but this book wasn't about prejudice and I wish it had left off on wrapping up the colonial way of lifeThis had so much great information that would help me in writing a colonial novel I wish I owned this so I could have it with me to look at any time I needed it I look forward to reading her other books
