As the British presence in America began to grow conflicts arose. Conflicts between the mother country - England, and the colonies, and often between the colonists themselves. As a result the British settlers began moving and forming new kinds of governments. All the while, the colonies were overseen by charters, or permissions from the Crown, to establish and run their colonies.

Students will identify and describe the key events and people of this time period.
