Although both were largely settled originally by people of English origin, Massachusetts Bay and the Chesapeake Region by 1700 had evolved into two distinct (unique and different) societies. Why did this difference in development occur?
The Albany Plan of Union was a proposal to create a unified government for the Thirteen Colonies, suggested by Benjamin Franklin, then a senior leader of 48 and a delegate from Pennsylvania, at the Albany Congress in July 1754 in Albany, New York. More than twenty representatives of several northern and mid-Atlantic colonies had gathered to plan their defense related to the French and Indian War, the front in North America of the Seven Years War between Great Britain and France. The Plan represented an early attempt to form a union of the colonies “under one government as far as might be necessary for defense and other general important purposes.”

Slave population grew RAPIDLY in colonial America, particularly in the South. By 1750, half of Virginia’s population and 2/3 of South Carolina’s were slaves. The rooting of the institution of slavery was of far greater importance than that of mercantilism.
The Three Factors of Why There Was An Increased Demand for Slavery:
1. Reduced Migration-wages in England improved.
2. Dependable Work Force- Large plantation owners were disturbed by the political demands of small farmers and indentured servants like Bacon’s Rebellion.
3. Cheap Labor- As tobacco prices fell, rice and indigo became profitable. To grow successfully they needed the cheapest of labor.
Slaves came to America via the Triangular Trade (see photo) via Africa.
