Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn in 1682.  

Demographics

The people that lived in Pennsylvania were Quakers (William Penn) who wanted to practice their religion freely. They came around the early 1680’s. Many of these people did not bring their families from England, but they were suitable workers for the land around them. Few indentured servants came to Pennsylvania. The Quakers were persecuted because they did not want to follow the Church of England. The Quakers were more accepting of other religions compared to their neighbors, the puritans. The puritans were all about God while the quakers did think God should be all about life. My colony will treat you with welcoming hospitality.Trust me, we do not bite.

Economy and Trade

The Quakers were hard working people who knew they had to survive. Pennsylvania was part agriculture and part industrial. They grew wheat and other grains. They also made paper and textiles. They had good trade relations with England. The land was plentiful of trees with endless wood and meat. They also had the ability to get water from the trees by putting a spout in them. You need to work if you want to survive, but we will not starve you like the Virginian, John Smith.

Government

Many of the colonists in Pennsylvania thought that they had the right to govern themselves. As time went on, they did not want to pay taxes because they couldn’t serve in the English government.You  have a better chance in serving in our government compared to the English government. This also was the same in the northern colonies. Our colony is a proprietary government, thus showing our devotion to the mighty king. A  proprietary government is ran by a superior person, that is granted by their royal highness.

Geography of Land

In 1680 the King granted 45,000 square miles of land west of the Delaware River to William Penn. The land was fertile enough for crops unlike the New England colonies. The land was also plentiful with trees because they were near the Appalachian Mountains. This resulted in the good economy for the colonists.

Unique Characteristics Of The Bread Basket

About half of adults in the middle colonies could sign their name. In 1683 a law passed in Pennsylvania gave the right for children to be taught to read and write. Boys were taught school and life lessons while girls learned skills in the house. Anybody who comes to my colony will have a good education so that you can handle those southerners and New Englanders the right way.
