China

China has a huge variety in geography. It has the Himalayas mountain in the south, Gobi desert in the north, many river valleys and mountainous regions in the center, and a large coastline with the Pacific Ocean.

By 500 AD China had already had several impressive dynasties Xia, Shang, Zhou, Qin, and the Han dynasty. After the Han dynasty, China was almost divided in half politically, until the Tang Empire reunited it in 618.

In the pictures above you can see how China changed. In 1450 the Ming empire ruled but by 1750 the Qing Empire had taken over and conquered more land.

George I and George II

George  I was born in 1660, in a region in Hanover. For the years of his life, he was the only heir to the German lands of his father and uncles. George became the monarch of Great Britain at the age of 54, when his second cousin, Queen Anne,  died. Over 50 other people had closer blood ties to the throne than George, but he was the closest Protestant.  In 1701 the Act of Settlement was established and it prohibited any Catholics from inheriting the British throne The Jacobites believed that James Francis Stuart was the rightful ruler, and they tried to rid George from throne but failed. When George I died, his son George II took over.

George II was the last British monarch born outside Great Britain, being born and up to Hanover. At first, George II was associated with politics, unlike his father, but he later joined the government party before becoming king in 1777. Although George overcame troubles from the Jacobites and outlived his son,  his is remembered for almost nothing positive.

 

George Whitefield

George Whitefield was born in Gloucester, England in 1714. His parents were poor innkeepers and George did not have the money to attend college. As a result, he paid for his college by being a servant at Oxford. Whitefield was initiated into the legalistic style of Christianity during his time at Oxford. He had a conversation experience finally after crying out to God in prayer one day. After this, Whitefield became passionate about the things of God and began preaching. After becoming preacher, George Whitefield visited the American colonies as a parish priest. While there he saw an orphanage in great need and decided that, along with preaching, would be his life works. He returned to England to raise funds and continue preaching.  Some people claimed that his voice could be heard for 5 miles, allowing him to preach to thousands of people at once. Whitefield also play a role on the founding of America by warning the colonists that the king would take away their liberties over time. Whitefield visited the colonies a total of 7 times, and eventually died and buried there in 1770.

The First 6 of the 13 Colonies

The 13 colonies were a series of British settlements on the Atlantic coast of North America.

The very first colony was Virginia. It began with Jamestown in 1607. Jamestown was the capital of Virginia until 1699, when it was changed to Williamsburg. Different parts of the colony later became Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The Province of Massachusetts was made by combining the Plymouth Colony and the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Most of the leaders were Puritan but other religions were tolerated. The colonists had some trouble with the natives soon after arriving and the Pequot War broke out in 1636. The colony became the Province of Massachusetts when William and Mary issued a new charter in 1691.

While chartering Massachusetts William and Mary also started the colony of New Hampshire. The colony was named after Hampshire county in England, and at first was part of Massachusetts. At first, New Hampshire was not interested in supporting the move for independence, but eventually the revolutionary spirit spread through the colony.

Maryland  was an English colony established  by Lord Baltimore in 1632. The colony was tolerant of other religions. Although all of the other colonies were Protestant, Maryland was Catholic.  Maryland farmed tobacco to sell to Europe. Most of the profitable farms were in the area of Chesapeake Bay.

Connecticut was founded 4 years after Maryland by a Puritan minister. The Pequot War between settlers and the native Americans was mostly fought on Connecticut soil. Connecticut also helped in establishing colonial governments that were distinct from England.

Rhode Island was founded in 1636, when Rogers Williams and Anne Hutchison were banished from Massachusetts. Both of them founded their own little colony, Rhode Island and Providence Plantation , but they were combined in 1663. Rhode Island was mostly religiously tolerant, except for its treatment of Jews and Quakers.
