The Last Colonials
The Last Colonials describes life in the 1700s in the northern colonies of America, what our ancestors ate, the clothes they wore, and how they eked out a living in Pittsylvania Country, the "uncivilized" land west of the Allegheny Mountains that separated the eastern parts of Pennsylvania and Virginia from their far western lands. It compares the wealthier eastern colonists' way of life with the poorer settlers who lived in the "far lands." Read how the early settlers coped with the Indians who killed entire families in the scattered settlements. Learn how the settlers made clothes from plants and animals, how they preserved food, what their children went through at school, and how the strict Puritans maintained law and order. The colonial era ended when the colonists won their War of Independence from England and became citizens of the new United States. This book is purchased at the lowest cost through Lulu.com.
