Description:

Digitized records of the Board of Trade, the Secretary of State for the Southern Department, and the Secretary of State for the Colonies, who together were responsible for administering British colonies in mainland North America and the Caribbean, covering the period from the 1660s to the 1750s, with some earlier and later material. Records include letters, charters and commissions, orders to officials, court records, maps and building plans, printed pamphlets and newspapers, acts of colonial assemblies, military reports, and shipping lists, among others. They document many aspects of colonial life, including the development of colonial institutions, education, economic and industrial development, relations with Native Americans, warfare, religion, slavery, immigration, and many others. This resource is continued by Colonial America 2: Towards Revolution.
