American Colonies' Divergence from England
Number of pages:
An 8 page research paper that examines the similarities and differences between England and her American colonies in 1750. The writer argues that by 1750, the English speaking colonies of North America, instigated and maintained under the auspices of the British crown, had diverged from many of the English norms of that era. Naturally, the numerous ties to England and English custom, such as the grounding of American jurisprudence in English Common Law, continued to exist and exists to this day. However, there were also distinct differences between the norms of the Old World and the New. Bibliography lists 11 sources (some citations are incomplete).
