Abstract

Colonial American historians have analyzed the migration and settlement of the colonies in a multifaceted aspect. Historians of colonial America continue to analyze how the migration and settlement of the settlers shaped the colonies they inhabited. Furthermore, historians have also considered the colonies to be interconnected with the greater Atlantic world and strive to make connections not only between the first English thirteen colonies but also have begun to consider how Canadian and Spanish colonies have been shaped by their settlers in the Atlantic world. Through this thought, Historians may begin to compare the colonies to each other and find that their migration and settlement patterns share similar goals and values that they may not have considered before. This paper will compare Colonial NEw England and New Mexico and analyze the goals and values that shape each of these colonies.
