At the North Shore Senior Center, Nielsen Campus:  Thirteen Colonies: Pioneers Aren't Like the Rest of Us Joyce Haworth, Instructor, College of Lake County


Sometimes pioneers were a little crazy, and the always had interesting stories to tell. The founding cast of the original colonies included politicians and poets, religious zealots and realists, liars and reformers, poor men who rose to the halls of power in America, and women like Margaret Brent of Maryland who took advantage of the
openness of the frontier. Along with the story of New Amsterdam, the Puritan and Quaker experiments in government, and the Chesapeake's raw history of
hardship and enslavement, you'll learn about lost colonies such as New Sweden and Roanoke, how Delaware kept itself from being absorbed by its larger neighbors, and the plan to make Georgia colony the silk capitol of the New
World.
