CHAPTER 13  This chapter is about the Dutch prince of Orange interfering with the unfair ruling of King James in England.  King James was ruling with his Catholic ways, putting the Protestants in jeopardy.  William, the Dutch prince, came to save the Protestants and try to form a Dutch alliance.  The attack was known as the “glorious revolution.”
  4. 4. CHAPTER 14  Around the 18th century, travel became much more popular.  It tripled in a period of one hundred years.  The ocean was no longer known an obstacle, but more of a bridge between the two countries.  This bridge became a carrier of information.
  5. 5. CHAPTER 14 CONT.  Colonists were much better informed.  Immigration of Catholics and Jews to British America was strongly discouraged while immigration of Protestants was encouraged.  Since only certain people emigrated, the result was a great deal of space between freedom and slavery, privilege and prejudice, wealth and poverty, and white and black.
