Adventures in Colonial America, Volume VII by Mary A. Baewer

Posted by Erik Nilsson, May 2017

Author: Mary A. Baewer   Narrator: Deren Hansen   Language: English    Category: History


In 1607, three small ships – the Discovery, Godspeed, and Susan Constant – arrived on the shores of the eastern North American coast and established the first successful British settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. For two centuries, colonists faced the challenges of life in a new world – weather, Native Indian attacks, starvation, and disease – to establish the strongest economy in the American colonies. Volume VII of the Adventures in Colonial America series discusses the contributions of these colonists in creating probably the most powerful colonial economy in 17th and 18th Century British North America, including politicians, clergy, plantation owners, and artisans. The book also discusses the establishment of the Anglican Church as the official state religion – and how that policy impacted the writing of the US Constitution and the separation of church and state. Virginia’s role in the American Revolution, from the fall of Norfolk to the victory at Yorktown is also discussed. Virginia’s native sons, including Jefferson, Washington, Madison, and Monroe, were among many of our founding fathers who not only fought during the American Revolution but fought a political battle on the floor of Virginia’s legislature and the Continental Congress. Following the Revolution they were instrumental in creating the US Constitution and Bill of Rights which provide all Americans with legal protections that we benefit from centuries later.

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
