For questions 9-16, read the passage below and answer with reference to it. Bernard Bailyn has recently reinterpreted the early history of the United States by applying new social research findings on the experiences of European migrants. In his reinterpretation, migration becomes the organizing principle for rewriting the history of preindustrial North America. His approach rests on four separate propositions. The first of these asserts that residents of early modern England moved regularly about their countryside; migrating to the New World was simply a “natural spill over.” Although at first the colonies held little positive attraction for the English—they would rather have stayed home—by the eighteenth century people increasingly migrated to America because they regarded it as the land of opportunity. Secondly, Bailyn holds that, contrary to the notion that used to flourish in America history textbooks, there was never a typical New World community. For example, the economic and demographic character of early New England towns varied considerably. Bailyn’s third proposition suggests two general patterns prevailing among the many thousands of migrants: one group came as indentured servants, another came to acquire land. Surprisingly, Bailyn suggests that those who recruited indentured servants were the driving forces of transatlantic migration. These colonial entrepreneurs helped determine the social character of people who came to preindustrial North America. At first, thousands of unskilled labourers were recruited; by the 1730’s, however, American employers demanded skilled artisans.

the ideas and institutions developed by New England Puritans had powerful effects on North American culture. The author of the passage states that Bailyn failed to a. where the settlers created effective laws. built a distinguished university. Which of the following statements about migrants to colonial North America is supported by information in the passage? a. as Bailyn does. migrants already skilled in a trade were in more demand by American employers than were unskilled labourers e. Migrants who came to the colonies as indentured servants were more successful at making a livelihood than were farmers and artisans c. It is true. and published books? Bailyn might respond that New England was exceptional. However. But to divide the empire into English core and colonial periphery. He is undoubtedly correct to insist that the colonies were part of an AngloAmerican empire. he fails to link their experience with the political development of the United States. These indentured servants were treated as slaves for the period during which they had sold their time to American employers. Although Bailyn goes on to apply his approach to some thousands of indentured servants who migrated just prior to the revolution. Evidence presented in his work suggests how we might make such a connection. among colonists who were suspicious of authority and intensely anti-aristocratic. give sufficient emphasis to the cultural and political interdependence of the colonies and England b. A significant percentage of migrants who came to the colonies to acquire land were forced to work as field hands for prosperous American farmers 10. Migrants to colonial North America were more successful at acquiring their own land during the eighteenth century than during the seven-tenth century d. Bailyn argues that the colonies were a half-civilized hinterland of the European culture system. But what of seventeenthcentury New England. that high culture in the colonies never matched that in England. Thus.Finally. describe carefully how migrants of different ethnic backgrounds preserved their culture in the united States Coffee With SIBM – An Aspirant Relations Team Initiative Page 4 . as Bailyn claims. devalues the achievements of colonial culture. 9. it is in the west that a peculiarly American political culture began. A larger percentage of migrants to colonial North America came as indentured servants than as free agents interested in acquiring land b. It is not surprising that as soon as they served their time they passed up good wages in the cities and headed west to ensure their personal independence by acquiring land. By the 1730’s.

Most of them came because they were unable to find work in England c. It is intriguing though unsubstantiated 12. suggesting that new social research on migration should lead to revisions in current interpretations of early American history Coffee With SIBM – An Aspirant Relations Team Initiative Page 5 . The author of the passage is primarily concerned with a. The cultural achievements of colonial New England have generally been unrecognized by historians c. They expected that the colonies would offer them increased opportunity e. take advantage of social research on the experiences of colonists who migrated to colonial North America specifically to acquire land d.
