    James Oglethorpe and the “Georgia Trustees” founded the Georgia colony as a haven for Britain's poor and unskilled, where they could live, learn a skill, and become productive members of society. However, the best of intentions often do not come to fruition, and the Georgia colony was no exception. Rather than a debtor's haven, Georgia became a military stronghold, involved in border wars, wars with Native Indians, other colonies, and France and Spain.

Those disputes resulted in groundbreaking political principles, many of which became the foundation of the new federal government when the US became independent.

    Maryland was founded as a haven for English Catholics, persecuted by the Protestants in England and the English government as well. However, the intent of Maryland's founders was never fulfilled because of feuds between Catholics and Protestants and the eventually takeover of the colony by the British government, turning it from a proprietary colony to a royal colony under the control of the British government.

    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.
