This video gives an introduction to the Southern Colonies. The Southern Colonies were Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Virginia was the first permanent English colony of the Southern Colonies. Georgia was the last one to be established out of England’s Southern Colonies. They were very successful due to a warm climate, rich soil, and long growing season. These conditions promoted an agricultural based economy in the South. They grew rice, indigo, and tobacco. Most of the labor was supplied through indentured servants and African Slaves. The first African Slaves were brought into Virginia in 1619.
