Well, All I can give you right now is that the middle colonies were also known as "The Bread Basket Colonies" because of their plentiful supply of grains, oats, wheat, etc. I also know that Pennsylvania was named after William Penn who founded it in the year of 1681. The reason Penn founded such a colony was because the Quakers, (which was a religious group that Penn belonged to), Were treated badly in England, ie. Persecution. Pennslyvania allowed people of all religions and races to live within the colony.
