I just studied this in American History class today so you are in luck. Government of the colonies: Each colony had a Govenor. Each had a Council which was the upper house and was made up of white male land owners. They were appointed by the govenor. Which makes you think if they were only his friends and no one else. Each had an assembly which was the lower house/legislative body. They were the only elected body in the early colonies. They controlled the money and the taxes. I hope that this helps:)
