Why did colonization occur in north america?
The puritans (Christians who broke away from the church of
England) wanted a purer simpler religion so they colonized in North
America. They then learned how to grow crops and took over the land
leaving a small amount for the Native Americans. They did this
because they wanted more Europeans living in North America.
Europeans soon discovered gold which made more Europeans come to
the land, this pushed the native Americans off the land.
