hardships that they faced in coming to a new land

The early writings of colonial Americans reflect the hardships that they faced in coming to a new land and in forming a new country. Choose three writers from the list below; and, from analyses and interpretations of their writings and from research, discuss what they communicate about the hardships of this new land, new government, and new culture. Be specific to the assigned readings in the textbook, and provide examples from those readings. As you explore pertinent contexts, be careful to use appropriate literary, political, and cultural terminology in your writing.—- John Smith, William Bradford, Anne Bradstreet, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, Phillis Wheatley
