The Colonials were in a bad mood when they came to the New World to find riches and freedom. Their journeys usually began on cramped, disease-infested ships, and they had to fight for the necessities of life when they finally arrived. In the 16th and 17th centuries, more and more Europeans came to America. Some sought freedom, but everybody wanted real estate: the French and Spanish, who fought over Florida; the English who landed in Jamestown, Virginia; the Pilgrims and Puritans who settled New England; the Dutch who trived in New Amsterdam (New York). These colonists were here to stay and the Native Americans, who were already living here, are going to have to do everything they can to survive.
