Colonies in America: Commerce, Business, and the Economy

Internet Sources & Maps

Although we have tried to be broadly inclusive in our selection of general sources on this topic, this listing is not comprehensive. Many state libraries or historical societies often have important collections not found anywhere else. Since they are interested in digitizing materials and other content important in telling the story of their state it may be helpful to visit the websites.

Some of the entries include primary sources (digitized or transcribed) while others have both primary sources as well as other resources, particularly those that teach history. Some entries are likely to be places that would be good for research from this time period even though there may not be a large trove of digitized content available on-line.
