Original 13 Colonies

The Original 13 Colonies of the United States

The English settlements of the original 13 Colonies were divided into three geographic areas which were made up of the New England colonies, the Middle colonies, and the Southern colonies. Queen Elizabeth wanted to establish the colonies in the Americas to help enlarge the British Empire. If you are brushing up your US State History, remember that many of the original 13 Colonies were named after the rulers of England.
