Electronic reproduction of a five-module resource containing all 1,450 files comprising the CO 5 class from the British Colonial Office. The CO 5 files cover the period 1606-1822, and consist of the original correspondence between the Board of Trade and Secretaries of State and the English, later British, colonies in North America and the Caribbean. Made up of letters, charters and commissions, instructions to officials, military documents (including war diaries), newspapers, printed pamphlets, public notices, maps and other material types, the materials shed light on all aspects of life in colonial America: political, economic, cultural and social.
