Colonization dbq
In colonial America the 13 colonies were not united as they are today they each had their own ideas about religion, politics, and society.
Many people came to America to find religious freedom, but they were not as opened minded as some people may think. Each region had its own religion who tended to keep to each other and outside religions were frowned upon. However Maryland’s act of toleration says that no form of Christianity shall be in any way troubled (doc1). Even though Maryland had religious tolerance that doesn't mean that everyone is seen as equal. In 1763 all colonies had strict voting qualifications and each were very similar. Eligible voters in all thirteen colonies had to be a white male christian landowner (doc2).
