He uses persuasive diction and figures of speech to reinforce his idea of a “city upon a hill”, which is having absolute unity and conformity in able for the colony to prosper. Finally, in Patrick Henry speech, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!”, wants for people to go to the war, so they won’t be seen as somebody weak, he goes for that we go to war not for the love of bloodshed but to prove them their strength than they think.

Puritan influences shaped the colony’s government. For example only land owning men who had a church membership could vote (T 62). The Puritans establishment of a state religion also influenced the establishment of smaller more tolerant colonies around Massachusetts and the actions of the Puritans towards the natives. The settlers justified their mistreatment and cruelty, such as the burning William Bradford describes, “It was a fearful to see them thus frying in the fire, and the streams of blood quenching the same; and horrible was the stink and scent thereof: but the victory seemed so sweet sacrifice, and they gave the praise thereof to God,” (Doc D), as the will of God.

These two pieces of art have almost polar opposite tones. The Tone of the Iroquois Constitution has an official government document kind of tone, talking about being peaceful to each other, and guidelines for the nations to follow in terms of peace. “The Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” has a dark fear inflicting tone to it. The back story of this piece is Jonathon Edwards is preaching to the puritans about fearing God, and the consequences that come from not living religiously. The tone of both of these pieces is quite impressive.
In the mid-1600s, the New England Puritans had a vision: they were to create the perfect Christian church and settlement, one that was made according to their interpretation of the original church Jesus had visualized. They were a very religious group and wanted to build a place of refuge for themselves. Unlike the colonist of the Chesapeake Bay colonies, they did not immigrate to make a fortune. The main reason the Puritans traveled to America was because they wanted to build a “City Upon a Hill”, since they were persecuted in England for their beliefs. From the 1630s to the 1660s, the Puritan’s beliefs greatly influenced the political, economical, and social development of the New England colonies.

Also, Douglass was a spiritual man, who believed in god and believed he was “[…] called upon to bring humble offerings to the national altar, and to confess the benefits and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us?” (1). This interrogative sentence evokes an aware feeling because they consider the fact he is speaking to better the people and nation, not just to talk or upset anyone. With this in mind, Douglass cared more for the people than himself, although he did side with the slaves
In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, the townsfolk of Salem, Massachusetts are used to illustrate the religious beliefs and morals derived from the heavily practiced Puritanism. Puritanism centralizes on the belief that God and His worshippers have formed a sacred covenant, therefore, Puritans must always serve God justly to ensure His protection. Authors throughout history have inscribed various accounts of Puritans upholding their covenants with God, which include: encouraging separation between the rich and the poor, establishing dominance over easy targets, and exiling or correcting sinners. John Winthrop delves celebrates into the accepted inequality between Puritans in A Model Of Christian Clarity, William Bradford considers the Native Americans solely as instruments of God in The History of Plymouth Plantation, and witchcraft accusations fly Cotton Mather’s description of the want to remove the devil from New England inin Cotton Mather’s The Wonders of the Invisible World. Like all ofSimilar to these authors, Arthur MMiller showsprovides, through multiple characters, insight on the length in which Puritans will go to convince themselves they are honoring their Covenant with God, even if they hurt others in the
From the pages he wrote, he captured the idea of how the Native Americans journeyed bravely through the eyes of the unseen or the biased. Bonnie C. Harvey seemed to be stuck on the idea of perfecting people with religion, including the “success of the Choctaws”. She didn’t care to mention that the Choctaws were included in the Trail of Tears along with many others.

In 1537, Pope Paul III pronounced that Indians were not mammoths to be slaughtered or oppressed, but rather people with souls fit for salvation. At the time, this was comprehended to be an edified perspective of indigenous individuals, and one that good natured teachers tried to empower. Letters from ministers who lived among the Indians give us a feeling of the worries numerous held for the welfare of tribal people groups. A letter by Franciscan monk Juan de Escalona reprimands the "shocks against the Indians" conferred by a Spanish legislative head of what is presently New Mexico.
Since initially puritans, migrated together as a family, it established a sense that they were going to things as one, the community first than themselves. Religion, or more to say, God, was the leading point in which the Puritan’s were able to stumble upon the land since it was given to them. Thus how “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” comes into play, since God has to be praised and adored for him to bless us. God is the greater good and for which we have to follow.

I believe the cause of all of this is because the Puritans were too committed in their religion. Puritans were very committed to their religion, that they didn’t see what was going on.

The belief that God is active and in control of every aspect of their lives because they believed that when they received good things it was a sign of God’s grace, and misfortune was a sign of God’s divine judgment for the purpose of punishing his people for their misdeeds and to teach them a lesson from it. When Rowlandson and the Indians are making their way across the river she realizes that the English Army is on their way, but when the English arrived at the river they couldn’t cross it to follow. “God did not give them the courage to or activity to go over after us; we were not ready for so great a mercy as victory and deliverance”(Rowlandson
