The Puritans were English Protestants who believed that the alterations of the Church of England did not go far enough. In their view the church was too Catholic. In England, the Puritans were people of political influence, but King Charles did not agree with their attempts to reform the church. There seemed to be no hope for them but to leave England because they were being persecuted. They believed in America they could establish a colony whose government, society, and church were all bases on the Bible.
However, the President and the Confederates tried unsuccessfully to portray that slavery was not the main cause of conflict and that is wasn’t the primary cause of the Civil War. Lincoln tried to convince himself that the South could keep slavery and that eventually slavery would just fade away. However, the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 changed the Presidents outlook

Northern also disagreed with the expansion of slavery West because they knew it would discourage free laborers from settling in the area. Senator of South Carolina Calhoun argued that Congress had no right to say whether slavery should or shouldn’t occur in new territory because territory belong
Religion influenced the government of the Puritans. They believed that they each had their own boundaries or power given by the Lord (Doc H). Puritans wanted the church and government to intertwine and aid one another, creating a stronger bond. In addition, the Puritan’s emphasis on religious conformity and the attainment of land for their model society led them to engage in wars with neighboring Indian tribes. For instance, William Bradford fought with Pequot tribe in the Pequot War, believing that God is the source of their victory and therefore praise him (Doc D).

He was forced to have officers to make sure it was enforced and the officers were not enemies as the indians thought they were. The indians brought it upon themselves by not signing the treaty that soldiers were sent in to enforce that it be
Since the beginning of colonization in North America, Anglo-Saxon Americans have continuously been moving west. Some might say that their westward colonization was destined; a right given by God. While this expedition began from the colonization of the New world, it was truly identified as Manifest Destiny in the 1840s. Anglo-Saxons saw it as their duty to spread civilization and replace darkness with light. After the second Great awakening, many truly believed that God Himself had blessed the advancement of the American Nation.
It consisted on limiting the American colonists to expand further west. Great Britain passed this act to ease relations with the natives just as the American Promise book on page 149 says “The proclamation offered assurances that Indian territory would be respected”. The colonists took the proclamation of 1763 the wrong way because the colonists thought they had the right to expand. Great Britain never wanted to cause any
The separation of church and state is a pillar of the constitution written by America’s Founding Fathers. The colonists inhabited and colonized America, so that they could develop a government that was not fused with any religion.

The settlers also called the “white men” believed that the movement of the Indians would bring peace. The settlers also believed that they needed the land more than the native Americans so taking the land was a must do thing. Although there have been many different opinions on the trail of tears the Indians should not have been forced to move out of their homelands. Leading up to the Trail of tears Migration from the original Cherokee Nation began in the early 1800’s. Some Cherokees, that were not comfortable with the whites moving in on their territories, the Indians moved west on their own and settled in other areas of the country.
The native americans saw spirits and gods in almost everything, while the Europeans did not think the same way. The Europeans would pray but would not take religion as earnestly as the natives. The commandments say to “Love thy Neighbor”, but the Europeans not only take advantage of the natives, but also take their land. Alongside the religious aspect of their differences, money was also a big factor in the bias. Native Americans did not need money to live in tranquility, as they did before the Europeans came into the picture.
