Puritans, Quakers, and Catholics were coming in droves to America searching for an opportunity to have religious freedom. The New Englanders took religion seriously, making unitary laws according to Puritan standards. John Winthrop, later chosen as the first Massachusetts Bay Colony governor, was seeking religious freedom. Wishing to inspire the colonists to dwell in brotherly unity, he summoned them together to remind them “that if we [colonists] shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word through the world.” On the other hand, those in the Chesapeake region came for the wealth that America promised.

From the period of the American Revolution to the end of the nineteenth century, American citizens fought and struggled to achieve what they have today in terms of their liberty. Our founding fathers believed every man was born with equal rights and not just one person had all the rights, like a king for instance.

Introduction Nathaniel Hawthorne had deep bonds with his Puritan ancestors and created a story that both highlighted their weaknesses and their strengths. His knowledge of their beliefs and his admiration for their strengths were balanced by his concerns for their rigid and oppressive rules.The Scarlet Letter shows his attitude toward these Puritans of Boston in his portrayal of characters, his plot, and the themes of his story. The early Puritans who first came to America in 1620 founded a precarious colony in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

When Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on January 30, 1948, the world hailed him as one of the greatest spiritual leaders, not just of the century, but of all time.

Therefore if the crucifixion and resurrection were not true then there would not be a point of them dying for something that is just a lie and made up it just does not make logical sense. For example, Simon Peter who was a coward that denied Jesus three times but after the resurrection became a courageous leader who later on ended up crucified upside down because of his convictions.
