The Rhode Island Story
By kara_s00, Updated
I will explain HOW and WHY Rhode Island was founded.
I'll show them! They think it's fair to ban me for me different views, I'll purchase some land and start my OWN colony!
I just don't understand why I can't have my own opinion. I have done nothing but obey up until now. I thought the whole point of the "New World" was to have religious freedom...
This land looks kinda nice. I think I just found the site for my brand-new colony... I shall call is Rhode Island. It'll be amazing. True religious freedom, separation of church and state.
I'll give you $5,000 for it!
I think that would be great! The land is all yours from here on!
As the years progressed, the new King of England granted the wish of the Rhode Island colony to be granted an elected governor and legislature.
The colony was everything that Roger Williams had hoped for. There was not one specific religion anyone had to be and the overall mindset was greater than at the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
