Finding Religious Freedom
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     It is 17th century England. Religious freedom does not exist. You must belong to the Church of England. The king's guard makes sure that you go to church and worship God in the "correct" way. If you do not, you are persecuted. You could be beaten or even killed.
 
2     You believe this is wrong. People should be able to worship God in their own way. So what do you do? You band together with other people who believe the same way you do. You board a ship and head for the New World. This is what many people did during this time period.
 
3     Some of the first English immigrants to the U. S. were the Pilgrims. In 1620, 102 brave men and women came to the New World on a tiny ship called the Mayflower. They were on a religious journey. They were going to build a perfect society to live in.
