SO THE PURITANS.
AND THE SEPARATISTS.
they werent happy with the church.
the Church of England, that is.
AND THE SEPARATISTS SAILED OVER HERE TO ‘MERICUH AND SUDDENLY PILGRIMS
so what about the puritans
These guys were the ones that wanted to fix the Church. And some of them did sail over the America. The Boston.
AND THEY DID THAT BECAUSE JOHN
all dese johns uh
THEY DID THAT BECAUSE WINTHROP.
k das beter
SO THIS GUY WAS ENGLISH.
and so about the time that winthrop here was old enough to like make his own decisions suddenly king charles
who didnt like puritans
or the separatists
BUT BASICALLY JOHN DIDN’T WANNA BE A SEPARATIST
But if the Puritans kept. Like. Being Puritans. Then they could get in trouble
SO THE IDEA OF LEAVING THE COUNTRY STARTED SOUNDING REALLY NICE.
winthrop and some other guys went up the king charles all like hey can we just like leave so we can
that is the only thing were gonna do were just gonna fish ok
SO CHARLES WAS LIKE YEAH SURE WHY NOT GET OUT
And before anyone ever actually left they picked Winthrop to be their governor.
AND THEN THEY WENT TO SALEM. IN 1630. WOW LOOK ITS A DATE REMEMBER THIS STUFF
THEY LEFT ENGLAND. IN THE SPRING.
this was a really really really big group of people ok
the biggest, actually.
like. seriously. 700.
which was a lot. it was the largest one that had ever sailed at the time ever.
so they left derp
They were pretty good at the whole living thing though. Because they were really nice to each other. HEY WE SHOULD ALL BE PURITANS what ok anyway
So John preached some before they left. And a lot of people heard. And then a lot of people were like THESE GUYS ARE PRETTY COOL WE SHOULD LEAVE THE COUNTRY TOO.
BUT AFTER 72 DAYS AT SEA THEY FINALLY GOT THERE
and were really confused because there were only some huts and some tents on the beach
which werent really enough for 700 people
and there were only 82 people living there because over half the population had died or left
BUT IT WASN’T THE END OF THE WORLD BECAUSE THE PURITANS WERE REALLY HARD WORKING PEOPLE UNLIKE THOSE IN JAMESTOWN. LIKE. IT WAS LITERALLY A PART OF THEIR RELIGION TO WORK. THEY WERE LIKE. YEAH LETS WORK. EVERYWHERE. ALL THE TIME.
yeah. forget that idea about becoming puritans uh
AND THEY WERE REALLY SUCCESSFUL.
and in the fall he moved to boston. which he helped build.
SO YOU KNOW HARVARD
6 YEARS AFTER THE PURITANS GOT THERE THEY BUILT IT
THAT IS REALLY REALLY FAST OK.
education was also really really important to the puritans also. like. these werent the LOL CANT READ OR WRITE BUT WORK REAL GOOD people no they were really smart also
das real coo
also this law that was made in the new world was pretty cool too i think
If a town has 50 families, they needed a teacher. To teach the students about Christianity.
And it was called the “Old Deluder Satan Act”
THIS IS ACTUALLY P COOL GOOGLE IT SERIOUSLY IT’S AWESOME
and the puritans were also pretty cool. a lot of people don’t really get that? they’re like THEY WERE BORING AND STUCK OP no man the puritans were rad ok
SO WHAT ABOUT THE INDIANS.
Basically they were also pretty cool with the Indians. They shared Christianity with them and everyone was pretty happy. They also continued on surviving, and John Winthrop was elected governor ELEVEN TIMES
the Puritans in the new world went up to TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND
they did everything pretty well.
