Great Migration- Established a basis for a stable and thriving society by shipping over less than one third of the English emigration in the 1630’s with servants representing about one quarter of the great migration. Most arrived in families for multiple reasons such as escaping religious prosecution, anxiety about the future of England, and for the hope of a better economy. With New England’s healthier climate compared to Virginia and Maryland New England’s population grew rapidly, even though the region received a small fraction of the century’s migration. By 1700, New England’s population outnumbered both the Chesapeake and the West Indies’ population, with nearly all being descendants of the Great Migration. Anne Hutchinson- in the 1630’s, Hutchinson attracted a large influential following by holding meetings in her home in Massachusetts-leading discussions on religious issues among men and women, including a number of prominent merchants and public officials. She was set apart from other puritans by accusing nearly all the ministers in Massachusetts of being guilty of faulty preaching for distinguishing “saints” from the dammned on the basis of things such as church attendance and moral behavior rather than an inner state of grace. In 1637, she was placed on trial for expressing opinions dangerous to authority were she ably debating her interpretation of the bible during her trial with university-educated accusers and held her own. However, she and her followers were banished after she spoke on trial of God speaking directly to her instead of through ministers or the Bible-which violated Puritan doctrine and threatened the existence of organized churches. Cotton Mather- During the Salem Witch Trials, in the 1690’s, Mather was known as a reverend and theologian and was prominent in the accusation that witchcraft had taken over Salem. He preached that Salem was founded on the Devil’s grounds and published illustrations and readings about it. Kings Philip’s War- One of the bloodiest and most bitter conflicts in 1675 where Indian alliances attacked farmers and settlements that were encroaching their Indian lands resulting in the most dramatic and violent warfare in the entire seventeenth century. A Wampanoag leader named Metacom known as King Philip is who the Englanders dubbed as the mastermind behind the attacks. With the white population outnumbered by Indians the fate of the New England colonies were hung in the balance for months. Months in which nearly half of the New England towns were attacked and 12 of Massachusetts towns were destroyed until the battle turned due to counterattacks by the settlers breaking the Indian’s power with importance to the aid by the Iroquois. After the capturing and executing of King Philip the idea of Indians being blood thirsty savages grew in the mind of the Englanders and broadened their freedom by expanding their access to land.
