the law anymore. Hutchinson did not actually teach this, but it was assumed by many that she did. This tension in theologyis known as the Antinomian Controversy, and it is not unique to the Hutchinson case. Some historians describe theresponse to Hutchinson’s teachings as misogynistic; perhaps it was, but the final outcome of how she was treated—convicted of heresy and expelled—was exactly how Roger Williams, a man, was treated—so I doubt that misogyny was theMAIN or even an important explanatory factor in what played out in the Hutchinson case. Any man would have beentreated the same way—perhaps worse, given the threat posed to religious authority and civil governance by such opinions.After her husband died, Hutchinson moved her family to Long Island Sound to distance herself from Massachusetts critics.There she and most of her children and servants were killed in a Lenape Indian massacre in 1643, during Kieft’s War (1643-45)—a conflict mostly between New Netherland settlers and the Lenape (Delaware) people.

Connecticut (1636)Connecticut wasfounded in 1636 by Puritans includingJohn Haynes and Thomas Hooker, who did not thinkMassachusetts was religious enough. In 1639 theyadopted the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut,which has been considered the first self-imposedwritten constitution in the New World and has earnedConnecticut the nickname the ‘Constitution State.’After the English Restoration, residents realized theyhad no legitimate claim in English law to their land, sothey sent John Winthrop, Jr., then their governor, toEngland to negotiate for a charter.

In 1687 whenJames II declared them part of the Dominion of NewEngland, they refused to surrender this Charter inwhat became known as the Charter Oak incident (thatsomeone hid the governing documents in an oak treeis a myth).-content/uploads/2011/12/ColonialRevivalBulkeleyBridge1-e1323961176814-610x423.jpgA historical reenactment of landing in the new colony
Delaware (1638 as New Sweden, 1664 asDelaware)New Sweden (future Delaware, home of future President JoeBiden) was founded by Peter Minuit and the New SwedenCompany in 1638. It was taken from them by the Duke ofYork in 1664 when he also seized New Netherland (naming itafter his title, New York). The land was later granted byCharles II to William Penn and jointly governed for most ofcolonial history as part of Pennsylvania until 1776, when itdeclared its independence as the separate state of Delaware.It was named after the Delaware River and Bay, which gottheir names in honor of Sir Thomas West (Lord De La Warr, adescendant of Queen Mary), who was the first governor ofthe Jamestown colony from 1609-1618.
