http://surinamslavery.blogspot.com/ Thank You Regardless of New England's spiritual tumult, its white settlers population continued to rise.
The towns imported their customs, tools, and livestock as other land became harder to obtain.
Native Americans of the area tried to adapt to the changes but still hold onto their customs.
They looked to settle an agreement with the colonial government to keep their rights and lifestyle they are familiar with. A big fear the colonists had was the Salem witch trials. If you believed in astronomy, alchemy or were interested in anything that could be witchcraft, you would be killed. People had to be very careful what they believed in and said. http://www.englishonlinecalifornia.com/resources/units/crucible/background.html
