Transcript of Nathan & Austin
The main religion in Pennsylvania at that time was Quakers (the society of friends). But they allowed other religions such as, Mennionites, Calvinists, and the Amish. Each were allowed to practice their religions freely.
The founder of Pennsylvania was William Penn Before the colony was founded the king did not appreciate Quakers. They believed that you should treat all people equally they did not fight in wars nor did they pay taxes to the church this gave the king an excuse to send Penn and his kind to the knew colony's. Pennsylvania was named after Penn, the Penn in Pennsylvania was for him and sylvania was named for woods, so pennsylvania is Penns woods
