Example text

They brought together many of the male colonists (women were generally excluded from politics by law) to sign a declaration of allegiance to the new colonial government. This document, known as the Mayflower Compact, is a striking expression of the English idea that government should be founded on the consent of the people. But it is also indicative of the acute fears that leaders of the colony had about the potential for political strife, even among this pious band of religious pilgrims. In The Name of God, Amen.

The vast majority of these migrants were, much like the Pilgrims, members of a dissident religious minority. These “Puritans,” as their opponents called them, believed that the Church of England and, in turn, the English nation as a whole, needed spiritual purification. The New World seemed to offer the prospects of starting over, of building a new society from scratch, founded entirely on fundamental Biblical principles and freed from the corrupting influences of the Old World. The prospects not only of worshipping as they wished, but also of living in the kind of society they had been envisioning for years, stimulated in Puritan migrants a heady sort of anticipation.

Desperate, on edge, and often starving, those colonists that did survive found themselves in a state of almost ceaseless turmoil. As food grew scarce and treasure proved even scarcer, people’s fuses shortened, and the colony found itself plagued by infighting. Part of the problem was simply that the young gentlemen who settled Virginia were a particularly quarrelsome lot. As sons of privilege, they expected to give orders, not receive them from the colonial council and a series of elected presidents of the colony.
