The Puritans were a group of Christians who believed in worshipping Jesus in a more simple way. Under King James I of England, Puritanism was outlawed.

The Puritans started many colonies including Providence, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. Puritan ideas would influence the Declaration of Independence and Constitution many years later.
