The Colony of Delaware

By Muhtasim and Sunad

Religion

Delaware had a very different form of religious tolerance then, say, Massachusetts. Delaware had no main religion, and it opened up to religious freedom for many religions. In Massachusetts, people were mainly Puritan, and they did not promote religious freedom.

Government

A Shared Government

The government of this colony was shared with Pennsylvania. They shared the same legislative assembly. They were allowed to have a separate legislative assembly starting in 1701, and in 1776 Delaware was declared separate from Pennsylvania. The government was made of two assemblies and was similar to the other colonies, and allowed the colony to have FULL self rule.
