Peace amongst us all

I migrated to Pennsylvania with a hope to find religious and monetary freedom. I came as an indentured servant, I paid my debt in five years and was able to become a freeman in the colonies. I chose Pennsylvania because they had a government based on Enlightenment principles. Pennsylvania was considered a "Holy Experiment" that provided us with religious liberty and cheap land. Pennsylvania was so peaceful that we even got along with the surrounding Indians avoiding Indians wars, unlike the other colonies.
