The New England Colonies
By Callie Walker and Romy Cour
Rhode Island was the first place in the 13 colonies that was diverse.
Catholics, Jews, Baptists, and even Quakers were welcomed, as well as anyone else that wanted to come in Rhode Island. But even though Rhode Island is that way, all the other New England colonies are Puritans. Being a Puritan means following strict rules including: always attending church, no singing or celebrating holidays, and many others. They are intolerant of other religions.
