Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania was founded in 1682 by William Penn. Mr.Renn started the colony because of religious freedom. People made money by growing crops, selling plows, tools, kettle, locks, and large blocks of iron. They grew wheat, corn, beef, and pork. The wheat was made into flour and sold to England. The religions were Quakers, Catholics, Lutherans, Jews, and others. The kind of schooling for boys was longer then the girls. They boys went to "dame" school, grammer school, and then to college. Girls trained at home and learned house-hold chores. People should know that Pennsylvania is combination of the founder William Penn and Sylvania which means woodland.
