Seeking religious Freedom, the Pilgrims lacked the wealth to settle elsewhere in Europe, America offered an unique opportunity for them. They contributed to population growth and the settlement of numerous settlements patterned after English villages. Their experiences in England made them value freedom of speech and know the importance of allowing everyone to have a say in how the government is run.
