During the Colonial Period in America's history, religion played an essential role. Religion informed every aspect of the colonists' lives, from birth to death and presumably beyond. Religion also provided the main reason for many of the colonists' presence in the New World, as many had arrived just so that they could practice their religious faith freely.
