Why did the Puritans come to the US?
November 16, 2009 10:38PM
The Puritans came to the US to escape religious persecution in
Europe. They left England, many going to Holland so that they could
worship in their way instead of that of the Church of England. In
Holland, persecution from the Catholics eventually led to their
immigration to the Colonies to allow them religious freedom.
