The First American Refugees


…were the immigrants now known as Native Americans or First Nations or Redskins or whatever. The first from Europe were the Pilgrims.

You did everything their way or they strapped you to a wagon and horse-whipped your ass out of town. Their intolerance played a large part in the addition of the Establishment Clause to the Constitution. Each colony wanted its religion to be the new official state religion like in England and so blah blah blah and blah.
