George M. Bodge chronicles the wars with the Native Americans in the 17th century, with lists of the men who fought and died in conflicts ranging over decades. The American colonists originally... More > arrived in peace, with coastal villages and townships forming the initial foothold of the European settlers and migrants. Although the trading relationships established with certain Native American tribes strengthened the ties and friendship between the white settlers and natives, other tribes were suspicious and untrusting.

Samuel Ward was the distinguished Governor of the Colony of Rhode Island in the period leading up to the Revolutionary War, a cause he famously supported. An able and efficient administrator, Ward... More > would oversee Rhode Island during a period of both economic and social development. The overarching matter however would not be simple growth of the province: public opposition to the stamp taxation of the ruling British administration placed Ward in a difficult position – whether to enforce the measures enacted by the British rulers, or oppose them.

Summoned as a delegate to the Continental Congress in 1774, Ward died of smallpox mere months before hostilities commenced with the Declaration of Independence in 1776 – posthumously, his foreshadowing role and patriotism received praise among Americans.< Less

Sydney G. Fisher describes the arrival and settlement of the Quaker denomination in colonial North America during the 17th and 18th centuries. The initial chapter of Fisher’s work is enmeshed... More > with the establishment of the Quaker movement within the United Kingdom. Formed in opposition to the Puritan ideas, Quakerism formed in the wake of the chaos of the English Civil War. At the same time, colonists were encouraged to travel to North America, that Britain’s holdings be expanded and the new continent’s wealth be enjoyed by the settlers and the wider Empire. Second only to the Puritans in number, many Quakers departed England after suffering persecution – eager for a fresh start, thousands acted to bolster the settlements of Philadelphia, New Jersey and smaller towns on the Delaware river. They became traders and planters, and the presence of the Society of Friends in these cities is clear to behold to this day. The cover photograph of this edition is of a Quaker almshouse in Philadelphia, built in 1713.< Less
