About this video

Continuing the discussion on early colonial history, Ralph D. Anske turns his attention to Pennsylvania. Anske describes the founding of this colony by William Penn in the 1680s and describes important differences with the earlier colonies in Virginia and New England. The predominantly Quaker settlers to Pennsylvania were both religiously tolerant and antislavery. Anske also discusses immigration from other European countries and the role of indentured servitude in the colony's economic development.
