Pennsylvania was one of the colonies to make the most significant contributions to the perennial American values of democratic self government, educational opportunity, religious toleration, social plurality, and economic materialism. There was a constitution called “Frame of Government” that was made to give Pennsylvania the most liberal government of the colonies. This helped slaves to be freed in chosen, a treaty to help be civil with the Natives, religious freedom, and make this colony all equal men to live. This not only helped for the people to get along, but the colony to come together and become the greatest colony they can be. The only problem was the social plurality that their was many different religious groups around which was mainly the Quakers and Puritans.
He ends his discourse with a dedication to let freedom ring today, as he beautifully recites the words to one of our nation’s greatest songs of liberty and justice.

They will dedicate themselves to their birthplace, their home. The person will be dedicated in fixing any faults that the country may have.

Not only were the eyes and hearts of the Dominican people opened but as were ours. Experiencing the word of Christ in a different language was very interesting and challenging at times but did not stop any of us from attempting to break the language barrier in any way we could.
Comparing the Latin American Wars of Independence and the Haitian Revolution The Haitian Revolution took place in 1791 through 1804.
