The Puritans who came to New England in the seventeenth century erected in the wilderness one of the great foundation blocks of the American character. Descendants of these first settlers have carried traits of the Puritan mind into a variety of pursuits and all the way across the continent. Without some understanding of Puritanism, and that at its source, there is no understanding of America.
