You have all heard the story of the Pilgrims coming to America, right?  Well, of course that was not the only story to tell.  In 1634, several years after the Pilgrims arrived, a young woman by the name of Anne Hutchinson sailed from England in hopes of a new life.  But what she found was a place where the minister's voice shouted to everyone to hear.  His rules for the colony were very different from what Anne was raised to believe.  So Anne started talking to people and telling them about a kind, forgiving God -- not the vengeful one that the minister spoke of.  But in 1634, women were not allowed to preach and the idea of free speech did not include Anne talking against the minister.
