es necessary to give a brief sketch of the antecedents of the people who bear the most conspicuous part.These early pioneers belonged to a Sect too well known to have a detailed narration of their founder, faith, method of living, etc. Given here.The main point of distinction from other Protestant bodies was the objection to military service and abhorrence of warfare and military life, the taking of Judicial Oaths, and Baptism of Infants.This Sect (mennonites) being persecuted by the different state parties of Europe, found a refuge in America. The first of their doctrine, after being requested by the ever-to-be-renowned William Penn to settle within his colony, came in 1683 and settled in Germantown, where they proved to be a religious, law-abiding and prosperous people.Here the name Pennsylvania Dutch was first given them, a term applied as a distinction rather than one of disrespect.These people branched out over various counties of Pennsylvania, and other colonies but they retained their peculiar theories as stated above and their exclusiveness from all worldly society.The outbreak of'the American revolution caused a somewhat lack of harmony among these people. Some sympathized with the British and for conscience's sake could not justify the doings of the colonial party, while others (american born) were strongly advocating in favor of the independence of the thirteen colonies.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
