Ah yes. The history of the United States.
Rhode Island was founded by Roger Smith and other individuals who had been tossed out of the Massachussetts Bay colony because their religious beliefs did not coincide with those of the dominant majority in Massachussetts. Oh, and did I mention this happened in the middle of a New England winter?
Rhode Island was thus a little touchy on the subject of freedom of religion when it came time to ratify the US Constitution, and they refused to sign until and unless the Bill of Rights was approved at the same time, including freedom to practice whatever religion any citizen wanted.
Rhode Island is home to the oldest synagogue in North America.
It's Roger Williams... And he wasn't tossed out he ran for his life before he was "deported" to England...
The rest from my knowledge is Correct...
