This collection of documents introduces the reader to efforts of Americans over the past 350 years to practice and observe their religious beliefs -- along with the writings of those who would deny them those rights. Included are excerpts regarding Roger Williams, the Jews who found safe haven in Rhode Island, the Quakers, Native Americans, Jehovah's Witnesses, our first Catholic president, Black Muslims, and more. Key court cases are also documented. The excerpts cover the years from 1640 to 1992.
