Bradford and Morton I have lived my entire life here in New Hampshire and upon my thinking about it I am amazed that I live so close to history I am but two hours away from a controversy that occurred four hundred years ago And it is from this beginning that the great United States of America grew I laugh out loud is this not true Our founding fathers were nothing more than a few ambitious sinners with their own dreams and desires not much different than the generations today The pilgrims came desiring religious freedom and with a noble vision of building such a community of Christians that they would be known as a City upon a Hill a light to the lost However they all did not come with a common dream as we see in these writing of Thomas Morton and William Bradford Unlike the pilgrims who came for political reason it seem that Morton may have been sent over because of his ill behavior I can imagine that he may have got himself into trouble and the judge part pardons part punishes him by sending him to break in the new territory in America I do not know if this is true but it makes sense in light of the comment that was made that Morton had left his country for his countrys good Morton also makes the comment that though Morton is a well educated man he has a tendency to get into fights and lawsuits Of Plymouth Plantation pp 226 Mortons plans for Merry-mount seem to consist of nothing more than the indulgence of the profane and self gratification Morton himself writes Then drink and be merry merry merry boys Let all you delight be in Hymens joys New English Canaan pp277-81 Bradford talks about Morton and his men as leading a dissolute life pouring out themselves into all profaneness Of Plymouth Plantation
