from Sarah's book so far:
- There were two separate types of Puritans: Separatists and Non-separatists. The Mayflower ones were trying to distance themselves from the King of England.
- Puritans stressed the importance of education and learning and were prolific writers.
- All I know about American history really comes from 1970's sitcoms. She actually describes specific episodes of various shows and, sadly, I've seen them. We watched entirely too much crap TV when we were young.
