That's interesting, mike! I hadn't heard about the Boers being like the pilgrims before. Smile
And yes, that is correct. Most colonists were loyal and had affection for the mother country of England. As the king and parliament kept passing acts though that the colonists did not feel were fair, more colonists wanted independence than just the radicals.

Oh! Sorry! When I kept saying pilgrims, what I actually meant was separatists, the ones who started Plymouth in 1620. The puritans that I was referring to were the ones who came later in the 1620s in a much larger group and started the Massachusetts Bay Colony. I was just trying to say that separatists were generally more focused on the individual's heart before God instead of forcing people to do "righteous" things. The Puritans who started the Massachusetts Bay Colony merged church and state, which was a terrible idea.
