* Anglican

The Church of England, or the Anglican church, was established in the New World by the English government. Because England claimed rights to the land in the New World, they could mandate that all colonies have an Anglican church. The Church was therefore established in all thirteen of the original colonies. It is interesting to note, however, that all colonies except Virginia allowed for some freedom of religious practice.
