William Penn and the Quaker Legacy
The Frame of Government has lasting historical importance as an important step in the development of American and world democracy. William Penn, as an English Quaker , sought to construct a new type of Community with religious toleration and a great deal of political freedom. Although his authorship of the Concession is questioned, it is believed that he gave his full consent to it as the trustee of that colony. In the Concession, all legislative power was granted to an assembly selected by the "inhabitants, freeholders and proprietors" of the colony. A commission was to be appointed by the assembly as its executive. The government structure in West Jersey demonstrated the enlightened constitutional theory that Penn had been promoting.
The massacres of Indians in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, by the Paxton Boys in December , have long been a notorious event in that part of the globe. Indeed his fame contrasts sharply with the impossibility of establishing much about even the leaders of the Paxton Boys. Another reason for the fascination is surely the cold-blooded nature of the killings.

Thirteen Colonies and New England
Penn was part of the Quakers and created Pennsylvania as a neo-European settlement with economic and social systems similar to Europe, and as a refuge. Delaware developed with far greater political, ethnic, religious, and social diversity, and they represented a more cosmopolitan middle ground between the tightly knit New England towns and the scattered, hierarchical plantation in the South.
