Early American Rebels

This chapter describes the events of 1650s Maryland, including the Battle of the Severn. Cromwell ended censorship and radical ideas, and theologies spread, with Quakers questioning inherited status. In Maryland, at first, Puritans fought against Josias Fendall and Thomas Gerard. Gradually they realized their common goals and organized another attempt to establish a republican commonwealth. The Assembly overthrew Lord Baltimore and his Council. But the rebellion ended with the Restoration of King Charles II. The Calvert family took back power. One of the rebels, John Jenkins, escaped.
