Abstract
The Puritans were the first family settlement in America that attempted to structure a perfect society. It was about 1630 that the Puritans settled in Bay, Massachusetts. They came mainly from England looking for an opportunity to start a new life, one without insurrection, crime, vice and unrest. There were mostly laboring, skilled and semiskilled people. There is no record that shows education as having a major factor in the migration of the Puritans to the United States. Today we look back upon the Puritans as a social experiment, that dominated a way of life that was common to all of that era. To start out as a community, there were only Caucasians in that Blacks were known to have come later as slaves to America under Puritan rule. There were, however, single men and women who were known as single indentured persons.
