Molly's Dream

What dreams did Molly have?

She wanted to be exactly like Mrs. Simmons because of all of her skills in samplers and sewing. Also intelligence and because Mrs. Simmons has her own business. Molly wants a cottage right next to a pond with ducks and geese and maybe a little dog. She also wanted her family to be whole again.

What will she need to do to make her dreams come true?

Start her own business be a seamstress after her indenture. So she can make money to build a cottage near a pond and maybe get the family back together again.

A New Kind Of Freedom

What convinced Johann to move to America?

When Pastor Vogel told Johann about how much land they would have when they moved (which is 50 acres per person, altogether 450 acres) to America. If they stayed in Germany the Duke's cavalry will be arrested.

How did he feel about the decision?

When he grow the crops back in Germany he started to plant other things like Indian corn, fruit, and wheat (which became very valuable) so they planted more of it. He felt happy and proud to be a Pennsylvanian.


Now what do I know?

Most people came from Great Britain because they believed in different things and America religious enforcements so they moved there. But the African Americans were slaves until the Civil War ended 1865 after the Union won (The Northern states).

What do I know.

Why do people move?

Today most people move because of jobs and schools. I think that back in the day of the pilgrim age they moved because of weather, earth, source of water and to find the plains. The plains because it's easier to grow plants and crops. Most plains have a river/stream near by, so there's water, fish and maybe some other sea animals.

What do we do when people don't think, act or speak the same way we do?

We sometimes talk about it and reason with it. If the problem is religion then if the country is against a small population that are fugitives may have to move like the Pilgrims. Pilgrims were in Europe they were persecuted because they believed in something else and that's how the ended up in North America. Some start wars which don't turn out good on both sides. Like in World War 2 Hitler caused the Holocaust where all the Jews had died and so did Hitler. Religious persecution has been going on since the starting of man kind.
