With a slam, the prison door locked, and William Penn was back inside the dark, damp English prison. After growing up the son of a wealthy and respected admiral, William had done what was forbidden in England during the seventeenth century -- he openly practiced the Quaker religion. William dreamed of a place where people could establish their own government and freely practice their religion. He asked the king for land in the New World, and the king gave him a colony called Pennsylvania, named after William's father. William's struggles to create a new and just government were so successful that just a few decades later his blueprint for Pennsylvania became a model for thirteen newly independent colonies.
