The period in America from around 1607-1763 where just about everyone was a Puritan Pilgrim and had to attend church services that were approximately 11 days long. Everyone wore black all the time; the men all carried blunderbusses and wore tall hats with big buckles around them, while the women all wore bonnets and square linen collars with optional large red A's .
The women were all called "Goody Somethingorother" and were frequently burned at the stake as witches. Occupations among the men, besides the aforementioned prayer and witch-burning, included persecuting Quakers, oppressing Native Americans, being scalped, and hunting turkeys for the first Thanksgiving Day dinner.
