Narrative poem about Anne Hutchinson, credited by some observers as the first American woman to lead the public fight for religious diversity and female equality. Eleanor Roosevelt was a particular admirer of Hutchinson, a member of the Massachusetts Bay Colony who got in trouble for holding religious meetings in her home, where many fellow colonists (including women) gathered to discuss the Bible. She was outspoken in expressing her dissent from the religious views of the Puritan leaders, and in 1837 she was tried for heresy and subsequently banished from the Colony and excommunicated from the church. Anne, her family, and about 60 of her followers relocated to Rhode Island, and following her husband's death moved to the Dutch colony at New York; she was killed by Mahican Indians in her home in 1643. .
