Flushing has long been famous for the Flushing Remonstrance, and its role as a landmark event in religious freedom in the early Americas. But The Flushing Remonstrance is only a small portion of the long journey to religious freedom in the United States! In this Digital Visit lecture, we will go over the story of how religious tolerance came about in Queens and New York during the colonial period and the lead up to its enshrining in the Constitution.
