Description
John Clarke and His Legacies is the first full-length biography of John Clarke (1609-1676), a principal founder of colonial Rhode Island. Although Roger Williams usually gets most of the attention, Sydney James shows that Clarke made a lasting contribution to the colony. Williams was the first Baptist minister in America, but he left his church after a very short time, and the charter he won for the colony in 1644 soon had to be replaced. Clarke, however, founded the first Baptist church in Newport, where he continued to contribute to the Baptist community until his death. And in 1663 he procured the royal charter that would remain the foundation of government in Rhode Island until 1842.
