Chapter 11: Keeping the Faith on the Frontier

Introduction

Settlers came to Iowa from other parts of America and from Europe, where they had been members of many different churches. Some belonged to no church at all. With such different religious beliefs and customs, there might have been tensions and struggles, but for the most part, disagreements were settled peacefully. Churches became an important part of Iowa life.
