9 of the original 13 U.S. states had official religions prior to
independence: Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire were
Puritan; Georgia, Maryland, New York, North and South Carolina, and
Virginia were Anglican.  Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Rhode
Island had no established religion. The last state to disestablish was
Massachusetts, in 1833.
