Answer:

Religious Freedom

Explanation:

While the New England colonies had been founded to provide religious freedom to the puritans the New England colonies did not provide religious freedom to other groups.

Rhode Island was founded by Ana Baptist groups that had been expelled from the older New England colonies for not adhering to the religious beliefs of the majority.

The Royal colonies of Virginia, North and South Carolina and Georgia had the Anglican Religion as the official established religion.

Maryland though founded as a refuge for persecuted Catholics in its charter provided religious freedom to other groups.
