The Colonial Period
"...most dismal wretches, who said their prayers before daylight, and then wrought in the forest or the cornfield till evening made it prayer time again."
The period in America from around 1607-1763 where just about everyone was a Puritan Pilgrim and had to attend church services that were approximately 11 days long. Everyone wore black all the time; the men all carried blunderbusses and wore tall hats with big buckles around themnote , while the women all wore bonnets and square linen collars with optional large red A's. note 

The women were all called "Goody Somethingorother" note  and were frequently burned at the stake as witches. Occupations among the men, besides the aforementioned prayer and witch-burning, included persecuting Quakers, oppressing Native Americans, being scalped, and hunting turkeys for the first Thanksgiving Day dinner.
