Anne Hutchinson was a famous woman at the time when colonies in the New England area were being created. She was known for expressing her opinions and saying that God spoke to her. She didn't found the colony of Maine because Maine wasn't even one of the original thirteen colonies and she definitely wasn't friends with Pocahontas or a government official. Anne Hutchinson was a woman who discussed and often questioned the teachings of the minister by voicing her persuasive opinion.
