On this day in 1701, the Carolina Assembly passed the Vestry Act of 1701, making the Church of England the official religion of the Carolina colony. Active opposition by Quakers and other religious Nonconformists who lived there ultimately convinced the proprietors of the colony to revoke the act in 1703.
