Ethan Allen is born in Connecticut Colony. Allen will become best known for his involvement with the American Revolution, but he also becomes an important freethinker in colonial America.

In 1785 Ethan Allen publishes the book Reason: the Only Oracle of Man in which he criticizes religion generally, Christianity in particular, the Bible, churches, priests, creeds, and everything associated with religion. In his book Allen argues on behalf of a combination of naturalism, deism, and secularism.
