Author Bio

Isaac Backus (1724-1806), born in Norwich, Conn., was a Baptist leader in colonial America and a defender of religious freedom. He became a Christian in 1741 during the Great Awakening. He became a Baptist in 1751, founded a Baptist congregation at Middleboro, Mass. in 1756 and served as its pastor until his death. Backus was a noted proponent of “separation of church and state” and on this issue voted to ratify the U.S. Constitution at the Massachusetts ratifying convention in 1788. He died in Middleboro on Nov. 20, 1806.
