TRUTH !!
Members of the religious movement known as the Religious Society of Friends,
or the Quakers, began moving to the north east of the United States from the
late 1600s. This had a two-fold purpose, the first of which was to find a
more tolerant environment in which they could practice their faith. The
second major reason for that immigration was in seeking a new life with more
opportunities for economic prosperity. Along with their arrival in this new
land came their knowledge on how to make ice cream - and, because this skill
has since been turned into something approaching a gastronomical art form in
that country, Americans have been thanking them ever since. Such was its
popularity even in its early days in the United States that many of the
Founding Fathers of that great nation, such as George Washington, Thomas
Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, have gone on record as regularly delighting
in same.
