Harvard College was originally set up as a seminary to train future preachers and eventually expanded to become one of the world’s most respected institutions for learning in regard to science, medicine, law, business, and even still today, theology. By the time the American Revolution began in 1775, there were eight colleges operating in the colonies, including what would become Columbia, Yale, and Princeton universities.
