PILGRIMS LEFT ENGLAND ON THIS DAY IN 1620

What Indian Tribes Interacted With the Pilgrims?thumbnail

The Pilgrims set sail from Plymouth, England (above) aboard the "Mayflower”
on September 6, 1620. After a grueling 66-day journey across the Atlantic
marked by disease, which claimed two lives, the ship, with 102 passengers
and a crew of 25-30, dropped anchor near the tip of Cape Cod on November
11th where the Pilgrims began settling Plymouth Colony, the first English
colony in what would become Massachusetts.
