DEPARTURE FROM ENGLAND ON THIS DAY IN 1620

The Mayflower sails from Plymouth, England, bound for the New World with
102 passengers. The ship was headed for
Virginia, where the colonists–half religious dissenters and half entrepreneurs–had been authorized to settle by
the British crown. However, stormy weather and navigational errors forced
the Mayflower off course, and on November 21 the “Pilgrims” reached
Massachusetts, where they built the first permanent European settlement
in New England in late December.

After decades of bloody animosity, representatives of Israel and Palestine
meet on the South Lawn of the
White House and sign a framework for
peace. The “Declaration of Principles” was the first agreement between
the Israelis and Palestinians towards ending their conflict and sharing
the holy land between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea that
they both claim as their homeland.

Israel and Palestine signed their first major agreement. Palestine was
granted limited self-government in the Gaza Strip and in Jericho.
