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.

New York (AP) – John Lennon’s iconic round glasses and shaggy 1970s mane
will now adorn a U.S. stamp.

Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, and their son, Sean Lennon, were in New York
City’s Central Park Friday to celebrate the U.S. Postal Service’s release of
a stamp honoring the late Beatle. Hundreds of Beatles fans gathered for the
event. The former Beatle was assassinated on December 8, 1980.
