The hard land to live on by Nicholas Romba


It was the rough time coming over here but will it pay off in this town? There were 102 pilgrims on the may flower. It took 2 years to get to Plymouth. The normal speed was 2.67 mile per hour. All the homes are made out of hay. The houses are close together and small. You are able to have one bath. You can not work on Sundays because it is God's day. Some chores were making clothes and hunting and fishing. Over all Plymouth colony succeeded by growing crops, building homes and hunting. Plymouth survived the rough journey and still exists today.

The Voyage

The voyage was the tough part coming over so I will tell you about it. The May Flower was built in 1620 the boat was made out of wood. There was 102 passengers most of them died they had to stay on the lower deck and had to empty there own waste. The boat was 108 tons, during the voyage one beam broke so they had to hold the beam in place, until they made it to the new land to fix the beam. Over all the ship made it there safely.


You will probable want to know about the homes so I will tell you about them. the homes weren't like now they were very small and not big but they could live in them.The homes had mud walls and some times hay or wood. Most likely the roofs were made out of hay. The roof was good to keep the rain out. The homes were close together and there were not much room to play. So that is about a normal house.


Last you need to know is about daily living. On Sundays you could not work at all or laugh because it was gods day and you had to go to a meeting house. Most of there food came from the lake or woods and you could not just walk right into a store and buy food you had to work for food.All the clothes came from skins came from animals so that is about clothes. So that is about daily living


So like I told you in the beginning it was a rough coming over and yes, yes it did pay off in that little town.
