1620-1629

Colonizing in Plymouth

Dear Future Generation,

Without this decade of 1620 to 1629, you would not have America's Hometown or the spark of American Culture. The ship, Mayflower sent us, Angelicans and Separtists, to the New World for religious freedom. We were only dressed like so in the picture above. As a big equal family, we, the Separtists, wrote the Mayflower Compact, crowding each other in the ship, for the first self-governing document. After John Carver died, William Bradford became our governor numerously. He recorded the lives of the pilgrims in journal entries, which became Of Plymouth Plantation. Bradford later developed a major event where we gave thanks by a feast with the Native Americans, also known as Thanksgiving, one of the most celebrated holidays until today in United States.
