Why was it turned into a national park?

The Pilgrims were a small group of people who made a great impact on world history. Their story begins in England, sometime after King Henry VIII started the independent Church of England.Many people in England did not agree with his decision. Some wanted the church to be more like the old Catholic church. Others wanted it to be even more simple and to rely more on Bible teachings. Many people began to flee from England in search of new land to create a better life. The pilgrams faced some hardships coming to America but they eventually made it and then settled in Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
