Did The Pilgrim Fathers Wear Black And Eat Turkey?
It seems like most of us take it as a given that the Pilgrim Fathers wore lots of buckles, were deeply religious, hated sex and landed on Plymouth Rock etc. but how much of this stuff is real and how much is myth?
When Did The Pilgrims First Settle?
"Pilgrims" is a name commonly applied to early settlers of the Plymouth Colony in present-day Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States, with the men commonly called Pilgrim Fathers.
The Pilgrims’ leadership came from the religious congregations of Brownist English Dissenters who had fled the volatile political environment in England for the relative calm and tolerance of 16th–17th century Holland in the Netherlands.
Their first English settlement was established in Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607 and the second one was established in what is now present-day Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620.
