  • Pilgrims separating from the Church of England and go to Holland 
  • The voyage of the Mayflower to Plymouth
  • The Mayflower Compact (1620) 
  • The people that separated from the church of England and went to Holland are called separatists.They did this because King Henry finally decided to break away from the Roman catholic church causing many people to follow him to the new Angelican church he had made.But,many people also dissented,disagreed,with his choices and chose to stay in the Roman Catholic church.There was also the puritans that wanted to reform the Angelican church.
  • The First Winter (1620-1621) 
  • The Mayflower drifted off course on its journey across the Atlantic. The first land the Pilgrims sighted was Cape Cod, well north of their target. It was November, and winter was fast approaching. The colonists decided to drop anchor in Cape Cod Bay. They went ashore on a cold, bleak day in December at a place they called Plymouth.
  • Squanto helps the Pilgrims 
  • This document set up an organized, orderly government. Each signer promised to obey the laws passed “for the general good of the colony." The Mayflower Compact was a key step in the development of representative, democratic government in America.
  • The “First Thanksgiving” (Harvest Celebration) 
  • During the first winter in America,almost half of the Pilgrims died. Illness,hunger,and cold took a terrible toll.
  • In the spring,after the first winter,two native Americans befriended the colonists and taught the Pilgrims to live in their new environment.They taught the pilgrims to grow crops and showed the colonists where to hunt and fish.Without their help,the pilgrims might not have survived.
  • For many Americans, the Thanksgiving meal includes seasonal dishes such as roast turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. The holiday feast dates back to November 1621, when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth for an autumn harvest celebration, an event regarded as America’s “first Thanksgiving.
