Pilgrim and Puritan's Journey Avery Salvatori Period: 3
The pilgrims were looking for religious freedoms, so they sailed on the Mayflower to Jamestown. But instead they landed in Plymouth.The pilgrims were led by William Bradford. Later many more puritans came to Plymouth in the Great Migration. When the pilgrims survived their first winter the indians taught them how to grow crops, so they had the first Thanksgiving.
The pilgrims and puritans left England for religious reasons. But the pilgrims got their charter from the Virginia Company, and the puritans got it from the Massachusetts Bay Company. The pilgrims government was the Mayflower Compact, which meant that the men had to have town meetings to creat the laws. The puritans created the New England Way, which was where they work, pray, and read the bible. They had a very strict form of government, and religion.
The pilgrims were on there way to Jamestown when a storm hit them and knocked there ship ofcorse. So instead they landed fruther north in Massachuttets Cape Cod. Unlike Jamestown, Plymouth was on the coast so the land had very rocky soil.
Due to the rocky soil and cold winters, Plymouth had to find different sources of revenue. Whaling, timber, and fishing were their major sources of revenue. Most crops didn't grow good in the soil but the settlers learned to grow subsistence crops. Since they only grew a little of food there were a few small farms.
Jamestown was established for eceonomic reasons; to find gold and silver. But Plymouth was established for religious freedoms by the Pilgrims and the Puritans. The first round of settlers for Jamestown were all men and Plymouth's were families. They both set up their own government; both representative government. The Mayflower Compact was Plymouth's government and the House of Burgesses was Jamestown's government. Jamestown had very fertile soil so their number one source of revenue became Tabacco beause of Jhon Rolfe. When Plymouth's soil was very rocky so they couldn't farm many crops. So their sources of revenue were whaling, timber, and fishing. They were both settelments for England, but Jamestown was England's first perminant settelment.
