Plymouth Storyboard Lindy Godwin History PAP Period 8
SOCIAL- In late November of 1620 the pilgrims came to a place known as Plymouth, so that they could have religious freedom. They made it to Plymouth safely, but because of their timing most died in the harsh winter.
POlITICAL- Once the pilgrims separated from the King and the church, they took ship to Plymouth, and created a set of rules called the Mayflower Compact. This compact stated that that the men should consult with each other about laws and work together to help the success of the colony.
ECONOMY- Since the soil was very sandy the Pilgrims couldn't rely on tobacco to make its money. Instead they used the resources around them and worked in industries such as timber, fishing, and whaling. These industries proved very successful and became the stable economy of Plymouth.
GEOGRAPHY- The Pilgrims sailed all the way from England to Plymouth, which is off the coast of present day Massachusetts. The climate had very cold, harsh winters and rocky soil. The rocky soil meant that it could not grow food or cash crops for the settlers.
What is the difference between Jamestown and Plymouth? The difference between Jamestown and Plymouth is that Jamestown was created to make money for England and Plymouth was created so that the Pilgrims could have religious freedom. Jamestown made its money off of the cash crop tobacco, and Plymouth made its money off of fishing, timber, and whaling. In Jamestown only the men traveled to the settlement at first, but in Plymouth people came in families,meaning they came to stay permanently. These are just some of the few ways Jamestown and Plymouth are different from each other.
