A storm blew the Pilgrims off-course and instead of landing in Virginia, they ended up farther north in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. They settled in this area and called it Plymouth. Though Jamestown had fertile soil, Plymouth soil was rocky soil.
The Virginia Company gave the Pilgrims a charter to settle in Virginia, though it became invalid because a storm blew course and changed the landing. Since there was no form of government, the men aboard the Mayflower wrote and signed a plan of government called the Mayflower Compact.
How would you compare and contrast Jamestown and Plymouth?
Since the soil in the New England area was rocky, the settlers created their economy by turning to their environment. Fishing, whaling, and timber industries became the stable economy.
The Puritans practiced strict forms of religion which led to teenage girls creating and spreading fictional stories and lean away from the strict practices of their religion. 20 people experienced religious persecution for the accusation of being a witch and developed its name- the Salem Witch Trials.
I'm not a witch!!
Jamestown and Plymouth were both English settlements, but only Plymouth had men, children, and women. Jamestown colonized for land, and Plymouth colonized for religion. Jamestown also had fertile soil but Plymouth had rocky soil. Both colonies had servants.
