Pilgrims and Puritans sailed to the New World on a ship called the Mayflower. Their expectation was to end up in Jamestown, a previous settlement, but ended up sailing much further north to a town they called Plymouth, when they got there they noticed the soil was rocky and there was snow, so It was hard to grow crops. Because of this, more then half of them died that winter.
Since Plymouth settlers did not end up sailing to Jamestown, which was funded off of tobacco, they had to make money off of what they had. Plymouth settlers had vey rocky soil so they had very small farms. They mainly made their money from the Massachusetts Bay Company, they were famous for wailing and fishing. They also lived off of substance farming & timber sales.
Jamestown: Jamestown was settled in 1607. when setttlers got there, the land was swampy and there were hostile Indians at aware. The settlers of Jamestown we all men, and mostly gentlemen (which means they don't do work). Settlers went through the starving times to the point they had to eat their own shoes. Soon after a tobacco seed was planted and Jamestown had a popular cash crop goldmine
Plymouth settlers did not want a government controlled by King Charles I, so they created their own. They created a such system that held town meetings and had the thing called 'city on the hill.' They also created documents such asa charter and the Mayflower Compact.
Pilgrims and Puritans wanted everyone to be pure (hints the name). Meaning they only wanted their religion, they were forced to only eat, go to church, read the bible, pray and sleep. Although they thought of this as religious freedom, it is what sparked the Salem Which Trials. Pilgrims were separists, which meant they separated from the church of England and the New England Way.
Im apparently a witch..
We love Jesus
Plymouth: Plymouth was settled in 1620. Settlers who came to Plymouth were women, children and men, because they were looking for colonization in Jamestown. Plymouth settlers had strict religion rules and only some survived the first winter. They made great relationships with native Americans (Indians) and had the first Thanksgiving.
