The pilgrims left England. They had planned to land in Jamestown, but they were caught in a storm and blown off course. They ended up in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The pilgrims decided to settle and name it Plymouth. The biggest disadvantage is that Plymouth had rocky soil.
I think she has a point, it is cold, and what if there isn't a settlement here? Did we end up in the wrong place?
Um... new plan, we are making our own settlement and it will be named Plymouth.
It's cold, where are we??
The pilgrims got a Charter to go to Jamestown. They got on the ship Mayflower in September. They ended up in Massachusetts, and they set up a government of their own called the Mayflower Compact. Part of their government was to have Town Meetings.
TOWN MEETING TODAY!!!
A few ways that Plymouth made money was through a small farm, fishing, whaling, and timber. They were not able to do cash crops due to the rocky soil.
I'm going fishing!
Pilgrims and Puritans were separatists from the Church of England. If they had stayed in England they would have religious persecution.
We are all separatists
We came here for religious freedom
I'm a pilgrim
I'm a Puritian
A major difference between Plymouth and Jamestown was economic differences. While Jamestown had fertile soil to grow tobacco as a cash crop, Plymouth did not. Plymouth had rocky soil and harsh winters, in return Plymouth made money by whaling, timber and fishing. They had small farms to grow food for their families. Another major difference would be that Plymouth were friends with their neighboring indians, they even hd thanksgiving together, unlike Jamestown. Jamestown did not get along with the indians. Jamestown mainly came to the new world for economical reasons, where as Plymouth came for more religious and social reasons.
