The Mayflower was made and signed by pilgrims in November, 1620. It was also the first self government in the original 13 colonies.
As the people from the mayflower arrived they arrived in london's territorty. The people started to get worried about rules and whom were there leaders. So they established a self government but still under great Britians rules.
The mayflower compact to me helped us fight for our rights and know what's right or wrong.
