We the Pilgrims should go to our own land. We need Self Governement!!
What are we going to do??
We the pilgrims need our own rights so we will sign a contract called the Mayflower Compact to obey our own rights.
I guess it's an I for me too.
Who ever agrees say I which means the pilgrims will have their own rights, and self government.
I can be friends with anyone I want.
