FACT: Pilgrims discover the Native Americans’

corn and beans stored inside their houses. The

Pilgrims take the food and consequently do not

starve

How does Bradford interpret the Pilgrims’ discovery of

the Native Americans’ corn and beans and what does

this tell you of his beliefs?

Bradford believes that God led them to find the

food in order to save them from starving.

Bradford believes that God plays an active role

in their daily lives.


The first encounter1

The First Encounter

“Thus it pleased God to vanquish their enemies

[Indians]and give them [Pilgrims] deliverance;

and by His special providence so to dispose that

not any one of them [Pilgrims] were either hurt

or hit…”


The first encounter2

The First Encounter

Sounds like not only did God give them

permission to shoot their muskats at the Native

Americans, but did them a special favor, seeing

to it that no Pilgrims were harmed by Natives.

named…willingly and cheerfully…showing herein true love unto their friends.”
