1620

Pilgrims and the Mayflower

slide6
The Pilgrims who sailed on the Mayflower were members of a church. Seeking a better life, they negotiated with a London stock company to finance the voyage to America.
slide7
Most of those aboard the Mayflower were hired to protect the company’s interests. Only about one-third of the original colonists were Puritans.
slide8
The Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock on December 11, 1620. By fall, they had lost 46 of the 102 people who sailed on the Mayflower.

The First Thanksgiving

1621

Pilgrims and the Mayflower

slide10
In 1621, the remaining colonists decided to have a feast to celebrate their first harvest. The celebration included 91 Indians who had helped the Pilgrims survive. The Pilgrims would not have lived through the year without their help.
slide11
The feast was a traditional English harvest festival that lasted three days. We don’t know if they ate turkey since “turkey” meant any kind of fowl at that time. We do know they didn’t eat pumpkin pie. They ate boiled pumpkin and made fried bread from corn.
slide12
There was also no milk or butter, since there were no cattle for dairy products. And because the newly discovered potato was thought to be poisonous, they ate no potatoes. The rest of the menu was made up of fish, berries, watercress, lobster, dried fruit, clams, venison, and plums.
