400 Years ago today the Mayflower passengers disembarked

Updated: Feb 3

On this day four-hundred years ago, December 12, 1620, our pilgrim ancestors were finally able to leave the Mayflower. After a voyage of 66 days and weeks docked in the harbor, the passengers finally came off the ship to pursue their new lives in America. They were mourning the losses they suffered along the way and were undoubtedly cold, hungry, and weary.

Today when we take trips, we have accommodations awaiting us. Transportation and accommodations are made to ensure our comfort upon arrival. The pilgrims had no physical comforts but they had two greater comforts: their faith and their new found freedom.
