The Mayflower

Hearing the story of the Pilgrim's and their trip on the Mayflower helped me to appreciate what these people must have went through to make their journey. Over 100 people were crammed into the bottom of a small merchant ship for 66 days at sea. They were not allowed on deck; no fires could be lit for light or heat, it was stale air and darkness for over two months. What great sacrfice and determination those early pilgrims had!
