In fall of 1621 the pilgrams shared a harvest feast with the Pokanokets. That first meal is now considered Thanksgiving. The males signed the Mayflower Compact.

There was a disease that caused the Plymouth travelers to die during the first winter. That desease was called Malaria. The travelers got Malaria while going to the Americas.

In 1620 they boarded the Mayflower on their way to the Americas.The colonist boarded the Mayflower to find a way to America to find gold in the month of July. Then two months after that they arrived in Massachusetts. After America declared independence from Britian. There were about forty or more passengers on the Mayflower. The mayflower compact was an agreement signed by the pilgrams.
