Happy Mayflower Day! On this day in 1620, the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, England, carrying the first Pilgrims to the New World. Two months later they arrived in America, got off the ship and...celebrated Thanksgiving, possibly? No, wait, first they planted corn. Or they planted fish. Hang on, that can’t be right. Anyway, Squanto was there, and they definitely had Thanksgiving, and if I’m remembering my history classes right they pretty much just killed time for a century and a half until George Washington showed up.
