Transcript of Michelle and Hannah
Pilgrims (led by William Bradford) - We are a group of English Separatists who took part in the First Harvest celebration (otherwise known as Thanksgiving!)
Puritans (led by John Winthrop) - We are a group of English Reformed Protestants
A Brief Colonial History
In the early 1600s religious tensions in England began to build. As a result, in 1620 about 50 Separatists set sail on the Mayflower to America. The Pilgrims hoped to build their perfect vision for a society in the New World. In 1621, after many difficult months the Pilgrims invited the Native Americans to a feast now known as the First Thanksgiving.
Groups of People
Massachusetts is proud to support a crop and livestock based economy. We also specialize in lumber and shipping services.
Puritans - We wish to simplify and regulate worship, we do not support the English Church's Reformation. Also, we firmly believe that every individual should be educated so that they can read the Bible without depending soley on the word of a Priest.

A group of friendly and motivated puritans moved to our great colony of Massachusetts to escape religious persecution in Protestant England.
Puritans - We are non-Separatists who believe the Anglican Church needs to be purified of the influences of Catholicism
Pilgrims - English Separatists who founded Plymouth, some of us even met Christopher Columbus on the Mayflower!
Farmers - You'll never starve here because of our great group of experienced and innovative farmers
A Breif Colonial History Contnued
Ten years later, (in 1631) a large group of Puritans set off after the Pilgrims to the Americas with a charter from the King to found the colony of Massachusetts Bay. The charter granted them the right to govern themselves. Their governor John Winthrop once said, "We must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill." When Winthrop said this he was expresdsion that the colony of Massachusetts Bay was to be an example, a trend setter and would have major influences on the cultures and government of future colonies in North America.
