Mayflower Day | September 16, 1620

Today is Mayflower Day.
Mayflower Day celebrates the date the Mayflower sailed from Plymouth, England to soon to become America. On September 16, 1620, 102 men, women, and children set sail from Plymouth, England. Their destination was the settlement in Virginia, where they could have religious freedom, and continue using their native language, culture, and customs. Every Mayflower Day, we commemorate these brave, early settlers. They were the very first immigrants, and helped to pave the way for millions more to follow, in search of freedom and the dreams and promises of a New World.
