Discover the names and motivations of passengers who sailed on the Mayflower.
In 1620, the sailing vessel Mayflower set sail from England carrying farmers, merchants, and English Puritan Separatists searching for a new land where they could worship as they wished. The voyage to the new world took 66 days and ended when the ship anchored near what is now Provincetown, Massachusetts. The citizens of Plymouth Colony, now known as Pilgrims, faced many struggles as they settled the land. With hard work, determination, and much suffering, these brave individuals set a foundation for what is now the United States of America.

The cargo hold is where the Pilgrims stored their cargo, which consisted of biscuits, salt, dried beef, salted pork, oats, peas, beer, wheat, clothing, canvas sheets filled with straw for bedding, pots, pans, utensils, and tools for building and farming.

The gun deck is where the cannons were located. On merchant ships, this deck was also used to hold additional cargo, which often included human cargo, meaning that the ship’s passengers lived here day in and day out. All 102 passengers on the Mayflower’s journey to the new world lived in this cramped 58-foot by 24-foot space, with very little privacy and only occasional opportunities to venture to the top deck to enjoy the sunshine and fair weather.
