On this day in 1620, the Mayflower docked at modern-day Plymouth, Massachusetts. Shortly after, the men, women and children started the new settlement of Plymouth Colony.
As we know now, the first winter was horrible and many died.
Before coming ashore, they signed The Mayflower Compact.
Eventually, many more came. In 1691, Plymouth was incorporated into the new Massachusetts Bay Association.
