The Pilgrims lived in England
King James said he would put them in prison if they did not go to his Church.
In 1620 they decided to go the New World. They bought a ship called the speedwell. It was not big enough so they bought another boat the Mayflower. The Speedwell sprung a leak so all 102 passengers had to crowd on to the Mayflower.
They boarded the Mayflower and started the 66 day Voyage to the New World.
Finally the main beam broke and they thought they would have to turn back, but they were able to fix it using a jack made to lift house. It worked so they continued the Journey. Finally after 66 days they reached land. Many of the passengers were sick and could not stand. The ones who could went ashore and explored the land. It was winter time. They did not know the land and it was cold. They had no house to take shelter in.Things looked bleak for the Pilgrims survival.
