The Mayflower Compact

The Mayflower Compact

The Mayflower Compact was the first governing document of Plymouth Colony. It was written by the male passengers of the Mayflower, consisting of separatist Congregationalists who called themselves "Saints", and adventurers and tradesmen, most of whom were referred to by the Separatists as "Strangers". Later both groups were referred to as Pilgrims or Pilgrim Fathers. The Separatists were fleeing from religious persecution by King James of England.\n<br><br>\n<i><u>Pilgrims & the Mayflower Compact (Text 2)</u> -- This text is part of a Primary Source Set exploring why Pilgrims emigrated to America and the difficulties they encountered during and after their journey.
