The Mayflower is the name of the famous cargo ship that brought English and Dutch settlers to Plymouth , Massachusetts in 1620.  Although most of the 102 passengers and 30 crew survived the rough seas and a leaking, structurally damaged ship, almost half of the colonists, now known as the  Pilgrims, died the first winter.

The Mayflower set sail from Plymouth , England in September 1620.  The numerous storms caused passengers to doubt that the ship would be able to reach its destination.  The planned landing was to have been at the mouth of the Hudson River – the present-day location of  New York -  but bad weather made this landing impossible.  Cape Cod was sighted on November 9th and two days later, the Mayflower anchored at present-day Provincetown Harbour . 

It was at this first landing that the male passengers signed the famous agreement named the “Mayflower Compact”.  After a few weeks, the colonists decided to settle at present day Plymouth . 

The Plimoth Plantation Museum was started in 1947 in an effort to preserve the story of a new English colony at Plymouth.  It has grown considerably since then, and as of 1957, includes the Mayflower II.

Although the original Mayflower ship no longer exists, a full-scale reproduction of a late 16th century English merchant ship, the same size as the original Mayflower, was built in Devon, England, between 1955 and 1957.  Built according to descriptions and the logs of the original vessel, this replica is authentic subject to a few safety features.  It was presented to the peoples of America to commemorate the historical links between the two countries.  Coming from Plymouth, England, to Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1957, the Mayflower II sailed the same route as the first Mayflower

The images below are of the Mayflower II which is anchored at the State pier in downtown Plymouth as part of the Plimoth Plantation Museum in Massachusetts.  The ship is open to the public for visitation.

World Cultures

 

"People of 
different religions 
and cultures 
live side by side
 in almost every part|
of the world, 
and most of us have overlapping identities 
which unite us 
with very different groups.  
We can love what we are,
 without hating what 
- and who - 
we are not.  
We can thrive 
in our own tradition, 
even as we learn 
from others, 
and come to respect 
their teachings."

~Kofi Annan ~
former 
Secretary-General 
of the United Nations

 



 

"Preservation of 
one's own culture 
does not require
 contempt 
or disrespect
 for other cultures."

~ Cesar Chavez ~
American Activist 
and Labour Organizer.  
Founder of the National Farm Workers Association
(1927-1993)

 


 

 

"It is the mark 
of the cultured man 
that he is aware 
of the fact 
that equality 
is an ethical 
and not a biological principle."

~ Ashley Montagu ~
British-American anthropologist
1905 - 1999

 

 

"We may have 
different religions, 
different languages, 
different coloured skin, 
but we all belong 
to one human race."

~ Kofi Annan ~
Ghanian Diplomat, 
7th UN Secretary-General, 
2001 Nobel Peace Prize Winner

 

 

"We have 
the ability to achieve, 
if we master 
the necessary goodwill,
 a common global society 
blessed with a shared culture 
of peace 
that is nourished by 
the ethnic, 
national and 
local diversities
 that enrich our lives."

~ Mahnaz Afkhami ~
Iranian-American 
Human rights activist.

 

 

 

"Difference 
is of the essence 
of humanity.  
Difference
 is an accident of birth 
and it should therefore 
never be the source
 of hatred 
or conflict.  
The answer to difference
 is to respect it.  
Therein lies a most 
fundamental principle of peace:  respect for diversity."

~ John Hume ~
Irish Politician, 
1998 Nobel 
Peace Prize Winner, 
1999 Defender of 
Democracy Award, 
2001 Gandhi Peace Prize
