The Pilgrims Journey

The Pilgrims had a rough voyage to Plymouth Rock. They weren't allowed up for fresh air except to empty chamber pots! I can't even imagine how bad that would be. They had awful storms and The journey on the Mayflower was not pleasant!
Everything is way different then it is now. Everyone had to wear so many layers of clothes. The boys had to wear dresses at a young age. I certainly don't see that now! The Native Americans and Pilgrims definitely had different customs. They were both very resourceful
using what they had to make more.
The Pilgrims had no schooling, and their parents only taught their children if they wanted to. Most Pilgrims did not get education. The Wampanoag learned different things than the Pilgrims did. The Wampanoag learned things about nature, and making tools. Learning is the best thing we can have. If that's taken away then all we have is what we know, we can't advance any further.
The whole family helped make the meal of the first Thanksgiving. The Wampanoag came to the feast and shared their dishes with the Pilgrims. The feast lasted all day long. The children and adults played games and danced. The Pilgrims let the Wampanoag stay with them, because it was a long walk home.
Thanksgiving is great holiday, no matter what era you live/d in! Happy Thanksgiving!
