Sept. 16 is honored as Mayflower Day. On that day in 1620, more than 100 passengers landed on Plymouth, New England after having sailed for more than two months aboard the three-masted ship, the Mayflower. During their journey from Plymouth, England, that first colony of Pilgrims encountered dangerous storms and little to eat. They paved the way for many more escapees to come by drawing up the famous Mayflower Compact, one of the earliest plans for self-government by European colonists in America.
