Cultural Note: Pilgrim Fathers - the Pilgrim Fathers

Se denomina así a las 102 personas que zarparon rumbo a América, en 1620, a bordo del Mayflower. El grupo incluía 35 puritanos cuyo objetivo era fundar una comunidad religiosa segura en el Nuevo Mundo y lejos de la persecución de la que habían sido objeto en Inglaterra. Probablemente atracaron en Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts, donde fundaron la colonia de Plymouth.
