The Plymouth Colony

Pilgrims and Indians

Question: How did the Pilgrims avoid the problems that Jamestown faced?

After hearing the stories of ''cannibalism in Jamestown'', the Mayflower was "eager to avoid the situation, in which they did- and they sailed south, landing at Plymouth rock. Here there was plenty of food to hunt, and they also found corn buried by local Indians. After some time, the Pilgrims had started to "shape" their colony,by building things like "houses", a "church", and a "meeting hall". They also"learned the native ways", and had a surplus of food. With all this, and low death rates, it was a cause of celebration- which had then caused one of the very first Thanksgivings. The Plymouth Colony was much more fortunate than Jamestown because of this.
