PILGRIMS

The first settlers to America were the
settlers of Jamestown, Virginia.
They arrived on May 6, 1607. 
They began the Southern Colonies.
The Pilgrims came on December 26, 1620.
Originally headed for Virginia,
the Pilgrims were set off course by storms,
and settled in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
There they began the New England colonies. 
The first few months were grueling for the
Pilgrims.  Half of their 102 members
perished: "of the 17 male heads of
families, ten died during the first
infection"; of the 17 wives, only
three were left after three months.

PURITANS

Seeking religious freedom,
the Puritans began arriving in America
in 1624.  They formed the Massachusetts
Bay Company and got permission from
King Charles I to build a colony in New England.
The following year, the company sent
1000 colonists and 17 ships. Each family
in this group was instructed to bring with
them an 18 months supply of food.
Because of this, they were much better
prepared than any of the former colonists.
They settled in Massachusetts Bay
and elected John Winthrop to lead the
new colony. They called their first
settlement Boston. The Middle Colonies
grew between the 1600s and 1700s
when thousands more people from
Europe came to find a new way of
life in America.
