Real History Of The Pilgrims

Most Americans are familar with the story of the Pilgrims. But there's a lot more to the early settlement of the Americas that we are taught in that story.

Join us as we dig into the details of the story and see the human elements. Diplomacy, Strategy, Luck, Incompetence, and Power Plays shape the English entrance into the New World. We present a series of multi-word jumble puzzles - each puzzle focuses on a key element of the story. Each puzzle comes with a description about the people, places, and trends at work.

Unscramble the words and see the full answer to the question. You can drag and drop the letters into the correct order using your mouse or touchscreen device.

We provide additional hints below as we discuss the circumstances and historical evidence about that particular participant or situation. If you get stuck, just try dragging a few letters around until you see a green letter - that will help you get started unscrambling the word.

Spoilers (Puzzle Context)

Massasoit Ousamequin was a man with a problem. As the leader, or sachem of the Wampanoag Confederacy, the Native American group around Plymouth, he had lost almost 75% of his population (and military strength) to the plague. Worse, his rivals - the the Narragansett - were nearly unaffected, placing him in very real danger of being taken over.

So accompanied by Tisquantum, better known as Squanto, he visited the Pilgrims to make a deal. The resulting relationship had many benefits for the Pilgrims. According to English sources, Massasoit prevented the failure of Plymouth Colony and the almost certain starvation that the Pilgrims faced during the earliest years of the colony's establishment.
