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.

Solving This Puzzle

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. If you get a letter in the correct position, it will show green - letters in the wrong position will display as red. 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)

The choice of the Mayflower was not ideal for an passenger trip across the open ocean.

Her first long distance voyage, across the North Sea, had ended in disaster. The ship encountered a storm and started leaking badly. The crew was forced to dump the cargo over the side to lighten the load. After returning to England for repairs, she was used to move cargo between England and France, operating in calmer waters within reasonable range of port in the event bad weather arose.

The timing of the voyage was also not ideal. They left England in September and arrived in Massachusetts in November, putting them in the North Atlantic during late fall. The first part of the voyage went relatively well with good weather. The second part wasn't so easy - the ship encountered a series of storms, was damaged, and started leaking. Low on supplies, they finally reached North American waters.
