Was that before or after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

FTFA In America, they hoped to live by themselves, enjoy the same degree of religious liberty and earn a "better and easier" living.

The Pilgrams wanted a theocracy.  And they got one.  It was also an unmitigated disaster.   Not the right type of christian?  That would be a stone'n or a hang'n for you sir or madam.

Hmmm, that reminds me. I've got to get a proper Pilgrim suit to wear to social occasions when I move to New England next year....

Fun fact: Buckles were never a feature on capotains (aka, Pilgrim hats) of the era.  They didn't make it to the hats until the 1800s.  Damned if I know why.

The Pilgrims landed in Provincetown and stuck around for 5 weeks. Every schoolchild on Cape Cod knows this.
My 'fun' Pilgrim antecedent came over to make money. He got in trouble for beer and bowling on Sunday.
He was the first European to say "Fark this, I'm moving to the Cape."

My town on the South Coast was founded because the Plymouth people were getting to be too secular.  It hasn't become much more fun since.
