Answer: The Mayflower was an English ship that famously transported the first English Puritans, known today as the Pilgrims, from Plymouth, England to the New World in 1620. The Mayflower carried 102 passengers, and was under the command of Captain Christopher Jones. He and his ship were veterans of the European cargo business, but neither had ever crossed the Atlantic. As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving Day here in the United States, we should also give thanks to Captain Christopher Jones who helped make the beginning of the United States possible.
