PILGRIM FATHERS
Los Pilgrim Fathers fueron un grupo de puritanos que abandonaron Inglaterra en 1620 huyendo de las persecuciones religiosas y que, después de cruzar el Atlántico en el Mayflower, fundaron una colonia en Nueva Inglaterra (New Plymouth, Massachusetts), dando así comienzo a la colonización británica en Norteamérica. Se los considera como los fundadores de Estados Unidos y el éxito de su primera cosecha se conmemora cada año en el Día de Acción de Gracias (Thanksgiving Day).
