This is a mix of MA/VA colonial images and pilgrims. One of my ancestors is William Brewster, who came on the Mayflower & had a hand in writing the Mayflower Compact. I just penned the romantic comedy "Love's a Stage," set in Boston & Cape Cod, present day, which highlights pilgrim ancestry. I also enjoy pictures from other colonial areas for writing inspiration. (Like Williamsburg) My story takes place in the fall & around Thanksgiving.

The Mayflower Compact: was the first governing document of Plymouth Colony.  It was written by the Separatists, fleeing religious persecution from James VI and I. They traveled aboard the Mayflower in 1620.

The Pilgrim Monument commemorates the history  of the Mayflower Pilgrims, their arrival and stay in Provincetown Harbor, and the signing of the Mayflower Compact. It is the tallest all-granite structure in the United States. Visitors can walk to the top on a series of stairs and ramps. (Cape Cod Activities & Events)
