The Mayflower Compact Was An Agreement Among The Pilgrims To

Mayflower Compact, Pilgrim Monumentby David (CC BY) The pact thus protected signatories from any charges of treason in an attempt to establish their own government through an independent colony, while assuring those of them who had opposed the rule of law that they had a voice and a voice in all decisions concerning the new colony. At the signing, everyone agreed to abide by the pact, and soon after, Carver was elected governor. After the pact was ratified, Carver ordered the expedition to continue and the Mayflower molded. The original document has disappeared,[8] but from the 17th there are three versions: printed in mourt`s relation (1622), [9][10], reproduced in Purchas his Pilgrimes (1625); [11] handwritten by William Bradford in his journal of Plimoth Plantation (1646); [12] and printed by Bradford`s nephew, Nathaniel Morton, at the New England Memorial (1669). [8] The three versions differ slightly in terms of wording and significantly in spelling, capital letters and punctuation. [10] William Bradford wrote the first part of The Relationship of Mourt, including his version of the compact, so he wrote two of the three versions. Unlike Morton, the wording of these two versions is quite similar. Bradford`s manuscript is held in a safe at the State Library of Massachusetts. [13] Unfortunately, the first journal to provide these conference statements – usually Mourt`s relationship according to the second author, George Morton – did not attach the list of signatories to the conference document or the former Mayflower Pact. Later variants of Mourt`s relationship (see Dexter`s edited work, 1865/1969, pp. 3/7-3/8) noted that George Morton`s eldest son, Nathaniel Morton, published the names of Mayflower`s passengers four decades later (see Morton, 1669, pp. 15-16). In short, the identification of these travelers associated not only their entry into the New World, but also with regard to the beginning of formal Indian affairs, at least in the area known as New England.

[10] Taking into account the description of the contract and Morton`s list of forty-one signatories to the Mayflower Pact of 1669 provides the names of the participants in both fields. The Mayflower Compact is the agreement between the 41 male passengers of the ship Mayflower to establish the Plymouth Colony form of government (1620-1691 CE), which was concluded on 11 November 1620 AD. was signed off the coast of present-day Massachusetts, the United States. The passengers were divided almost evenly between the religious separatists (who called themselves saints) and others, not of their faith, whom they called strangers. . . .
