#ThrowBackThursday: Landing in Plymouth

The Official Website of the
Plymouth 400
Commemoration

Some historic texts state that the Mayflower landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts on December 11, while others state the landing date was December 21. Both cases are correct, and this is a result of the Julian Calendar’s being replaced by the more modern Gregorian Calendar. The Julian Calendar, was replaced because “it did not properly reflect the actual time it takes the Earth to circle once around the Sun, known as a tropical year or solar year.” [For more on this, see our blog post about September 6 vs. September 16]
Ten days from now (December 21) is “Forefathers Day” which honors the landing of the Mayflower Pilgrims in 1620. In honor of #ThrowBackThursday, however, today we leave you with this video of the Mayflower II arriving in Plymouth just 57 years ago.
