Mayflower II and Plymouth Rock

So, here's what I learned today. No one really knows what happened to the Mayflower after she dropped the 102 first Pilgrims in Plymouth. She went back to England, made a trip to haul salt from Spain and did a few other things and then vanishes from history, likely salvaged at some point. No one knows for sure if Plymouth Rock is really the rock our ancestors first stepped on in the New World. In fact, this rock has been moved two or three times, cracked and been cemented together and probably was no where near where the Pilgrims first stepped. Don't even get me started on the first Thanksgiving!! Had there been radio, and Edward R. Murrow, we would have had an accurate record of all this!! Despite all that, Plymouth is a cool place and Plimouth Plantation is an awesome 1620's village that Pilgrims and Native People "live in" and share their experience. You do learn a lot about how we started as a nation, even if we not quite sure about the exact spot it started!
