2020 is the 400th Anniversary of the settlement of Plymouth Colony. Thanks to modern technology we can take a tour of the original settlement without leaving our armchair!  Using a Google tour, we will examine the resources and topography that convinced the Mayflower passengers to build their settlement in Plymouth.  We will learn how that site aided in building a rapport with the indigenous peoples.  We will discuss why their decision to settle in Plymouth ultimately doomed Plymouth as an independent colony and why the Pilgrim story still remains an iconic part of American history.

Please note, this is an online event. Registrants will receive an email with links and instructions on how to join the event.
