Plymouth’s 400th Anniversary Replays Our National Legacy

A major chapter of the American story opened in November 1620 when a band of Englishmen and -women stepped off the shockingly small sailing ship Mayflower near present-day Plymouth, Mass. Their ideals of freedom and self-determination became the foundation of American political life. The 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival will be celebrated through 2021 with exhibits, festivals, arts and educational events, organized through Plymouth 400. A traveling exhibit about the Native Wampanoag people, who greeted the English and helped save their lives in their first winter, is now underway. Coming up are Embarkation and Youth Festivals, Sunrise and Thanksgiving celebrations, and many other opportunities for Americans to appreciate the idealism and physical grit of a legendary band of our founders.
