The pilgrims from England traveled across the Atlantic Ocean in hopes of establishing a new colony in North America. The separatists or “saints” had to endure many unforeseen hardships and overcome many challenges along the journey, but after a long uncomfortable voyage, the pilgrims arrived in America and found a place to build a home.
