Plymouth, Massachusetts is the home of the Mayflower II and Plymouth Rock.  In 1620, Puritans fleeing religious persecution in Europe crowded onto the Mayflower and made the intrepid journey across the Atlantic to the New World.  They hoped to find in America the right to worship God free of government interference.  The Mayflower II is a replica of the original Mayflower that carried these 102 brave settlers.  This floating museum commemorates the dedication and will of the first band of Europeans to reach American shores.  Popular lore suggests that the Pilgrims stepped on Plymouth Rock upon landing in America, although there is no record of this in early writings.  Visitors come to see this legendary rock which, like the Mayflower II, is a symbol of American liberty and freedom of conscience.
