Plymouth is the largest municipality in Massachusetts and one of the oldest in the United States. The town has served as the location of several prominent events, one of them being the First Thanksgiving feast. It was a later coincidence that, after an abortive suicide attempt, the group was able to make it to the end of the day. The group was then able to continue the journey to the beginning of the next day. They were able to see the progress of the group from the start to the finish. The team is able to experience the experience of a new group of people for the first time in their lives. They are able to become a part of the story of a group of strangers who are trying to make their way to the start of the new year. They can also become part of their own history, as they become a member of their new friends and family. They have the chance to meet new people and make new friends as they go through the process of making their way from one place to the next. It is a great way to get to know your new friends, and to get a sense of your new neighbors and the area you are in. It's also a good way to learn more about the people and places you are going to be visiting in the next few days and weeks. The next step is to find out how the group is going to spend the rest of the month of December and into the New Year. They will be able to share their experiences with each other and share their knowledge.

History

Plymouth was the final landing site of the first voyage of the Mayflower. It was the location of the original settlement of Plymouth Colony.

Today, these settlers are better known as the "Pilgrims", a term coined by William Bradford. It is traditionally said that the Pilgrims first set foot in America at the site of Plymouth Rock, though no historical evidence can prove this claim.
