NARRATOR: The Pilgrims that were living in England were unhappy because there was religious persecution.
WOMAN PILGRIM 1: We can`t go on like this anymore.
MAN PILGRIM 1: I know, we don`t have religious freedom, but we have to do what our King James said.
WOMAN PILGRIM 1: I don`t understand why he doesn`t allow us to attend the church of our choice.
MAN PILGRIM 1: I think we should leave England and find a place where we can worship God in our own way.
WOMAN PILGRIM 1: I agree with you. We have to talk to other people and see who wants to join us.
NARRATOR: So the pilgrims left England in September, 1620 in a a Ship called the Mayflower with 102 people aboard and headed to America.

WOMAN PILGRIM 1: I know, we have been in this boat for almost two months. But I am sure that we will soon get off this ship.
MAN PILGRIM 1: Everybody, Look over there, I can see land!
WOMAN PILGRIM 1: I told you, we are almost there.
