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 came to America.
