Product Description
An analysis of the major incidents in Bradford’s history of the settlement of the Plymouth, Massachusetts, colony. Important Calvinist’s religious principles will be analyzed, as well as the Mayflower Compact, the “Starving Time,” and the Pilgrims’ relationships with Native Americans including Squanto. Bradford’s account of the Maypole of Merrymount episode is examined in detail, particularly its symbolic relevance in American history. My handout, which has blanks that your students can fill in, is suitable for a homework assignment or as an in-class activity. You may also want to incorporate some information in your own lecture notes or other class activities. An answer key is provided on a separate page at the end of the handout. Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph.D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
