Starting in the sixteenth century,  this Talk provides a historicial look at the British explorers who sailed to what is now the USA, hoping to establish colonies in the “New World”. As we approach the 400th anniversary of the departure from Plymouth of the Pilgrim Fathers on the Mayflower, this talk also covers four earlier expeditions that led to transient settlements in North Carolina,  Massachusetts, Maine, and Virginia (where Pocohontas lived).  The PowerPoint presentation includes interesting facts about the people who were on board those early sailing ships, and the colonies they established.
