During 1609, the Pilgrim Fathers, members of an English separatist
church in disagreement with the state church caused by their strong
religious conviction, moved from the Low Countries to escape from
the threat of imprisonment. Deciding to start a new religious and
civilized community, they chose to emigrate to the New World. On
board the Mayflower, a minor galleon of three masts displacing 180
tons, they reached the coast of Virginia in 1620 where they ratified
the „Mayflower Compact“, the constitution of a real state, the first
nucleus of the United States of America.
