America under the leadership of Ned Flandish. Homer jumps on the ship
as well, as he's hiding from the cops. Marge, a widow, is being

The Mayflower was the famous ship that transported the English
Separatists, better known as the Pilgrims, from Southampton, England, to
Plymouth, Massachusetts (which would become the capital of Plymouth Colony),
in 1620. There were 102 passengers and a crew of 25-30.
The vessel left England on September 6 (Old Style)/September 16 (New Style),
and after a gruelling 66-day journey marked by disease, which claimed two
lives, the ship dropped anchor inside the hook tip of Cape Cod (Provincetown
Harbor) on November 11/November 21. The Mayflower was originally destined
for the mouth of the Hudson River, near present-day New York City, at the
northern edge of England's Virginia colony, which itself was established
with the 1607 Jamestown Settlement. However, the Mayflower went off course
as the winter approached, and remained in Cape Cod Bay. On March 21/28,
1621, all surviving passengers, who had inhabited the ship during the
winter, moved ashore at Plymouth, and on April 5/15, the Mayflower, a
privately commissioned vessel, returned to England. In 1623, a year after
the death of captain Christopher Jones, the Mayflower was most likely
dismantled for scrap lumber in Rotherhithe, London.
The Mayflower has a famous place in American history as a symbol of early
European colonization of the future US. With their religion oppressed by the
English Church and government, the small party of religious Puritan
separatists who comprised about half of the passengers on the ship desired a
life where they could practice their religion freely. This symbol of
religious freedom resonates in US society and the story of
the Mayflower is a staple of any American history textbook. Americans whose
roots are traceable back to New England often believe themselves to be
descended from Mayflower passengers.
The main record for the voyage of the Mayflower and the disposition of the
Plymouth Colony comes from William Bradford who was a guiding force and
later the governor of the colony.
HMS Bounty (known to historians as HM Armed Vessel Bounty, popularly as
HMAV Bounty, and to many simply as "The Bounty"), famous as the scene of the
Mutiny on the Bounty on 28 April 1789, was originally a three-masted cargo
ship, the Bethia, purchased by the British Admiralty, then modified and
commissioned as His Majesty's Armed Vessel the Bounty for a botanical
mission to the Pacific Ocean.
Bounty began her career as the collier Bethia, built in 1784 at the Blaydes
shipyard near Hull. Later she was purchased by the Royal Navy for £2,600 on
26 May 1787 (JJ Colledge/D Lyon say 23 May), refit, and renamed Bounty. She
was a relatively small sailing ship at 215 tons, three-masted and
full-rigged. After conversion for the breadfruit expedition, she mounted
only four four pounders (2 kg cannon) and ten swivel guns. Thus she was very
small in comparison to other three-mast colliers used for similar
expeditions: Cook's Endeavour displaced 368 tons and Resolution 462 tons.
