November 11th is an important day in America. Not only does the country honor its Veterans, but it is a day when, 400 years ago, a small group of Pilgrims signed the Mayflower Compact, a document that influenced the founding of America.
“William Bradford refers to ‘one small candle’ in his writings and it is only fitting that today we light a candle to commemorate the importance of the Mayflower Compact,” said .
“The Mayflower story is one of America’s founding stories that brought democracy to our country, so it is fitting we would remember the anniversary of the signing of the Mayflower Compact while honoring our Veterans who fought for this country.”
Jane Hurt, Governor General of the General Society Mayflower Descendants (GSMD)
