See the Signatures: People Who Attended the First Thanksgiving

Pilgrim Hall Museum
75 Court Street
Plymouth, MA 02360
Phone: 508-746-1620

Thursday, November 28, 2013 - 11:00am to Friday, November 29, 2013 - 4:00pm

Enjoy this special two-day only display in the Museum’s Library. On display will be documents with the signatures of eight people who attended the First Thanksgiving at Plymouth in the fall of 1621. For these two days only, Pilgrim Hall Museum will display these original documents and allow visitors the rare opportunity to see up close the handwriting of the Pilgrim leaders William Bradford and Myles Standish, of two brothers Resolved White and Peregrine White who were boys at the time, and even of Massasoit, the Sachem of the Wampanoag.

Also on exhibit will be one of the extremely rare, original copies of Mourt’s Relation from 1622. This small book, written primarily by Mayflower passenger Edward Winslow, contains the actual description of the event that inspired the modern holiday of Thanksgiving. “See the Signatures” is included with regular museum admission. All are invited to make this rare opportunity part of their Thanksgiving holiday.
