In 1621 who was the governor of the pilgrims?
The Pilgrims set up their colony in Plymouth, Massachusetts. As the colony formed it was under the command of Governor William Bradford.
In the spring of 1621, the Pilgrims met two Native Americans, Squanto and Samoset, who, to the Pilgrims' surprise, spoke English. Samoset had learned English from traders, and Squanto had learned it in England, where he had been a prisoner. These two Native Americans offered a peace pact on behalf of the Wampanoag leader Massasoit. They believed that the Pilgrims could be useful allies and signed a treaty in 1621.
