They wrote a compact among themselves. It was called the Mayflower compact.
The Mayflower Compact kept the settlers together in a group under Parliments laws and kept them from splintering and dying off.
The Mayflower Compact kept the small group of 102 together and, by viture of their numbers, alive, instead of allowing them to splinter and die off.
the purpose was to help the people who aboarded the ship get along and to see themselves as a group of people instead of individuals.
majority rule of the group
The Pilgrims who landed in Plymouth were affected by the Pact. It outlined the "rules of behavior" they all agreed upon.
it gave the people the power to make laws and elect leaders.
Nothing. The House of Burgesses was a representative body and a forefather of the US Congress. The Mayflower Compact, contrary to popular belief, was an agreement between the religion-minded people and those who were not that stated that the group would not splinter up based on purpose.
these laws will be decided by the majority rule of the group
These laws will be decided by the majority rule of this group.
By now, the entire group who came on the Mayflower has been called "the Pilgrims," however only around thirty of the group were leaving England for religious reasons, so the actual pilgrims were not in the majority.
These laws would be decided by the majority rule if this group.
The Mayflower Compact was the first governing document of Plymouth Colony. It was written by the colonists, later together known to history as the Pilgrims, who crossed the Atlantic aboard the Mayflower. Almost half of the colonists were part of a separatist group seeking the freedom to practice Christianity according to their own determination and not the will of the English Church. It was signed on November 11, 1620 (OS), by 41 of the ship's 101 passengers,while the Mayflower was anchored in what is now Provincetown Harbor within the hook at the northern tip of Cape Cod.
to bind the group into a political body and pledge member to abide by any laws that would be established
The 41 signers of this document were aboard the Mayflower. This document was created before the historic landing. The signers were afraid that upon landing, individuals would go their own way and establish their own colony(ies). This Compact was to bind the group into one for the formation of the colony.
The mayflower compact was written by the pilgrims upon arrival in America. The king of England set down laws for them to follow when they arrived in the spot they were to arrive at. However, they were blown off course during the trip and landed outside his designated area. Figuring they didn't have to obey the king in this new area (soon to become Jamestown, Virginia), the pilgrims decided to create their own laws, the Mayflower Compact. In fact, it is the first known document that shows a group of people creating their own laws. Hope this helped! It should all be right!
It helped the pilgrims set up a government before they even arrived to Plymouth rock and brought them closer together as a group.
On the Mayflower, the 102 passengers were divided into two groups, the pilgrims and the strangers (everyone besides the pilgrims). The strangers were the majority group.
It was put in place to make sure that every person that was able, would work. That no one person and group would not do their fair share and would contribute.
It means lets organize ourselves together, and form a group to to govern the people so that we can survive.
