Who landed at Plymouth rock?
The pilgrims had left England for Holland to flee religious persecution. They left Holland after disliking the "dutchification" of their children. The pilgrims were separatists who wanted to remain English but wished to be free to practice their religion. They secured a charter to go to Jamestown, their original destination, but were blown off course. After scouting the surrounding area the pilgrims finally settled at Plymouth Plantation.
