The Pilgrims came to America to secure religious freedoms. Some of the Pilgrim leaders were William Brewster and William Bradford.

The Pilgrim leaders believed the Mayflower Compact was necessary to prevent dissent among Puritans and non-separatist Pilgrims.

Bradford was one of the leaders of the group of Sepratists who left England for the New World that we now call the Pilgrims.

I think it was the mayflower compact, but I may be wrong. I doubt it though. :)

The Mayflower Compact that the Pilgrims signed in 1620 is the first example of many colonial plans for self government. The Pilgrim leaders knew they needed rules to govern themselves if they were going to survive the new colony they were about to form. The Mayflower Compact was based on majority rule and the Pilgrims even allowed those who were not Pilgrims to take part in the process. They agreed to choose their leaders and make their own laws which they would agree to follow.

it is NOT the large number of pilgrims interfering with monastic devotionsOR the interference of civic leaders in church affairs

The Pilgrims did not have slaves. The Pilgrims completely took care of themselves. The Indians did become friends with the Pilgrims.

The collective noun is a flock of pilgrims. Others that can be used are a group of pilgrims or a crowd of pilgrims; or perhaps a busload of pilgrims.

Based on some of the disagreements while they were still on the ship that brought them to America, the leaders knew they needed some sort of document that would compel the settlers to work together as a team. The document was called the Mayflower Compact, and was signed before the pilgrims disembarked at the New World.
