Mayflower, Day by Day - Wednesday, 15 September 1621

15 Sep 2021 4:13 AM | Soule (Administrator)

The Pilgrims noted a significant increase in visitation by Indians, and particularly by their leaders, in the month after the attack on Nemasket.  Even though the foray did not capture Corbitant, the purpose of the expedition, and descended into comedy or farce at times, the local tribes began to recognise how the Pilgrims could be useful in their own plans to work together.  This resulted not only in a treaty (to be discussed next week) but also in various tribes working together, which had not really been the case previously, and certainly not since the plague decimated the coastal tribes several years earlier.
