1.03 Pirate or Puritan

In complete sentence format, list three specific details you learned about William Bradford from this reading. -By the time William Bradford was twelve, he was orphaned by the death of his parents. -In 1621, after the death of John Carver, he was elected governor of Plymouth and reelected nearly every year henceforth -William was married twice: First to Dorothy May, 10 December 1613, in Amsterdam. And then to Alice (Carpenter) Southworth, on 14 August 1623, in Plymouth.

In two sentences, explain why you think Bradford is significant in American history: His work colony building in Plymouth, and his success doing so, led the way for further colonization. And his journals kept well documented records of the colony’s goings on and allowed future generations to have an understanding into daily life.

What personal tragedy occurred while the Mayflower was anchored off Provincetown Harbor? (Remember, use complete sentences please): While the men whereon shore exploring Williams young wife, Dorothy Bradford, fell over board and drowned.
