Where It Began, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA



Massasoit, the great Native American leader, is credited with helping the pilgrims survive and prevent starvation during the early years of the Plimoth Colony in the 1620's. Overlooking the harbor, his larger than life statue stands proudly. ("Plimoth" was the contemporary spelling back then).



Though there are other stories about the beginning of European conquest of the "New World," the story of Plymouth Rock seems to have been parlayed into a very successful landmark.
