The Pilgrim Fathers aboard the Mayflower sight land for the first time

9 November marks the anniversary of the first sighting of land by the Pilgrim Fathers in 1620. Their ship, the Mayflower had been at sea for two months, having set sail from Plymouth in September. The land sighted was Cape Cod and the ship at first attempted to sail around the peninsular but encountered difficulties. Turning back, the ship anchored at what is today known as Provincetown Harbor.
