Pilgrim Tercentenary Issue
On December 21, 1920, the US Post Office Department issued a set of three stamps honoring the 300th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, Massachusetts.
The Pilgrims never intended to be wanderers. They were devout Christians who felt that only by breaking all ties with the Church of England could they retain their integrity before God. They went to Holland first, but their plight didn’t improve. So they set sail for America on September 16, 1620.
