The Mayflower Exhibit

While Gemma Cleanslate was checking out Christmas exhibits, Becky Shamen decided to take a look at something of a closer holiday: Thanksgiving. And in the Zundra sim, there's a seasonal exhibit about the ship and people behind the first Thanksgiving: the Mayflower and the Pilgrims. Becky noted what the small size of the ship suggested what the founders of Plymouth Colony had to go through, and as different as their beliefs were from Americans today, perhaps those from the Counterculture days of the late 1960s and 1970s had more in common with them than one might think.
