September 6th or 16th - Mayflower Sailing


Some history books state that the Pilgrims left Plymouth, England on September 6, 1620, and this true but.... ...because the Pilgrims at the time were using the Julian Calendar, and according to their calendars, they left on September 6. However, we no longer use the Julian Calendar, and it’s ten days behind our current calendar, the Gregorian Calendar, thus putting their departure date at September 16.
