Plimouth Plantation

On this hot day, we would have chosen the shade of the Wampanoag Village with the longhouses and cool clothing to the dusty, fenced Plimouth Plantation, where the women wore layers of quilted clothing to hoe corn. The view above is from the meeting house, where the downstairs housed the church and the upstairs housed the cannons. It seems that religion and violence were unseparable even then.
