Mayflower Day Clip Art
The Mayflower: Before used as passage to the New World, the Mayflower had been used to carry a commodity related to sinfulness, alcoholic beverages. Specifically, wine was regularly transported aboard the ship from Bordeaux to London prior to its being hired by the Puritans. For the Pilgrims, however, the fact that wine was formerly carried aboard their ship was immaterial. The consumption of alcohol was not sinful for them, and in fact the ship carried large quantities of beer on the voyage across the Atlantic! The ship was a double-decker that was about 90 ft. long (about 30 meters), and weighed some 180 tons. Sadly, it does not survive (rumor has it that its wood was used to build a barn in Massachusetts - but this is certainly false), though replicas have been made based on earlier descriptions of the ship.
