The Columbia County News-Times polled first-graders at Bel Air Elementary School to find out "What was the Mayflower?"
Shaynia White, 6
"It's a ship."
Savannah Vaughn, 7
"It's a cargo boat. It carried a lot of Pilgrims."
William Radford, 6
"It was a ship that the Pilgrims traveled on when the king said you couldn't stay there if you didn't worship him. So they wanted to worship their own way and they traveled on the Mayflower so they could go to a new place and they could worship their own way."
Anna Rocque, 6
"It's a ship. It carried people and it carried barrels."
