1638 Sea Voyage to New England

Blaine Whipple's blog has an article about what it was like sailing to America in 1638. Brothers Matthew and John Whipple sailed from England to Ipswich, Massachusetts in that year. (Another Whipple--teenager John Whipple--had sailed to Dorchester, Massachusetts about six years earlier--during the same era.)

If you're interested in the colonization of New England in the 1630's, you'll probably want to read Blaine's article.

(Thanks, Blaine, for pointing it out ...)
