    1998 — The Brewster Islands Plaque, Boston Harbor, MA
    This plaque was a joint effort of the General Society and the Elder William Brewster Society. The text [only the case of the first 3 words  and line sequence are given here as on the plaque] reads: “THE BREWSTER ISLANDS / as you look out into Boston Harbor, about a mile and a half directly to the front, you will see the four Brewster Islands. They are, from left to right, Great Brewster, Middle Brewster, Little Brewster (with the Boston Light on it), and Outer Brewster. All were named in September 1621 by members of a Pilgrim Expedition, led by Miles Standish, which had sailed up from Plymouth in a shallop to explore the area. The four islands were named to honor Elder William Brewster, the patriarch and ruling elder from 1609 until his death in 1644. Elder Brewster dedicated his life to members of the Pilgrim Group.”

  • The Landing of the Pilgrims

    The Landing of the PilgrimsWhat is the significance of this painting? It might be titled "Ladies First!" Perhaps you can identify some of the individuals shown; that is probably Captain Myles Standish as the left wearing the helmet and holding the oar. Note there there are other women and children.
