An American Story A National Legacy
Introducing Plymouth 400's first educational exhibit, “Captured: 1614”
Open to the public through March 15 at the Plymouth Public Library
This interactive exhibit shines a light on a 400-year-old piece of history that had a significant impact on the Wampanoag tribe, their relationship with the Mayflower Pilgrims, and the founding of Plymouth Colony; cornerstone events that shaped America’s earliest beginnings. Told from the Native perspective, “Captured: 1614” details the 1614 kidnapping of twenty Wampanoag men from Patuxet, the Wampanoag village that eventually became Plymouth Colony, by European explorers who planned to sell them as slaves in Spain. Only one of the Native men is known to have returned home: Tisquantum, otherwise known as Squanto.
