Dunno how many native Americans the people from Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts killed. I do know how many people the people from Roanoke Island, Virgina (Year 1585), because I had the honor to go to both places. Sooooo, were the Pilgrims interested in their own religious freedom or everyone's'? In either case, God bless them.
