        Merry Mount a place where there was different types of people; the minstrels, wandering players, and rope-dancers. Unfortunately their way of living was disturbed by the increase of Puritanism (a person who is strict in moral or religious matters) Maypole, a well-respected place to the people of Merry Mount. During the summer they would decorate.   For Bradford, it was clear that Merry Mount (the sexual pun was intended) was an example of “the beastly practices of the mad Bacchanalians.” He was, consequently, New England’s first criminal exile and considered America’s first political exile as well.

      The record of Thomas Morton's Merry Mount comes principally from two sources: Morton's own account in Book III, Chapter 4 of The New English Canaan ()and William Bradford's very different account in his History of Plimmoth Plantation. John Winthrop also has an account in his History of New England. Residential camp operated by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Nashville, with coed programs for ages 6 - Photos, descriptions of facilities and activities, online brochure, job opportunities, and information about accreditation, fundraising activities, and off-season programs.

      Thomas Morton, a trader and lawyer, emigrated from England to the Plymouth Colony in the company of a Captain Wollaston in Unable to get along with the Pilgrim authorities, Wollaston, Morton and other settlers established their own small colony of Mount Wollaston at the present-day site of Quincy, Massachusetts.   The Maypole of Merry Mount has many different themes. From love, good vs. evil, hope, and Puritanism. These themes are alive in many of Hawthornes's vs EvilThe Puritans are the "good" and the people of the Maypole are the "evil". But it can also be reversed, because the people of the Maypole are generally.
