Plymouth vs. Popham

School children spent the last week learning about the Pilgrims' settlement in Plymouth, Mass. Jill Kaufman of member station WGBH reports on what they probably didn't learn: 13 years before the Mayflower arrived, another English colony was founded on the rugged coast of Maine. The Popham Colony didn't last, but without it, the Pilgrims might not have succeeded.
