Not to be rude (And please excuse me if it comes across that way) but what did you expect? For them to be able to predict the future and be aware of
the future historical significance of such a ship? 1623, they were English Citizens, and the rumblings of revolution were only just starting...
I am not surprised at all that it was sent back to be used as lumber...At the time, why would they think that it would be anything other than one of
many ships used to send citizens to this new land in order to colonize and become another British Colony?
However, there are many mayflower replicas that you can go visit, all over the place.
Click here, please.
Not the original, but still very neat to go see. I have seen one myself in Corpus Christi, Texas. Surprisingly small.
