even the Mayflower Compact

Images An excellent source for historic legal materials is Yale Law School's Avalon Project.  It's where you'll find the full text, for example, of what the Pilgrims said in the Mayflower Compact as they began creating laws for themselves in the New World -- in case you get curious as you contemplate such things while chopping up stuffing ingredients this evening.

(Inexplicably, the farm scene on the Avalon Project's Mayflower Compact site depicts Sturbridge Village, in central Massachusetts, which focuses on life in the early 1800's.)
