Miles Standish was the military captain of the Pilgrim colony. This large print depicts Standish and eight armed Pilgrims, being led an American Indian, down a path away from the ocean where the Mayflower lay anchored. Two stanzas from Longfellow's, "The Courtship of Miles Standish" appear beneath the image on each side of the title. Harry Peter’s book, America on Stone, praises this print as one of the better prints produced by the Armstrong Company.
