[793] � They were aiming to settle around the Hudson River�s mouth, but missed and invaded land that had been cleared by another European-introduced epidemic .� As with Jamestown, the �settlers� had high mortality rates, and only about half of them survived the first winter.� Without native help, the intruders would not have survived.� For a bout 10 years, the pilgrims and their benefactors lived in a golden age of peace, but boatloads of land-hungry English came behind the pilgrims, and wholesale slaughters of Indians and theft of their lands became regular affairs .� In 1675, a war virtually exterminated the tribe that welcomed the pilgrims; the welcoming chief�s son was killed and his head was mounted on a pole at Plymouth for a generation .� That happened with the �friendly� settlement.� Extermination and dispossession came to all native tribes that the English encountered as they stole the coveted land.� The U SA�s first president and its richest citizen crafted the plan to steal native lands with treaties that the invaders would never honor .� �It is history�s greatest swindle, which Washington's biographers, in court-historian style, cannot bring themselves to mention.
