Thank you for sharing this! An interesting depiction, especially how the Native man is dressed. It is true that a red wool coat was given to the Wampanoag Massasoit (leader), but the red coat pictured here appears to be a bit over embellished for what the middle class English could have given as a gift. Still very fun interpretation!

Hi Carrie, yeah, hadn't thought of it until reading your comment, the coat could possibly be a veteran from the pilgrim's group recycling an old military jacket---you know as in the [British] 'red coats' are coming. Thanks for stopping by and for the link to your site :-)
