    Notes 
    • The courtship of John Alden and Pricilla Mullins was made famous with the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow narrative poem, "The Courtship of Miles Standish." You can read background details from the Wikipedia page here, or the poem itself from the link. There have been other accounts that imply Standish was not as gracious as Longfellow's poem suggests.
