Edward Winslow (l. 1595-1655 CE) was a member of the separatist congregation (later known as pilgrims) which sailed aboard the Mayflower in 1620 CE to establish the Plymouth Colony in modern-day Massachusetts, USA. He became one of the more prominent citizens, negotiating the peace treaty with Wampanoag Confederacy (along with John Carver, l. 1584-1621 CE), healing their chief Massasoit (l. c. 1581-1661 CE) of a disease, serving as advisor to governors John Carver and William Bradford (l. 1590-1657 CE), and holding the position himself as well as later drafting the Articles of Confederation of New England, a precursor to the earliest version of the U.S. Constitution.
