Demeter was the goddess of corn, but 'corn' in the European sense (ie. wheat). She wasn't the goddess of maize/sweetcorn, because the ancient Greeks didn't know about it. America hadn't been discovered yet by Europeans at that point, after all.

Changed to "harvest" as it has to do with Thanksgiving as well.

You've misspelled "pilgrims" in the "name of the rock" question. Also, the Pilgrims and the Puritans were entirely different groups, although both of them were upset with the Church of England.

The three identical "original groups" questions seem to be causing some problems. How are we supposed to figure out which button to click for which one?

Thank you, I meant to reverse that. It is fixed now.

Gimbels was with an e, not an a. And I don't think there should be an apostrophe, because the s was plural, not possessive. It was Gimbel Brothers, which came be known as just Gimbels.
The phrasing "one of the original groups for the Mayflower pilgrims" is really awkward. Planters hired by Thomas Weston were one of the original groups for the Mayflower pilgrims. What does that mean? I think you just mean this:
Planters hired by Thomas Weston were one of the groups of pilgrims on the Mayflower.
More generally, what do you mean by "original" groups for the Mayflower pilgrims? There weren't subsequent groups of Mayflower pilgrims. There were later pilgrims, but they didn't come over on the Mayflower.
