The world the pilgrims made is a testament to their resolve and daring, without which this country and the people we love so much would not exist.
‘Here is a stone which the feet of a few outcasts pressed for an instant, and this stone becomes famous; it is treasured by a great nation.’
The inspiring words of Puritan John Winthrop are still remembered by Americans awed by his courage, faith, and leadership under punishing conditions.
In a wide-ranging conversation, Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn discusses the importance of 1620, the despotic ideology of The New York Times, and the importance of families.
Political Editor John Daniel Davidson interviews Peter Wood, President of National Association of Scholars, on his book “1620: A Critical Response to the 1619 Project.”
The inspiration to pull up stakes and strike out into the perilous unknown is a debt we owe to the Mayflower Pilgrims and first New Englanders.
Of the two communities that confronted each other 400 years ago in New England, it may now be the Indians who most resemble today’s Americans.
The Puritans were neither 21st-century liberal democrats nor intolerant theocrats, but created republican political institutions critical to the Founding.
A bold and innovative project in political self-government and liberty under law began in New England in 1620 and flourished in the years to come.
Through America’s first century, the heritage of the Mayflower was notably strong in John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Charles Francis Adams, and Henry Adams.
The depth and durability of the 400-year-old biblical roots among most Americans have been consistent with the separation of religion and state, but not the separation of religion and society.
The Puritans’ love of faith, freedom, and self-government that gave birth to America was the same spirit that gradually helped overcome racial injustice.
Ultimately, it is the landing of the Mayflower — far more than the landing of the first slave ship — that has largely defined America.
The 1620 Project is about understanding how these characteristics are essential to understanding the American founding, and how they provided the basis for so much of what makes this nation great.
The Mayflower Compact serves as a model for all that was to come: free people uniting under God, creating institutions by which they would rule themselves.
The Mayflower Compact famously applied the idea of law established by the people, not the king — an idea worth remembering, honoring, and defending.
This Plymouth Rock-colored, poly-cotton tee is soft to the touch, and as long-lasting as the Mayflower Compact.
