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.
Ultimately, it is the landing of the Mayflower — far more than the landing of the first slave ship — that has largely defined America.
While the Pilgrims gave us the first Thanksgiving, which we celebrate each year, they provided us with an even more important legacy to be celebrated, the Mayflower Compact.
It’s a special occasion, so this Thanksgiving we’re doing an apple-based whiskey as well as an orange one.
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.
