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.’
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.
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 losses we have experienced because of COVID-19 help us better understand the Pilgrims. Their courage and faith to give thanks despite their hardships can encourage us to give thanks in 2020.
The Puritans were neither 21st-century liberal democrats nor intolerant theocrats, but created republican political institutions critical to the Founding.
Revisionist histories are nearly always written (or posted to the internet) with an agenda in mind — it’s no different for the Pilgrims and Thanksgiving.
Freedom is still the reason to come to America and the reason to stay. It’s still something to be thankful for and something to fight for.
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.
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich talks voter fraud, foreign policy in the Biden administration, the future of the Republican party on The Federalist Radio Hour.
From the very beginning, the American tradition of Thanksgiving has become an annual celebration of the glass half full even when it’s leaking.
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.
“Alongside the Patriots of 1776, the Pilgrims of 1620 deserve the honor of American founders,” said Sen. Tom Cotton on the Senate floor.
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.
The Mayflower Compact famously applied the idea of law established by the people, not the king — an idea worth remembering, honoring, and defending.
