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.
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 Puritans’ love of faith, freedom, and self-government that gave birth to America was the same spirit that gradually helped overcome racial injustice.
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.
