This year is the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower.

The sailing of the Mayflower in 1620 is a celebrated foundation myth of the United States and a global symbol of the flight from oppression to freedom. It is a migrant story with a powerful resonance for the events of our time. This year is the 400th anniversary of the voyage. My book aims to unravel the Mayflower legends and legacies with intriguing stories from the true historic narrative. The fraught and troubled beginnings of the Pilgrims, as they became known, emerged as the touchstone of the America’s sacred beginnings, eclipsing the earlier story of Virginia and the South well before the Civil War. Join author Dr Rita Cruise O’Brien to learn more.
