They Came for Freedom

The Forgotten, Epic Adventure of the Pilgrims

Book - 2017
Rate this:
The Pilgrims have been relegated to folklore and childrens stories, and once a year at Thanksgiving, we encounter Pilgrims as folksy people in funny hats before promptly forgetting them. But the true story of the Pilgrim Fathers, which begins with the execution of two pastors deviating from the Elizabethan Church of England, was one of courageous faith, daring escape, and tenuous survival. Theirs is the story of refugees who fled intense religious persecution; of dreamers who voyaged the Atlantic and into the unknown when all other attempts had led to near-certain death; of survivors who struggled with newfound freedom. This is the epic story of the Pilgrims, an adventure that laid the bedrock for the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, and the American identity.
