They Knew They Were Pilgrims

My colleague John Turner’s book, They Knew They Were Pilgrims: Plymouth Colony and the Contest for American Liberty recently became available for pre-order, out next spring for the 400th anniversary of Plymouth Colony.

You would think that we know a lot about Plymouth colony, but we actually don’t. Vastly more scholarship has been written about Plymouth’s neighbors, the Massachusetts Bay colony, and John has done a lot of basic research for this new telling of the colony’s history. And he is also a beautiful writer.
