One of the top bestselling history shows Michael Medved has ever recorded!
Who were the people of the Plymouth Colony and why did they hold a feast of celebration in 1621 which we now call the first Thanksgiving? How did they manage that first winter in the wilderness? Why are these few settlers in New England held in such high esteem today when they considered their accomplishments all to be failures?  And, what about those Puritans? Do they deserve the grim image history has given them?
Learn the answers to these questions and more in this special Thanksgiving Day holiday history program.

    Loved hearing all the details about the Pilgrims and especially their pre-Mayflower days. Squanto…what a hero! How marvelous to understand better the providence of God in the Pilgrims story. Thank you Michael!

    I listened to this a few times, but never with my family. The download allowed my family to have an incredibly uplifting experience, full of "I had NO idea" (s) and "wow thats neat!" Thanks for making these available.

    Amazing story of God's Provision

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Dec 2013

    Wish this had been available when my children were homeschooled. At least the grandchildren can listen and learn. Truly, it is His-story. So many facts in one place...saves a lot of time looking up documents.
