Plymouth Pilgrims Persevered, Followed Their Faith

There were slightly more than a hundred pilgrims packed onto the Mayflower, double the intended number of passengers according to historian Rod Gragg in his newest book.  About half of them did not live to celebrate their first Thanksgiving.

In this interview, Rod offers some fascinating information about the group that settled the Plymouth Colony and the Thanksgiving celebration, which lasted several days and featured on the menu not only turkey, but also lobster and (gulp) beaver.
