Rod Gragg, author of “The Pilgrim Chronicles: An Eyewitness History of the Pilgrims and the Founding of Plymouth Colony,” joined Breitbart News on Thanksgiving morning.
“Just the idea of coming to America required an incredible amount of courage, along with a lot of faith on their part,” Gragg told host Stephen K. Bannon while discussing the Pilgrims of 1620 on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily show today. As Gragg points out in the interview, America was viewed as a mysterious and dangerous place back then and just getting here alive was a monumental achievement in itself.
To summarize Gragg’s latest effort, “through the vivid memoirs, letters, and personal accounts in The Pilgrim Chronicles, you will discover the full, compelling story of their anguished journey and heroic strength. Award-winning historian Rod Gragg brings the Pilgrims to life in this lavishly illustrated guide, filled with moving, eyewitness narratives.
From their persecution in England and painful exile in Holland to their voyage across the Atlantic and their struggle to survive among the Indians in an untamed wilderness, Gragg takes you on the harrowing and inspiring journey of a people seeking religious freedom”.
The fascinating, in depth 20 minute interview discussing the travails of America’s earliest settlers is available below.
