One Hundred & Eleven Questions & Answers Concerning the Pilgrims

Author William P. Muttart will be at Essex Books on Saturday, Nov. 13, 1-2 p.m., to talk about his book, “One Hundred & Eleven Questions & Answers Concerning the Pilgrims: Passengers on the Mayflower, 1620.”

How much do you really know about the Pilgrims?  Are you aware that the Mayflower passengers were not known as Pilgrims until 1793, didn’t land on Plymouth Rock, and didn’t hold a First Thanksgiving celebration?  You also may not know that one Pilgrim lived in this country before 1620 and a legendary Native American they met in Plymouth had previously lived in England and Spain for ten years.  This book provides the answers to these questions and many more.

Co-author Muttart is descended from seven passengers who sailed on the Mayflower in 1620 and is a member of the Mayflower Society in Connecticut.  He is also the Secretary of the (Pilgrim) Thomas Rogers Society and has written a number of articles about the Pilgrims for various publications.

Please call Essex Books at 860-767-1707 or write to essexriver@comcast.net to reserve your space for this wonderful talk right before Thanksgiving!
