William Bradford catalogued the first few decades of events at Plymouth Plantation (the Mayflower colony) in a single manuscript that was entrusted to his sons and grandsons.
It eventually made its way back to England, and was returned to the US in the late 18th or 19th Century. Harold Paget put together this edition in 1920, on the 300th anniversary of the voyage that brought Bradford & Co. to Massachusetts.
We’ve since had the 400th anniversary. This is a good book, go read it.
Also I’ve assembled a YT playlist for all of my Pilgrim-related videos.
