Mayflower Compact From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Page semi-protected See also: Mayflower Compact signatories Signing the Mayflower Compact 1620, a painting by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris 1899 The Mayflower Compact was the first governing document of Plymouth Colony. It was written by the Separatists, sometimes referred to as the "Saints", fleeing from religious persecution by King James of England. They traveled aboard the Mayflower in 1620 along with adventurers, tradesmen, and servants, most of whom were referred to, by the Separatists as "Strangers". The Mayflower Compact was signed aboard ship on November 11, 1620 by most adult men. The Pilgrims used the Julian Calendar, also known as Old Style dates, which, at that time, was ten days behind the Gregorian Calendar. Signing the covenant were 41 of the ship's 101 passengers,[1][2] while the Mayflower was anchored in what is now Provincetown Harbor within the hook at the northern tip of Cape Cod.[3] Contents [hide] 1 Reasons for the Compact 2 Text 3 . ...
Why did the Pilgrims come to America? Read the Mayflower Compact: IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c.

To my Wall and Taufer cousins- my wife found out tonight that our 9th great grandad, Francis Billington (through the Francoms) about blew up the mayflower. His dad was a signer on the Mayflower Compact, John Billington and the first executed for murder in the Plymouth Colony. Parenthetically, the author of 1491 tells this story in some detail, because he is also a descendent.

God Bless America, Land That I Love! 2 Chronicles 7:14-22 The song says, “God bless America, land that I love…” And I’m convinced that God has blessed America. But the Bible teaches that to whom much is given, much is expected. If so, then God must expect a lot from America. I. AMERICA‘S PAST Let’s think back this morning about America’s past? ILL. History tells us that in 1620 a group of Christians, who called themselves Pilgrims, made their way from England across the Atlantic Ocean to the shores of this land. They had received permission to settle in the northern part of the region known as Virginia to establish a colony & erect a church that they hoped would be free & independent of the Church of England. But late fall winds battered their little boat, pushing them northward. And when they finally sighted land it was at a place we now call Cape Cod, Mass. The date was Nov. 21. They didn’t want to land there because it was a cold & forbidding wilderness. So they debated for a while. “ ...

A photographic synopsis of the journey to THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS film/book project. It formally began in 1976 in Santa Fe, NM with Connie's discovery of the Native American cosmology and subsequent 20-yr involvement with visionary Native American Elders. Then in 1998 with the discovery of "The Mayflower Compact" in the basement of her Mayflower Descendant great grandfather's home in Braintree, MA. The spiritual alignment of the Pilgrims and the Indians became apparent to her - and the journey began - exploring the Pilgrim Trail in Plymouth, England and Holland, and the evolution of an understanding of THE TRUST FREQUENCY and the conscious loving universe through indigenous cosmology and quantum science and the relationship of this paradigm to the founding vision for America.
All u that claim our Founders wanted "Freedom from Religion" should read the Mayflower Compact.
Just found out that Ted is a descendant of one of the signers of the Mayflower Compact. Which means my children are descended from Colonists and Slaves and First Peoples. I'm thinking that makes them as American as a person can be.
The Mayflower Compact The "Mayflower Compact" was signed on 11 November 1620 onboard the Mayflower shortly after she came to anchor off Provincetown Harbor. The Pilgrims had obtained permission from English authorities to settle in Virginia, whose northern border at the time extended up to what is now New York. The Pilgrims had originally intended to settle near the mouth of the Hudson River, but due to dangerous shoals and a near shipwreck on their attempt to head south, they decided instead to plant themselves outside the bounds of the Virginia Company patent--which caused some "mutinous speeches" amongst some of the passengers. The Mayflower Compact was an attempt to establish a temporary, legally-binding form of self-government until such time as the Company could get formal permission from the Council of New England. This formal permission came in the form of the Pierce Patent of 1621. The original Mayflower Compact has been lost, perhaps falling victim to Revolutionary War looting. The text was ...

We literally read the Mayflower Compact in my English class today. JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS OLD DOES NOT MEAN IT'S GOOD.
In 2012 a statute of the Ten Commandments, funded by a private organization in Oklahoma, was placed at the State Capital by the Capital Preservation Committee. The ACLU immediately filed a law suit to have it removed citing constitutional separation of Church and State. This litigation is still pending and outcome. In 2013 a Satanic Church in New York, which claims Oklahoma members, but has no official legal standing in the state filed to place a Satanic Statue on the Capital grounds. Most of the discussion regarding the placement of the Ten Commandment statue relates it to a religious symbol. I feel this argument is incorrect as well as unwinnable in a court system that favors strict separation. The Ten Commandments are actually an ancient code of law. Many of which are still on the books in our state and others today. In fact, many of these laws are even encoded in our Federal laws. Seeing them as strictly a religious symbol is a legal error. The Ten Commandments are as much a historical code of l ...
This is another prophetic image inspired by Dutch Sheets. After listening to him speak concerning the flag depicted below, I left the gathering with a desire to produce an image to help the body see the synergy of intercessions and our own connectedness to the prayers of our forefathers. "An Appeal to Heaven," was used originally by a squadron of six cruisers commissioned under George Washington's authority as commander in chief of the Continental Army in October 1775. Dutch does such an excellent job of stirring the deep fire within all of us. Father, thank you for Dutch Sheets and all you have commissioned him to release; may he be strengthened in his inner man every time someone beholds this image. In the lower left corner of this image, the Mayflower is making her way to the New World. She was carrying precious cargo – this cargo is depicted by those signing the Mayflower Compact, a document drafted by a company of faith-filled men and women. These men and women were formed in their mothers' womb .. ...
In a sermon delivered in 1989 at Times Square Church in New York City, Pastor Dave Wilkerson electrified his audience with the proclamation that America has passed the point of no return in its rebellion against God and has thus been destined by God for final judgment. He began the sermon with the following words: "America is dying! The country's wound is incurable. It is now in the final throes of a terminal disease. The great empire is crumbling!" Another respected theologian, Dr. Thomas Wang, recently wrote a powerful letter to President Obama outlining his concerns for the direction America is headed entitled "The Death of America." That letter is reprinted here with thanks to Lamb & Lion Ministries and Dr Wang. Dear Mr President: I respectfully write this letter to you about the Death of America! All is not well in our nation. 1) America the Beautiful-- The early Pilgrims and Puritans , with their precious document, the Mayflower Compact, landed here in 1620 and built up this nation according to bibl ...

Remember communisticallly educated American peeps, we are a REPUBLIC NOT a Democracy, much to the dismay of the pro-omnipotent government, pro-infinite taxation and regulation, government teaching monopoly that bulk programs the American populous otherwise. Republic vs. Democracy Rule by Law vs. Rule by Majority Just after the completion and signing of the Constitution, in reply to a woman's inquiry as to the type of government the Founders had created, Benjamin Franklin said, "A Republic, if you can keep it." Not only have we failed to keep it, most don't even know what it is. A Republic is representative government ruled by law (the Constitution). A democracy is direct government ruled by the majority (mob rule). A Republic recognizes the inalienable rights of individuals while democracies are only concerned with group wants or needs (the public good). Lawmaking is a slow, deliberate process in our Constitutional Republic requiring approval from the three banches of government, the Supreme Court and ind ...

I have been spending the last 2 days working on the downs line and I have finally found the Mayflower connection. To Harry they are his 9th great-grandparents. Copied from Wikipedia - "John Alden (c. 1599 – 1689) John Alden was a crew member on the historic 1620 voyage of the Pilgrim ship Mayflower. Rather than return to England with the ship, he stayed at Plymouth, and can be considered a passenger. He was hired in Southampton, England, as the ship's cooper, responsible for maintaining the ship's barrels. He was a signatory to the Mayflower Compact. He married fellow Mayflower passenger Priscilla Mullins, whose entire family perished in the first winter.[1][2][3]"
Well.what do you know Edward Of Mayflower Fuller (son of Robert Fuller and Sara Dunkhorn)119, 120, 121, 122 was born 04 September 1575 in Parish of Redenhall, Co.

Edward was one of the Pilgrims who traveled to Plymouth on The Mayflower. He was a signer of The Mayflower Compact. Edward Fuller died soon after he came on shore, after the Mayflower trip from England. His wife, sometimes called Ann but real name unknown, died about the same time. Edward's brother, Dr. Samuel Fuller, also a Pilgrim on The Mayflower, was a Deacon and physician of the Pilgrim congregation in Holland. Sponsored by the Virginia Company the Separatists, including our Edward, his wife and son, Samuel left Leyden along with thirty other members of their Pieterskirk congregation. A harsh winter combined with dysentery would be fatal for many of the Pilgrims, including, Edward and his wife. The ...

For those of you that know me pretty well, you know I like history. I believe history does repeat itself and it seems very evident, to me at least, that this is very true. Anyway, I was challenged greatly last night to step up my game on this. I am going to be more diligent in learning about our past so I can be even more educated and more loving when dealing with people who do not understand truth. I realized last night that I may have bought into some lies from the enemy about our country and I am going to do my due diligence and study for myself some very important historical documents. I did receive even more confirmation last night as well that "we the people" need to continue to stand for life and liberty and allow people the freedom to CHOOSE this day whom they will serve. I'm also realizing more and more that I am correct in saying that I have a choice in the matter too. We all do. Forcing someone to do what is right or wrong is tyranny.

America – Are We There Yet - No. 1: The Bible says “righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Prov 14.34) America’s spiritual foundation was laid by godly men and women beginning with the Pilgrims and Puritans who left Europe in order to practice their biblical faith. Starting with the Mayflower Compact in 1620, and continuing with the chartering of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, they labored to build a new civilization on biblical principles, dedicated to God’s purposes, a “city upon a hill” in the words of Puritan Leader, John Winthrop.

The (NEA) National Education Association which is the public school system's governing body deciding what goes into our children's text books has given their definition of Thanksgiving as follows: The recognition of unity and the rich American diversity that was embodied in the settlement of America. Diversity is the new buzzword for the tolerance of different lifestyles of people. God, who WAS the very center of the original holiday, has been removed from the picture by the NEA. Todays children are left clueless regarding the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving has been revamped so that it is no longer a celebration of the pilgrims giving thanks to Almighty God, it's a celebration of the pilgrims giving thanks to the Indians.

John II (Immigrant) Billington (Mayflower Passenger) Englishman who was convicted of murder in what would become the United States, and the first to be hanged for any crime in New England. Billington was also a signer of the Mayflower Compact. Billington came to the Plymouth Colony on the famous voyage of the Mayflower in 1620 with his wife and two sons. He soon made enemies with many aboard the ship. He was known as a "foul mouthed miscreant" and "knave". He was not a member of the separatist Brownist congregation that dominated the colony's life, but had fled England to escape creditors. His sons were also seen as troublemakers, as one or both of them set a fire next to one of the powder keg reserves, which caught fire and could have sunk the ship before it reached its destination. One of his sons got separated from the colonists and was taken care of by the Native Americans over the winter; he returned in the Spring. In March 1621, Billington was convicted of contempt for insulting Captain Myles Sandis ...

A MOMENT IN HISTORY Sept 16, 1620: Mayflower departs England The Mayflower sails from Plymouth, England, bound for the New World with 102 passengers. The ship was headed for Virginia, where the colonists--half religious dissenters and half entrepreneurs--had been authorized to settle by the British crown. However, stormy weather and navigational errors forced the Mayflower off course, and on November 21 the "Pilgrims" reached Massachusetts, where they founded the first permanent European settlement in New England in late December. Thirty-five of the Pilgrims were members of the radical English Separatist Church, who traveled to America to escape the jurisdiction of the Church of England, which they found corrupt. Ten years earlier, English persecution had led a group of Separatists to flee to Holland in search of religious freedom. However, many were dissatisfied with economic opportunities in the Netherlands, and under the direction of William Bradford they decided to immigrate to Virginia, where an Engl ...

instructed electorate. Our objective is not simply to overcome illiteracy. The Nation has marched far beyond that. The more complex the problems of the Nation become, the greater is the need for more and more advanced instruction. Moreover, as our numbers increase and as our life expands with science and invention, we must discover more and more leaders for every walk of life. We can not hope to succeed in directing this increasingly complex civilization unless we can draw all the talent of leadership from the whole people. One civilization after another has been wrecked upon the attempt to secure sufficient leadership from a single group or class. If we would prevent the growth of class distinctions and would constantly refresh our leadership with the ideals of our people, we must draw constantly from the general mass. The full opportunity for every boy and girl to rise through the selective processes of education can alone secure to us this leadership. PUBLIC HEALTH In public health the discoveries of s ...
The Mayflower Compact sounds like a small version of the Mayflower.
The American heritage is a Christian heritage dating back to the Pilgrims and the Mayflower Compact over a century before the Declaration of Independence. While, as Americans, we accept the free expression of all religions compatible with the Constitution, our Freedom and prosperity is the result of a robust Biblical adherence -- only in Communist and Fascist countries are Christians attacked and driven underground. The overt hostility of American progressives toward Christians - and thus our HERITAGE - is an outrageously disturbing development -- and one that CHRISTIANS, JEWS, and CLERGY of all religions must STOP!!

I am southern boy who been saved and baptized so that alone tells you what I believe , Often people bash on others believes such as Muslims , Here's a lil history lesion for y'all I think y'all have forgotten Why Did the Pilgrims Leave England By: Cheryl Bowman Ever wonder why did the pilgrims leave England? Life in the New World was extremely difficult, because there were no roads, houses, government or farms. Those who tried to settle in America knew that they were risking their lives. Seeking Religious Freedom The pilgrims left England in 1609 so that they could practice the religion they chose. An English law, the 1559 Act of Uniformity, demanded that all British citizens attend services and follow the traditions of the Church of England. A group of dissenters known as the Puritains had strong disagreements with some Church practices. Under King James, the practice of executing Puritans for disobeying the Act of Uniformity ended, but the Puritans still found themselves hated by society. At first the . ...
On 9/11/2001, I went to work early and stopped in the Von's a few blocks from work to pick up a few things. My day had started off well and was scheduled to be a very positive day. I heard the cashier talking to a co-worker. It took me a minute to understand what they were saying because it seemed unreal. Surely this must be a joke, like the "alien invasion" reported on radio by Orson Wells. I got back in to my car and turned on the radio. I, as the rest of the country, was shocked with what I heard. At worked we listened to the news throughout the day. My son was a few days shy of 3 years old, and the reality of the "draft" really hit. I had a son, he could be drafted in the years ahead depending on where this incident headed. As I watched the news, the reality of the extent to which fire fighters were committed was revealed. I thought they just fought fires! The reality of what police officers do really hit. They chase crooks, come in contact with really bad guys, and protect us. Well...th ...

It seems they are bowing to our sworn enimys I mistakenly thught that by serving to protect the constitution and the Mayflower Compact that I was helping to defend and preserve this country. I spent a couple tours in Vietnam and another in a hospital. I live. Alone because society won't have me. One last thing don't judge me.

Under Attack I love you, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:1-3 I sat cross-legged on the linoleum in front of our small black and white television as the voice of President John F. Kennedy greeted America. “Good evening, my fellow citizens.” But, it was not a good evening. He continued with an announcement about a nuclear missile buildup just off our shores on the small island of Cuba. I remember hearing words like capable of striking, offensive weapons of sudden mass destruction and threat to the security of all the Americas. It was October 22, 1962. I wept at the post office as I watched a yellow school bus pull away from the curb with my husband of six months. After only a few months of marriage, he had received a large envelope in the mail—drafted into military service t ...
"For the Glory of God and the Advancement of the Christian Faith" Mayflower Compact 1620 America will fulfill its destiny
Thought of the perfect day for American history...The Constitutional Convention..Articles of Confederation the Mayflower Compact.What this country was built on!!!
On this day, as we mourn the attack on our nation 12 years ago, Connor is having a lesson on 'One Nation Under God'. Learning from the Mayflower Compact to the composing of God Bless America. It is important that we teach our children the foundations that our great country was built on!! To let them know that the men and women that have given their lives for our country did not die in vain.
Freedom was taken when God was kicked out of arm forces and county. No more war.!!! Bible verses were sanded off the guns a year or so ago. Mayflower compact is untaught in school. Now the conditions of our freedom stated by president Lincoln at ground zero was put against the law? Hide the history.?? The more you know... The more you can pass on.. Save a life, teach the truth, history, bible, Jesus saves... Before its all against the law.
Politicians have lost their authority and have become tyrants in their own order of things, thinking themselves wise and believing they are diligent concerning the business of a nation making more rules than God ever gave(Old and New Testament combined) they have captured us into a nation of 300 million slaves. Our hope is the True Church will rise up and say ENOUGH we are no longer afraid of the IRS and no longer accept benefits from the governors, we demand godly principles in our leaders and respect for our Constitution and integrity and morality in our people... We stand on the Bible as our foundation and its rule from true authority which comes from GOD alone and our King is Jesus... As the church goes, so goes the nation... remember when the church had back bone? This country was founded in the Name of God Amen (Mayflower Compact) WAKE UP CHURCH

Mayflower Sailed, Taking Pilgrims to New England By: Dan Graves, MSL One of the most significant chapters in American history opened on this day, September 6, 1620. After failed attempts to sail from England, leaving behind her sister ship Speedwell, the Mayflower sailed from Plymouth for the New World. Aboard were 101 passengers. By today's standards the ship was little bigger than a yacht. Ninety feet long and twenty-six feet wide, it hardly seemed the vessel to alter world history. Cramped in so small a space and subject to rough weather, the passengers suffered a good deal. The sailors cursed the pious Pilgrims, whom they detested. Food consisted of dried fish, cheese and beer. The only sanitary accommodation was a slop bucket. There was nowhere to bathe. Seasickness was rampant during storms. With little air below decks, the conditions were nauseating at the best. Despite this, only one passenger died at sea. However bad matters were aboard ship, they would prove far worse in the "hideous and desolat ...
Chapter Ten: Manifest Destiny The White Man is a tremendous builder. The few times in history when he has been unshackled and free to do as his inborn nature dictates, he constructs, he creates, he builds empires. Given free rein over a period of time, the creative works of the White Man become truly astounding. One such period was the building of America, and the Winning of the West. During the middle of the nineteenth century, the majority of Americans were imbued with the idea that it was their Manifest Destiny to conquer and populate America from the shores of the Atlantic to the shores of the Pacific. And conquer they did! Our doctored history books have given us so much trash about the importance of the Pilgrim Fathers, the Puritans, the Mayflower Compact, and in general, the role of Christianity in the building of America. Our school children and the American population, by and large, as a result, have now become so indoctrinated that practically all of them will rehash this Jewish distortion that ...
America is the 13th tribe of Israel; founded as a promise from God to spread his word westward. Our pilgrim fathers exclaimed a reliance and faith in God In the words of the Mayflower Compact, and that same faith is inscribed on America's great seal which depicts, in symbolic manor, the principles which inspired the founders of our republic. This Great Seal is affixed to every official US document. The main theme is a Bald Eagle in a cluster of thirteen stars within a glory cloud over his head. In its right talon it clutches an olive branch with 13 leaves and 13 berries, and in its left talon there are 13 arrows, symbolizing the awesome force that could be unleashed by the United States should it ever become necessary. On the reverse side is the design seen on the left side of our dollar bill; an unfinished pyramid surrounded by the all seeing eye of god. The eye, within the triangular capstone, symbolizes the watchful eye of the God of the Bible watching over this nation, and illustrates the prophetic wo ...

Testimonies from History; Here are some facts that you may not have known about our Founding Fathers and other key leaders in our country said about the Bible and their Faith in the Lord? In 1620, those who signed on to Mayflower Compact sealed the agreement with these words, "In the name of God, by the grace of God, to the glory to God, and the advancement of the Christian Faith.": Our first president, George Washington, said, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without the Bible and God.": Our 7th president, Andrew Jackson, affirmed, "That Book (referring to the Bible ), Sir, is the rock on which our republic rest." Our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, wrote, "I believe the Bible is the best gift that God has ever given man. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this Book. I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.": Our 25th president, William McKinley, said, "The more profoundly we study this ...

Ronnie Coffin America WAS Founded as a Christian Nation A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet * Today, Christians, in the United States, and around the world, are being persecuted to a degree not seen in many centuries. Some of the worst persecution is being levied against the Christians in the very nation founded by Christians, America. A movement straight out of the bowels of *** called Political Correctness, is destroying this nation. It is undermining the tenants upon which this nation was founded and re-writing history in an attempt to remove our children from their birthright inheritance of a nation based on the Judeo-Christian Faith. When the Mayflower dropped anchor just off these shores in November of 1620, The crew and passengers gathered to thank God for their safe, though troubled, passage to this New World. And then… they drew up a document, which would become the founding document for this nation. It was the Mayflower Compact. Little noted these days because it’s contents are explosive… b . ...
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL - Dr. Benjamin Carson. . . a second permanent colony was being established by the pilgrims in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in the harbor of Cape Cod Bay. These religious separatists were intereted in the New World primarily because they felt that their FREEDOMS WERE COMPROMISED BOTH IN TERMS OF RELIGION AND LIFE IN GNERAL. In an attempt at self-rule, the constructed an agreement of behavior known as the Mayflower Compact, the first formal constitution in North America. In this contract they agreed to the FAIR AND EQUAL treatment of everyone for the good of the colony. Unfortunately, "everyone" did not include women, those who were not land owners, slaves and INDENTURED SERVANTS, or the region's NATIVES. . . . they were attempting to build a type of society that was foreign to most of the world since most colonies were governed according to the wishes of the ruler . . . immature baby steps toward a more noble goal, but at least they were steps in the right direction.

"O Lord that lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.” - William Shakespeare Our Reasons For Thankfulness To many, Thanksgiving is about welcoming family, the joy of turkey, dressing and green bean casserole and watching football followed by a Black Friday shopping frenzy. Contrary to current pop culture, Thanksgiving is not about door busters and extended shopping hours. It’s about the journey of a small group of puritans who left their English and Dutch homelands in search of religious liberty. In September 1620, one hundred and two passengers and approximately thirty crewmembers set sail from England for the New World – our America. Two grueling months later, on November 11, they anchored in what is today Provincetown Harbor, Massachusetts. After signing the Mayflower Compact, which some say laid the foundation for our U.S. Constitution, and barely surviving a brutal winter they celebrated for three days in the fall of 1621. The pilgrims, grateful to the Wampanoag Indians for te ...

The Mayflower and Presidents - What do they have in common? Signing of the Mayflower Compact. This month marks the 392nd year since the Mayflower landed on what is now known as Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts. Blown off course from their original destination and having landed at the beginning of winter, half of these brave men, women, and children died after their first winter in this country. The survivors, befriended by the Indians, held a feast the following Fall to thank God and their new friends for the abundant harvest. This is the origin of our modern Thanksgiving celebration. As we look forward to this year's commemoration of this long-standing tradition, remember the legacy of these brave colonists who risked everything to build a Biblical culture in this country. Noah Webster Interestingly, some of our Founding Fathers were direct descendants of these hearty Christian settlers, including distinguished men like John Adams, John Trumbull, and Noah Webster. These descendants openly maintained the fai ...
Thanksgiving. What's the big deal? Pilgrims tried leaving England during the time of King James, twice before they finally made it off the island in 1620. Conditions were bad for Pilgrims but were even worse at the bottom of the boat that carried them to America. There pastor, John Robinson, believed that people from his fellowship were chosen to go to this foreign land and start a new nation. Two boats: Mayflower and the Speedwell. The Speedwell sank leaving only enough room for half of the fellowship. Pastor Robinson stayed behind while sending 102 people to a promise land, but before setting sail they reviewed the history from Abraham to Joshua like many Biblical heroes before them. They set sail during the roughest seas and what should have been a three week journey was six weeks of miserable, cold and wet conditions. Before getting off the boat they established a form of civil government in a document called the Mayflower Compact. By the end of the spring of 1621, 47 of 102 were dead but unwill ...

POST Principle 18. Unalienable Rights are best preserved by setting forth the principles of the government in a written constitution. Anglo-Saxon common law was unwritten—the principles of the government were known among the people, and written record was considered unnecessary. But they lost all of their rights in the Norman Conquest, and got them back only very slowly. It took over 150 years, but they were regained with the Magna Carta in 1215, and written down for posterity. Later in that century, the “Model Parliament” compelled the king to agree to no taxation without representation. Charles I was forced to sign the Petition of Rights (1628), and William and Mary the English Bill of Rights (1689). The English have prosecuted the government with these statutes in place since then, but no written constitution. Our forefathers wanted a more codified structure of government, and so the tradition of a written constitution was wholly American. The Mayflower Compact was our first charter, but c ...

I was reading, this morning, about the Mayflower Compact. This was a document signed by the voyagers on the Mayflower ship, shortly after landfall on the New World. It seems to be a covenent agreement where they promise to work together to advance christiantity here. I believe this document was signed under undo duress, which renders the signers free from its' obligations. It seems finding firewood and food were low on their list; a clear sign of insanity. Thanks for reading my rumination, on this somewhat unrelated topic, to todays issues.

Folks, if I recall the Mayflower Compact was in 1607 and Harvard College was founded in 1636, that was truly some forward thinking people. Most minds would have been on day-to-day survival. I may be mistaken but in our time I think the following presidents all went to Harvard: Obama, G.W. Bush, Clinton, G.H.W. Bush, and Kennedy. If so Harvard did great on 3, acceptable on 1, and failed miserably on the most recent. With that, I bid you adieu.

American historians make history books look like other parts of the world revolve around America and that the forefathers alongside the indigenious Indians of North America entered into peaceful negotiations with the injustification of the Mayflower Compact. When in reality, King George of England had relegated them, the English pilgrims, to indentured work as well to cultivate the lands and cut wood into lumber. The shipped imports and exported resources were subject to imperial taxation, which made Mr. George rich. This is why I rather read from African writers because they build on a person's morales, who is not of English descent, and tell you the truth that lies in the past. All the forefathers preceding Abraham Lincoln's presidency were all racist colonist or children of English colonists who were hyprocritical when it came to freedom. They declared freedom from King George, but weren't trying to give it to the livestock, the Africans. They even made sure that the treatment the Africans received wer ...
How's your knowledge of history. September 6, 1620. The Mayflower left Plymouth for the New World. 101 passengers in a ship hardly larger than yacht today. Two months and 5 days before landing at Cape Cod. Before going ashore the Pilgrims signed the Mayflower Compact. Despite efforts today to rewrite American history, the Magna Carta made those first settlers a completely relgious entity while breaking new political ground in establishing its own governance while still paying respect to the king of England. First rate source materials such as Governor Bradford's journals are quite clear. Say what you want but Christian forms had a signficant influence in shaping the character of early American governments. And these new documents were largely the creation of Christian exiles, seeking religious freedom in the New World.

History they can't teach you in school: In 1776, “our forefathers brought forth on this continent a new nation conceived in liberty”. They did it to preserve their special form of government and way of life—things that existed in only a few places for short periods of time during the last 6,000 years of human history. Our American government and way of life had evolved slowly over the previous 169 years from a series of events. The process started in the 1600’s when the kings of England set up colonies in North America. They did it because the kings of Spain had become rich and powerful from colonies in Mexico and South America during the 1500’s. But the English kings were stuck with the leftovers. They found no gold, silver, or trade routes here. In desperation the English kings tried to make some money by offering liberty to anyone who voluntarily settled here. They did this with written contracts like the Mayflower Compact of 1620 and the charters that created New Jersey in 1654. Thes ...

I have thought about this matter for quite awhile and have done a lot of research. So to those I know, these are my views. I can't believe how many citizens in the US, do not do any research on our history.The radical Muslims, now invading our Country, trying to force their primitive, barbaric ways are a threat to our Freedoms. As I see it, it's time for those, who cling to the beliefs of their political parties, to take a good hard look at what their party really stands for. For one thing Washington did not want to see the people divide into different political parties, he wanted a patriotic, unselfish, person who could put their views aside. Right now all I see are those who are sitting back and watching our Freedoms disappear. Some say the Mayflower Compact doesn't count, because it's not a Law.
