16 SEPTEMBER 1620: 400 YEARS SINCE THE MAYFLOWER SET SAIL
On a blustery day in mid-September 400 years ago a small ship, the Mayflower, set sail with a group of people on board.

They were successful. More than 30 million US citizens have descended from them.
This short edition is the essential guide to the Mayflower project by renowned historian Nick Bunker, taken from his longer work, Making Haste from Babylon.
