Host Bill Heid talks to American historian Roger Schultz, who separates fact from fiction in what we believe about the Pilgrims and Native Americans. Even Rush Limbaugh has some of it wrong in his latest book, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims.”
- Whether the Pilgrims really began as socialists, as some claim they did.
- What the Pilgrims and Native Americans really ate for their famous meal.
- Why people are wrong when they say the Pilgrims were boring and drab.
- Why food was served at their feast.
- What the real purpose was of the Mayflower Compact.
- Why the story of the Pilgrims can’t be told without focusing squarely on their faith.
Did you know their Thanksgiving feast wasn’t one day, but three? Or that firearms played a big role in their celebration? Anyone who enjoys American history or is concerned about the role government plays in our day-to-day lives should listen to this episode.
