Forefathers Monument Guidebook

- Dr. Jerry Newcombe 


"After thousands of years in history where kings and tyrants ruled by force, how were a small band of Pilgrims able to establish self-government at Plymouth Colony? What formed the basis for their laws, education, and liberty? The Forefathers Monument Guidebook offers a fascinating look at this historic monument through the remarkable story of the Pilgrims. It is breathtakingly beautiful, with majestic pictures, classic portraits and inspiring quotations. If you want to learn how the Pilgrims paved the way for America's future freedoms—you need to read this book."

“There are books, and then there are books. Michelle Gallagher has put together one of the most beautiful coffee table books I’ve ever had the pleasure to own. I highly recommend the Forefathers Monument Guidebook. It is a tremendous keepsake of a book, filled with beautiful photos and text. The book documents the incredible ways the Pilgrims who settled in Plymouth in 1620 carried with them the seeds of the future nation. Just about everything anyone needs to know about Plymouth, Massachusetts, can be found in this wonderful book.”

"Michelle Gallagher has created much more than a guidebook to the Forefathers Monument. This book tells the story of a small band of families that covenanted together as a church movement to form a society based on Biblical law with God as their Sovereign. It is often thought that the Pilgrims had an exceedingly small effect on the founding of our country and were insignificant to the development of our nation. They were not wealthy materially but brought with them an uncompromising spirit. This spirit enabled them to covenant to each other and God to form an unbreakable bond. Their love of family and their faith in God gave them the courage to stand for the freedoms you find when you have God as your Lord and live by Biblical law. With this book, Michelle Gallagher has resurrected the Pilgrims to their rightful place in history. This book is beautifully done and should be in every home in America."
