A immersive exploration of the relationship between Plimoth Colony's Governor Bradford and Mass Bay Colony's Governor Winthrop.


2 governors. 2 colonies. 4 moments that defined a decade. Join expert staff from Plimoth-Patuxet (formerly Plimoth Plantation) and the Center for 17th-Century Studies at Plimoth for an immersive exploration of the complicated relationship between Plymouth Colony's William Bradford and Massachusetts Bay Colony's John Winthrop. Delving into their personal correspondence and published writings from the 1630s, Plimoth brings its unique approach to living history to bear in an exploration of each man's unique approach to leadership and community in New England's earliest decades.
