 “An Accidental Find Leads to a Monumental Discovery: God’s Hand in the Return of the Bradford Journal”

Presented by: Scott Miller

The fascinating story of the discovery of the Bradford Journal is a presentation that Scott Miller first produced in 2017, and has been requested and well-received by several Colonies around the State since then. It highlights the miraculous protections that the Bradford Journal providentially experienced to ensure that we have the single most complete history of the Pilgrims and Plymouth ever written. Many of the facts about the Plymouth Plantation and Pilgrims we know today would have been lost to history, had this journal been destroyed or permanently lost. In fact, when it was finally returned to our shores, Massachusetts Senator, George F. Hoar, exclaimed regarding William Bradford’s Journal, that “there is nothing like it in human annals since the story of Bethlehem.”
