Episode 4 of our Plymouth 400 CONVERSATIONS series will be presented in two 15 minutes segments.

Guests:  Karen Rinaldo and Kevin Doyle, authors of In the Wake of the Mayflower

In 2019, Karen Rinaldo and Kevin Doyle joined their love of history and art in their book In the Wake of the Mayflower. The book was launched with the timing of the 400th Commemoration of the landing of the Mayflower on Cape Cod. It is scheduled for a second printing in 2021 for the 400th Commemoration of the First Thanksgiving in 1621. The book has also been requested to be translated into Dutch.

In 1994, Rinaldo, also an artist, received a commission for “The First Thanksgiving – 1621,” a painting that was unveiled at Pilgrim Hall Museum in 1995 and exhibited at Plimoth Patuxet Museums for more than 20 years. It is currently on loan at the Museums on the Green in Falmouth, MA.

 

Guest: Jayne Talmage, author of Duxbury – Our Pilgrim Story – A 2020 Perspective

A Duxbury resident for over 40 years, Jayne Talmage has had a life-long interest in New England History and architecture. She is the Executive Editor of Duxbury – Our Pilgrim Story – A 2020 Perspective.

Published by Duxbury 2020, Inc., Duxbury Rural & Historical Society, and the Alden Kindred of America, the book is a collection of essays about early leaders and Mayflower passengers who settled “Across the Bay” in Duxbury.

Two years in the making, twelve local historians put forth new perspectives. Readers will discover new artifacts from a 1960’s dig at the Alden House Historic Site, follow Native American paths through Duxbury’s Town Forest, and learn the centuries-old politics surrounding the Old Burying Ground, and more.

The Old Colony Club presents its Annual Forefathers Day Celebration on December 23, 2019. Participants will meet at the Old Colony Club, 25 Court Street in Plymouth at 6:00AM, and then march down North Street to the top of Cole’s Hill, returning to the Club by way of Leyden and Court Street. During the event, a Proclamation will be read in honor of the Pilgrim Forefathers followed by 3 rounds of cannon fire. The celebration will be followed by a breakfast and raising of the flag.

About Forefathers Day: On December 22, 1956, an early morning celebration was reinstituted, with marching in top hats, band music, and the firing of a cannon.  Following the march, Old Colony Club members enjoyed a full breakfast and closed the morning’s events with the raising of our country’s flag.  These ceremonies were in memory of the Club’s first celebration in 1769.  The annual meeting and commemorative dinner followed in the evening.  This tradition has continued each Forefather’s Day since.
