The Englishman who gave Mayflower II to the American People.
The ship Mayflower is a national treasure like the Statue of Liberty.
It has a deep meaning to most Americans because it speaks to our collective history as immigrants.
In 1620 the iconic ship brought passengers from Europe to “the New World” seeking a better life.
In 2020 – 400 years later – more than 30 million Americans can trace their roots to that historic voyage.
The Wicked Pilgrim is the dramatic true story of how a historically accurate replica of that famous ship was built in the 1950’s .
Mayflower II is the product of transatlantic competition and collaboration between two men of bold vision and determination: Warwick Charlton (British) and Henry Hornblower II (American). Each man wanted to build a replica of the 1620 ship in the 1950s, but for different reasons.
Their story is the subject of The Wicked Pilgrim.
