"This blanket is great and made a perfect gift for a fellow history lover. Soft, warm, good size, and very attractive. Looks great as a throw, but don’t be afraid to use it every day, too." - Jonathan M.


Exclusively available from The History List.

Our original design created by artist, Larry Stuart, illustrating the voyage of the Mayflower as it departed from Plymouth, England on September 6, 1620 and arrived at Plimouth Bay, MA on November 9, 1620.

Includes “Descendant” in large letters below the ship.

Woven in America on a Jacquard loom, it's made of 100% combed, natural cotton.  The image is actually woven into the blanket, it's not printed. 

Size: 54" x 70"

This design is also available on a crewneck t-shirtwomen's v-neck shirtcrewneck sweatshirtcrewneck shirt in youth sizessmall posternotecards with envelopessticker, and a magnet. As well as a long-sleeved shirt in limited quantities.

To learn more about the Pilgrims and their arrival 

We interviewed Donna Curtin, the Executive Director of the Pilgrim Hall Museum, on November 24, 2020. You can watch a recording of that interview, which includes questions from the audience.

Donna’s institution is the one behind the striking images on the poster and we worked closely with her on the development of the foldout. Donna has her PhD. in American History from Brown University. Early in her career, she was an interpreter at Plimoth Plantation. The Pilgrim Hall Museum is the country's oldest continually-operating public museum.

This interview was part of an ongoing series of “History Camp” interviews with noted authors and historians Thursday nights at 8 pm (Eastern). They are streamed live at HistoryCamp.org/online


More information on the individuals and families of the Mayflower

"The Mayflower launched with 102 passengers - 74 male and 28 female - and a crew headed by Master Christopher Jones. About half of these emigrants died in the first winter. 

There were five Mayflower passengers who died at sea in November/December 1620. Those passengers were followed by forty-five passengers who perished in the bitter first winter of 1620/21. The Mayflower colonists suffered greatly during their first winter in the New World from lack of shelter, scurvy, and general conditions on board the ship.
Many Americans can trace their ancestry back to one or more of these individuals who, 'Saints' and 'Strangers' together, would become known as the Pilgrims."

          I wanted something to keep commemorating the Voyage of the Mayflower. I got the Magnet, the Poster and the Most Wonderful Blanket! All three are extremely well made and very beautiful.
