Visit the site of the landing of the Puritans and Pilgrims as they escaped religious oppression and founded a nation and Constitution that secured 'religious freedom'. Visit the first halls of congress where the Constitution was drafted and signed by the founding fathers providing the rights and protections that were lacking in their European homelands that were governed by 'state religions'. We will visit the sites and rehearse the events of the Restoration, for which purpose, this nation was established according to prophecy for the establishment of Zion, and the organization of the Church of Jesus Christ. We will visit the site of the first Temple of this dispensation where the heavens were opened and knowledge, truths, and 'keys' were committed to Joseph Smith necessary to administer the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

From a 'Reformation' in 1520 to the Pilgrims landing in 1620, to the First Vision in 1820 to You in 2021. We will visit the Lands of the Book of Mormon where the promises and prophecies were recorded that connect the Promised Land of the Nephites to the sites that we will visit on this tour.  With us will be special guides and teachers; Bruce H. Porter, and Wayne May, experts in scripture and the Hopewell Culture. You will be truly surprised when you let the evidence speak for itself.
