Julia Ernst Radio Interview About Her Research on the Mayflower Compact

Listen to Associate Dean Julia Ernst in a radio interview related to her research on the Mayflower Compact.

Original Story from Prairie Public News –

On this date 399 years ago, the Mayflower Compact was signed aboard the Mayflower. It was the first governing document of the Plymouth Colony, written by the Puritans fleeing religious persecution by King James of England. Here to discuss that historic document and its relationship to the US Constitution is Julia Ernst, associate professor of law at UND. She was inspired to research this topic by her mother, Janet, who has flew in from Michigan earlier this year when we recorded this conversation, which first aired in February.
