Leo Martin, an educator and expert on the early history of our nation, has been called "the last God-fearing guide in historic Plymouth, MA." While so many others are taking God out of the history books, Leo maintains that the Pilgrims and Founding Fathers established "one nation under God," founded on Judeo-Christian values. 

A true patriot and historian, Leo Martin is the Education Director at the Jenney Museum in Plymouth, MA, where he is known for his service giving historical tours and lectures dressed in Pilgrim costume. He is a champion of our nation's founding principles displayed in the National Monument to the Forefathers in Plymouth. His book, "Pilgrim Pursuit of Happiness" talks about the five liberties the Pilgrims were searching for when they left the Church of England and came to the New World and is the subject of one of the exhibits at the Jenney Museum. 

 An excellent storyteller, Leo and his wife Nancy speak around the country on a variety of subjects relating to the Pilgrims and the founding of our country. Leo and Nancy have been Married for forty-five years; have three grown children and four grandchildren. They have been working together at the Jenney Museum in Plymouth for eighteen years preserving the Christian heritage of our country.
