Movie Info

Every historian knows the tale of the Pilgrim's journey to the New World - but where does legend start and reality begin? In this expansive, three-hour look at the arduous voyage to a new land, the award-winning filmmakers of A&E attempt to deliver the final word on the historical trek that would forever change the face of history. Scholastic research combines with historical re-enactments to truly draw the viewer in as the popular myths promoted in elementary school classrooms are methodically disproved and the true tale comes to life more vividly than ever thought possible. The passengers aboard the Scrooby, the Leiden, and the Plymouth gradually dwindle in numbers as they sail across unfamiliar waters and land on strange shores, only to find that life in their new surroundings is equally as unforgiving. After dining alongside Squanto and Samoset at the historic first Thanksgiving, viewers are afforded the opportunity to explore just how that historical meal marked the beginning of a remarkable, and sometimes tragic, new era.
