The Pilgrims


Episode Info

The story of the Pilgrims, who founded Plymouth Colony in what's now Plymouth, Mass., in 1620, is told via insights from historians and dramatic recreations. Often seen as the founding fathers of America, the small group of religious separatists (they opposed the Church of England) faced much hardship in the New World: starvation, disease and death were commonplace.
