The program reenacts not only the Pilgrims' religious services but the perilous journey undertaken by just over a hundred men, women, and children in the Mayflower and Speedwell. On November 9th 1620, land was spotted- Cape Cod on the east coast of North America- over 3,000 miles from the start of their journey in Nottinghamshire. This program explains that this brave group is far more significant than just the "founders" of Thanksgiving and that their quest for religious freedom matters far more than a celebratory harvest feast. The tale ends with the historic Mayflower Compact, the first self-governing European agreement in America. 30 minutes on DVD. Elementary grades.
