I was blessed to receive a review copy of this two-night National Geographic event that chronicles the Plymouth settlement through the first Thanksgiving. WHAT A JOURNEY!!! You will be given a realistic look into the lives of the Saints and Strangers that traveled across the ocean and founded Plymouth colony. It is filled with well-developed characters and a fabulous and realistic Native American cast!
The people who came to America's shores by way of the Mayflower should be remembered for their sacrifice and their bravery! This two-night television drama captures their experiences in a way that will cement this in your heart and mind. You won't soon forget this initial contact that the English have with the Native Americans!
I know I have gained a greater respect for these pilgrims as well as the Native Americans whom they encountered. I've also been given a renewed thirst for knowledge of the events leading up to the first Thanksgiving. To say there was much to be thankful for is a severe understatement!! This is a television event I hope will become an annual commemoration of our founding fathers!
This is a most excellent film!! I HIGHLY recommend that you mark November 22 and 23rd on your calendar and make time to experience this two night event!! You will be VERY GLAD you did!!
