Towards the end of the 16th Century, in a quiet corner of England, well away from the mainstream of Elizabethan life, an apparently insignificant religious movement emerged. It was composed of a small band of largely anonymous people who believed in a simple form of worship, away from the ritualized trappings of the established Church of the day. These people were known as Separatists.
No one then could possibly have guessed what a huge impact these faithful Christians would have on world history. But when, in 1620, after years of sacrifice and hardship, they arrived on the shores of the New World in a tiny ship, they carried in their hearts a set of beliefs which would form the bedrock values for the world's most powerful democracy -- America, a nation engendered by the idea of freedom, and expression of religious belief.
History has given these remarkable people a name -- The Mayflower Pilgrims. This is their story.

I purchased this video to use in public high school level history & government classes. I was a little concerned by the cartoon figures on the cover but that is not how the video was. It is very well done with real people and pictures of real places. It is a great educational tool.
