The Pilgrims: American Experience
Just in time for Thanksgiving, American Experience is presenting The Pilgrims, a Ric Burns film that explores the converging forces, circumstances, personalities, and events that propelled a group of English men and women to journey across the Atlantic in 1620. Known for the quality of his films and his unique and detailed takes on familiar history, Ric Burns promises to "strip away myth" and bring the pilgrims to life, revealing individuals far different from those imagined in our national memory.
With distinct and often riveting personal histories, passionate religious beliefs, and the will to survive -- even through violent means -- this Pilgrims narrative reveals the real history of our nation's beginnings.
The Pilgrims: American Experience will be aired on PBS, Tuesday, November 24, 2015, at 8 PM.
