I have a 5"th grader" that is studying American History in-depth this year. I saw this and we watched it together. It kept her attention and led to awesome conversation after. She's watched it more then once. What I enjoyed most was the way Kirk brought honor to the families who gave everything for their children's children so they could be/ find freedom.
If you are interested in an accurate account of American History for family, home-school and just for your personal interest, this is a movie that you do not want to miss out on viewing!!!! If you are interested in knowing the true account of the Pilgrims journey to America that you may have missed out on learning yourselves and that has been distorted from the truth, THIS IS IT! My husband and I have seen it over 10 times in the last two years and have shared it with friends and family. This year all our married children got their own family copy. My husband and I both find MONUMENTAL to be one of our most favorite documentaries. It rises up courage and strength and perseverance that we can stand strong and committed during difficult times. Please do not leave this page with out ordering your selves a copy. :)
A friend of mine loaned me her copy of Monumental. I loved the movie so much that I bought 6 of the movies. On for myself and the rest for Christmas gifts. If you think Thanksgiving is just Indians, the pilgrims and turkey, you must see this movie.
