Did You Know?

Goofs

In various scenes depicting the Mayflower, the ship is featured to carry the Union Jack. This is incorrect because that flag was not adopted until 1801. Furthermore the United Kingdom (the union of England and Scotland), which it represents was not created until 1707. The only flag that the ship would have carried in 1620 was the English flag which is a white banner with a red cross known as Saint George's Cross. See more »

More credible with better commentators
14 December 2018 | by marktriplettSee all my reviews

Real effort by Donegan (historian) to vilify the pilgrims who were simply seeking freedom of worship. Could have been more credible if some of the commentators were less ridgidly biased and more truthful. But, thats what we've come to expect from post modern film makers.
