Have you ever suspected that the "history" you learned in school left out a lot of important things, this film by Kirk Cameron will turn your suspicions into certainties.
We know all about the Pilgrims and the Mayflower-right? Thanksgiving and all that: yeah, we know.
But as a matter of fact, we don't know much.
Monumental is intended as a cure for America's amnesia about her past. It tells the story of a miracle-how a handful of settlers in a leaky, crowded, slowly sinking ship came to an uncharted wilderness on the threshold of winter, with little more than the clothes on their backs; how half of them died of want and hardship before the first spring came; and how, within the space of a single lifetime, they founded a modern city (Boston), a university (Harvard), and some two hundred towns and churches, all of which are still here today, some 400 years later. There is nothing else in history to match it-so much achievement, in so little time, by so few people with so little in the way of resources. The only resource they possessed in abundance was their Christian faith: and upon that rock, they built a mighty nation.
These were the Pilgrims. America was their miracle; and Monumental is the story of all you thought you knew about this chapter of history, but didn't.
