Suffering & Violence: A Story of Survival

American Experience’s The Pilgrims by director Ric Burns is proving to be a favorite with viewers as it explores the history of our nation’s origins in an epic tale of converging forces.  At PBS LearningMedia you’ll find video and support materials from this film about the Pilgrims, who survived the voyage, waded ashore through cold waters and then faced a brutal first winter in Plymouth.

Students can explore the causes and effects of this first winter when half of the Pilgrims died by spring from exposure and infections in The Pilgrims: The First Winter at PBS LearningMedia.
