Follow Kirk Cameron across Europe and the U.S. as he seeks to discover the people, places and principles that made America the freest, most prosperous and generous nation the world has ever known.

I really enjoyed watching this, learned a lot that was never taught in school. Highly recommended.

Can't get the link to work, search on Amazon and YouTube for Monumental.

Watched this documentary. It was outstanding!

It is incredible how much of our American history and culture have been stolen from us. The movie is all about restoring our civilization by discovering our past.

The National Monument to the Forefathers was originally known as Pilgrim monument, but if you search for Pilgrim monument, most often the other 1910 monument shows up.

I am still amazed I had never heard of or seen the monument before.

That monument is pretty fantastic. And man, thats a ton of granite. lol
The plan of the principal pedestal is octagonal, with four small, and four large faces; from the small faces project four buttresses. On the main pedestal stands the heroic figure of "Faith" with her right hand pointing toward heaven and her left hand clutching the Bible. Upon the four buttresses also are seated figures emblematical of the principles upon which the Pilgrims founded their Commonwealth; counter-clockwise from the east are Morality, Law, Education, and Liberty. Each was carved from a solid block of granite, posed in the sitting position upon chairs with a high relief on either side of minor characteristics. Under "Morality" stand "Prophet" and "Evangelist"; under "Law" stand "Justice" and "Mercy"; under "Education" are "Youth" and "Wisdom"; and under "Liberty" stand "Tyranny Overthrown" and "Peace". On the face of the buttresses, beneath these figures are high reliefs in marble, representing scenes from Pilgrim history. Under "Morality" is "Embarcation"; under "Law" is "Treaty"; under "Education" is "Compact"; and under "Freedom" is "Landing". Upon the four faces of the main pedestal are large panels for records.
