Thanksgiving Carnival: History Channel's Desperate Crossing

"Every American knows the story of the Pilgrims, their courageous voyage on the Mayflower and the first Happy Thanksgiving. But the homogenized and sanitized history learned as children and revisited every Thanksgiving holiday bears faint resemblance to the actual people and dramatic events of that desperate time. This three-hour special uses dramatic re-enactments based on original source material to bring to life the true story of the Puritans' terrible plight."
This showed premiered last year and will be repeated over the next few days
