Finally we get to Washington, D.C. where a bunch of people turn up to talk with Kirk. They make excellent points, but unlike the previous experts/guests are not identified. Are we supposed to just know who they are? It’s distracting and the camera work gets spastic here, as if they’re eager to get it over with. Still, as history lessons go, Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure is a good one and more engaging than most.

Monumental will be shown as part of a one-night event on Tuesday, March 27, at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT/5:30 p.m. MT/8:00 p.m. PT (tape delayed). The special in-theater event will also include live performances from popular Christian music artists.


  • Drugs/Alcohol: None.
  • Language/Profanity: Hell is mentioned as a literal place, not as profanity.
  • Sex/Nudity: None.
  • Violence: Some discussion of imprisonment, punishment, etc. as related to both pilgrims and their dealings with Native Americans.
  • Spiritual Themes: The call to action is clear: Christianity came and created liberty, which was the framework for the ideas that followed. The responsibility for freedom is in our hands; we’ve got the game plan, and we suffer consequences when we stray from it.
