Forgotten Voyage on DVD

The Mormon Sea Trek That Sparked the Gold Rush
A banished people... A perilous journey... and an extraordinary discovery.

In 1846 a clan of Mormon families fleeing religious persecution embarked on an unprecedented six-month sea journey. On board the ship Brooklyn, nearly 250 men, women and children sailed from New York City around the treacherous tip of South America and up to California. They survived horrific storms and suffocating heat, becoming the first group of American families to go West by sea. Discover how they accidentally settled San Francisco for America - and how they ignited the California Gold Rush.
