Rev. C.F.W. Walther was a man who sacrificed his homeland, his health, and nearly his life for the freedom to speak freely, to believe freely, and to live freely.
The Pilgrims on the Mayflower were not the only colonists to flee religious persecution in a far-off land. In 1839 more than 700 Saxons left their homeland to build a colony in the new lands of America where they could speak freely, worship freely, and believe freely. The challenging journey across the Atlantic and up the Mississippi River is documented, as well as their initial struggles in these new lands. Out of this group emerges a great leader who guides the group through their trials and tribulations and builds the foundations for an international church body (LCMS), and a world-class Seminary, as well as starting magazines and several churches. This film tells his story – the story of CFW Walther.
