I've studied the American Revolution fairly well but i see the History Channel has a show about it today for 5 hours starting at 8.00 A.M. to 1.00 P.M. EST so it should be interesting for those who like that era as i could always learn more myself.

Most of the time the History Channel is garbage so it's rare we get to see a good long show on an important historical event.

My warning to you is that the second to last episode basically recaps the seven or so episodes you previously watched so don't waste your time with that one...

I missed it!, I'll have to try to order it later. I just wish film-makers would portray the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but then it wouldnt be Hollywood would it?
I am particularly interested in the Revolution, as it occured 50 years after my family had arrived in America (1724), and we were located in a very interesting neighborhood in Halifax Co VA. There was a guy named John Hancock, a Benjamin Harrison, a Thomas Paine, and a guy with the last name Matlock living on our block in 1771. Just what are the odds those men were the famous ones? Hmmmm... I know we weren't famous, but we were obviously defending freedom in this country since we arrived, and for that, I am very proud. I am a Moore and I approve this message. I hope I can find my Patrick Moore who patented land on Miry Creek in 1746, who came from Ulster(?), or was he a grandson of Sir William Mure of Rowallan? Maybe I really am a Scotish American Princess..lol.
