:-) no worries, but yeah itís about the life and times of our founding father, very engrossing

Goes into a lot of detail about the battles he fought both as a British subject, then of course later as a rebel

Itís interspersed with history experts sharing various insights, all in all it is great television

One of my co-workers was talking about this today. Who knew History Channel still actually did history? It's gotten so bad that I don't even check it when channel surfing.

I guess I'll have to check when it's on again.

This. I can't remember the last time I watched the History channel, and it used to be a go to for me.

But this sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out...

When do they get to the part about George and Bigfoot burying the Oak Island treasure in Area 51?

I always hesitate on docudramas. Every time I think it ought to be good it isnít.

Iíll give this one a go. As long as they didnít monkey with the history I wonít complain too much.

Finished this last night and I give it an A.
Very well done. Produced by Doris Goodwin.
The whole series really drives home the point on how fragile the birth of this nation really was.
Washington is more then the Father of our Nation, dude was a stud.
Also, is it just me or did the actor who portrayed Washington look like a weird Ted Koppel?

I highly recommend 1776 by David McCullough to anyone that enjoyed this. It only covers one year but does a better job than the show.

Agreed on all fronts here, it was SO touch and go so many different times... particularly the fog rolling in at just the right time for crossing the Delaware

I also found it very interesting how one historian noted that if the Brits had just given him the commission he wanted, our history would likely be very, very different

It didn’t cross my mind that he resembled Koppel, but you’re right he does... albeit with a very strong “Roman nose” as I believe it’s called

Recorded all 3 nights
Have watched it twice. No commercials. Perfect.
Micheal Medved had a history audio set he used to sell. His "coverage" of the American Revolution is really good.

probably a bunch of malarky propaganda. I watched it. some might be truth, some not.
its hilarious that they point out he learned/made up a loophole to keep his slaves from the 6th month freedom law. Yeah, the father of American Bureaucracy lol.
