LadyH, I’ve recently become aware of this show. With all your booklurnin’, would you recommend it as (a) good to watch and (b) a realistic depiction of that time and those events? Having been educated in the UK, I know little or nothing of the period; the history syllabus here devotes about 90 seconds of a child’s entire education to the subject. When I watched Star Trek as a kid I had no idea of the meaning behind ship names like Ticonderoga, Valley Forge, and Lexington - it was quite startling to find out later that they were all significant names. So, will this show help my ignorance?
