America: The History of Us - on The History Channel


I have wanted to catch this and every chance I get something has come up. I am sure I will catch it in replay. I think with history you really have to look into a few sources. I never noticed how much things have changed in presentation since my school days and my childrens till I took a good look at the schools textbooks. I doubt that TV is that much different. Being a bit of a history buff you really do have to do your own research to get a real feel for the events and even then there are things that may not be exactly as recorded. Sad but thats what perspective and interpertation seems to do over time. Don't you know thats what makes the past the good ole days?
