    Washington

    The History Channel is running a 3 night series on George Washington and the Revolutionary War.Very interesting.A lot of facts and insights that I previously did not know.If you can stand the occasional appearance of Bill Clinton giving his opinion it's worth the time spent watching it.

    I was watching that. Just the sound of Bill Clinton's voice, was nauseating.

    While I do enjoy the show, there's a LOT of personal conjecture from the "historians."

    There was one, who seems to absolutely LOATHE John Adams.

    I think there is a LOT of conjecture in this series, but, it isn't too bad, and, you can pretty much discern it as soon as they speak....

    I know what you mean.That female professor from Yale,with all the hand gestures when she speaks,it's obvious she's a true lefty believer.

    No one on the left should be allowed to comment on anything pertaining to American History. They loath everything about it and are nothing but domestic enemies. They hate the founders and the constitution.

    I've watched both episodes and will record the last one to watch later. I find it interesting because I live in the area where Forbes Road was build in western Pennsylvania, the same area that later as President, Washington set up his headquarters to squelch the Whiskey Rebellion.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.
