When In The Course Of Human Events


If you haven't put the John Adams miniseries in your Netflix queue, I am telling you to get thee to the website.

If you don't use Netflix, then I don't know where to get thee to, but it should be wherever you can get your hands on these dvds.
Rob and I have only watched the first two episodes, up to the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, but we are hooked. The acting is excellent, the facts are accurate, and the material is our history. It's riveting.

  1. I think I would love it, but I'm not sure about Husband. He likes Civil War history more. Have you read Rise to Rebellion by Jeff Shaara? It is a fictional telling of the events leading up to the war and it is wonderful.
