Iíve been watching The History Channelís The Revolution for the past few weeks. I suppose you would classify it as docudrama. It is quite fascinating. Iíll be the first to admit there are some gaps in my American History knowledge, particularly the revolution, that Iím not comfortable with. We covered and I learned much about Breedís/Bunker Hill, Trenton, Fort Ticonderoga, and the winter at Valley Forge in grammar school and high school. There wasnít much new there for me but the Battle of Monmouth, the siege of Charleston, and the winter at Morristown were events we didnít cover very well. Good TV.
