As a history major in college, I am thrilled by this. Hopefully many kids will finally get the firm grasp on American history that so many are currently lacking. I sent a link to my principal (middle school) so she can get enough copies - free from History Channel - to give each social studies teacher.
After watching the first epesode, you were right about it. They did have some little known facts but showed the same old myths as fact. I will pass on the rest of the series. Discovery's LIFE is must see program.
