I'm happy to hear that you two ladies enjoyed it as well :)

It was very good.

And David McCullough is a great writer. You'll enjoy his books.

Thanks :wave: Chernow's biographies/histories (Rockefeller & JP Morgan) (and reputably, Alexander Hamilton & Washington) are also first class.

oh thanks Miss S. :)

I love this miniseries. Everyone was really great in it.

Loved the interaction between Adams and Jefferson.

Franklin was always amusing, too.

I was surprised by their blatantly negative treatment of Hamilton- he was as critical to the formation of the early USA as the other FF. They could have explored Washington's respect for his views and his achievements. :-)

Yeah, I was too, but I guess the miniseries was John Adams view of Hamilton.

The whole Federalist vs. Democrat- Republican conflict could have been depicted- it would have been interesting. I think that the decision to depict Hamilton in that manner was probably accountable to the miniseries' creative direction- frankly it seemed too 21st century driven!

I would love to see mini-series based on each of the founding fathers

I agree:)

I think as far as 19th-20th century presidents go FDR, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Wilson, Jackson, and Eisenhower all need miniseries. It would be educational and inspiring to kids in general, and can only do good.
