The difference made by moral courage

This mini-series is a bit challenging for those who don't remember some of the "routine" of the CIVIL_WAR (Ken Burns mini-series)documentary PBS episodes. For all of us who were impressed by the coordination of music with period still photography and enthusiastic people to give a personal "spin" on the history being recounted, this is a great tool to make history come alive. The two women have been under-appreciated and this well-timed presentation goes a long way to bringing them out of the shadows into the limelight. Kudos to the producers and backers of this educational documentary that gets it right - - women's voting mattered in a land that claims to be "home of the brave" !
