Storyline

It is often said that winners write prevailing histories. Bias and inaccuracies of memory lead to legends supporting the views of the winners. In Legends and Lies-The Patriots, the authors differentiate the facts of events from contemporary popular opinions which have survived to the present day. The character studies are insightful and do much to explain the motivations of citizens to become Patriots opposing the British. The dramatization makes the series come alive for adults and children.

Civil War
7 May 2018 | by bh8811See all my reviews

The way that they portrayed Grant was so historically inaccurate. Kilmeade and o'Reilly Are NOT historians and should just stay quiet, keeping their revisionist history to themselves.
