    Really looking forward to three part Grant, bio/pic starting on History Channel tonight. Highly underrated American General and hero. Should be good.

    so far so good. Grant has always been one of my favorite American historical figures.

    I actually visited Shiloh several years back. Took in Gettysburg and Antietam on the same extended trip.

    Grant is the best. It always bothered me how much we celebrated traitors like Robert E. Lee and seem to forget about Grant.

    They have definitely shown the concept of history being written by the winners to be optimistic at best.

    Nice to see the History Channel back to making programming not pertaining to aliens or Nostradamus.

    Gettysburg, actually. A lot more to see there. Their museum of artifacts that were found there is extensive. I was particularly fascinated by a story the guide told of one of the artifacts found a couple of years after the battle in Devil's Den. It was a confederate sharpshooter's rifle and shortly before we visited, a couple passed through and recognized the gun as belonging to one of their ancestors. That claim was subsequently verified. If I remember correctly, the ancestor survived the battle, but lost his gun in the chaos.

    Especially compared to other Union generals, specifically McClellan who was a complete p**** and showpony.

    My only beef is that they took a good, 45 minute show and turned it into a 2 hour show with all of the commercials. Holy ****!
