    Q9 General Headache

    No, I didn't, but we don't get History Channel anyway. [​IMG] Too bad - that, National Geographic, and Discovery are my favorite channels. We get none of them.

    I'm guessing that it would have provided me quite a bit of material to blog about. [​IMG]

    Thanks for alerting me to it, though. [​IMG]

    Q9; fill me in. History buff in general or Civil War era specifically? I'm a big nut for Colonial Era stuff myself, but seldom see coverage on that era on TV, except for the Thanksgiving specials, which I hardly count. [​IMG]

    Quote:*Cough*Warofnorthernaggression*cough* [​IMG] Yes. That era specifically is what interests me the most, though the colonial era up to the War interests me. I consider it the single most important chapter of American history, as it re-shaped the very nature of our government.

    Q9 what is your opinion on the Mexican-American War? Do you think Polk wanted to fight or he did it to protect the U.S.?

    I always heard it was the war of southern submission.[​IMG] Reshaped the govt and a lot of peoples lives.

    WWII was better documented it was the first real filmed war and visually informative as the next best thing would be the actual smell. I am also a WWII buff.It was fought as a war to win.
