Thank god for History Channel for creating shows that enrich out minds instead of insulting it. This is easily one of the most insightful and provoking in the schedule. While "Pawn Stars" and "American Pickers" may give us stories behind objects, this serires pulls the lost tales of history out from something we never see... except on a map. We get to hear about the characters who created the country and the decisions that shaped our states. It's fascinating and entertaining, and Brian Unger with his wit and observations don't let it get boring. I love this series!
