Another episode of “Civil War Journal” from the good old days when the History Channel actually had history programming.
So, wait, you’re saying that “Ancient Aliens” ain’t history?
And neither is Ice Road Truckers. 🙂
History on TV has to be entertaining, and unoffensive, does that take priority over facts?
What I’m wondering is, are pre college teachers relying on TV history rather than doing the hard core face the facts research that it takes find real history? I don’t know because I’ve been out of school for a long time. I do remember history being taught by those with nonhistory majors.
