I just finished watching the HBO miniseries John Adams. It wasn't really the best series that I have ever watched, but it certainly was intriguing. It really made me think more about that time period. What I did really like about it was the relationships between the founding fathers. I did learn a lot about how they interacted. I didn't know that their was such an in depth relationship between Jefferson and Adams. It was very, very cool to learn about that. It was nice to get a feel for what these very important men were like. To often in history books we just learn facts. I liked feeling like I got to know them as individuals.
I say check out one of these books, and save some money with our Audible coupon while you do. I know I am excited to learn even more about this great president.
