Blogging John Adams
A heads-up for my readers--J.L. Bell over at Boston 1775 has a been crafting a wonderful series of posts about the HBO series John Adams. Bell seems to be enjoying the series but is quick to use his comprehensive knowledge of the topic and the time period to poke holes in many of the details of the TV show, as Boston Globe columnist Alex Beam notes in this appreciation of both the series and of Bell's blog. What Bell is doing is a model of historical blogging at its best and most relevant.
I promise to do a similar set of posts when HBO launches it blockbuster dramatic epic Spokane Garry--the Red River Years.
