Thanks for alerting us to all these programs, @JerseyBart . I spent the evening watching some of the older videos and am really coming to appreciate them. The ones I've seen so far were very informative and entertaining at the same time. The ones I liked best from the ones I watched tonight: @Eric Wittenberg about the Battle of Trevilian Station ("Custer's first Last Stand" :D) and William "Jack" Davis about Grant's and Lee's leadership ("If the war had been up to McClellan and Johnston, they would still be retreating from each other today until they bumped into each other from behind somewhere near Taiwan!" :rofl:).

Just picked out three more that I'm going to watch. This is gonna be a long night... :laugh:
