You know, I had thought about watching it-- I actually thought about having my 11-year-old watch it with me-- but my husband said it was dreadful.

Yeah, I was excited to see it since the History Channel doesn't show much history any more, but I agree. Not very good.

They barely covered the Indian Removal and the War of 1812 but spent extra time talking about the Donner Party and things that have since been proven to be incorrect. They spent lot of time on the Gold Rush.

I do think the Donner party is a significant event, but not more than the War of 1812 or the Indian Removal.

They also showed things out of order.
