Yes, that is Nick and me being terribly awkward on camera. We were finishing up a business lunch with our new Historical Adviser, Keith Harris, and he insisted on putting us on camera. We’re very excited about this collaboration. We find Keith’s vast historical knowledge along with his embrace of technology refreshing for the world we’ve been entering. Please check out his blog, CosmicAmerica, to learn a bit more about him and some great tidbits about American history.
Excerpt: “The usual depiction of battle goes something like this – thousands of well-fed soldiers (with nice uniforms and good teeth) marching valiantly to their fate, clutching their chests when they fall, or catapulted into the air by shells exploding on the ground (as opposed to in the air, which is how things really happened).”
Monday, May 30th Gettysburg by Ridley Scott will be premiering on The History Channel at 9pm. We’ve heard a lot about the inaccuracies in this movie. What about you? What are your thoughts? Will you be watching?
I know it looks gorgeous but not sure if we’ll be tuning in.
