Amazing Documentary

Have any of you seen the PBS documentary film The Civil War by Ken Burns? It is one of the coolest things I have ever watched. I remember watching it when it aired, and later on when I was taking Civil War History in college, I watched it on DVD. I really loved the comprehensive nature of the film. History is so hard to explain lineally, but Burns is thorough and succinct. I would highly recommend this film to anyone with an interest in the Civil War. Just make sure you have a lot of time because it has a run time of 660 minutes.

Ken Burns also did a documentary about baseball. I've got to watch that.
