FIVE FOUNDING FATHERS FEATURES I CONSUMED THIS YEAR
It's been a couple of good years for this material. I'm a sucker for a tri-corner hat and the occasional powdered wig.
- •Hamilton Original Broadway soundtrackMy household is obsessed with this--we are hoping to go see the play on Broadway later this year.
- •The Adams Chronicles TV Series1976 PBS special now on DVD. Slow-paced (think Upstairs Downstairs not Downton Abbey)
- •1776 Novel by David McCulloughAmazing page-turner, considering we all know the outcome. From the author of John Adams.
- •Sons of Liberty TV SeriesCompelling three part mini series from the history channel that felt more like a super hero origin than historical teleplay.
- •1776 the musicalMusical by Peter Stone. Perhaps corny and dated but still a joy to behold and worth seeking out if only to celebrate the 4th of July.
