John Adams

Just watched the first episode of the seven part miniseries on John Adams, the second President of the States.

I have studied Washington and Jefferson a lot, but little on Adams. The miniseries is excellent, giving a good background to the American revolution and the first 50 years of the States. Adams has generally been overlooked by modern historians, but in recent times his reputation has been rising as he is re-evaluated.

I’m not sure if any NZ station plans to show the miniseries here, as will probably be modest for a historical series.  But I hope they do, as it is an excellent production (to date).
