Reminiscing for the Nostalgic

I’m reflecting on tonight’s finale of Ken Burns’ The Roosevelts. I have so much respect for everything Teddy, Franklin, and Eleanor did for this country and the rest of the world. Just like Ken Burns said he did as he was putting this documentary together, I cried when each of them died. I love history so much; I become attached to people I never met and times I never experienced. I miss them. I appreciate anything that brings me closer to them, such as Ken Burns terrific documentaries.

David Bianculli says the new 14-hour PBS documentary series The Roosevelts: An Intimate History  is Ken Burns' best yet:

"Each of these Roosevelts, if studied individually, would be fascinating. But looking at them together like this is a revelation – a sort of storytelling synergy, where the whole ends up being even more valuable than the sum of its parts."

I’ll forever think of Ken Burns’ The Civil War when I hear this song. It’s a hauntingly gorgeous piece of Americana.

An excellent program, for those of you who haven’t seen it.
