I bought this course within minutes of the advertisement hitting my inbox. TGC and the Smithsonian? Yes, I had to have this. And it did not disappoint! Like a bag of potato chips, I couldn't stop at a single bite. This course was watched in chunks, several lectures at a time. It was THAT good! The presenter is articulate, passionate and engaging. From the first lecture, a history of the "Star Spangled Banner", I knew this was something special. There are plenty of visual aids (including actual museum pieces brought into the studio) and the stories are pure Americana. For a light but serious look into American History, look no further!
