John Adams - The Series

Posted by : Chris Corley

My wife, Julianna, and I recently finished watching the 7 part series "John Adams", an original HBO film. The movie was based on the Pulitzer-prize winning biography written by David McCullough. It was a fascinating and seemingly authentic portrayal of one of the great leaders of The American Revolution.

What really struck me throughout the film was how the men leading the birth of our country were portrayed as real human beings. These guys were fighting for the independence of an entire country, and almost every step they took was uncharted territory. I found the relationship between John Adams and his wife, Abigail, incredibly fascinating. She was a major source of inspiration for him, both intellectually and emotionally.

The relationship between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson was only slightly less compelling. The dialogues and debates between the two were fascinating to see on screen, and there is something a little eerie to the fact that they both died on the same day - July 4, 1826 - exactly 50 years after the signing of The Declaration of Independence.

David McCullough has also written a more recent book "1776" which both my dad, Jay, and my brother, Stephen, have read and highly recommended. It's on my bookshelf, and I'm going to tackle it as soon as I finish my current book.

Did anyone else see the film "John Adams" ?

I'm curious to find out what blog system you happen to be working with? I'm experiencing some minor security issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more safeguarded.

Do you have any solutions?

The different types of dentist and what their specialties mean. Finding a few good dentists that meet your particular needs can be tough enough to do but finding a dentist that is a specialist can be even more difficult if you don't know where to look for a referral you can trust.

he history of online games dates back to the early days of packet-based computer networking in the 1970s,[5] An early example of online games are MUDs, including the first, MUD1, which was created in 1978 and originally confined to an internal network before becoming connected to ARPANet in 1980

It often happens that you realize the dental services were not on par only after the damage has been done. This is why it is important that you make sure that the dentist you are currently working with is good at what he is doing.

Die Angst vor dem Zahnarzt ist in den letzten Jahrzehnten bis zu einem gewissen Grad gerechtfertigt, bis die Eingriffe weit von dem entfernt sind, was sie waren, aber es besteht große Angst, dass Zahnbohrer durch andere Werkzeuge ersetzt werden, die freundlichere Luftabriebwerkzeuge sind sowie schmerzlose Plasmanadeln sind hervorragende Werkzeuge, mit denen die Verwendung des viel ängstlichen Zahnbohrers vermieden werden kann.

Health insurance coverage for business owners cost a great deal of because the high level of quality coverage powerful among a smallish people. Every individual around the group represents another type of level with financial risk in an insurance enterprise, and the following risk is definitely added right up and disseminate among a group. Large corps pay a great deal less because risk is definitely spread to this sort of large set.
