|I really enjoy David McCullough's writting. I even signed up for HBO for a month just so we can watch this presentation. I was not disapointed. It seems to be staying very close to the book so far. For a Civil war note. Is the S Carolina delegate Ruffin related to the Edwin Ruffin of S Carolina who was such a strong session advocate? I may be reaching a bit, but does anyone see a common thread between John Adams and Harry Trueman? Both were very common men who did not see a lot of grey in life. They both saw right or wrong black or white. Basically farmers who in spite of strong morals and lack of polish became president. Sorry to run on but that comparison came to me last night. Also recall that John Adams also represented the Slaves from Amastead(spelling) when they were claimed as spoils by officers of the U.S. Navy.
