I love historical fiction...no problem as long as it's marketed that way. My pet peeve is television and movies which fail to let the viewer know what they're watching is a screenwriter's adaptation of a story based on history. So-called "documentaries" which are really poorly researched accounts from a biased point of view come to mind. I've seen enough posts on civil war sites in which people defend Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain as a great general simply because they saw Gettysburg. All of these books and films contain an element of truth...I just wish I didn't have to spend my time educating kids who think they know it all because they saw "Young Guns"
