    now might be a good time for some network to think about producing a series of miniseries about the entirety of US history, from the pre-colonial to colonial to revolutionary era to today (well, today as of 2026), culminating with a history that has not yet happened, and including of course Obama's election.

    Proposed series:

    1 - Pre-colonial: Antiquity to 1607 (including Vikings)
    2 - Colonial: 1607-1770
    3 - Revolutionary Era/Early Republic: 1770-1828
    3 - Age of Jackson/Populism: 1828-1860
    4 - Civil War/Reconstruction: 1860-1876
    5 - Gilded Age: 1876-1900
    6 - Progressive Era: 1900-1920
    7 - Jazz Age/New Deal: 1920-1945
    8 - Post-War Era: 1945-1968
    9 - Turbulent Years: 1968-1980
    10 - Conservative Era: 1980-2008
    11 - A New Hope: 2008-?

    Obviously, subject to much modification as era lines blur.

      of the history of Native American groups, too.

      This remains a huge moral issue for Americans and for the nation that needs to be faced and corrected somehow.

      I have no solutions at all, but am increasingly aware of the multitude of injustices that have yet to be righted.
