Horatio Gates &c. on History Channel, 30 Dec

Tomorrow the History Channel is scheduled to air a program on Gen. Horatio Gates, commander of the Continental forces at Saratoga. The program will probably feature comments by A Student of History, John Maass. After that comes a program on Gen. Nathanael Greene, who also followed Gates as commander of the Continental Army in the southern theater.

Hi, I haven't much to say about the History Channel programs other than perhaps I will see them? My real point was just to let you know that I'm reading this blog, and enjoy it very much.

I'm a 2nd-year college student, studying politics and either religion or history, and I especially love early American history/political history. I'm actually going to be interning at the John Adams Library Project in Boston in a few days, so-- keep up the good work, and huzzah for Revolutionary Boston!
