I absolutely love how Outlander has already taught me a lot about history, first about Scottish one (having been several times in Scotland in my life, I already knew some, but lots of things were also new) and now American. The later books now made me really interested in American history, but I find myself having many big gaps in knowledge about the ARW, important events, battles, famous historical figures, aso. I always loved history lessons in school, but we never talked much in detail about this part of world history (I guess anything I know about American history in this period comes from playing Assassin’s Creed III, lol).
There are surely lots of documentaries and the like out there about this topic - anything you can recommend? (Thanks in advance!)
