I have McDonald’s & Chernow’s books in my bookshelves I am “exposed” to Hamilton.
Look I have walked out of Shakespeare plays because they do it in modern costuming!
I am probably one of the few FR’ers who dislike “Saving Private Ryan” & Mel Gibson’s “The Patriot” because of its total warping of the history. I have particular disdain for “The Patriot” because of the blending of three Revolutionary War heroes (Francis Marion, Daniel Morgan & Thomas Sumter) into one character. Those guys not good enough for Gibson? Gibson couldn’t carry their tobacco pouches!
I am sorry but I find fake history demeaning particularly when we know the true history like Private Ryan & the Southern Revolutionary theater. To me the Ryan movie story since it’s so “upside down” insults those who died there. Way way too many people believe it & “The Patriot” are true history! You’re going to have people thanks to this play thinking Hamilton was the first Broadway song & dance man! We are now in an almost totally visual society nobody reads! People can only tolerate information if it jiggles their fancy! I refuse to bend that way!
