Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pedestrian and shallow Of course I learned a few things from listening for only an hour. But they were mostly trivialities about the personalities involved. No meaningful discussion of the big picture. Very bad value for $14.95. Probably the most disappointing of the many GCs I've listened to-- most of which are excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite interesting; unique topic I have enjoyed many of the Great Courses audio only. Most have been a series of lectures, but this course was just one long lecture. I am rather familiar with American History, but I learned a great deal from this course. The in depth discussion about Thaddeus Stevens was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This video discusses a critical period in US history that I did not know about. My school texts omitted it completely. The video was very enlightening, well documented. I will watch it more than once. There was more information than I could catch in one sitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going to the Devil: The Impeachment of 1868 I enjoyed this course very much. I love American History and this incident is something I knew little about. Seeing the pictures of the participants and hearing their words spoked by VO actors was awesome. Great course!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too many anecdotes It was good overall, but too many anecdotes were used, making it appear to be biased in some respects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertaining and Informative It packed a lot of clear, interesting and heart wrenching information into a concise and clear narrative
