Glad to hear it, not many young people(besides myself of course) that are interested in history.
What I like is every day they'll look through the Cable Schedule and look for something I might like and record it.
My son recorded this FANTASTIC 3 part series on Vietnam, had lots of original footage. We had a great time watching it together. It's going to suck when he gets married and moves out.
True story: We went to Williamsburg 4 times on vacation (Stopping at Antietam, Fredricksburg, Gettysburg, and Spotsylvania Courthouse on the way. (Rode horses for 3 hours on the G Burg Battlefield.)
At Williamsburg we offered Busch Gardens all 4 times we went and all 4 times were told can't we find historical stuff to do? We hit Yorktown twice, Jamestown 3 times (Actually helping archeologists once, my daughter still remembers it!) All the Charles River Mansions, toured Presidents houses and spent many happy hours ghost hunting in Williamsburg. In fact as adults they STILL want me to take them there. If you go there. Do the Ghosts Of Williamsburg Tour, the BEST story telling tour in the US.
We've toured top to bottom two WW2 Battleships and have walked Savannah all through the historical district (BTW if you ever get a chance go to Savannah, stay at the Marshall House, have them park your car and walk everywhere, Also remember to eat at the Pirate House and think you are walking on wood that was there in 1700 also the food there is fantastic.)
