Of course, it is an absurd question, but apparently the producer and writer of the upcoming TV mini-series, “To Appomattox” wants to know. An email circular is going around to Civil War round tables and reenacting groups to try to gauge the number so as to guarantee a financial return. I commented on this series a few weeks ago, but this program is shaping up to be a real doozy.
First off, if you are making a movie or mini-series to appeal to Civil War buffs it is going to suck big time. If we ever do get a chance to see it we can rest assured that a sufficient number of Americans are still interested in the Civil War.
