A few nostalgia postings about growing up in the 60s and discovering American history. If you don't know it's a comedy set in a Fort after the Civil War but historically accurate it ain't. This was another big influence on me as a youngster - a recent Coen brothers film had the kid obsessed by F Troop - I was like that, a fan..well I was only about 6. It's interesting to note on this, the pilot, how similar the plot is to 'Dances with Wolves'...well almost. Wiki on the series that ran from 65 to 67.
