Storyline

It is often said that winners write prevailing histories. Bias and inaccuracies of memory lead to legends supporting the views of the winners. In Legends and Lies-The Patriots, the authors differentiate the facts of events from contemporary popular opinions which have survived to the present day. The character studies are insightful and do much to explain the motivations of citizens to become Patriots opposing the British. The dramatization makes the series come alive for adults and children.

Not what it should be
19 April 2015 | by A_Real_Hip_DudeSee all my reviews

When someone claims to be dispelling histories lies it would be best if they had information to offer that would bring the truth to light. Unfortunately, this show, which I was eager to see, only perpetuated many of the problems with historical research of the old west. Bill makes claims that are supposed to be laying down the truth for all of us in the dark. Problem is, he merely takes a point of view on an issue that is still undecided by both historians and historical information and proclaims it to be established fact now that he has said so (Thanks Bill, glad you could do that for us!).

How does Bill O'Reilly know more about Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp than the hard working researchers who have dug and dug in order to bring forth the most information possible to this point? Obviously he doesn't, but the problem is that this doesn't stop him from delivering his claims with bloviating conviction.

If a person watches this show for entertainment, great; there are a lot of westerns I enjoy that are factually mistaken. But if you watch this to learn something, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, for your sake and the good of our collective community intelligence, do no repeat what you see on this show and assume you are passing along wisdom.
