Yes, last night I noticed Seneca Square (also known as The Federales are Coming. Not sure about its applicability.) I also heard another very familiar fiddle tune- at first I thought it was Ashokan Farewell but that wasn't it. What was it?
I too am a fan of Ken Burns. He does a thorough job; his use of photographs in everything I have seen him do is fantastic.
The monotone of the man's voice who does most of the narration in the current series is off-putting to me. I don't care for gushing or the Oxyclean-purveyor approach but there surely is a happy medium somewhere.
