One could not learn history from architecture any more than one could learn it from books. Statues, inscriptions, memorial stones, the names of streets ? anything that might throw light upon the past had been systematically altered. (1.8.85)

A little late in posting. What a great ending - we won. I must admit, I miss this show.
When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you - then you know your nation is doomed.

Noah Wyle seems to have a love of history and this country.  His shows incorporate this.  I also like The Librarians.  It's a bit goofy, but it's got lots of bits of history, mythology, etc.

Did you notice he worked Alexis de Tocqueville into a couple of the episodes in the last season?
