I'm not sure if this is what Pam is looking for, but following up a little bit on what Susan said - one of the multitude of reasons that this period of time fascinates me is because of the photographs. We have a pretty good idea of how the characters of the Revolutionary period looked, like Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, etc. However, we don't know for sure exactly what they looked like, nor what the everyday Joe looked like. We know exactly what the main characters and the everyday soldier from the CW looked like - and they look like us. That to me, brings it that much closer to home.
