As a history buff, I was eager to see this video. I really wanted to see it so I could laugh at how phony "The Fighting Sullivans" (the 1940's version) was. Imagine my surprise when I found out that Hollywood was actually pretty accurate this time.

This History Channel video makes a great companion to the Hollywood version. There are old stills and even the only recording of the Sullivans singing together. Be prepared for a interesting glimpse into the past with this movie, but don't forget to check out the Hollywood one as well.
