Ken Burns: Award-Winning Documentarian and Chronicler of the American Experience

Today is the birthday of Ken Burns.
In documentaries, he discerns
The nature of what came before,
Like the Brooklyn Bridge and the Civil War.*

His masterpiece: "I am passionately interested in understanding how my country works. And if you want to know about this thing called the United States of America, you have to know about the Civil War." [Ken Burns]
