  • The only reason why Lee seems to be winning every battle is because most battle during the civil war was intiated by the union offense, Lee most of the time had a homecourt advantage, he knows the geography of virginia hes home state better than the union does, but you all know what happend to lee when he tried to attack the north, the union had the advantage and kicked Lee's butt, now imagine what if the confiderates are the ones doing the offensive most of the time, Lee would have been critiize as a Butcher too.

  • A little sad that there was no mention of the Irish immigration supporting the Union troop numbers but this was a great watch. Oversimplified isn't going to get all the details but what really impressed me was the accurate showcase of the politics leading up to this upheaval. Well done.

  • I love the derpy horses in your animations! Also the 13th amendment did not entirely end slavery, as slavery may still be used for punishment of a crime. Also, Grant was the alcoholic that he's commonly depicted as. That is left over from the propaganda war the south won after the civil war ended

  • Thank you for your service and commitment Abe, the first Republican. ❤️ And now today, it’s ironic Democrats are taking down Democratic confederates and slave owner statues. 😂💀 But as of recently, they vandalized the statue of Abraham. That’s where I draw the line because hell nah. I don’t care about the democratic figures in the south, but Republican figures like Abraham? Like they vandalized it with poop and paint. By the way, the big switch got debunked. Democrats still rule over poor minority neighborhoods with nothing changing while the south became less racist and more welcoming as democrats left. There’s some other things that debunk it of course.

    • @CurtFish Films Wrong, each side had conservative values as well. Faith and the right to bear arms. Not only that but it went on until the 1964 civil rights act where republicans as a percentage of their party voted more in the house and senate, while some democrats tried to sustain a filibuster against it and LBJ formulated a new plan and gave them the green light after the filibuster was broken. After which the south was contested and there was a lot of splintering until the 80’s/90’s with newer generations becoming republican and as old kkk leaders and democratic leaders left or died they became more reliably red, with Dinesh D’souza counting up those notable leaders as staying democratic with less than 1% of them converting, and approaching into the 2000’s with modernization and bigotry becoming taboo, is it coincidence that a whole region became less racist as it became republican? No, not long ago South Carolina voted in a black republican locally over a white democrat, and now Candace Owens conservative followers wants her to run for potus in 2024 against joe Biden, who is also a racist democrat if you look up some things he said back then and today, with 4 infamous lines, and being responsible for the 1994 crime act which got many blacks incarcerated and killed along with 2A restriction. It’s weird how LBJ says “we’ll keep those n words votin democratic for the next 200 years.” And strangely those plantations moved to cities/poor neighborhoods where people are conditioned to vote democratic every time but their quality of life stays the same while local democratic politicians get rich/have power. Meanwhile many foreigners have mentioned preferring Texas/the south today because there is a warmness/welcoming vibe and people don’t mind debating about worldly topics, as opposed to northern cities or Cali where people are programmed to believe the same thing and won’t be open to new ideas or traditional beliefs even if you are a conservative of color or are gay, the people are cold and distant etc. A lady from Asia said she preferred Texas because they were welcoming/hospitable and that a white man there walked/helped her figure out how to get home because she was lost, but when she went to the north she found it depressing.

  • I've watched this series at least three times, and the ending made me choke up every time. Despite myself, I've always been a very pessimistic American; I feel jaded and disgusted as a white man when I learn what my ancestors have done since they came to North America. However, when I learn about people from our history like Lincoln, despite the valid and substantial criticisms I know exist of him, it always reinvigorates my desire to keep pushing our country towards the ideals it was founded to represent. Lincoln gave everything he had because he believed that the Union was worth preserving, and hundreds of thousands of people, of all genders, colors and creeds, did the same. And so I think what I've come to learn from these videos, and as I become more and more educated about my country's history more broadly, is we have completely and utterly failed to live up to our founding ideals. But that never has meant, and never will mean, we can't in the future if we, as a nation, decide to finally make it so. And it's that hope that someday we can make the U.S. take the steps to get there and become a country where all Indian tribes are recognized, our treaties with them respected and equal representation granted to them as valued and respected citizens of both their tribe and the U.S., as well as where we've finally lifted the remnants of slavery and Jim Crow off the shoulders of all our non-white brothers and sisters. It's corny and lame, but this is my honest, genuinely held belief so I honestly don't care: Lincoln always reminds me of our true motto E Pluribus Unum, and I think Lincoln's story is best used as inspiration for us to keep working until our nation finally, truly reflects those words.
