  • Why do people, who want to explain about slavery, seem to have maps to sublimely say Democrats freed slaves while Republicans were the slave owners. How, they use maps showing the North is Blue, which was the color of Northern uniforms, and is the color of Democrat Party, and instead of using the actual Southern color of gray, they use the Republican color of Red. This sends a subliminal message to most young people who know the Democrat color is Blue and the Republican color is Red. If they map was in the uniform colors of Blue and Gray, then it would not be a subliminal message of the Democrats fought against slavery and Republicans fought against slavery, when in fact the Republicans fought against slavery while the Democrats fought for slavery, passed Jim Crow Laws, founded the KKK just among the many things they have done to keep American Africans as slaves. Their most recent is getting American Africans as slaves it to get them to volunteer to be slaves. How is this, slave owners controlled their slaves and every aspect of their lives, like where they can live, what they can own, what they can eat, if they can have another person live with them, wow sounds like the current welfare system. This just one of ways Liberals try to change History.

    • @Super Novel If you wanted to use the uniform colors, since you admitted the North wore Blue then you should have used the uniform colors of the South. Otherwise you are intentionally sending the subliminal message Democrats fought to abolish slavery and Republicans fought to keep slavery. Which is what the Democrat Party is trying to teach everyone nowadays also. If you did not want to send a subliminal message, then why not use green, purple or any other color which would not send a subliminal message.

    • God damm it! Do I have to explain this shit again? The North wore blue uniforms and the south had red more than any other color on their flag! That's it! I guess you could color the south grey but it doesnt pop out as much.

  • i love these videos because we're all kinda going through life with the implicit belief that history couldnt have gone any other way, but then you watch a video like this and youre reminded of how much different things could have been. Like how much was the unions victory due to chance and randomness? lucky circumstances? i just imagine how insanely close the south came to winning the war, and those millions of black americans who would have remained enslaved under an oppressive and unimaginably cruel regime for god knows how much longer. History is wild man

  • 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.

  • 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
