    Don't forget the Republican party was still rather new... in many southern states Abe wasn't even on the ballot because the party didn't have ballot access. Many southerns were peeved to have a new "radical" President that they literally did not have a choice to vote for. Their only options being the Democrats and what was left of the Whigs

    also Robert E. Lee didn't own slaves he inherited them and then freed them because he was against slavery, hmmmm seems to me this teacher sucks at looking stuff up, I bet he's a democrat he probably thinks that the kkk was founded by the republican party too lmao (it was actually the democrats founded by a confederate general Bedford Forrest :)

      +RonPaulHatesBlacks he was against slavery but he wasn't an abolitionist, read an actual history book and look at lee's quotes, he freed all of his slaves, but he wasn't gonna free other people's slaves because it's their right to own slaves, also in the war lee,longstreet and stonewall jackson all wanted slavery to stop and they all knew it was gonna die of natural causes

    2:40 “so now that we fully understand how the civil war started...” huh? How can you feel that you’ve completely informed your viewers on the cause of the civil war when you glossed over the whole thing? You may as well have said “slavery...now that we know everything that there is to know about the cause...”

    For one when you say that the slaves here in America would have been better off in Africa is b******* because they were slaves to begin with in Africa they were sold by their King for spices and water and other trade goods not only that the Kings would occasionally eat those people and cannibalism rituals which was also known as West African voodoo where they take and create Creole which was taking over here in America and made into like a seafood stew or some crap button Africa Creole was where they took people and boil them alive and they'd still eat them while they were alive just half cooked screaming so yes they would have been better in Africa because we would have had a lot less dumb people like you

    Read this and learn a little. Research it and learn a lot. Ya definitely don’t have all your history right but you made some good points and highlighted some much overlooked history. Do yourself a favor and read “The Real Lincoln” by Patrick Buchanan then make a video on how the war could have been avoided had Lincoln had any sense and not been a war monger who used military for to shut down news paper that disagreed in anyway, imprisoned the entire Maryland state legislature in Ft. Lafayette, had Generals (Sherman and Sheridan) who did much by the way of modern war crimes, just to touch on the top of the ice burg. Slavery in much of America was a terrible thing and absolutely needed to be abolished. However killing 100s of thousand of Americans was not the way to do it. A good first step would simply have been not enforcing the fugitive slave act. Ridiculous that a salve had to make it to Canada to be free. Research how William Wilberforce got the whole started in the first place. We weren’t the only ones practicing slavery.

    union equals federalist as in not confedrates. As in the reason u do things like make money to pay rent or pay for ur car or to pay for groceries is so that u can keep working. Union needs numbers to win to keep things that way. we're all slaves and oddly enough the union didn't see color when it came to the slave monopoly thru a corrupt system that denies people the power to make the important decisions that matter and that really affect not only their lives but all future generations.

    I don’t see the problem with segregation ...like if black people want to have a black only establishment or Asians do or whites ...why can’t they? Isn’t it there right to do so? Why does everyone have to like everyone else ? I agree racism is Fukn stupid but isn’t it someone’s right to be racist? And if they have an establishment on private property then why can’t they have a black only or white only spot? I don’t get it ..I’m pretty retarted when it comes to things like this ..like I said I think racism is a waste of energy but if some one wants to waste that energy then it’s their one right to do

    So, if what Robert E. Lee was wrong, let me ask you this: why didn't black Ugandans like yourself return back to Uganda to "chill by the beautiful lake"? I don't mean to be a smart ass here, but you know descendents of black slaves in America have gone on to have a better life than Africans. People vote with their feet. Are you in a hurry to return home to Tanzania or Uganda or Ethiopia where the birthrate for single women is in the 7.5 range, AIDS hoovers around 50% and where infant mortality is around 45 per 1000? As bad as blacks have it in America, yes, they are still immeasurably better off in America and anyone who tells you anything else is lying to you.
    Do we even need to mention the fact that, GULP, black kings were the ones who sold black slaves to whites? They sold debtors, political enemies and criminals as slaves. Yes, I'm sure you're just waiting to return home to Uganda because Los Angeles is just TOOOOOO racist for you. ROLLS EYES.
    I'm NOT justifying what Lee said, but don't try and act like you'd have been better off if you were born in an alternative universe without slavery to two poor Ugandan parents who lived in a shanty town instead of the old, racist, evil US of A. We both know that is a complete fucking lie.

      +RonPaulHatesBlacks African tribes raped, killed, abused and enslaved each other in Africa, most would have been slaves anyways, regardless of living in Africa or the US. Also black americans on average clearly have a better live in the US than most black people in Africa. So to say, because their ancestors were slaves in the US now they are priviliged in compared to black africans.

    "Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it." We shouldn't go tearing down statues and monuments because we aren't mature enough to understand the history behind them. We need to know the truth, not repeat the past, and use these monuments as a reminder of how far we have come as a country. People are so offended and ill-informed, quick to jump to conclusions, and quick to destroy the symbols of things that have happened.

    You never mentioned centralized banking, and what other countries were financially backing the north and the south. Cough cough* France and England. You didn't mention Robert E. Lee in the Union Army. Said he had prior experience, then said what? regon over country? You can't blame someone back then for beying loyal to where he if from. I'm sure he knew when he switched sides the odds were against him. Brothers killed brothers slaves and Natives fought for the south.
    You don't mention the dates that the majority of the statues were erected. That would have helped your case for post civil war racism.

    Also how did confederation commit treason? As far as I know from trying to understand stupid americans explaining this shit a bunch of hillbillies with pitch forks won against soldiers so who was fighting who? To be honest i dont care about american history i dont even know why i am commenting here , compared to where I am from USA history is a joke in my opinion shouldn't be considered history yet.

  • Nate Bueche

    Classic example of the winning side writing history. I'm pretty sure the south tried to succeed because they felt that the union States were gaining too much political power. Slavery was one of the factors in that war but I think it was more of a political war. You could argue that the south fought for slavery BUT the north didn't fight to end slavery, they fought to maintain Union control and to regain taxation of the Confederate states (Slave states). All that said I'm glad the union won because this country would be terrible if the south won.

    Lol. The Civil War was about taxation without representation. Slavery was just a loop hole most people didn't care about at the time. Not to mention a lot of tribes weren't too happy about having to give up their own slaves from enemy tribes. It was a fucked up war and both sides had their reasons. It's a good thing the North won, though. Europe at the time wanted to retake certain territories and they were counting on our civil war to weaken us. However, after they saw how savage we were to each other, they changed their minds. Also... those statues need to be left alone. They are a part of American history. No one even gave a shit about them until politically backed groups were paid to "care".

    Well you have a lot of good points; although, when you pat those who tear downs statues and monuments you destroy history. Those things happened, and it stands there as recognition of the horrors of the human condition, to tear them down further moves along the narrative of brainwashing and keeping the new generations in the dark about their own history. Fucking globalists amirite? Has anyone here ever seen the Georgia Guidestones? There is a lot to surmise from that monument, which nobody I've ever encountered likes to acknowledge.

    Overall pretty good but why leave out the fact that the South realize that they were going to lose political power if more States became non-slaveholding States. It doesn't do a lot to justify slavery but it might give more credibility to the idea of states rights. Overall I think it's still wrong but you seem to purposely leave it out because it makes it more complicated.

    The South was garbage during the civil war, but we shouldn't erase history to make people feel better. Creating a nation is dirty work and it is bound to have misteps, terrible events, and bad systems in place. Rome was not built in a day and neither was America. Slavery is an ugly part of our history but it isn't exclusive to our country and to be fair it shouldn't be held against folks who are alive today and never had a hand in it. We can all agree today that slavery is bad and that should be something that unites us instead of divides us. I'm not saying forget about the past, but dwelling on something bad that occurred 200 years ago between our ancestors shouldn't prevent us from getting along in modern times.

    I do think they should still have the statues maybe not in public but atleast in a museum because they are history, and it does matter. Or even just keep them where they were originally placed for people to decide if the statue has its own right to stay depending on which person it was made after. Instead of fights and riots.

      The monuments aren't history, they are propaganda. You don't get context from a statue. Many of these monuments proclaim the CSA's fight for white supremacy as just and proper. They are a reminder for the white community to fight for their supremacist, and a reminder to the black community of their place. Not to mention, allowing monuments to traitors to stand just doesn't make sense.

    Why's your map blue in the north and red in the south? Should be flipped since the Democrats were predominantly FOR slavery while Republicans such as Former Pres. Lincoln were against it. The Republican Party was for abolishment, then afterwards when slavery was abolished and there was only segregation the democrats and republicans did a switcheroo and both parties sort of flipped their standards around.
    Also for those wondering, no, I don't consider myself a Demoncrat or a Republican. I believe we should have more tea party and independent representatives so there's less squabbling between the elephfats and A$$es. And more work being done.

    Nice video, totally agree but I would have to say that I do disagree with you on tearing down the statues because that was built back way long ago, and yes we all now know slavery is wrong but I feel we need to leave reminders like that to help us remember what a horrible mistake we made by thinking that one soul was worth less than another.

      You don't build monuments to mistakes. No one is going to forget the Civil War because there isn't a monument to the CSA.

    People want to take down statues and change state flags, but not the political party that want that wanted the expansion of Slavery to other states and start back to slave trade from Africa. If a change should be done the Democrat Party should change its name because of its deep roots in slavery.

      I believe that politicians are not the answer we need in America. It's people helping one another, but sadly we as a nation we don't help our neighbors. We look at the color and size of a person,and not who they really are as a human being.

      It still doesn't change their past. The Kansas Nebraska act and trying to pass run way slave laws and many other atrocities. True change is needed. History has a way of revealing the truth about all of our past.

    This guys an idiot, you would fight for your country if a foreign army invaded it as well. If blacks weren't better off here why did your "Ugandan ancestors" immigrate here?

      No. This isn't ancient Rome attacking some lost-to-time enemy, then demonized through their recording of events. We have mountains of documentation from that era. We know exactly what the South was saying and doing. We absolutely know their motivations. So, if you find expanding and ensuring the perpetuity of African chattel slavery noble, then that's your prerogative.

      They may have considered the US Army to be foreign, but that doesn't mean they were right in their consideration.
      People have the right to rebel, but they have to win that rebellion. Our Revolution was illegal, but we won. The South's rebellion was illegal, and they lost. One was for a noble cause, the other was ignoble.

      +Scott Ledridge to the CSA the US army was a "foreign" army..... People have the right to rebel, no?

      The US wasn't a "foreign army". If the South didn't want a war, they shouldn't have rebelled and started a war.
      Immigration and slave trade are very different things.

    If we forget the past we are doomed to repeat it, leave the monuments but ensure a plaque explains why they were wrong.

    Big government vs small independant state hood. The slavery issue was a smokescreen. Race hate and divide and conquer still serve this purpose. And the wheel turns.

      That's why primary sources are so important when someone tries to dismiss what you say as a sweet lie. Whether one wants to accept the primary sources, they are what they are.

      My point still stands. The secessionists were clear with their intent to expand and ensure the perpetuity of slavery. They published declarations of secession, speeches, etc... making their motivations very clear.

    Thank you for clearing that up for me....let's face facts, the truth considered dangerous in the eyes of those who would benefit from a lie.
