      Abraham Lincoln "all men were created equal ".

    2. Nii Tackie

      So sad that humans 😢 who have the biggest brains in animal kingdom, behaved like these! Never again.

    3. Mr. Mad Man

      Lee was actually the teacher and principle of west point and taught grant and Sherman. So respectably grant beat his teacher

    4. Kevin Onyekwe

      I was about to cry at the end, it's so sad

    5. Thomas Wasily

      Legend has it he is still protecting his beans.

    6. König Gurke

      Abraham lincolns cheekbones vs jefferson Davis cheekbones (Unions best general) Unconditional surrender Grants beard vs (confederacys best General) Lees beard (Grants best friend) Shermans beard vs (Lees right hand man )Stonewall jacksons beard

    7. Kurtis1515

      its sad to think his statue was destroyed

    8. Godly Maticness

      When Lincoln died I just felt sad. He should’ve deserved a happy life

    13. Grass Block

      Petition to invent time travelling to stop Lincoln from dying,the man deserved to be happy

    14. Grass Block

      How wholesome would have it been if they made a truce to celebrate 4th of July,like that one time in a war(i forgot which one i'm an idiot)tge two armies stopped fighing and started chilling for Chrismas night

      1. Some Weeb

        The Christmas truce in ww1

    15. Grass Block

      1:58 There is no way we don't have the guy's name. MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT HIM THAT GOTTA BE ONE OF THE SWEETEST THING HAPPENED IN THAT WAR

    16. Grass Block

      1:32 The moment you relize you've been worshipping Thor instead of God,and you regret it

    17. doeg

    19. JIANNI

      I like how the lighting hit both of them as in God wasn't on either side *seems suspicious*

    20. SorryMinati

      To think there was a man like this in the US, and on earth is a sign that people can be good I'm not even American, but man, he is an absolute boss

    21. OrderOfPhleb

      YO they could’ve named West Virginia Mississippissipissipi

    22. Sir Vulcan

      Lincoln: Why do all my generals have to be so useless, UHH I could really do with a Napoleon right now.

    23. EmeraldPickaxe

      Sure hope that Joseph brought his beans to the Gettysburg ceremony..

    24. The Legend Waleed

      Lincoln is the hero because of him USA is now in top in every thing

    37. Gustavo Carrasco

      Oversimplified: 19:52 Me: You're tearing me apart, stop it.

    38. Angela Madrazo


    39. Ivan Gemmill

      Confederates: why do hear boss music and smell whiskey?

    40. chaotixninja5

      Lincoln: "Go fight, you have more soldiers!" McClellan: "No." Oversimplified: "This angered Lincoln greatly, who punished him severely."

    41. Rui Yi Lee

      Did anyone notice the BTS calendar?

    42. Fireheart

      can you the civil rights movement oversimplified?

    43. Bob Jones

      Wow you addressed blacks demanded to come into the war as soldiers in large numbers to fight for the end of slavery. Well done I have rarely seen it brought up and not many know this fact.

    44. tulips

      The greatest personality ABRAHAM LINCOLN

    45. tulips

    48. Jason Lynn


    49. Kckeith1323


    50. Aiyan Alam

      What's the theme at the end of the video?

      1. Aiyan Alam

        or like the song, the background song

    51. Aiyan Alam

      General Snapping Turtle Meade*, not Snapping Turtle McGee, in case anyone was confused

    52. Jange101


    53. E E

      The confederates merely failed to win

    54. Simon X

      10:57 ah yes Confederate looking at k pop calendar

    55. Wibi Dharma Laksana

      10:52 gw kira siapa ternyata BTS jirr kwkwkwkkwkw

    56. L3G3ND P4ND4

      The only good generals were Lee and Grant lmao

    57. °Random_Fandom°

      I'm a stickler for US history, and these videos are full of nostalgia for me

    58. Jon P.

      Now I want to visit the Lincoln Memorial

      1. Connor Sloan

        You should go to Springfield, Il instead. The Lincoln museum, library, and home are all dope as hell, as is New Salem.

    59. AkaylaaoàpoLaiu Daniel

      Kick those csa rebels go USA

    60. misha_potiy

      I am Ukrainian and I don't see it as an obligation to learn the American Civil War in detail, but the fact the majority of viewers are Americans (as I predict it) is driving me nuts. People don't say to me that 2 30 minutes videos are everything that you know about the war!?

    61. Payton Jones

      Holy crap I’m dumb I live in Chattanooga and didn’t even know this

    62. Julie Sandine

    64. Cody Queen

      Literally made the secret service hours before he was shot

    65. The Simple Life

      Im a man of color, and I truly respect and honor all the white men that laid down their lives to fight for my future freedom.. On both sides,, men fought for what they believed in, and I can respect that.

    66. Fahim Foysal Nibir

      So why exactly lincoln was shot? I mean, what was booth's purpose?

      1. SuperRedSpace

        cuz Booth was racist towards blacks and a southern sympathizer, and hated how slaves were becoming free and that Lincoln wanted to give more rights towards blacks.

    67. Kunal Kherajani

      Hello, I'm a really big fan of yours from India, can you please do some videos on Indian History, anything you like, indus valley, golden age of India, Chandragupta or maratha empires, Mughal rulers or India's revolt against the British, anything you like, just please do some video on India, big fan of your work

    68. Awani Singh

      10:51 So they were a fan of BTS? Understandable.


      “I merely failed to win” I’m stealing that

    70. Hands

      I wish you did videos on Reconstruction.

    71. Very Angry Duck PL

      What is wrong with american Generals?!

    72. Robert E Lee

      At least I was a Better General


      Everything aside......did anyone else noticed the K pop at 10min 51 sec of the video... XD

    74. Tundraman

      I am not an American but this is truly a good history video. Worth my time

    75. General Smite

      As a West Virginian the joke about the state is fair

    76. Vanessa Perez

      Add a public comment…

    77. Karl Fitzner

      Republicans Freed The Slaves. ;-) (There was no "switch" over time...that's just what democrats say so they don't need to own their past.)

      1. Connor Sloan

        There was 100% a switch over time. It's a fact.

    78. Mike

      So the south lost the battle but won the war

    79. Amie Bustos

      I saw bts y just y but ok

    80. awesome 346

    81. Shizu Tanako

      Grant and Robert E Lee both have spine surgeries after the war, for injuries while carrying both their sides

    82. Piotr Borowski

      All hail President Lincoln. American or not.

    83. Yeniçeri Ağası

    87. Tom Curl

      That Nathan Bedford Forrest statue has been painted pink because everybody hates it but it’s privately owned and so the town can’t make it so that it can be torn down

    88. Tom Curl

      May stonewall Jackson rest in peace his death was a tragedy not that I agree with his position during the war but it’s still sad he died the way he did

    89. XY

      The real winner was the Person who didnt let them take their Beans

    90. Emma Bonn

    97. Aaron Ennis

      I was born on April 14th day he got shoot in the head

    98. Elijah Schwartz

      Sherman and grant are the most gigachad Pair ever

    99. Ben Cochrane

      The Battle of Gettysburg was in July not June

    100. Linus Enevald

      Grant was the only true great general for the union we should all respect him for what he did without him the world would not have been the same as it is today
