Antonia Bialer
What happened to the series???
Renzo Guinto
Hope you make one about the American legacy in the Philippines - its former colony. I suspect this part of US history is not taught in school.
x2 Tricky
Please do one on the overthow of the hawaiian kingdom.
Mauro Contreras
The El Paso/Juarez, episode wondering what it’s about
Hannah Dahl
What about the Edmund Fitzgerald sinking in Lake Superior and also the divide between Catholics and Lutherans in Wisconsin in the 20th century?
Jasmine Honore
Would be awesome to do one on the execution of Willie Francis. Based in Louisiana but made global news and changed the American judicial system. I'm from Lousiana and didn't learn about it until college.
Nobody likes the chanting Zombies
All we need to do is somehow attach the historical events in this series to modern day whites
Samantha Eligene
Just watched the first two episodes on Black Wall Street and Wilmington! Never knew about the Wilmington situation so the video was very enlightening. Keep up the great work, these stories deserve to be told.
Oma Rumunna
Sounds amazing.
Stefan Stuart
Can you do one about Extermination Order 44, Persecutions against Mormons, and the Missori Militia murdering innocent civilians?
looks awesome!
so this video is basically an ad to ask for money so we can watch videos on "how bad the government is"
sounds promising
Aubrey Hill
But there WAS a paywall? $4.99 to join...
Please do an episode on the Secret War!
I hope to see this series tackle *Unit 731* in the future from WWII where Japan horrifically experimented on various prisoners of war, including American, Russian, and especially Chinese prisoners of war and the doctors didn’t face consequences because America paid for the information gained from those gruesome experiments.
Tiananmen and USSR please
Fátima Reyes
Amazing project guys. I hope you can adress international history, besides the US.

China's panda diplomacy, explained Missing Chapter: A new series about 1 day ago   04:51

China's best diplomats are the ones that sit around and eat bamboo all day.

China has given pandas to foreign powers long before the 20th century, but the most current iteration of panda diplomacy began in the 1950s with its gifting of Ping Ping and An An to the Soviet Union. Today, pandas are no longer gifted, but rather loaned to other countries, particularly those with which China wants to develop and strengthen relations. Not only are pandas an iconic symbol of China and its culture, they also act as diplomats in China’s global political strategy.
