    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!?

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

    • 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.

    Lee was overhyped as fuck. His "masterpiece" was a useless slaughter that caused the Confederacy to lose one of it's best generals. I suggest watching Atun-Shei Films' video on Confederate Generals.
