                This legitimately made me cry. Everything about what Abraham Lincoln fought for. And when he finally succeeded he was murdered for it. The idea that a president of the, at the time, was never even conceived that someone would try an assassination attempt. John Wilkes Booth will forever be the man that basically created the Secret Service.
                After research the secret service was in the process of being created when Lincoln was killed but only to end counterfeit money. the mission of protecting the president and other leaders and families wasn't implemented until McKinley's assassination in 1901.

                                  could you do the sengoku jidai period in japan? I think it would be really interesting to see you talk about how japan was united then.

                                          The 20th Maine's charge was one of the most epic moments in history. Out of ammo, running out of options, Chambrlen himself lead the attack, and was almost shot point black by a confederate officer, and placed the blade to him and demanding him to surrender.

I believe if he was from the North, he would gladly be on the Union side. But he was still loyal to Virginia.

When mentioning the underground railroad int pt.1 it wouldn't have hurt if you had mention that large majority of the blacks came to Canada and the rest of the Commonwealth since Slavery was banned many years before the americans.
