    Not 100% accurate, Britain only said they were broke but they were sitting on a good amount of coins still....And they were not like we were protecting you so you need to pay us back, they consider them citizens of England and that was English land, they wanted it solely to have claimed the land

    Cortez was the one who conquered central America and killed the Aztecs and Mayans. He probably did it because they were fucking insane after watching them sacrifice people to their Gods left and right while cannibalizing each other.

    okay, my History teacher wants me to be her helper because apparently I am the only one in the class that knows the American revolution. (Btw, I'm not from the US of A, I'm from South America) so I'm re watching this to make sure this doesn't have bad words so I can ask her to put this on class. I think this has Spanish Subtitles- I hope. Extra points, hereI come! :')

    It appears what it all boils down to is this country was founded on a lie. And it's been lying ever sense. WHAT one has too do. If one wants to protect a lie then one needs to try and tell a more convincing lie. So on, so on, and so on. To the point that many of us become awere we've been lied too from the start. But today the US 🇺🇸 public is waking up. And thoes that have kept and been adding too the lie have freaked out. Now the are inventing lies of globle proportions of a life changing magnitude. Rather then confusing it's all been a lie. Apparently they decided just see how many they can kill off befor enough of us wake up to the major lie and turn the tide 🙄 WAKE UP SHEEPLE, WAKE UP.

    I think it was a global war and this video does not put the American Colonies in context to that. The colonies were not the most lucrative not the most strategic issue for the British of the time. Europe and India respectively filled those spots. The colonies were simply expensive and thankless. Also, the colonist's were referred to as Americans, most were British or British colonists.
