    • I hope time travel becomes a thing one day. Not to the point where you can fuck with the past, but maybe like view it from a spectator aspect, like in a video game when you die. I would just want to see how things were back in the day, not based off old books and paintings, like actually be there

    • Many people forget that originally the main reason behind the Civil War was not because of Slavery. It was because of Northern industry impeding on the rights of Southern agriculture. That and the south was pro-states rights.

    • We think the Civil War was so long ago (and it was) but technology rapidly developed right when the veterans of the civil war were in their final years. So you have rare opportunities like these where in theory if Abe Lincoln wasnt assasinated he would've lived long enough to be recorded, etc
