This is a great episode of Crash Course that I really want to highlight on it's own! I already shared the "US History series" (here: http://www.vingle.net/posts/502441) but in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I think we should all learn a little bit about the roots of colonization in America that resulted in Thanksgiving.
This video covers Jamestown, Virginia, the various theocracies in Massachusetts, the feudal kingdom in Maryland, and even a bit about the spooky lost colony at Roanoke Island. What were the English doing in America, anyway?
Tun on the captions, you'll like them!!!
