History Buffs

Historical Pictures? Documentaries? How about educational videos and articles? Have an opinion on a historical event you want to share? If it's from the past, it's welcome here! From the Creator: I'm not really expecting anyone to follow any rules other than basic respect for others. However, I ask that you keep posts as historically accurate as possible. This is a group about history, and while there will always be biased articles and documentaries, which I have no problem with, propaganda and conspiracy videos are things I would like to keep away from this group. Like I said previously, please just fact check and keep things as historically accurate as you can. Thank you. :)
