Crash Course US: Native Americans & Spaniards

John Green kicks off Crash Course US History!

Why US History, and not more World History, or the history of some other country? Well, the reasons are many. But, like it or not, the United States has probably meddled in your country to some degree in the last 236 years or so, and that means US History is relevant all over the world.

In episode 1, John talks about the Native Americans who lived in what is now the US prior to European contact. This is a history class, not archaeology, so we're mainly going to cover written history. That means we start with the first sustained European settlement in North America, and that means the Spanish.

The Spanish have a long history with the natives of the Americas, and not all of it was positive. The Spanish were definitely not peaceful colonizers, but what colonizers are peaceful? Colonization pretty much always results in an antagonistic relationship with the locals. John teaches you about early Spanish explorers, settlements, and what happened when they didn't get along with the indigenous people. The story of their rocky relations has been called the Black Legend. Which is not a positive legend.

Wonderful Wizard of Oz: Full Movie 1910

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1910) is the earliest surviving film version of L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel, made by the Selig Polyscope Company without Baum's direct input. It was created to fulfill a contractual obligation associated with Baum's personal bankruptcy caused by The Fairylogue and Radio-Plays, from which it was once thought to have been derived. It was partly based on the 1902 stage musical, though much of the film deals with the Wicked Witch of the West, who does not appear in the musical.

The Ballad of Cripple Kane

Nominated for Best Animation of 2009 for Newgrounds! And now available lagg-free as a video on Youtube.

Because of the vcam, tweening, and gigantic amount of sloppy layers, this animation always chugged in an swf player. I've neer even seen it run smoothly myself... until now!

Special thanks to Mindchamber for putting the video through after effects and giving it a nice old-film look.
