West Point Academy historian discusses whether the Civil War was fought over slavery. UPDATE3: This video is still going strong. UPDATE: Found it on YouTube and added in embedded video UPDATE2: It is online two places, total views over 6 million. UPDATE3: It reached 7 million.

 The link above is a link to a video by a West Point Academy professor about the Civil War and slavery. He points out that it was about slavery.

It has been viewed over 5 million times.

I haven't been able to get the embedding to work.

He is proud that the U.S. Army defeated the Confederacy.


The video has had 200,000+ additional viewers since I posted the link this morning 8/13/15.

UPDATE2: The video is on Facebook and Youtube separately. The total viewership is over 6 million.  Since the lunch hour update there has been 300,000 or more additional viewers to the Facebook video. The Youtube video is climbing also. Post this video on your  blog.

UPDATE3: The total on Facebook plus Youtube has just gone over 7 million. The phase of a rapid increase in the number of viewers seems to be over. I think though that it will get a steady low level number of viewers and it might have a revival in specific parts of the country when there is a local controversy.
