Video - The Colonising of America

I'm very grateful to Kevin in the Marina for this terrific video on how the USA was colonised.  It takes ten minutes and is certainly worth the time.

This “moving” map of the country, shows it from the beginning of the 13 states through the present.   It includes the acquisitions from England and Spain , the Slave states, the Free states, a segment on the Civil war.  It  includes some mentions of Central and South America , etc.
It also shows the Indian Nations as they were during the Indian Wars: Modoc, Miwok, Mojave, Nez Perce, Flat Head, Crow, Cheyenne , Arapaho, Navajo, Apache, Dakota, Sioux, Kiowa, Wichita and Comanche.
A great site, especially if you enjoy American history, but have forgotten a lot of what we learned in school.. Turn on your sound, as the narration is a significant portion of the presentation.
