Medieval Europe: Crash Course European History #1

Our European history is going to start around 1500 with the Renaissance, but believe it or not, that is not the actual beginning of history in the continent. So, today, we're going to teach you the broad outlines of the so-called Middle Ages, and look at events like the Black Plague, the Hundred Years War, and the Western Schism of the Catholic Church that set the stage for the history of modern Europe.

U.S. Civil War - Surprising Soldiers - Extra History

Historians have been learning that the US civil war armies were a lot more diverse than previously accounted for--partly because many soldiers who hailed from other countries and nations used adopted names. Chinese, Hawaiian, Hispanic, and Cherokee soldiers all participated on both sides of the US civil war--suffering even more conflict in some cases.

A Brief History of Konami -- CLS Side Quest

Founded as a jukebox repair company some five decades ago, Konami rapidly turned into one of Japan's most beloved publishers and developers of video games, giving the world the likes of Metal Gear, Castlevania, Contra, and more. But as the corporation became more and more distracted by profitable ventures outside of core gaming, its reputation began to collapse. Not that the company cares all that much. Today, Konami is a shadow of its former self to hardcore games consumers at the same time it's raking in record revenues and profits. So just what's going on over there, anyway? Well, to understand what's happening now, it's important we first go back and explore the past.

The English have had perhaps more impact on British, European and World History than any other nation. First a province of the Romans before becoming petty Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms, the story of the English is long and complex.

Cannabis Sativa is an annual plant in the Cannabaceae family.

History of the Alamo's Japanese monument

Most Americans know the story of the Alamo, and yet know little about the battle referenced on a memorial there. The parallels between the story of the defense of the Alamo and the 1575 Battle of Nagashino demonstrate that the East and West share a common definition of heroism.
