YouTube Selection: The Cynical Historian’s “The Birth Of A Nation: Based On A True Story”

I wrote up my thoughts on The Birth of a Nation for earlier this week.  I usually take a turn through YouTube for some good analysis for the rougher films in that series, so here’s what The Cynical Historian has to say about the movie.

The Cynical Historian’s thing is to go through the historical accuracy (or lack thereof) in various movies that are supposed to be based on a true story.  If you were wondering what was wrong with The Birth of a Nation and what role Woodrow Wilson played in it, see the following video.
