I live by Washingtons Crossing in New Jersey and act every Christmas in the reenactment of crossing the Delaware to slaughtered Brits.

You probably need a permit to tube and I can bring my shotgun.

yeah we didn't do the american revolution in school. we did the russian revolution though

we also didn't do much about lots of other phases of british history. that's what happens when you have a country with a history as long as the uk, you have to miss a lot of stuff out.

i also bet that there is a lot of stuff about the american revolution that isn't taught in american schools. for example, that it had popular support in the uk and was backed by some uk politicians

We have a shitload of history to learn about our country m8 and whilst clearly it's a huge part of American history and culture etc it doesn't really register very highly with us at all.

Not trying to be insulting lid, it's your independence and it should be a big deal in America as it shaped your nation, it just isn't taught here as I guess we have more important events in our history to learn about.

in seriousness, history lessons were more like a series of "case studies" looking at particular events in history, not a comprehensive timeline of events from the neolithic to the modern day. i think the exact subjects were chosen by the school from a list of potential subjects made by the government, but that's a guess. i wouldn't be surprised if the american revolution was on the curriculum somewhere. i vaguely remember being taught about the french revolution.

obviously we found time for the obligatory lessons on the slave trade and nazis.

They are.
My school studied the American west from 1840-1900, along with the history of protest as optional modules.
Alternates were Germany 1919-1945, or Russia during the Bolshevik uprising IIRC, along with a load more I don't remember.

Francis "Swamp Fox" Marion, I could talk about my ancestors in particular who were Veterans from Switzerland.

Think you need to brush up on your European history pal.

What we do learn about America over here though is about the depression in 1929. its effects on your population and how that affected your country and why it happened..isolationism and all that. We learn about the TVA and public works programs. We also do a bit on your role in WW2 plus some Vietnam as well, but in a more global perspective.

Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.

By god's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

And what shall we do with him?
Burn him!

It doesn't, like how we don't cover the War of 1812 in the states. Even when it is covered, they say it's a tie.

Canada+UK invaded the US and burned down the white house, we never even got to the UK. It wasn't a tie, it was a bitch slap so the UK could go back to its other business uninterrupted.

No country discusses their losses well.

yeah, we did the industrial/russian revolution too. i don't want to exaggerate, it's not like it was a constant stream of multicultural propaganda. we learnt about medieval castles, the norman conquest, the (english) civil war and cromwell.

we did vietnam actually too, so there's some american history.

It actually has nothing to do with blowing things up. Historically bonfires were originally used to celebrate the safety of the king, hence the name Bonfire night. Spergs and underclass scum use it as an excuse to spend their bennies on fireworks.

>>81670864
>thousands of years to go
Before the Romans y'all were "Barbarous savages" and were "enriched" by the Romans. Everything after that is good to know stuff but really it only starts just before the Vikings came. I love your history to be honest but it only gets interesting after the Welsh, Anglos, Irish and Scots stop doing the predictable shit

>become leader

I was doing my Ancestry shit and my line was some weird fucking Glanmorgan Nobles and there were some fucking hilarious things but not really that much detail and not very important to learn for anyone else.

Its not. In fact the British Empire is barely mentioned at all.

Been a while since I was at school but we started off young Romans, Dark Ages, Vikings, William the Conquerer, Henry VIII, then Elizabeth I when we got to 14 years old.

For GCSE (15 to 16 years old) which is optional, we start at the outbreak of WW1, then Great Depression, rise of Hitler and WW2.

Pretty weird when you think about it, we go from about 500BC to 1600AD. Then we miss out all the Empire stuff entirely and basically do early 20th century world history (1913-1945).

The Rise of Hitler module in particular went on for ages, almost like they were trying to drive into our minds that Hitler and Nationalism is Baaad mkay! I sense left wing teaching unions had a hand in this!
>>
>>81672120
it's a kind of mishmash with pagan traditions. thats why we burn an effigy of a man who was actually hanged.
it happens a few days after halloween. it's basically a pagan fire festival.

incidentally we still have those (fire festivals) on remote corners of these islands too- pic related for example- proper wicker man stuff

All i did was tell you that it wasn't taught.

This could be because its an embarrassment

Or it could be because its not good for the whole nation to learn about its failures.

for example i would assume that in america they don't spend a great amount of time learning about Vietnam, then again SJW white guild anti nationalism is prevalent among many educational institutions.

Personally i am not at all embarrassed about the British defeat, you won fair and square albeit with some help, as i am not embarrassed by many defeats that Britannia has endured in her bloody history as a global empire.

Thinking about it i would hazard a guess that if we had won, that the following the instability and no doubt ruthlessness on our part would have probably then been taught to us as standard in most schools as an example of how colonialism is flawed or some shit along those lines.

Medieval history: Henry viii and the conflict with the Catholic Church
The crusades
Imperial history
Armadas
100 years war
Wars of the roses
Conquests of India, Australia Africa etc
The rise of global commerce and the east India trading company
Then you have the birth of industrialisation
Social reform NHS women's suffrage
Both world wars
All the stuff you mentioned

And that's just off the top of my head but it all is a part of British history
Get what you mean about relevance and all that but historically speaking hundreds of years of the world's past was shaped by Britain so it's all relevant in a way

Politics is different though. In my A levels you could do a politics course and 50% of that was on America. Really interesting political system, incredibly frustrating for making changes though. Even more rigid than parliament over here

The U.S had far more decisive victories in the war of 1812 than the British. They just had the more theatrical ones. They played it defensively for the first two years of the war mind you. We conquered much of Northern Canada under poor military leadership and only got repulsed from Montreal. After they burned D.C and attempted to invade New York they were blown the fuck out so intensely we even wrote a fucking song about it. "Star-Spangled Banner"

I remember The first thing i was ever tough about Britain was in kindergarten, the American revolution.. They where the Red Coats, tea obsessed and the king was a Dick!!.. Only showing us movies and art depicting the 18thc..

I honestly thought England was a country where everyone drank tea walked around wearing red coats, powdered wigs and worshiping there king....
A modern country living in the 18th century..

I was extremely disappointed to find out a year or two later, wile looking at a school poster depicting cities of the world, That London and Britain looked just as boring as every thing hear in the US..

If you actually study or read up on the American Revolution you'd realise it was in the long run a benefit to England as the colonies in America operated at a loss financially. It also saw the end of the French dominance of the Atlantic trade routes and allowed us to secure them, as well as diminish the remnants of the Spanish threat.

Which in turn bankrupted France, prompting their own revolution. Trade is everything, money is everything. Land, sentimental values, easily replaced with money.

I mean who wants to keep rebuilding towns that were burned down by the French (Seven Years War) or by Native Americans (Pontiac's Rebellion) because Washington was incompetent?

Why would we defend or secure the 13 colonies when the French tried to invade our money making factories in the Caribbean?

History is interesting, if Americans truly delved in and studied their revolution in depth they'd realise that it crippled them financially and catapulted England into becoming the Empire.

America being a faggot helped birth the worlds greatest empire. So in short, thank you America. Appreciate it.

I sincerely doubt Russia would've had the capabilities for a cross channel invasion. Had the US not """intervened""" Germany would've still lost to Russia but the Ruskos would've sustained astronomical casualties. The optimistic outlook for Russia would've been an entire assimilation of Germany, not just the Eastern front, but not much else.

Most historical scholars have concluded that the war could've been won without US assistance albeit at a longer rate. Credit where credit's due though, you helped shorten the war.

No that's not what it's about at all you retard. Fort Mchenry WAS invaded. It was being bombarded by the British with weapons far more advanced than ours at that time period. However no matter how effective the bombardment miraculously the soldiers garrisoned inside withstood little to no casualties. When the British realized they couldn't force passage by bombarding the fort Charles Napier tried to lead the fleet around it through the western river and got his forces split in a sudden storm. They were turned back from the River under heavy fire from Fort Covington, sustaining HEAVY casualties. The invasion lasted 25 hours and at the end of it both Fort Covington and Mchenry still stood with little to no American Casualties. That's the reason it was put into song. There's no logical reason we won that engagement, if it wasn't for that godsent storm we likely wouldn't have our national anthem.

if you want it in chronological order

>Hastings
>war of the roses
>Henry 8th and the religious wars of his decendents
>Lizzy 1st, bit on James and the downfall of Charlie
>slave trade
>Victorian era and span of empire (no specifics, mostly focused on India and kangaroo land)
>WW!/WW2

then GCSE level did WW2 in depth, and the various wars with the french and spanish. Most people drop history at this point as its a bugger. I think only 8 people did it in A level in my school.
