In which John Green teaches you about the War of 1812. The War of 1812 was fought between the United States and its former colonial overlord England. It started in, you guessed it 1812. The war lasted until 1815, and it resolved very little. John will take you through the causes of the war, tell you a little bit about the fighting itself, and get into just why the US Army couldn't manage to make any progress invading Canada. And yes, Canadians, we're going to talk about the White House getting burned down. The upshot: no territory changed hands, and most of the other bones of contention were solved prior to the actual war. Although nothing much changed for the US and England, the Native Americans were the big losers. Tecumseh was killed, and the Indian tribes lost a lot of territory. Watch as John lays it all out for you. Also, check out #1812problems on Twitter. It's awesome.

Maximilien Robespierre promised to usher a fairer, more representative form of government to the French people. What they got was a reign of terror that saw thousands facing the horror of the guillotine. →Subscribe for new videos every Monday and Thursday! https://www.youtube.com/c/biographics?sub_confirmation=1 Visit our companion website for more: http://biographics.org Credits: Host - Simon Whistler Author - Steve Theunissen Producer - Jack Cole Executive Producer - Shell Harris Business inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org Other Biographics Videos: Joseph Stalin: The Red Terror https://youtu.be/KqfcpNrcGb0?list=PLy3kHTZWA8Oj9TlyNb3Kb3roh9AWM_nwv Winston Churchill Biography: In the Darkest Hour https://youtu.be/PrqkhCsLwDA?list=PLy3kHTZWA8Oj9TlyNb3Kb3roh9AWM_nwv
To make more use of uncontrollable sources of energy like wind and solar, we need to invent new ways to store the energy they produce. One option is flywheel energy storage.

In which John Green examines the French Revolution, and gets into how and why it differed from the American Revolution. Was it the serial authoritarian regimes? The guillotine? The Reign of Terror? All of this and more contributed to the French Revolution not being quite as revolutionary as it could have been. France endured multiple constitutions, the heads of heads of state literally rolled, and then they ended up with a megalomaniacal little emperor by the name of Napoleon. But how did all of this change the world, and how did it lead to other, more successful revolutions around the world? Watch this video and find out. Spoiler alert: Marie Antoinette never said, "Let them eat cake." Sorry.
