The emancipation proclamation freed slaves in the south but did not free the slaves in the swing states that were a part of the union. I know this next part is implied but I want to state it. The emancipation proclamation did absolutely nothing in terms of freeing African Americans at the time.

10/10 video btw

Pack of Storm says:

So glad that Mr. Lincoln killed all the vampires of the south…

Tbh though it was actually a quite good movie as a movie by itself just a simple horror action movie

Yoda says:

Inaccurate video: doesn't mention/elaborate on Abraham Lincoln being a vampire hunter.

Tyler Frank says:

Cool story the Lincoln court case about the full moon took place in my small home town of Beardstown Illinois.

Now, whenever Oversimplified uploads, I feel well… uncool.

On one hand, I get to see a hilarious video explaining normally boring topics in a fun way,
then, on the other hand, I have to wait another few months for another video.

Someone needs to punish him severely
