The Interesting Story Behind Lincoln's Beard
Where was Lincoln's Bodyguard on the Night He was Assassinated?
In this video:
The first paragraph of US patent 6469 reveals nothing that would give the reader any thought to the future greatness of the inventor. The patent is for an improvement to help boats pass over sandbars by adding “adjustable buoyant air chambers” to the bottom of the boat.

You're miss informed about the emancipation proclamation. He didn't free any slaves with the document. You didn't take into count that the South wasn't controlled by the North. The document only pertained to slaves that the union couldn't reach, to physically free. If you make references to documents and what they did at least read the said document, not just spew the propaganda approved by the government school systems.
I’m 100% sure that he never said that about the slave market in New Orleans. It’s written in his own journals that he felt black peoples and native Americans were inferior to whites. In fact he’s given so much credit for ending slavery but the truth is rarely ever told that he said it was the only way he felt the union would survive. His speech stated that if he could save the union and keep slavery he would do so. If he could save the union while allowing certain states to keep their slaves he would do that as well. In his journal he wrote that all black people should be kept segregated from whites if not sent back to Africa altogether! The democrats in America would like the world to believe that ole honest Abe was man of democracy and ahead of his time just like they would have the world forget that it was the republicans who freed the slaves and the demoncrats who were against it!
Yeah... Lincoln was incredibly racist. Freeing the slaves was simply a political move against the Confederacy. If you don't believe me, then do your own research. Google it. He wasn't a great anything.
Lmao, no he didnt. Do real researcg dude. Start with Lincoln's 1861 inaugural address where he states he has no interest in the issue of slavery nor did he feel he had the right to change such. Im fact he even said openly, and this can all be found easily at the national archives, that he believed the separation of the races was priority. He said it was best for the amalgamation of which was likely never needed for blacks. He felt the mixing of race bloods would lead to "bastard children". He also stated, and i quote "there is physical difference that will likely forever keep the two races separate, and it must be so. And i as well as any man am in favor of the title of the supior race being assigned to the white race pr which i belong".
Seriously Vsauce, do real research. It not hard to find all of Lincoln's actual written word in this issue.
WORST VIDEO YOU HAVE EVER MADE.
The Emancipation Proclamation didn't free all slaves in the South. Technically, it didn't free any slaves. It claimed to free all slaves in the territories currently in rebellion, however it freed no slaves in the Boarder States, (states that allowed slavery but stayed loyal to the Union.) It was made to appease the abolitionist base that elected Lincoln, while turning the Union cause into a moral crusade, as support for the war was lackluster by 1862. It was also hoped that the slave population would rise up against the Confederacy and hinder their army and resources even further then they already were. I'm not trying to take away from it's symbolic importance, just calling attention to the fact that the truth of the matter is a lot more nuanced.
Abraham Lincoln was a well respected president and it's hard to separate the facts from the myths as to many of the purported actions he took during his lifetime. Many of the apocryphal tales attributed to him are based upon hearsay and much of that could be attributed to a person wanting to make themselves seem a little bit more important for imparting their alleged accounts. This is in my view a testament to a great man and leader of this now blighted country.
Adjustable buoyancy chambers does not sound workable. Detachable wheels that could be installed just before reaching shallow water and removed once said area has been passed would work much better. If headed downstream you could even use the water current to drive the vessel over the sand bars. Why, oh why, was I born too late to make fortunes off of simple ideas like this?
You need to read the Emancipation Proclamation. It only freed slaves in areas of the Confederacy under Confederate control. If one looks at this logically that means that it effectively freed no slaves. The purpose of the document was political in nature, to keep France and Great Britain out of the war. The slaves were actually freed by a Constitutional Amendment after the war's conclusion.
At the height of the Civil War on August 22, 1862 Lincoln in a letter to Horace Greeley wrote' ".... My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; ....."
Dude the immaptopn pracamation did not do anything,, It had no effect on the states that were in rebellion, and it did not touch the four states that had slaves but were not in rebellion, and it had no effect on the slaveholders in parts of northern states , like New Jersey and Maine. Only the thirteenth amendment had any real effect as it outlawed slavery everywhere in the US.
Actually Lincoln invented stairs, previously if you wanted to get to the second floor, you had to point a rocket at your feet and pull the trigger, sure it was dangerous and dehiblitating, but what were you going to do, never go upstairs? That's where your bed was.
Dawes was the 30th VICE President.
Charles Gates Dawes (August 27, 1865 – April 23, 1951) was an American banker, general, diplomat, and Republican politician who was the 30th Vice President of the United States from 1925 to 1929.
Simon..... I don’t think you know your audience very well !!!!!
First you keep recommending a YouTube Channel most of us HATE, assuring us “you will definitely Love it” (dafaq?!?!?!?), and now you are telling us we’re going to love a Podcast, when a quick look at your Sub-Reddits (Simon Miller, TIFO, BioGraphicals & Top Tenz each have individual ones, then one group one) reveals MOST OF US (your loyal viewers) HATE PODCASTS !!!!!!!! 🤨
I think we can give Simon a break on this one. That's an easy enough slip of the tongue.
Anyway, I'm certain there are far too many native born Americans who you could tell Mickey Mouse was the 30th President and they wouldn't know any better.
4:40 "Lincoln would never have misspelled his own name." Not necessarily. Consistent spelling wasn't really a big deal before the mid 19th century. For example, John Adams would sometimes spell his last name with one "D" and sometimes with two; sometimes both spellings in the same document. Another example, the last people to sign the United States Constitution were the delegates from the state of "Pensylvania". Spelling, both of regular words and names, just wasn't a big deal. It started becoming more universal when Webster published his extended dictionary in 1828. Even then, it was a gradual thing. Twenty years later, especially an uneducated man (and Lincoln had very little formal education), misspelling his own name, wouldn't be that unusual. Especially because "Abraham" and "Abram" are linked -- they're the same man in the Bible.
Adding additional buoyancy to a ship to lift it over shallow waters or to upright one . Is well known and has been used at least the 1740's. The tanks lashed to each side are called camels . Last time this came to the public notice was when it was used with the cruise ship Costa Concordia .
After reading a few comments I get the issue with the thumbnail. It's not clickbait, because that would imply that there is something false about it. But it's just not what we are used to and expect from TIFO. It seems less adult and professional than the older ones. I prefer the older look as well, but wouldn't call it clickbait. I do understand the desire to be more visually appealing and pull in more new people. But this style of thumbnail doesn't fit your channel in my opinion. The bright colors and reaction face take away from the snippet about the content in it. Your content is your strong point and why we are here. Feeling like you're trying to sell something sensational to us is off-putting.
The Charles Gates Dawes mis-statement as the thirtieth president frightened me. I thought I was caught in another mandela dimensional jump (I hate it when that happens) and expected to find that Eisenhower died during the war in Europe and that Nixon became president in 1952.
Simon, you do know that Lincoln wrote in a letter to Horace Greeley, 'If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it.'? He didn't get into the war to free the slaves, he got into it to save the Union. Link for verification: http://www.abrahamlincolnonline.org/lincoln/speeches/greeley.htm
Listening with headphones on and it sounds like a music box playing in the background for the whole thing. Never noticed it previously in other videos. I was about to go to bed, laying here in thel dark. Not now. Creepy af.
Bonus Lincoln fact #2: Although it is well known that there is no recording of any of Lincoln’s speeches, how he sounded has for the most part been guess work by scores of actors since his demise. However, it was repeatedly pointed out that his son, Robert Todd Lincoln, did sound remarkably like his father and there is in fact a recording of one of his speeches in existence.
What is clickbait about this? The video title says "Lincoln's Patent"; the video is about Lincoln's Patent. The text in the thumbnail says, "He invented What?" The video is about what he invented. The thumbnail also includes a picture of Lincoln; the video is strongly Lincoln related. The thumbnail also includes a picture of Simon talking; the video has Simon talking throughout. We deliver on everything suggested in both the thumbnail and title.
Everyone loves to bring up the Emancipation Proclamation but they always leave out the fact that he originally created it to punish the South after the civil war. It didn't apply to the entire country until later.. They also fail to mention that he wasn't exactly fond of blacks and had planned to deport all blacks to Liberia because he felt that blacks and whites were not compatible. He was assassinated before he could carry out the deportation. Many believe that the reason why he was assassinated because Democrats didn't want blacks deported since they could still hire them for labor much cheaper than paying whites.
Hold on...I thought you said in another video that he (and I apologise if it wasn't on this channel Simon) actually didn't really care about the slaves much at all, there was a quote-
*_Lincoln:_** "If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that."*
Maybe when this Brit read American history someone cut out the word vice about Dawes. Could have been an Anglican missionary or cleric who was determined to cut out all vice in any form in Britain (they aren't particularly very smart there so it shouldn't come as a surprise. )
