Two guys named Jeremiah and John find themselves lost in the weeds while ostensibly talking about a historical topic. Informative? Maybe. Definitely interesting. Enjoy!

Greetings. We have returned from out long slumber. We were hoping that if we just fell asleep for a month or so we would wake up in Happy Land. Unfortunately we awoke in the same Vale of Tears, so Jeremiah read a book and we got back to the drudgery. Tecumseh tried to unite the Native Americans to combat the growing American presence in the West. He lost, but his example has been handed down through the ages as a man trying to organize against oppression. Just kidding, people get excited about his command of armed combat and romanticize Amerindians without actually considering the toll exacted back men such as Andrew Jackson and William Henry Dead-in-One-Month Harrison on the native peoples of the North American continent. So enjoy another kind of depressing episode in our nation's history. But also enjoy Jeremiah and John waxing philosophically on the nature of history, and also shmistory. Andrew Jackson sucked.
