American History

Robert Wuhl, the comedian, is, as it turns out, a very apt historian. The video is a half-hour special of a history class he teaches where he debunks a lot of American historical myths, like Paul Revere's ride, the apparently modern tendency in America to vote for celebrities, and the origin of the flat world theory from 1492. Plus some other stuff. It's really interesting; you should give it a watch.
