Video: College students don’t know who won Civil War

civil war1It’s no wonder America is in the shape it’s in right now.  A video posted to Facebook on Monday shows just how little college students know about basic U.S. history.

Two others didn’t even know who fought the Civil War.

The YouTube video, first posted in 2014, can be seen below:

It’s enough to make you weep for America.
