History Channel? What History?

Today is the anniversary of the climactic moment of the Battle of Gettysburg–Pickett’s Charge. Having been unsuccessful in trying to break the Union Army on its flanks, Robert E. Lee attacked the middle of the line: and lost a whole infantry division, and the battle.

Well, the History Channel–partially owned by Disney Inc., of Mickey Mouse fame–came up with some Mickey Mouse history today when they illustrated a tweet about Gettysburg with a picture of George Washington (https://www.infowars.com/history-channel-tweets-george-washington-fighting-at-gettysburg/).  You know–the guy who was long dead by the time the Civil War started.

Oops.

Well, hey, they all went to public school, too! Who said you had to know any real history to operate a history channel on TV?

At least they didn’t show Obama delivering the Gettysburg Address.
