Done in an interesting semi-debate style

I wouldn't call this comprehensive coverage of the times. I do like the back-and-forth conversational questions/comments style here, at least in this small dose. It encourages good questioning thinking about the people, events and choices made. It is geared for maybe (US) high school level, but I'm fine with that.
