About The Cynical Historian

Hey, Cypher here.  I'm the Cynical Historian.
This is a YouTube channel devoted to analytical history.  Sometimes I review historical movies in an ongoing segment called "Based on a True Story."  Otherwise it is a wide variety of stuff, where I explore historical subjects in a detailed manner in order to derive greater meaning from our collective story.

This page is where you can help support the channel, and make more history happen.  A monthly donation of even 1 dollar, gets perks like patron-only access to material.  The benefits continue from there.
