A Brief History
Hello, everyone! I am Dr. Matt Zarzeczny (or Dr. Zar for short), owner of History and Headlines and co-author of Simply Napoleon with my friend, J. David Markham. Today, June 3, 2023, I want to thank the first 30,000 subscribers to my YouTube channel (a milestone reached on June 1, 2023) and also share with you that two of my favorite history themed YouTube channels also happen to be run by authors named Matt.
These are Matt Baker of UsefulCharts and Matt Beat of Mr. Beat. You can visit their respective channels by clicking on the channel names in the previous sentence. I also encourage you to check out their books linked to below in the “Historical Evidence” section of this article. Not only do I enjoy both of these Matts’ books and videos, I have also had the pleasure of participating in video collaborations with them. Below are two examples of videos on their channels in which I appear.
Working with such other channels as Mr. Beat and UsefulCharts surely has helped my channel to reach the 30,000 subscribers milestone and as such, as a show of appreciation, I want to recommend their channels to you today. As a question for my students (and subscribers), what is your favorite video on each of the following three channels: History and Headlines, Mr. Beat, and UsefulCharts? Please let me know your three choices in the comments section for this article.
Your readership is much appreciated!
