This probably will get buried but since i have not seen a comment pointing this out i'm going to do it myself. Sometimes in the video you use a map of France where both Alsace-Moselle and Savoie are not french territory. This is impossible because when France lost Alsace to Germany Savoie had been ceded by Sardignia/Italy since 1860. A map with alsace but not savoie in pre-1860, both alsace and savoie between 1860 and 1871, and only savoie between 1871 and 1918.

I wonder if there was anything anti-Semitic about Dreyfuss' initial prosecution. It seems like he was an easy scapegoat because he was first, born in the region that was just lost to Germany and with his first language being German, he probably spoke French with a German accent. This most likely made him stand out amongst the other French soldiers I don't think him being a Jew had anything to do with his prosecution.

And people wonder why Charles Mauras, and the right-wing in general weren’t and aren’t popular in France, either then or to this day. Especially when monarchist, Catholic, pro-army sentiment, and conservative values get tied to one of the biggest French scandals of the 19th century

I actually read a long article about this. That article said that at the end, Dreyfus still loved the French nation and army. He only quit because he was imprisoned in Devil's Island and was physically too tired to stay there.

History Matters, I love your witty manner of teaching history. I'd like to suggest more topics for future videos: 1) the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan 2) the Francafrique policy 3) the Iran-Contra affair 4) why Portugal gave up on Angola, Mozambique, and East Timor in 1975 Keep up the great work and I'll be eagerly awaiting your next videos.
