It isn’t the one you’d think. You might think Independence Day, when the Constitution or the Bill of Rights was ratified, the shots fired on Ft. Sumter, or Pearl Harbor, but Richard McMillan, Professor of History at Pierce College argues that the actual most important event in American history was the Spanish Armada attacking Great Britain [notice I didn’t include spoilers, do you know how it turned out? Informal poll comment one way or the other before watching the video :)]. Actually it’s also a pretty great description of what happened to the Spanish Armada complete with animation, so enjoy!
Are you convinced?
