Russian Fleets in America in 1863 – a condensed lecture by Webster Tarpley from 2013

What does it take to create a war?

– Forget history. Re-write history. Divide people. Pit them against each other. Conquer. Make war. Cash in the profit for the military-industrial complex.

How to undo that and stop a war?

– Learn the real history.

This is what has been done to Ukraine and Russia on a short-term time scale. But did you know that the same was done to the people of the USA vs. Russia?

Presenting a condensed and informative video of Webster Tarpley’s lecture, edited by Putinger’s Cat.

As the complimentary reading to this lecture, the book “The U.S.-Russian Entente That Saved The Union” by Konstantin George, first published in July of 1978 in The Campaigner magazine.


This is a condensed version of the lecture given by American historian Webster Tarpley in Washington, DC, in 2013, on the 150th anniversary of the arrival of Russian navy squadrons to New York City and San Francisco to assist the Union against the Confederacy in the fall of 1863.

Webster Tarpley discusses the contribution of Russian Tsar Alexander II to a northern victory in the US Civil War. Sadly, this great chapter of Russian-American relationship has been nearly forgotten in the US, even though it played a very important role in the very existence of the United States of America as we know it.

The entire talk is about an hour and a half long. It contains a lot more information about the Russian-American relationship than was cut to put this video together. It is filmed as a single-camera shot, so it won’t have any graphics in it, but it is well-worth the time!

It is available for viewing on C-SPAN as well as on YouTube:

I highly recommend watching (or listening to) this entire very informative lecture!
