I wish Puebloans were added in Civ V add-on like originally planned (who are Shoshones, literally). They and Mississipians seems so awesome, like the only genuine Northern American civilisations existing who weren't nomads.

Saint Olegs church in Finland is 700 year old.
This is the oldest building which is intact.
There are 1000 year old ruins in Finland but they are in pretty bad shape.

Absolutely wrong. But I understand how a foreigner would think that.

But the Iroquois, Cherokee, Northwestern groups, eastern groups, none of them were particularly migratory.

Only the Sioux/Dakota peoples were really nomads

>>98395364
I see. Generally, as a civilisation, we understand building-builders, who settled in the cities, like Sumerians, the first civilisation. This is how we are taught that at school.
When we learn about Native Americans from the North, it's about them being "nomads" mainly.
Of course I could see how it would differ there.
I've heard Puebloans carved their cities in the stone, which is why Mexicans dubbed them like that. And Missisipians build mounds. I don't know any other ones who did something like that.

Muslims came after 1100 AD mostly. The one in I posted in the OP is from 1010 AD.

Why is your education so bad?
That "independent state" was a mix of colonies that couldn't agree on anything and mostly tried to fuck eachother over for money and power. Efforts to form a unified American state were met with harsh opposition from Ameticans. It's not until Braddock, on orders from Whitehall, absolutely forced you together that we see a continental congress formed at Albany
The only people that even even supported were Ben Franklin and Shirley of Massachusetts
Don't forget that King George III was also Duke and Prince-elector of Brunswick-Lüneburg (Hanover). Those "german mercenaries" were his men and were obligated to serve in his wars. He did pay some other Germanic princes to give him control of some of their troops, but again, this does not make the Germans in North America mercenaries. America abd France also had German troops.

That's not a mercenary. They were ordered to fight by their rulers. The fact that their rulers were doing it for money (and loyalty to a fellow German prince) is irrelevant. Lots of wars were fought so nobles could make money, that doesn't make the troops mercenaries.
And yes, it was the Brits that forced the colonies together, forced them to build a united military, a continental congress, etc. Without the Brits forcing it, there would not have been a united states in 1776, there may never have been one.
Admittedly though, the Brits only did it because George Washington was a war criminal and an incompetent commander.

>but have a lower cost of living
Is that what they tell you?

>The monthly rent for a one-bedroom condominium in the downtown area of your average city in Canada is near CAD $907, but only about CAD $878 in the United States. This difference of roughly CAD $29 per month adds up to nearly CAD $350 in the course of a year. If you multiply that over a five-year span, you are looking at over CAD $1,700 in additional expenses for housing alone.

>Food is much more costly in Canada. One kilogram of chicken breasts costs around CAD $6.50 in the United States, while it averages almost CAD $11 in Canada. A mid-range, three-course meal for two in Canada ends up costing CAD $60. In the U.S. you are only paying about CAD $44. Finally, clothing is more expensive in Canada than in the United States. A CAD $40 pair of Levi's jeans in the States will run you about CAD $55 in Canada.

You did. Not nearly as bad as the looters, or blowing up Palmyra or The Buddhas of Bamiyan of course. But you did:
The withdrawal of coalition troops from Babylon has revealed irreversible damage to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

An alarming report by the keeper of the British Museum's Near East department, Dr John Curtis, describes how areas in the middle of the archaeological site were leveled to create a landing area for helicopters and parking lots for heavy vehicles.

Umma, a capital of ancient Sumeria
Looted Sumerian sites now resemble the surface of the moon
"They caused substantial damage to the Ishtar Gate, one of the most famous monuments from antiquity," he wrote.

"US military vehicles crushed 2,600-year-old brick pavements, archaeological fragments were scattered across the site, more then 12 trenches were driven into ancient deposits and military earth-moving projects contaminated the site for future generations of scientists.

"Add to all that the damage caused to nine of the moulded brick figures of dragons in the Ishtar Gate by people trying to remove the bricks from the wall."

That is a fucking mercenary it doesnt matter if they were forced the point is GB hired them to fight.

The revolution started with militias our continental army initially was a joke. The south outside of Virginia didnt evem really want to be part of it. The states still fought even after we gained independence. Canadians fought in the war on outside. So no they didnt force an identity. Even in the French Indian War the initial fighting was by independent state militias.

One gay Prussian you mean who was unemployed drilled our continental army. Some of the militias like Massachusetts's were actually capable fighters before he came.
>>98399890
Sort of he basically made the main army into a polished force and instituted military police. He couldn't actually speak English though. So he found a guy who spoke French to translate his yelling into English. We also had Poles build our cavalry.

We invented sniping with rifles and were good at guerilla fighting. Most of our soldiers were used to fighting Indians and French Canadians. We had major victories before any Euros joined.

Here's for the cost of living in the countries as a whole. USA at 18th and Canada much lower at 27th

Here's another cost of living metric with the USA more expensive than Canada (19th and 22nd respectively).

Do you think rent, jeans, and food, are the only things people buy? Also, most people don't live in 1 bedroom condominiums in the downtown portion of average cities. Do you have a source btw? I have one putting all of those things at higher on average in the USA.

>Early history

>Early forms of sniping or marksmanship were used during the American Revolutionary War. For instance, in 1777 at the battle of Saratoga the Colonists hid in the trees and used early model rifles to shoot British officers. Most notably, Timothy Murphy shot and killed General Simon Fraser of Balnain on 7 October 1777 at a distance of about 400 yards.[23][24][25] During the Battle of Brandywine, Capt. Patrick Ferguson had a tall, distinguished American officer in his rifle's iron sights. Ferguson did not take the shot, as the officer had his back to Ferguson; only later did Ferguson learn that George Washington had been on the battlefield that day.[26]

We used Kentucky Long Rifles that the British didnt have. German immigrants brought rifling with them.

We have very few since most stuff the natives build wasn’t in stone or outright destroyed due to Manifest Destiny and it being perceived as “heathen”. I think we have maybe a few in isolated places
>>
>>98400911
Our rebel peasants could fight them on the open field okay but trying to siege a castle with old farming equipment is pretty much impossible.

Then, partly to repay all this(and just to legitimize the new rule) Sweden became protestant so the state could steal all the churches gold, which eventually led to us invading Germany, which eventually led to a horrible Catholic queen into taking the throne of Sweden. History sure is a a lovely tale. Well when retarded goatfuckers aren't busy destroying it.

excuse me, you were right
>>
>>98401330
>>98401633
Originally they were called Marhein. They became Mannerheim when they became nobility. Presumably Swedenizing their name.

Though Carl Gustaf Mannerheim, despite having one of the most Swedish names ever, was more or less thoroughly Finnish.

I see, thanks for redpilling me then. I thought the stereotypical Northern American tents, or tipis were their only buildings, which were movable, much like Mongol yurtas, which they were using.

Those were common and are famous because of American westerns. They were found amomg nomadic tribes of the American great plains and Canadian praries. Since that was where the wild west was that what you tend to see in the old western films and novels. Even then though, they weren't usually exactly nomadic, they had semi-permanent seasonal grounds. So while they might move they were usually just moving between their summer and winter grounds.

The ones in the Northeastern U.S. also lived in bark huts and long houses. They were semi-nomadic.

Yes, but mostly small (a couple big) stone churches. Also a bunch of stave churches are still standing from as far back as the 12th century iirc (which is impressive since they are wooden buildings)
