That Was History is a YouTube channel that I recently started following. Every week That Was History releases a video about interesting events that happened during the same week in history. Some of the videos are about serious events like JFK issuing Executive Order 11063 while other videos have a less serious tone like this one about Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier. Both of those videos are embedded below.

The That Was History videos are exactly the kind of videos that I would put into my course blog as supplementary material that could appear as a bonus question on upcoming quizzes and tests.
