I can appreciate the effort, but a more truer sense would have been to give them a newspaper, or go knock on their door and start yelling about it because, you know, you're now in an excited state of mind. People back then did not have the internet. If it were the same today, they wouldn't have known much of what is going on in Israel vs Palestine, Iraq vs ISIS unless it was in the newspaper. There'd be only one or two sources or so they'd read from in a 24 hour period. They wouldn't have constant updates, or even this discussion thread. And yeah, the history is important to us all. It lead to an even greater disaster almost 30 years after it ended. It helped shape future wars to practically unimaginable casualties and losses and methods of fighting that previously were not thought to be possible. Just like with the invention of gunpowder. However, if people aren't interested in history, more than likely, your efforts will just fall on deaf ears.
