Ready for your Monday morning history lesson?

In just under 15 minutes, this video posted by Bravura Media Company tells the story of Detroit's beginnings (including the fact that prior to being founded as Detroit in 1701, it was inhabited by three different tribes of Native Americans. THAT'S IMPORTANT, PEOPLE).

The video and concise history is interesting, but you can tell the narrator is kind of clueless about Detroit (making special note about how "cool" it is that Detroit's founder was named Cadillac). 
Detroit's history is fraught with conflict — especially with said Native Americans, but what if things had been different?
