The Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II.
Those are the three greatest crises America has faced in its history.
That’s according to historian Ken Burns.
But it’s what he said next that ought to make us worry.
Burns thinks we’re about to enter another great crisis, and this time, it could be all she wrote for the America we grew up in.

Historian and documentary filmmaker Ken Burns says that the United States is currently going through one of its worst periods similar to some of the most horrific, deadly points in the country's history.
'It's really serious. There are three great crises before this: the Civil War, the Depression, and World War II. This is equal to it,' he said on the 'SmartLess' podcast, which is hosted by Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, and Sean Hayes.
Burns went on to quote a young Abraham Lincoln, who said in 1838:
From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we will live forever or die by suicide.
'We're looking right down the muzzle of that gun,' Burns said.
Things are getting uglier in America, folks.
Hang onto your hats and your loved ones. And stop thinking that because things around you seem stable that they must be.
They’re not, and a learned historian just sounded the warning.
