The History Channel is a cable television channel, dedicated to the presentation of historical events and persons, often with frequent observations and explanations by noted historians as well as reenactors and witnesses to events, if possible. With many programs centering on wars such as the Civil War and World War II, it has often been jokingly referred to as the "Hitler Channel". However, the series Modern Marvels features current and historical technological/engineering accomplishments - and disasters.
The History Channel also maintains a non-profit fund called Save Our History , dedicated to the preservation of history, similar in spirit but not to be confused with the Society of Historical Preservation .
The History Channel is owned by A&E and operates, in various forms, in the United States and the United Kingdom. It is often confused with an independently-owned, but similar, Canadian service, History Television.
