comment Did barracks exist in the middle ages?
"the concept of a standing army fell out of use by the Middle Ages" - this is not actually correct. There were plenty of states that could employ professional armies (Byzantine empire, HRE, Teutonic order, prince's druzhina in Russia, Spanish Empire and many others). Also in Italy mercenaries were common.

comment Does any evidence exist that suggests Hitler’s primary reason for declaring war on America was an attempt to draw Japan into his war with Russia?
Arguably attacking the US fleet with submarines was not detrimental to the Germany's efforts in the USSR. Just the opposite: it helped to cut the supply lines.

comment Why didn't “Europe” support the Byzantine Empire against the Turks?
Venice was always against the Byzantines, It was them who lured the Crusaders to Constantinople. It seems you are confusing them with Genoa who indeed helped a bit.

comment Did early nineteenth century commoners know their royalty?
News about cardinals? Well, I am sure news about cardinals and bishops never were as important as those about the government even at the height of the Church influence in the Middle Ages. Unless said cardinals were also the ministers at the same time, like Mazarin or Richelieu.

comment Did early nineteenth century commoners know their royalty?
@Tacy Stine this depends on the age, it is possible to assume that a child or a teenager of say 14, especially a girl may not be interested in politics and not know who the head of state is or may confuse the things badly.
