    Love!

    I used to hate history in middle school and the beginning of high school. Probably because I had bad and rude history teachers that seemed to isolate and try to humiliate me. Needless to say I didn't get the best grades on my history tests. Until 10th grade history came around. I...

    The 9th April 1940 was a dark day in Danish

    history..The day Germany took over Denmark. I saw a movie yesterday that made me realize how terrifying it must have been. 20:35 came the message that the German forces had surrendered. But the Danes only won because we got help from England. I know there's more to the story...

    It must be because I like stories.

    I don't know how many times have I been fooled by historians, with their mixed up writings, obvious favouritism and hatred towards other historical figures and events, but I still like History. Not only because it's one of the subjects I can outright-pass with flying colours, it...

    Interesting Historical Facts

    In George Washington's days, there were no cameras. One's image was either sculpted or painted. Some paintings of George Washington showed him standing behind a desk with one arm behind his back while others showed both legs and both arms. Prices charged by painters were not...

    I'm actually thinking of majoring in history

    I like history, but I love current affairs.

    Everything that's going on in the news today is a power struggle between the US, Russia, and China.

    I love reading some things about history.

    The Worst Strategic Judgment Ever

    History is a dying subject in high schools.

    It is believed that math and science are more important and history takes a back seat. But, you can’t know where we are going without knowing where we have been. I wish high school students could see and hear the passion our founders had when they formed this nation. I wish...

    As I was watching a movie about the German Nazi

    History Is Not About The Past

    Faulkner said that the past is not dead. It isn't even the past.  He is more right than ever today. Interpretations of facts are always subject to the biases of the interpreter.  This is not new, Julius Caesar's history of the Gauls is less than objective.  In fact his...

    I'm a history major who loves European History,

    but my school seems to have an issue with it. We have a wide variety of American History classes, but that's about it. There's nothing wrong with American history, just wish I had a chance to further explore my passion.

    History is awesome. One of the key words in

    life is "Remember". Remembering allows us to learn from mistakes, it allows us to relive moments and it is full of richness. If you like the past come say hi.

    Not the kind they teach you in school.

    It's one-sided and you never get the whole story. The history books are written by whoever wins the war. If you really are interested in history, read history written from different perspectives. We have a tendency as humans to see our enemies as evil, but I don't believe that...

    The history of humans can hold my attention

    for days, a single subject matter in the news or on the history channel can send me into a world of searching for facts and events that can last for years. For example, recently I heard that the population of humans once dipped to less than 2,000. I wanted to learn more. The...

    I think history is the thread

    that unites the generations. Your family and national histories are part of your being. You cannot escape your history as it is part of your identity, and you are it's product.
