    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...

    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...

    Yes I do. The history

    that we are taught in school is complete crap. Almost none of it is true. We are supposed to live under the constitution for the United states of America which is the supreme document that can't be messed with. Then why isn't it thoroughly taught in schools? Because they don...

    The Unusual

    Not the pretty history all dressed up not to offend, the stuff that people try to bury in the past. If we don't understand how we got to the point we are at we are destined to repeat yesterday's mistakes. If I offend you, I'm sorry but maybe that was my intention to get you to...

    Historical Month

    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.

    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...

    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...

    History Defines Who We Are

    i hear a lot of people saying that it is useless to be bothered with history, since all that is already over and one shall look into the future. It is not only narrow-minded to think that, it is also plain wrong. Everything we are now and everything what we will be is defined by...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    1861 To 1865
