    What I love about history is

    that there is so much to it. It is years and years full of interesting people, facts, ideas and beliefs. Some were amazing, some not so much. The only thing we can do is to learn from our past and shape the future.

    I was in the fifth grade the first time I ever

    had a history class that didn't focus on my state's foundation and story, and in the beginning I HATED it. Couldn't stand it for one second. Of course it started out with Native American history, and Native American history on a fifth grade level *sucks*. You kind of have to go...

    They say if you don't learn from history.

    You are doomed to repeat it. Here's an example: Hitler's attempt to invade the soviet union. He repeated napoleon mistake from a little more than a century before.

    Abraham Lincoln Lost The Black Vote

    I got this title from a lecture by a historian at a bicentennial of Lincoln's birth . It's one of the great ironies of history that Abraham Lincoln's, the Great Emancipator, stock has fallen so sharply in the black community. David Blight, civil war historian and Harvard...

    Tomorrow is veterans day in the U.

    S. or as originally it was known as armistice day. It's the day that ww1 ended almost 100 years ago. That was supposed to be the war that ended all wars. No shock that less than 30 years later we'd be fighting another war. As long there is humans they will be wars.

    I'm absolutely obsessed with old yearbooks.

    Though I love all periods and types of history, within the past few years, I've found myself delving deeper into the trends and culture of recent history. And nothing showcases a time period's culture in its purest form than a yearbook. I guess what I'm attracted to is the raw...

    Why don't they make more movies about

    historical persons or events? There are so many stories that could be told. Why not educate people while they enjoy the cinema. With that said, I'm excited to see the movie Suffragette.

    Why History?

    I was once asked why I loved history so much; after all, what practical purpose did it serve?  A question of this nature, it seems to me, is largely self-referential, already containing, in an age-old rhetorical fashion, its own answer. What practical use is history?  ...
