    Although the day has already changed in Europe,

    here it is the last 20 minutes of the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie in Sarajevo in 1914. While not the cause, it was the precipitating event for WWI. While I don't care much about Hapsburg nobles, I think the anniversary...

    We Are A Product Of Our History

    What we are now or ever will be id due to where we have come from. It's our personal history. I think every person should know the history of the country in which they live. I don't think exact dates are that important just a general knowledge of what happened first etc. I...

    A Dark November Day

    I can't believe it's been 49 years to the day. Seems like yesterday that JFK was murdered. Everyone glued to the TV and grabbing every newspaper there was to be had. Watching the new media crucify a man named Oswald. Listening to every lie and taking it as fact. How the...

    Family History

    I believe family history is important too. I love listening to the stories about my grandparents and grand grand parents and how they lived, what they went through during the war and about the happy times.

    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?  ...
