    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 Read Encyclopedias Like They're Novels.

    History has always been my first love, the topic of my daydreams, the focus of my life. I'm fascinated by the world and what made it how it is today. I read encyclopedias, atlases, National Geographics and history textbooks. This has filled my head with so many little tidbits...

    I read a news report yesterday about members of

    ISIS destroying historic artifacts and places in Iraq. Groups like ISIS destroy these things because they are not interested in real truth. The "truth" - for ISIS, for Hitler, for the Taliban and tyrants both dead and alive - is in the lies they invent to serve their agendas...

    I think good historical research is sometimes

    undermined by the modern media. So many so-called history programmes like to attract audiences with sensational theories and alleged discoveries. When it's subsequently shown that it's mostly nonsense, they don't have to give back the money they made, so they can't lose. In fact...

    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...
