Do They Still Teach History?Do they even teach American History in schools anymore? Not that I know of where I live. At least not a whole lot.
I have always loved to absorb facts about things long past. I'm a big American history buff, civil war and revolutionary war.
I think its incredible how they could document the civil war with all those photos!
My husband and I always made our vacations to include historical sites.
I have been to alot of battlefields and old houses, and out of them all, Charleston, S.C. is my favorite place because there is so
much history. We have been there at least 3 or 4 times. I could just take a chair and sit at the battery and look at the houses
for hours. You felt like you were actually back in time there.
I just got done watching two shows on Abraham Lincoln, even now I still learn new things about him. I visited his gravesite and house onone trip, saw an actual top hat of his. Amazing!
Its not just American history I love, I love to read about medieval times, the kings and queens etc.
I watch alot of movies that are ba
I remember in high school I had such a hard time in World History, it was all about the Chinese Dynasties, I just couldn't get a grasp
on those, too many of them. Funny thing is just from watching a couple martial arts movies recently, I picked up more knowledge
from them than I ever could in school.
They didn't teach the dark ages much, that was something my brother and I would always check out at the library. We were into
King Arthur and all that. When I met my husband he didn't even know who that was. I thought everyone knew about King Arthur, but
I guess growing up in different places determined how much you were taught.
My grandfather, he was full of my family history. When I lived with him for a year I heard all about how our ancestor started the little town we lived in. I wish I would have written everything down. My grandmother from my moms side, she also told me alot of stories.
You don't think then how you should of somehow documented all they told you so you could relate it to your own kids.
Most of my favorite movies are about history, I just can't get enough of it.
