I am a student of history. I love history, but I don’t want to simply collect facts just to hear them rattle around between my ears. My goal in authoring this site is to share my enthusiasm for our vibrant national story with others. I remember my high school American History teacher, Mr. Miles, because he did not just teach history. He was a history buff and he shared history with interesting anecdotes about the subject, not limiting himself to the textbook.
