This is a place for history lovers – whether you are a world history lover or choose to keep things contained to America. Many of the contributors here have strong backgrounds in researching history, starting with their college years when they were History majors. We assembled some of the most dedicated people who focused on African American history, specializing in the African part of the subject. There are people on board whose ancestors fought on the side of the Confederacy and are intimately familiar with the culture and mind set of the Southern colonies. Add to these experts people from China, India, Iraq, and Brazil who have committed themselves to understanding their people and their culture – and communicating what they have learned to you. We hope you will be pleasantly surprised by some of the things you learn here, as we are when we share in our monthly meetings the new discoveries we find about the history of the world.
