    ^_^ Thank you all, I hope to have fun here. I know history is not one of the most popular fields out there, in fact I've gotten several o.O looks from my family, but I think that had more to do with the sheer number of those studying history in my family, last count there was four including myself.

    Thanks again,

    Nice to see another history-head actually admit it. I am majoring in Management with a minor in Military History. But why are people so enthralled with things that are dead, gone, and buried? Sometimes there are lessons to be learned from history, but what does knowing the exact location and method of the first successful widget fabrication have to do with my life?

    Any history buffs out there care to share?

    Actually my history professor said it best this year. A while ago he was asked why study history, the pat answer many come up with is, "We study history to learn from our past mistakes so we won't repeat them." Ha!!! if that was the case we'd have stopped war centuries ago... his reason for learning history is that there are things repeated throughout, but if we study them we'll see that while those times had been hard, people made it through and showed perserverance. Perhaps we can learn from that.
