“The past is an inheritance, a gift and a burden. It can‘t be shirked. You carry it everywhere. There‘s nothing for it but to get to know it.”
-Jill Lepore, These Truths: A History of the United States

Historical amnesia is a dangerous phenomenon not only because it undermines moral and intellectual integrity but also because it lays the groundwork for crimes that still lie ahead.

That‘s the author. Dressed as a damsel. Clearly, he‘s taking this historical research thing very seriously. #funny #historybooks #medieval #terryjones

Since my nonfiction collection is pretty big, I decided to focus on local history books from some of the places I've lived - New Orleans, Southern Illinois, and Washington.

Before being hanged Nathan hale gets the chance to tell his story and that of some of the revolutionary war battles in the form of a graphic novel. My son at 4 is probably a little young, but loves it, we are on our 4th reread. #historybooks
