You’ve probably guessed by now, I really enjoy history.
I’m 21 years old and I’ve learned most of my history independently. In High School I took the United States History freshman year, World History my sophomore year, and United States Government the first semester of my senior year. I opted to take a extra electoral class which was called “Civil War and Reconstruction”. I spent an entire semester dissecting almost everything about the Civil War. I learned about the events leading up to the Civil War, the war itself, and the reconstruction of the south after the war. During this class, I learned of a relative on my father’s side who was a sergeant who died in Gettysburg.
After graduating, I’ve taken special interest in World War 1 and World War 2. Not only the wars themselves, but how they happened, how they could have been avoided, and how we could have better handled the treaties after the war.
All in all, I just enjoy learning how the human race has come to this point.
