This blog is a collection of posts that compare and contrast historical figures and events that have influenced and accelerated society to our present state. My idea is that personalities and events have certain traits that are alike that bring them to the forefront of the media and eventually into the pages of university textbooks and the scholarship community. My job in this blog will be to write interesting articles that compare two people or events of past.
History, in my opinion, is about people rather than dates. People make the difference with their actions and their personality quirks. A person with a positive or negative trait can influence how people live for many years. The choices influential people make determine how they are seen by generations. This is my goal – figuring out what makes people tick and how they fit into history’s timeline.
