I'm not a "Historian". I'm a father, a son and a grandfather. A widowed history geek and sometimes curmudgeon, who still likes to learn new things. I started "Today in History" back in 2013, thinking I’d learn a thing or two. I told myself I’d publish 365. The leap year changed that to 366. As I write this, I‘m well over a thousand.
I do this because I want to. I make every effort to get my facts straight, but I'm as good at being wrong, as anyone else.
I offer these "Today in History" stories in hopes that you'll enjoy reading them, as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.
Thank you for your interest in the history we all share.
Rick Long, the “Cape Cod Curmudgeon”
