I'm not a "Historian". I'm a husband, a father, a son and a grandfather. A history geek and sometimes curmudgeon, who still likes to learn new things.
I first wrote "Today in History" seven years ago, thinking I’d learn a thing or two. I told myself I’d publish 365. And then I’d be done. The leap year changed that to 366.
As I write this, I‘m closing in on a thousand.
I make every effort to get my facts straight but I'm as good at being wrong, as anybody else.
I offer these "Today in History" stories in hopes that you'll enjoy reading them, as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.
Thanks for your interest in the history we all share.
