I love history. Real history, not memorizing meaningless dates from a textbook.
I’ve always loved listening to older people talk about the way things were “back then”. I love reading memoirs written by those who grew up in a time I can only read about and imagine.
I love historical fiction. Someone who has much more patience than I ever could takes a real event (or events) that I may have never even heard of, throws in a few fictional characters, and suddenly history is alive for me in a way it never was in school.
