A Thought On History

History, like most everything else, is in flux. The more you find out about it the better you are able to construct a version that you think is a proper reckoning. The study of history is an exercise in correlating the knowledge you have with the construct that seems most reasonable to you at the moment. Think clearly, brightly, thoroughly and you’ll decide if it’s worth it’s salt.

If it works for you, keep it. If not toss it. You can always change your mind with the next book or nugget of knowledge you read. Remember, no source, period or otherwise is completely reliable.

History belongs to the those who interpret it.  Research is an ongoing process.  Enjoy the trip!
