1. Grant's Shadowed Presidency
General Ulysses S. Grant is one of the most renown of the Civil War leaders. His success has been studied and marveled since the war began. It was no surprise when the war was over that he would be placed in the White House. What did surprise everyone was the rollercoaster ride he brought with him.

2. The Influences of the Persian Empire
The Persian Empire was mighty and powerful, yet few can remember much about them as the Romans and Greeks dominate Western Civilization history conversations. But their influence more than likely effects your everyday life.

3. The Proposal of the Anaconda Plan
The first Union general to implement the ‘Anaconda Plan’ was Winfield Scott. He was one of many working with President Abraham Lincoln attempting to come up with an idea to end the war quickly and with little bloodshed. He believed the plan was the right way to go.

4. Union Options Into the South
The very size of the Confederate states allowed many avenues for the Union army to penetrate and defeat the seceding states.

Reconstruction, Northern, South, Civil War, Lincoln, Booth, President, Johnson

6. Importance of Studying History
What is so important about history? The past is the past right? Wrong! Check out why studying history is vital to the future.

7. Ibn Battuta: Travels in Asia and Africa 1325-1354
Ibn Battutas account of his travels to Mecca on pilgrimage is an extremely interesting read describing the Middle East during the European Middle Ages. These descriptions can be found in many European accounts, but this one is seen through the eyes of someone native to the land and the customs.

8. Brandy Station as a Turning Point
Brandy Station would become a turning point solely due to pride. Sometimes it takes a defeat to get the fires roaring and the ambition to push harder to achieve more. That was the case here.

9. Samples of Confederate Losses
1862 proved to be crucial for the Confederacy in decision making and loses on the battlefield. In losing Nashville, New Orleans, and Memphis, the South lost strategic points in their military planning. Each one would prove to hurt the Confederacy long-term.
