1. Martin Luther's Humanism Education
To understand Luther and the Protestant Reformation, one has to understand humanism. This Renaissance was a movement that would have man taking control of their own lives and souls: “man was now the creator of his own destiny.”
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 Whigs and Their Party
In a sense, the Whigs were Jackson’s “myriad antagonists, some old, some new, some champions of the American System and others its erstwhile enemies”. Politics can make strange bedfellows.
4. Bismark and Hitler
Bismarck’s flaw in unification was the fact that his plan was too extensive. Hitler did not learn from this lesson as he kept moving forward against Europe and continue to construct and eliminate treaties.
5. Misinformed about Benedict Arnold?
What do we know about Benedict Arnold? He betrayed his country. He gave America up to the British. Is that the whole truth and nothing about the truth? Let’s see.
6. Usamah Ibn Munqidh (1095-1188): Autobiography
The autobiography of Usamah Ibn Munqidh offers a window in the Middle Eastern world and how the Europeans, or Franks, were viewed.
7. On the Edge of Twilight - A Book Review
This is a story of what-if. Forget your history to an extent. World War II didn’t develop the way you remembered. This is a story of a different D-Day and a different war afterwards. The Allies did not win.
8. 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.
9. The Abyss of Politics Today is Child’s Play
I’ve said it myself. The politics of today are getting out of hand. They are reaching an all-time low. Others have said it. The truth is that it is not that low yet. The abyss of the politics of today is child’s play in comparison to the politics found in the annals of history.
10. John Cabot - Another Successful Failure
John Cabot was an explorer who set out to find one thing but discovered so much more.
