History and Us
For as long as I can remember, History has been my favorite subject in school. Thinking back I can actually pin the love down to two movies. Gone With the Wind made me want to study the U.S. Civil War. To be honest, the history is what I love most about that movie. The second movie is Oliver Stone's JFK. That film actually ends with the Shakespeare quote that this site gets its title from. That film made me want to read about the Kennedy assassination. As time has gone on my love for the subject has only grown. While it may have started because of fictional works, it inspired me to find out the truth. It's my major in college and I plan on teaching it. I'm pretty much a total history geek. I'm pretty excited about owning its fanlisting as I've wanted it for several years now.
We'd like to specifically thank Julie. She kindly wrote the script we use to display historical events on this fanlisting. We're very appreciative.
The title of this fanlisting is a quote often used to describe History. It comes from a quote from William Shakespeare's The Tempest in Act II and Scene I. The character Antonio says, "Whereof what's past is prologue..." It is inscribed on the building of the National Archives in Washington D.C. Considering how often history repeats itself and the lessons present in studying it, we felt it was an appropriate title.
