Did you pay attention in history class in high school?

Sadly, no. Got turned onto history by Howard Zinn and now I can't get enough.

Who is a historical figure you admire or are curious about?

My ideal destination is anywhere in the Smithsonian, whatever I happen upon at the moment is riveting until I explore it and move to the next thing!

What is a historical event that stands out as interesting to you?

The religious persecutions in Scotland, France and the Isles that led to the great migration through Ulster to the Americas.

What would you like to get from this group?

Good company, stimulating conversation, sharing of book titles and authors.


I'm a recent retiree and newcomer to the Arlington/DC area. Would enjoy meeting history enthusiasts and sharing books and conversation.
