Did you pay attention in history class in high school?

Yes! But sometimes it was boring ...

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

I am interested in personality and in how a society/family shapes a person (or doesn't).

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

The impact of the industrial revolution, the impact of the rise of social media, the Great Depression, not so much wars.

What would you like to get from this group?

Great conversation, friends with whom to go on history outings -- there is a house in Maryland that can only be toured with a group of fifteen, for example. Anyone game?

Introduction

I'm interested in biography and autobiography, as well as foreign languages (French and Italian). Love visiting historical houses ...
