How to Use This Blog

The posts on this blog need not be read in order. As the blog description says, they are really just a collection of random things I hear or read about concerning history. The list of labels on the left side of the screen shows the topics I have discussed so far. Feel free to browse them if you're looking for something particular, or just read straight through the posts in the order I've written them. I update often, so be sure to visit me again soon!

Edited to Add: Okay, so maybe I don't update as often as I'd like. Visit my other blog if you want frequent updates, and this one if you want cool random history stuff!

Whew! I love this one:

"From all that I have read of history and government, of human life and manners, I have drawn this conclusion, that the manners of women were the most infallible barometer to ascertain the degree of morality and virtue of a nation. The Jews, the Greeks, the Romans, the Swiss, the Dutch, all of them lost their public spirit and their republican forms of government when they lost the modesty and domestic virtues of their women."

~ John Adams

That is so true. And, sadly, I guess you could go ahead and put America in that catagory, as well. We have become a nation of extreme feminism, with our women out fighting wars and our men at home changing diapers. When will we women, our nation, and the world as whole recognize the disasterous results of forsaking our God-given duties???
