I love this article! Thanks
Often history books goals recycle events already covered ad nauseum
with a spin using the authors opinion for or against the events.
When someone takes the time to provide a dissertation on everyday details and family stories, they bring to life other circumstances around events we know from school or research. The how and why and the reactions of people present, often kept in their memories and journals, make reading history much more personal.
