"Everyone needs to know who they are. They need to know something about their background. They need to know the traits that run through their lines and that will tell you a lot about your present-day actions. The Freedmen’s Project will fill in those gaps.”

What secrets could be in your kitchen cabinets? A 72-year-old message leads a homeowner on a history hunt. 
When Gary and Bonnie Tefft recently removed a kitchen cabinet installed in 1943 at a duplex they own, they found a notation that captured their interest: “Ralph leaves Monday for the Army.”

Everyone loves a parade! Especially G.E. Scott, who decorated his bike for the local fair parade. Happy #IndependanceDay to the U.S.A.

"I often think about how people in other parts of the world know our history better than we know it. I think it’s important to know your history in order to understand how hard people have paved the way for you to have a brighter future. . . If our children understand the struggles and the triumphs of earlier generations, it should make them more prone to study and achieve and try to excel beyond our current standards.”

Lists seem to be a trend of popular websites today, but did you know that format can be traced back to newspapers from the 1800s? It was very common to have tables of information, along with republished information and content that had been immensely popular. 
"Many 19th-century newspapers are comprised primarily of content from other newspapers."
