The Washington post has "just launched a new history vertical called “Retropolis: The past, rediscovered.” The goal is to provide a little historical perspective on news of the day. Early topics include why Hitler refused to use sarin gas, the fake news that haunted George Washington and a Confederate spy who vanished after he was accused of killing Lincoln. To mark the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into the Great War this month, Will Englund explained why Jeannette Rankin, the first woman elected to Congress, voted against it. John Woodrow Cox recounted how a Russian diplomat was shot in Baltimore, possibly by a German spy. Check out Retropolis here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/retropolis/?tid=a_inl&utm_term=.ac9f8829fc28.
