Influential People



History is often experienced by many as the “tombstone” of education--dates and dead people.  If we dust off some of those stones, however, we will discover that is where the adventure is!  Romance, conflict, apathy, intrigue, love, betrayal are alive in that dash between the dates on the marker.  Here you will find that history is not just a list of who is dead, but who is living!  Come ?along with us as we dig into the history uncovering the life, the places, and moments in time that brought such excitement to those who lived before us.  Who are the people?  What are the moments in time that have helped to define who we are today?
